Some ten years ago in 2004 we convened an international conference, at the Source of the Nile, under the theme We Are One People: Multiple Dreams of “Another World”. The prime target for the 2004 conference was people engaged in the search for and dreams of “Another World”; each “their world”, convinced that Another World is possible. A decade later we are convening the International Transformative Confluence at the Source of the Nile at a time when millions upon millions of transformative praxists around the world are no longer in search of “Another World”. “Another World” is not a mere possibility, any more! Objectively and subjectively, a new world unveiled itself to them, a world in which they already live and work.

Against that background and context the prime target for the International Transformative Confluence 2017 are people, their organizations and community who are actively engaged in the building of the New Epoch, consistent with their place, space and base; people, history and aspirations. It is particularly auspicious for an adequately diverse critical mass of masters and mastresses of transformative praxis and exemplary practitioners, to Gather-in-Confluence at the Source, such that in concert they may achieve strategic goals which add value to their work, severally and together. Masters and mastresses of social transformation praxis are encouraged to come along with their students and mentees, in the general framework of embedded inter-generation engagement and succession.

The Confluence prime target of participants, in the sense of persons, organizations and institutions most likely to maximumly benefit from, as well as add value to, the gathering at the Source of the Nile, are persons who, with reason and passion, believe, or, in the alternative know, that “Another World” is not only possible, but long over-due. Secondly, they are as well people who believe or know that “Another World” does not happen as an event, but unfolds as a process which calls for multitudes and multitudes of midwives across the world (of which they are part) to assist with the birthing of the New Epoch.

More particularly, Confluence 2017 at the Source of the Nile is recommended to the following categories of people:
Transformational praxists who are the conscious members of countries, nations, nationalities and peoples who maintain and espouse a spiritual relationship with the land; for example, the First Nations of North America, the indigenous people of South America, the Maori and the Aboriginals of Australia and New Zealand, the Afrikans.
Persons who are the conscious and active members of nations, nationalities and peoples who are the survivors of the holocaust of the Ameripean empire, in its rise, cruise, decline and fall; as well as survivors of empires which pre-date the Ameripean one; for example, the Afrikans who, in a massive brutal operation involving dozens of millions, were kidnapped and driven into slavery in the Arab world and the so-called New World; the First Nations of the Americas, Australia and New Zealand, the Banyoro of Uganda, the Herero of Namibia, the communities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Viet Nam, Grenada, Panama, Suez, etc.
The category of nations and peoples in the belly of the beast, who have been digested hard, but to no avail; for example: the Scots, the Irish, the Welsh, Catalonia, the Aino of Japan, the Batwa and Bairu of the Great Lakes Region; etc.
Members of academia; particularly the ones whose areas of specialization and interest include colonialism, imperialism, revolution and de-colonization, language and culture.
Persons active in NGOs, CSOs, philanthropy, the private sector; with a transformation bend of mind.
Persons who are members of social movements, and movements of the oppressed; workers, peasants, women, immigrants, etc.
Persons who are dissatisfied with status quo, but are not clear on the nature of the problem, and what is to be done – and possibly stand on the brink of having their inner and outer eyes opened.


Participants with children who they want to have some lifetime experience of Afrika need not worry. Arrangements are in place for a special programme for the youngsters under 16. If you intend to come along with a youngster, please get in touch for more information.
