How can we flourish reciprocal and diverse ecosystems that honour our ancestral wisdom, joy and sovereignty?
In this episode entitled Revolutionary Ripples Of Joy, Amisha talks to Diane Ghogomu, an Afro Cosmic ceremonialist, somatic sexuality educator and musician building and curating joy-centered ritual spaces applying her teachings as pleasure scholar. She nurtures regenerative social, economic and spiritual systems that call us into harmony with ourselves and nature. Diane is deeply initiated and devoted to multiple nature-based spiritual traditions in both Central Africa and South America. She is curator at Noma Collective and co-director of Cacao Love, a regenerative organic cacao company funding her non-profit ‘Afrocosmic’, which invests in the cultural and spiritual sovereignty of African and indigenous wisdom keepers and artists around the world.
Amisha and Diane speak about the sovereign regenerative community and retreat space Diane is co-creating in Watamu, Kenya. Rooted in collaboration with the local ecosystems the community embraces ancestral architecture, agroforestry, permaculture and the life-giving powers of spiritual and cultural traditions.
Diane shares experiences gathered during her life’s journey across different cultures in search of embodying her highest purpose :: joy and pleasure. She reveals her calling led her to live in the mountains of Argentina, Osho communes in Brazil, to sit with plant medicines, such as Ayahuasca in South America, to multiple initiations and experiences with Iboga in the Bwiti tradition in Gabon, and time studying Afro Cosmic Spiritual traditions with the Baka people in Cameroun. They share that understanding our cosmology and anchoring ourselves into sovereign communities is the antidote to destructive monocultures that have stripped us bare of our fertile relationships with the land and the cosmos.
We learn that cultivating our erotic powers of pleasure and joy causes revolutionary ripples that animates cosmology and reciprocity. It is a way of bringing us into synergies with ancestral technologies and wisdoms that can unify our communities in cultural, spiritual and economic sovereignty ultimately transforming destructive systems of colonial legacies.
