The Spirit of Ubuntu: Black Lion Roars

With Sicelo Mbatha

Is it too late for humans to restore their belonging within the natural world? In this free event we talk with Sicelo Mbatha from the Zulu tradition about his potent and transformative approach to being in community in the wilds of South Africa, and how this urgent recovery of primary relationship with our other-than-human kin is essential for survival.

Sicelo Mbatha

Sicelo is a wilderness guide working through Umkhiwane Sacred Pathways. He has dedicated his life to fostering deep connections between humans and nature. He believes that this medicine is needed to heal the world from the wounds of environmental destruction and social injustice. Drawing from his Zulu culture and a yearning to better understand human’s relationship with nature, Sicelo has forged a new path with an immersive, respectful and transformative way of being in the wilderness. His book, Black Lion, is an urgent reminder of how much we need wilderness for our emotional and spiritual survival.
