– Lecture – Gabriel Toso
Rites of passage in the wilderness are common in different cultures throughout the human history. One such is the Vision Quest, specifically linked with the Native American tradition which has managed to survive the ‘American Genocide’ and is still much alive in our times. A vision quest, in whatever form, is a spiritual undertaking to find oneself and one’s direction, as well as to assist in connecting with Mother Earth and the divine. Based on his research and personal experience, Gabriel will try to explain what makes one decide to spend four days and four nights fasting alone in nature seeking for a vision. A social drinks soiree follows the lecture, and all are welcome.
Gabriel Toso is a French/Italian art historian born in Venice and living in London. He has over 12 years experience of working in the art market while also collaborating with the British Museum’s Learning, Volunteers and Audiences Department. Moved by a profound interest in the spiritual path, Gabriel has visited and participated in ceremonies in Haiti and Brazil working with shamans from different traditions. He has previously lectured on Haitian vodou, both its art and religious elements.
