Mama D Ujuaje

Co-curator of The Food and otherworldly sensory Journeys. I am a natural and life-long learning facilitator, teacher, sharer, co-learner through plant whispering and embracing the mysteries of the primordial. I am in the constant process of exploring the interfaces of modernity with pluriversal positioning.

As a life-journey guide, I work towards encouraging people of all descriptions to embrace agency in affirmatively reshaping our shared environments. I encourage considerate, mind-and-body-full and wholistic living through the use of a range of enjoyable, reflective, engaging and sometimes disruptive experiences. Transformation, I feel, requires at least momentary detachment!

I have worked in different physical environments, learning from all the elements that make them up and now realise that there is still more digesting to do. Food is such a good metaphor!

As part of my learning journey I have explored food and agriculture, forest resources and environmentalisms, urban growth and its interface with water and health and rural and urban community development. More recently I am re-embracing earlier explorations of food, medicine and well-being, soil and shamanic knowledge, global histories of food and nourishment and post-traumatic learning and diffusions.

I work at soil-soul level where the grass roots are to be found, I support the navigation of our relationships within the context of the ordinary extraordinary and using the me-ness of us-ness to bring Ubuntu irrationalities into our exchanges. I am in the process of reconstituting love so that it can bring care back into community.
