World Africa Day - May 2024

🌟 Celebrating Africa Day 🌟 

🔥 Date: Saturday, 25th May 2024 🕔 Time: 17:00

📍 Location: New Acropolis Centre, 467 Jan Smuts Ave, Blairgowrie 

Dear Seekers of Ubuntu, 

As the sun dips below the horizon, casting its golden hues upon the New Acropolis Centre, a mystical firepit awaits. Gather close, for on this enchanted evening, we celebrate African Day—a tapestry woven with threads of unity, wisdom, and ancestral magic. 

🌿 Ubuntu Philosophy: “Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu.” Translated, it whispers, “I am because we are.” These words echo through time, resonating with the heartbeat of community. Ubuntu, like a delicate spider’s web, binds us all. It speaks of interconnectedness, where our individual flames merge into a radiant bonfire of shared existence. 

🌟 The Ethical Fire: Imagine a circle of souls, each holding a piece of the cosmic puzzle. Here, we transcend the mundane, stepping into the realm of moral responsibility. Ubuntu beckons us to uphold the highest standards, for when one ember falters, the entire constellation trembles. Our communal fire dances with the echoes of ancient wisdom, urging us to be stewards of goodness. 

🔮 The Smoking Ceremony: As twilight settles, we embark on a journey. The firepit becomes our portal—a gateway to the ancestral realm. We gather fragrant tobacco leaves, their whispers mingling with the crackling flames. With reverence, we honor those who came before, their spirits dancing in the tendrils of smoke. Our bodies remain grounded, yet our souls soar. 

🌟 Your Invitation: Wrap yourself in warmth, both physical and spiritual. Wear your Ubuntu spirit like a cloak—the fabric of compassion, woven with threads of respect. As the firelight dances upon your face, remember that you are part of something greater—a constellation of souls, bound by shared purpose. 

🌿 Note: Our ceremony remains pure; only tobacco fuels our flames. Let us preserve the magic, undiluted. Together, we’ll kindle hope, ignite understanding, and weave our stories into the cosmic tapestry. 

Join us, dear traveller, as we gather around the firepit. Let Ubuntu’s ancient whispers guide us, and may our communal flame burn brighter than the stars.
