The summit featured 40 international thought-leaders, wisdom keepers, global experts, spiritual visionaries, healers, storytellers and meditation teachers representing the diversity of the African diaspora and the world.
The 200+ attendees had the opportunity to interact with and learn from top experts who shared wisdom and real-world experiences, aimed at healing the divide and setting a new tone of engagement for dealing with our differences and pains. We explored topics such as: uniting through race relations, releasing fears, gender relations, and how to connect despite different belief systems.
CRADLE OF HUMANKIND, SOUTH AFRICA
The inaugural Tounché took place in the sacred place where all of humankind originated: the Cradle of Humankind UNESCO World Heritage site, located 1 hour outside of Johannesburg, South Africa. In this 47 000-hectare site of rolling hills and valleys researchers have discovered the most comprehensive evidence of the origins of humanity and its place within nature. The land is deeply etched with the passage of time, fostering a place of enquiry and discovery - contemplation and reflection - inviting universal pilgrimage to restore our connection to nature and nurture our innermost selves.
