Everybody who is dealing with abrupt climate change leading to a climate catastrophe will stumble upon different emotions, that may be summarized as grief. In this 14th episode I am honored to introduce a wonderful woman to you, who dedicates herself to offer grief rituals: Azul-Valerie Thome.
My guest, Catherine Thompson is leading an extraordinary life. Born in Canada, she is living a somewhat nomadic existence mostly in the west of Canada. In the years of 2011-13 she traveled, on horseback, more than 2500 km through the southern plains of Saskatchewan and Alberta. She is presently based in a small mountain village in the north of Thailand where she has set up a musical instrument making and composing studio.
Back again! In mid-November 2016 I have been in an African village to participate in a ritual for grief and life energy with Sobonfu Somé. Now you can listen to the English version.
Sobonfu died some weeks after this event. This is my tribute to her.
