Making Peace: Meeting with the Kogi Indians (indigenous people) from Colombia
The basis for worldwide peace is forgiveness and healing on the deepest soul and heart level. The meeting of peoples and religions, especially between Europeans and peoples in North and South America, was not always marked by peace. Past disregard and wounds must be forgiven and healed so that union and unity can be restored in peace. This work of consciousness and healing is essential and the basis for a worldwide international community of hearts, which is then revealed and realized in every variety. This is the basis for a profound and lasting peace that includes all living beings, such as animals, plants and Mother Earth.
With this in mind and with this longing in our hearts, as part of the European people, we have travelled to the Kogis, honoring them with all our hearts, appreciating them, giving them gifts, feeling and recognizing our common roots together with them. We have given them back their place in our hearts, thus overcoming the separation that we once caused. The Kogis, on the other hand, have opened their hearts to us because of their greatness and mission, and together we could feel that we belong to the family of the world. Out of their peace, greatness and mission, they are now coming to Europe to reach us with their message. The space for forgiveness and healing between Europe and Colombia (South America) is opened up for all by the visit of the Kogis. Peace at heart level can now become a reality.
We are therefore very pleased that the Kogi Indians from Colombia have accepted our invitation to welcome them here at our Light Consciousness Congress. As Keepers of the Earth, the Kogi Indians have a message for the world. They want to call for the protection of Mother Earth and point out to us humans that our current behavior weakens and sustainably destroys our home planet.
The philosophy of light consciousness also carries the healing message and protective action for Mother Earth and longs for a peaceful coexistence with our planet in the sense of extended humanity. Together we open the space for meeting, expansion, knowledge, forgiveness and peace at our congress and cordially invite everyone to join us!

Meeting of the Kogi Indians in Colombia
From 16 to 29 April 2018 we will travel to Colombia in the Sierra Nevada Santa Marta with our teacher, the healing philosopher David Wared. We visit several Kogi communities there.
The Kogi are a primitive people in Colombia and they call themselves "the guardians of the earth". Our intention and our goal is to meet and exchange with them.
We are in three different communities and we are invited to spend one night with them. The first visit is very exciting for all of us, we are curious what to expect.
Over a bumpy road we are brought with motorcycles to a meeting place and a Kogi named Manuel is waiting for us. He's a Máma, a leader of the community. I have the impression that he watched us very skeptically and received us rather reservedly. He then leads us to the village, in his quiet and deliberate way. David surprises Manuel by naming the different signs of the path and Manuel is more and more fascinated and he smiles and opens very carefully.
Arrived in the village, we are very curious. There are hardly any inhabitants to see and we come to a place and meet four more Kogi. We sit on stones. In the run-up to the trip we had prepared questions and so a dialogue with the five Kogi developed. We talk about Mother Earth, that we want to protect her, we talk about peace and our visions and we realize that we have a lot in common. I'm fascinated by this conversation and it touches me so much. In this round David sends an invitation to Hamburg and after a period of reflection they accept it. It's so very consistent.
We spend the day in the village, go to a holy place by the river and we participate in ceremonies and meditate with them. Finally, David invites the group to a peace meal in our hotel.
We visit two more communities. There are many children in a village and we give them presents and meditate with them. We sit in a circle and we consciously stand behind the Kogi.
In the next village we stay overnight and spend two days with a Máma's family. This is a particularly deep experience and here too we meditate and experience ceremonies together with the Kogi. In every village there are holy places and a holy river and we bathe in this wonderful water and it sanctifies us.
Each visit and all encounters are intense in their own way and we experience a lot. It is always an exchange, it is always intensive encounters and experiences. Some things irritate and are incomprehensible to us, but our common ground can always be felt on a very special level. At the end of the trip there will be a meal of peace in our hotel and representatives of the Kogi from the individual communities will visit us.
We experience a wonderful day and evening, with meditations, with conversations, with a fire ritual and with a peace meal at a wonderful white table with a hundred white roses.

