We aim to bring global awareness to the fact that the Amazon is in the 11th hour

And, since the Amazon is the lungs of the Earth, so are we!

(More than 20% of the world's oxygen is produced in the Amazon Rainforest)








THE AMAZON BASIN

The Amazon Basin is located in the countries of  Perú, Bolivia, Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador, Guyana and Venezuela. The Amazon rain forest is the largest in the world, covering about 3,179,720 sq mi with dense tropical forest. It has been called, The Lungs of the Earth, and James Cameron (see clip below) refers to the Amazon as:

"The Last Great Bastion of  Nature."


The Amazon Basin is home to 50% of all species on Earth!


95% of our North American old growth forests are gone, not to mention what happened to the native peoples of North America. We can't allow what happened in this continent to also occur to

the forests and indigenous people of South America!


OBJECTIVE

To provide community building, performing art shows, made up of dancers, musicians and singers representing cultures from around the world. To promote awareness of the need for humanity to avoid irreversible damage to our living, breathing Mother and to the Peruvian Amazon in particular. To send emissaries to the Peruvian Amazon to learn from indigenous elders and shamans their ancient Earth wisdom before it is lost forever. To raise funds to help the indigenous cultures of the Peruvian Amazon keep their ancestral lands and their medicinal plants which may one day provide cures to many of our modern day illnesses.




PROCEEDS

20% of the proceeds from this show will go to raise funds to help support Eda Zavala Lopez's work with the Chirikyaku  and Chipaota Indigenous Communities of the Peruvian Amazon. Her life's work has been about protecting their ancestral lands and their medicinal plants, which may one day provide cures for many of our modern day illnesses, (please see video clip below). As we help the wisdom Keepers of Mother Earth, they also help us through sharing their medicinal plants and ancient Earth wisdom. These nations and their lands are being wiped out by illegal gold mining, oil drilling, mineral mining, cattle ranching, illegal logging and the knowledge of their elders and potential cures for many diseases (plant medicines) are being lost forever.


  • Most medicine men and shamans remaining in the Rainforests today are 70 years old or more.
  • Each time a rainforest medicine man dies, it is as if a library has burned down.

  • When a medicine man dies without passing his arts on to the next generation, the tribe and the world lose thousands of years of irreplaceable knowledge about medicinal plants.

  • 50% of the proceeds will also go to raise money to send shamanic apprentices from North to South America to learn about ancient healing practices and an ancestral system of caring for the Earth from the natives and elders who remain connected to their sacred lands in a reciprocal manner.  




    Mother Earth has not forgotten the native people of the Amazon
    and neither have we...

    What we do to the Earth we do to ourselves

    Let us give back to Pachamama (Mother Earth) who gives us life

    Let us awaken and create a renewed, sacred relationship with our Mother

    For she is a living breathing entity, alive and in need of our protection

    Let us empower the feminine, the gateway to our hearts,

    for in connecting to our hearts we heal the planet

    Our natural support systems are on the verge of collapsing unless radical changes

    are made to preserve the world's biodiversity.

    A joint report released by the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the UN Environment Program (UNEP)  


    This collapsing biodiversity is a 'wake-up call for humanity
    '.

    Business as usual is no longer an option if we are to avoid irreversible

    damage to the life-support systems of our planet.
