Tounché (pronounced /TOON-SHEI/)

GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS SUMMIT

[Tounché means SHIFT in the Yorouba language of Benin & Nigeria.]


 
A new kind of heart-based all-inclusive conscious leadership is called upon us to lead the necessary revolution to create a more loving and compassionate world where all can thrive: humans, animals, nature, cosmos. We are all called to be Conscious and Sacred Leaders. Connected Leaders who transcend the illusion of separation, have a humble and reverent approach to the world, who lead from a profound and serene place of alignment with ALL.
— Swaady Martin, Founder Global Consciousness Summit
 

Held on sacred locations around the world, Tounché Global Consciousness Summit is a day-long lifechanging and inspiring soul retreat facilitating the shift within - awakening and nourishing our full potential - encouraging positive change in all aspects of our lives, and by extension, the world we share. Together, we elevate our collective vibration as a creative, loving and caring community. We heal and inspire one another through dialogue, consciousness, yoga, music, dance, performance, sustainability, art and connection with nature. Tounché is a truly diverse gathering seeking to open a dialogue and offer solutions while creating an unforgettable healing experience.

We’ve arrived at defining crossroads on our evolutionary timeline. Evolve, or cease to exist. In the midst of great turmoil, as old systems crumble, we have a unique chance to consciously create a paradise for all living beings. Our curiosity and exploratory minds had us touch every corner of this round globe. We have made great leaps yet at a cost that is now threatening the wellbeing of all. The innate healing mechanism of Earth is taking the necessary measurements to ensure her thriving as a living, breathing organism. The question for humanity is not, will we save the Earth? Earth has maintained herself for millions of years, and she will carry on protecting herself. The question is, will we be here to witness it? The choice is ours. We have the opportunity to embrace our own destiny. 

She’s our Mother. And now is the time to honour her in a way that not only ensures our survival but will allow us to thrive in a harmonious relationship with all life.

If you feel an awakening happening inside, join Tounché Africa edition 2019 wholeheartedly. Allow our wealth of wisdom keepers and way-showers to inspire and empower you. Tap into your greatness. You are here because you knew it would make a vital difference. 

Let us join hearts and hands in honour of Mother Earth, as we collectively give birth to a new consciousness.

Inspired action to co-create a more loving compassionate world

A new kind of leadership is called upon us to lead the necessary revolution to create a more loving and compassionate world where all can thrive: humans, animals, nature, cosmos.

Leaders who transcend the illusion of separation, have a humble and reverent approach to the world, who lead from a profound and serene place of alignment with All.

Tounché AFRICA 2018

Cradle of Humankind, South Africa

theme: UNITING IN A POLARIZED WORLD

Heal the divide & craft a vision of a depolarized world

There is an angst in the air that permeates our daily lives. All these things that divide us, politics, religious war, xenophobia, racism, and gender divide, are causing us to move with an unease. We already carry the weight of a traumatic past and for many of us, the day-to-day microaggressions often build, reopening old wounds. What can we do to help? Are there different solutions we haven’t tried? How can we be changemakers in our businesses, communities and our daily lives? Where do we find solace, love, and understanding? Where do we go to commune, to breathe?

AUTHENTIC

Tounché is intentionally designed to create a fundamental shift in all who participate to unite in an increasingly polarized world. It is intended to serve as a safe space to engage in polarizing topics from diverse perspectives, to encourage healing and renewal and to empower ourselves through wisdom sharing & preservation.
