Indigenous people have had a profound relationship with nature and its rhythms, including the world of the stars. Humans have celebrated their connection with nature with festivals, rituals and activities for thousands of years. Calendars, poems and songs were an integral part of the ritual year and they were also used in agriculture. This knowledge was transmitted through folk stories and practices in the past but it is almost lost in our day.
We will explore, share and rekindle ancient traditions from different parts of the world through small group work and intimate settings. We would like to create contemporary biodynamic research topics based on ancient knowledge to bring new light to our present agriculture practices.
