What a gift it is to be exposed to the traditional spiritual teachings of ancient Africa.

This week’s guests are Nehez Meniooh and Men Zebah Hasati, American initiates into the secret teachings of the late Master Naba Lamoussa Morodenibig, a Dogon High Priest whose lineage comes from Burkina Faso, West Africa. Master Naba founded and taught at The Earth Center in Chicago from the late 1990s until his death in 2008.

Burkina Faso, we learn, along with Mali, comprise the area considered the traditional capital of Africa, home to the secret teachings of ancient Merita, (Africa).

"These countries are some of the poorest by Western standards. But they are the richest in traditional knowledge." The teachings had to be kept secret during generation after generation of invasion "just to stay alive and get the knowledge to the next generation."

Earth Center students take annual missions into the heart of these ancient wisdom locales where they live among the spiritual leaders and visit sites significant to the teachings. True learning must be experienced. "Education is your right to understand for yourself, without the filter of someone else’s agenda."

The term "colonialism" takes on broad meaning in this discussion. Colonialism, a "momentum of evil," is a force separating the individual from knowledge of self and harmony with all things. This force has many faces: academia, government, even a family member. Colonialism takes you from yourself. It divides and redefines for purposes of power. Immunity starts by understanding that construct. "We protect ourselves by being good people, good in the tradition that our ancestors defined it."

We learn that the Dogon is a culture made up of many different bloodlines, of which Master Naba’s line is one, the Gormanche. The Gormanche specialized in spiritual and astronomical knowledge. They were the keepers of the knowledge for the pharaohs.

"Every culture has all the answers we seek; that’s what a culture is." But modern life has no culture, per se, they explain. We’ve been tricked into living to serve our own ambitions; thinking we can cherry pick what suits us from a smorgasbord of cultures. That’s why we find ourselves confused, philosophically at sea.

Master Naba taught a code of human behavior that has 77 commandments. It was the dismantling of this code of behavior that disenfranchised humanity. "We say that what you can do does not define you. What defines you is what you will not do under any circumstance. Nowadays we put our ambitions ahead of what we will not do."

We learn the story of The Garlic Effect - a story that elucidates that humans are vulnerable to manipulations that affect perception, and perception is everything.

"Those of us on the path to enlightenment, on the path of honesty, integrity, intelligence, we must defend ourselves against these influences [that alter perception] every day.

"The modern world tells us we can only investigate our world through science." But all life is "a dialog of energies on a universal scale. Everything that exists (yes, non-Earth beings as well) has an influence on us. We are all connected so much more than we know."

"The Earth Center teachings are a return to what works. "We must preserve all that has been passed down to us. We have to return to the processes aligned with life preservation."

Nehez Meniooh was born in Seattle, Washington in the United States of America. He entered the Earth Center's M'TAM initiation in 2004. Previous to his entry into the M'TAM school, he studied what he could of Traditional African Medicine, attempting to navigate through the new age superstitions and unfounded African Health teachers. Nehez was a part of the last generation who studied exclusively under Master Naba in the U.S.. He was one of only two initiates of an initial eleven in his generation who made it through the rigorous training. Nehez understands the importance of traditions and traditional apprenticeship. He would often times be at the center from the time Master Naba awoke in the morning until the time the lights went out. He studied very closely with Master Naba, and under the guidance of his elder generation the Herpws (Inejnemas). He apprenticed with Master Naba in the healing more than any other initiate in the school, sitting in on countless health consultations, listening to the wisdom of Master Naba and gaining valuable experiential knowledge. When Master Naba left the US in 2007 he asked Nehez to move into the Chicago branch of The Earth Center center (US headquarters) and oversee the medicines and the center. Nehez continues his study with Master Naba and other elder Ankhkasta healers on the annual pilgrimages. Nehez is now the head acting healer at the Chicago headquarters as well as the Brooklyn, NY center where he travels once a month to do healing consultations and provide older students a chance for apprenticeship.

Men Zebah Hasati is a graduated initiate of the Hasati generation.  She fulfilled her first level of initiation as a second generation student (with Nehez).  As the eldest woman initiate, she has attended 5 pilgrimages to Meritah (Africa) including Makheru's last pilgrimage in 2007.  She is an apprenticing healer, although originally from the Chicago location, she is currently overseeing the NY location until this year's pilgrimage is over.
