For all of you who have seen the Global Spirit program "From the Heart of the World," you might find interesting this recent update from the director, Alan Ereira:
"I thought you might like to know that have just returned from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, where I was suddenly summoned at the end of April. I was called to attend a large gathering of Mamas at one of the highest sacred places - a place where I had never been, and where outsiders are not normally welcome. There was a most remarkable speech, spoken by a very senior male Mama and echoed almost simuItaneously by four female Mamas ("Sagas"). They were, in effect, the voice of the Mother behind his words. I was allowed to film this on a mini-HD camera.
The speech was a statement of their present situation, which they regard as critical ("as serious as the Conquest itself"). They high sacred places are being fatally damaged by soldiers and guerillas, and as a result the life-essence of the planet is failing. In order to make what is in effect a last-ditch effort to save themselves and the world, they are undertaking a fundamental re-organisation of their way of communicating with the outside world. They believe that it is still possible to turn things around, and intend to do that over the next four years.
I was asked to give a full description of what has taken place with the film and my assessment of it. I was then told that it is a high priority that I should make a new film with them, to bring Younger Brother to a fuller understanding of their own vision of reality. They have been preparing for this work for some years, and have trained their own media unit(!) to work with me.
The plan they have been discussing is quite astonishing, and I am now waiting to hear exactly how they want to proceed."
