Dear Medicine Festival
A reminder of what the Medicine Festival Stands for:
Medicine is a registered Community Interest Company (C.I.C). All profits will go to help empower indigenous peoples to preserve and protect their land, traditions, and wisdom. The gathering aims to inspire and empower the deep regeneration of our hearts, our communities, and our world.
Medicine is about interweaving communities and bridging cultures – wisdom keepers, indigenous communities visionaries, artists, and solutionaries of all traditions to inspire and ignite a deeper understanding of how we can tread lightly, and live harmoniously as we support each other in the creation of the world we want to see – an equitable and thriving world.
Remember our birthright as a vital part of nature, living in sacred reciprocity- every breath – regenerating a world where all beings are honored in their sovereignty, loved in their difference, and seen as vital participants in this divine interplay of life. Our vision is a world where nature is cherished, peace is revered and difference is celebrated; where humankind has reclaimed the gifts of gratitude, and guardianship for all life.
In light of the urgency of the situation and the need that some resolution is reached by the end of play Friday night.
I’m calling a meeting between Medicine Festival and Jojo to discuss the full and final resolution of this tragic incident which has now been going on for over 3 years.
Wouldn’t it be great if this could be finalised before the upcoming medicine festival and everyone can dance and sing and pray with full love knowing that the whole festival isn’t party to a Conspiracy of untruth and deceit? The highest outcome for everyone concerned including all the many people that are putting their heart and soul into the Medicine festival, the thousands of hours of love and intention.
The best outcome in my humble opinion is that medicine festival finally admit their liability for this incident and agree compensation for Jojo. Then we can all forgive each other for the trauma and pain and stress that has been caused by this refusal to admit the truth and we can move on, empowered by the fact that we have done what is right. We can stand in full integrity in a world where justice and deceit is the norm, and stand in the power knowing that we stand for light, truth and justice.
Anything else will surely be a dark stain on the whole upcoming festival and reduce everything you have done to something that we all know, and I don’t even feel the need to express here. We have all I assume sat with grand mother at some time and felt her harsh retribution for inauthenticity. I hope and pray that this will be avoided, because lack of integrity cannot be hidden for long. Why I even feel the need to express the above is itself proof of how badly this whole situation has been handled so far.
Let’s not downplay the seriousness of the situation and the need for you to take whatever time is necessary even though you are in mid festival mode to resolve this matter.
I am calling a meeting on zoom with all parties tomorrow evening at 8pm.
Somesh De Swardt is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
