After witnessing cycles of brutality, violence and trauma, both local and global -- from gang-ridden, poverty stricken communities in our backyards to the brutal, horrifying violence in Sudan, Congo and countless other regions, Living Ubuntu came into being in 2005 because we began asking ourselves simple, yet urgent, questions.
Our name is representative of the philosophy eloquently described by Desmond Tutu in recognition that “a person is a person through other persons,” “my humanity is… inextricably bound up in what is yours,” and “what dehumanizes you inexorably dehumanizes me.” Just as “Ubuntu” describes our inter-connectedness, Living Ubuntu seeks to support the common good while also addressing factors that detract from that.
We want a world where
Living Ubuntu is a non-profit organization with a focus on mind-body issues, specifically health and well-being, and the effects of stress, trauma and compassion fatigue. We seek to increase awareness of the global and local impact of these issues, build a sense of community, and encourage living a more fully embodied life.
We are passionate, effective, efficient and very grassroots. Most of our programs would not be possible without our volunteers. Join our team.
