The Facilitators: Holding the Space of the Mother
Rutendo Ngara is a weaver of tapestries. She loves The Big Picture – the interwoven connections between the stars, the environment, society and all aspects of NaTuRe. She is equally intrigued by the Little Picture – all the tiny composite parts that make up the Whole. She is fascinated by telescopic visions into cosmic consciousness and microscopic investigations into quantum reality. She weaves interconnectedness, interrelatedness and interdependence into a basket of existence.
Rutendo kicks ass (Yes! She is a martial artist!) and has represented South Africa as a Protea Athlete and international silver medalist in Tai Ji Quan. She loves sparring with the ‘ologies’ – cosmology, epistemology, ontology, teleology and may be found giving a lecture or facilitating a workshop on how they apply within Indigenous Knowledge Systems.
When she is not flowing through Wushu, Yoga or Dance, she applies her mind as a Transdisciplinary Researcher, with a background in electrical engineering and biomedical engineering. Her professional interests have spanned through fields such as clinical engineering, healthcare technology management, socio-economic development, mathematics, leadership and fashion design; to the interface between science, culture, cosmology and paradigms of healing. Although she is a priestess, counsellor and diviner, she does not believe she is a healer – but rather a mirror-reflecting-the-sun, who ignites others into their own healing superpowers.
Rutendo is co-founder of Ancient Wisdom Africa and sits on a number of boards, councils and working committees – including the Credo Mutwa Foundation, Assegaia Alliance, Earthrise Collective and the South African Wushu Federation.
Rivers are her respite, forests her fortitude, mountains her mainstay. She is an advocate for NTU – the all-pervasive force that permeates Time and Timelessness, Space and Spacelessness. At the age of 10 she knew she had to write a book. Like her doctorate, it is still on retreat, and will be born soon…
