Shifting Consciousness: Pat McCabe & Colin Campbell
Steiner House, 35 Park Rd, Marylebone, London NW1 6XT
Monday 18th March, 18.30-21.00
The real revolution will be the evolution of consciousness.
Part of the Shifting Consciousness Series:
The climate crisis we are facing today is an ethical, political and human rights issue. It is a call to radical action: an opportunity to evolve, to come together and co-create. We need a shift in consciousness that reframes what’s important and empowers us to change our lives today.
The Shifting Consciousness Series invites spiritual teachers and wisdom keepers to explore how we can foster more nourishing and sustainable ways of being. These perspectives celebrate what it is to be alive, while empowering us to further the global movement in defense of our Earth and mental health. Central to the series is the balance between hope and celebration with action and authenticity.

Her primary work at the moment is:
The reconciliation between the masculine and feminine, Men's Nation and Women's Nation
Remembering, recreating or creating anew a narrative for the Sacred Masculine
Addressing the Archetypal Wounding that occurred in our misunderstanding and abuse of technology in prayer, ceremony and science
Colin Campbell grew up in rural southeastern Botswana, the son of a renowned anthropologist and a creative healing mother. His grandmother was a famous healer, whom people voyaged to see from far afield. On formative childhood travels with his father he slept under stars, learned from traditional San people and ways of the desert, awoke beside lion paw prints, and regularly fished cobras out of his bedroom draw. At the age of eleven he was diagnosed as having the illness of calling, which ultimately led to his being trained and initiated as a traditional doctor and sangoma. Through the time of his upbringing he acquired a deep knowledge of Tswana culture and its traditional medicinal and spiritual practices.
Colin is currently a practitioner of traditional African medicine, based in Cape Town, South Africa and the U.K. He receives clients from all over the world, and facilitates international group processes relating to natural law, transformation, healing & personal power, sacred sites, and cross-cultural cosmology. His work bridges major world cities with ancestral homelands and forgotten wilderness, taking him from the Amazon Basin to Los Angeles, the sacred sites of Venda to the urban grit of Johannesburg, and remote Ethiopia to the City of London. Colin co-founded and co-runs a training school in Botswana for traditional doctors and sangomas with his brother Niall Campbell. He is also a lifelong artist and musician, his style once again bridging the traditional with the contemporary, the timeless with the timely, and the sounds of the sacred with the lyricism of electric rocking funk.
