School of Ancestral Wisdom
The Voice of our Ancestors
With Tambora we seek to rescue, preserve and propagate the knowledge of ancestral medicines of national and international origin and emphasize its value for cultural, social and environmental sustainability. To achieve this, we consider very important to generate traditional teaching circles from different cosmo-visions and spiritual currents of Colombia and other countries with similar views to respect for nature as a fundamental basis. For the development of this idea, we design dance and drum workshops, circles of song and word, traditional weaving and the construction of sacred houses and temples with the guidance of wisdom keepers. We also consider very important to share and teach the use of natural and ancestral medicines under the supervision of traditional guardians.
As a result of this vision, in March of 2019 we officially launched the "School of Ancestral Wisdom" in Bogotá, Capital of Colombia with the intention of connecting the modern world with knowledge and ancestral practices especially in the cities where it is so needed. Thanks to the different generous donations that Tambora has received, we managed to manifest an economic support to three wise Elders to cover their monthly rent and their basic needs for a whole year. Thanks to these donations we also have the possibility of offering assistance to the teachings with voluntary contributions from the participants.
