What is Ubuntu?

Ubuntu pronounced [ùbúntú], is a traditional African concept from the Zulu and Xhola languages, and can be roughly translated as "humanity towards others".

"Until he extends the circle of compassion to all living creatures, man himself will not find peace." - Albert Schweitzer



"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world." - John Muir


Trauma Recovery

"A gift of trauma recovery is the rediscovery of the living, sensing, knowing body." – Peter Levine

“Ubuntu is very difficult to render into a Western language.
It speaks of the very essence of being human. When we want to give high praise to someone we say, ‘Yu, u nobunto’; ‘Hey so-and-so has
 ubuntu.’ Then you are generous, you are hospitable, you are friendly and caring and compassionate. You share what you have. It is to say, ‘My humanity is inextricably bound up in yours.’ We belong in a bundle of life.”
– Desmond Tutu, No Future Without Forgiveness.
