Mending Medicine: Reconnecting with the Elements

The elements are always communicating with us. But as modern people, we have fallen out of touch with tuning ourselves to be in relationship with nature. The Kontomble, like many nations of ‘little people’ around the world, are guardians of the Sacred and guardians of the Earth. They have been known as the the Kontomble, the Menehune, the Huldufolk, the Patu-pai-arehe, and the first humans. These spirit-beings have unfailingly carried tradition, art, music, medicine, memory, and hope across the ages. They are our relatives, our teachers and allies. And they have not fallen out of the primal dialogue that is continuously occurring with nature. They are messengers who are willing to help us bridge the disconnections and remember reverential ways of relating with the elements. We will come together with the Kontomble to listen to their own wisdom as well as the messages they have to share from the spirit-beings of nature. We will reconnect with the elements and begin to mend these sacred relationships. We will honor the elements once more.

Liv is an initiated Kontomble Voice Diviner, speaking in the tongue of the 'little people'. She studied and apprenticed with Malidoma Some for 8 years and spent months at a time working with the diviners and shamans in Burkina Faso, West Africa. She currently teaches workshops and facilitates rituals throughout the U.S. and abroad to help connect people with their ancestors, Kontomble, as well as other elemental forces. She also co-founded the Sacred Elemental Wisdom School with Dr. Kat Coder to empower women in their profound connection to the elements and their own inherent wisdom to transform and blossom on their spiritual path.  

This ritual will be offered in service to community. As such, we hope that the medicine of the day may be able to reach any and all who are called to join us in ceremony and community.
