WEFOUNDKogi's Mysterious Journey


Kogi longs to capture the spirit of nature in his art. He draws majestic mountains, trees, waterfalls, and Lake Biwa's glimmering fish, but his paintings are always lifeless and dull-until one supernatural morning when he wades into the cool, deep, shimmering water and becomes a golden fish. There he learns firsthand the freedom within the silence that pulsates in all of life. When hunger drives him to risk the fisherman's baited hook, another miraculous transformation forces Kogi back to his life as a painter, but a painter now forever changed. Elizabeth Partridge's elegant prose and Aki Sogabe's cut-paper illustrations bring clean lines and lush color to this mysterious tale of discovery.

You are invited to pioneer something that is truly amazing – to join John Perkins and his Ecuadorian partner Daniel Koupermann in a ground-breaking trip that builds a bridge between cultures in magical ways that have never happened before.

The Kogi of the Sierra Nevada mountains were so deeply impressed by the participants on the December 2015 and 2016 trips and their dedication to “changing the dream of the industrial world” that they have asked us to take this relationship to new heights. They’ve invited the 2017 group to spend more time in their communities and to delve deeply into sacred ceremonies that they say have been kept secret from outsiders – until now.

The Kogi refer to themselves as the “Elder Siblings.” They remained isolated after the Spanish Conquest until recently when they understood that life as we know it is being destroyed by us, the “Younger Siblings.“ In recent years, they came down from their mysterious mountain villages to teach humanity about how to protect the living being, the “Great Mother,” Earth. After the 2015 and 2016 trips they understood that some of the Younger Siblings are prepared to go much deeper; the 2017 group is a manifestation of their dream for a stronger partnership.