MEDITATION for PEACE & LOVE
All people are longing deep in their hearts for a peaceful world and a loving togetherness. This desire unites us worldwide, because our souls and hearts speak the same language. Often we try to find peace and love outside, but these are anchored in ourselves. Meditation is a simple and direct way to get in contact with our inner being and thus to peace and love in us.
Our association LICHTBEWUSSTLEBEN e.V. usually organizes four times a year the Meditation for Peace and Love in different cities of Germany, in order to manifest from our inner center a power without words, which strengthens the realization of peace and love in everyday life.
We would like to invite you together with the founder of the philosophy of light awareness, David Wared.
Event: MEDITATION for PEACE & LOVE
Place: Mozart Halls, Moorweidenstr. 36, 20146 Hamburg

Earth Healing on the Elbstrand – Payback to Mother Earth
The earth gives us the basis of all life – we want to give something back to it.
The Earth Healing of the Light Awareness Academy invites you to a common meditation with active healing action for our planet.
It is always the goal of our work to support the earth in its balance and harmony with all living beings.
In Hamburg we would like to give the 11 basic values (light, love, life, love, peace, freedom, truth and unity as well as order, harmony and rhythm) over the beach and the water of the Elbe into the world.
We look forward to a varied experience, touching experiences and new insights.
Are you ready when the earth calls you? Be there!

Walk of Peace – Walk for Peace
Steps in peace and for peace.
As part of the 1st Light Awareness Congress in Hamburg on 21-23.09.2018 the first Walk of Peace will take place in Hamburg. Certainly not the first peace march to take place in Hamburg, but the first Walk of Peace according to David Wared's philosophy of light awareness.
These steps for peace are not a demonstration against war or strife in the world. These steps for peace are taken by the participants out of their own inner peace for peace. The organizers are on the way from the inner mindset that peace is something that is originally created in every human being. We just need to remember that that is the case. Every person is able to feel and perceive peace through his innermost being. The Walk of Peace is about bringing this peace to life and expressing and expanding it in silence in every step. This is the difference to a demonstration against discord in the world. Every statement against something already contains one's own discord and, strictly speaking, is in turn already an attack. The participants and organizers of the Walk of Peace want to transform exactly this attitude into an act of peace.
When we end the war within us, stop the inner strife, we are able to live authentic peace and touch others through our own peace. Then no more words of conviction are needed. The peace man speaks to the peaceful part in every other person and touches him on the level of the heart. Peace can only be felt to its full extent. Any description by words cannot fully grasp this deep feeling.
That is why the graduates of David Wared's Light Awareness Academy invite everyone who feels addressed to take these steps for peace. To meet like-minded people in silence and to consciously send every step of peace into the world in meditative form is the deeper meaning of this Walk of Peace.
Event: Walk of Peace
Time: 15:00 – 16:00
Starting point: At the lightship at the Landungsbrücken
Endpoint: Platz der Deutschen Einheit, in front of the Elbphilharmonie

Light Dance around the World – Light Dance for Peace
In every country we travel, we meet with people and their cultures and share our peace with them. This happens, among other things, with a common Energy Dance, for which no words are needed. Dance is a wonderful way to connect people, as the language of movement is the immediate and intuitive expression of feelings and sensations.
Beyond the healing dance for our own path of consciousness, this afternoon we also dance for the pacification and unification of all peoples, nations, cultures and races and for the equal rights of all beings on earth. In our Energy Dancing we value humans, animals, nature and Mother Earth itself and thus we heal and sanctify her. Thus, we ourselves become a dancing pillar of light, which expands its light through movement, which expresses its love through movement and which is living life.
With this Light Dance at the “Platz der Deutschen Einheit“ (which we selected for the ending of the Walk of Peace) we give ourselves to the Hanseatic city of Hamburg and to entire Germany. We connect our dancing souls and thus unite our energies as an expression of our unity.
You are heartily invited to engage in the energy dance and to express your feelings intuitively, and thus expand peace – within yourself and to the outside world.
Event: Light Dance around the World as part of the Walk of Peace
Where: Platz der Deutschen Einheit
Time: approx. 15:45, immediately after the Walk of Peace
The Light Dance around the World is one dance of Energy Dancing, that has its origins from the Philosophy of Light Awareness.
