The Kogi and the Mamos- The Lost City – La Cuidad Perdido

This film is an imperative to watch and to share! The last Eden ( the Sierra Nevada- the heart of the world) in the care of the Kogi, beautiful beautiful people with a message for ‘Younger Brother’ -Us! Difficult even begin to deal with the admiration or the terror of its implications. Here is active mysticism integrated with a highly sensitive society of extraordinary beauty. Perhaps others have already encountered them. I never had, until today.

  1. A friend of mine was enthusiastic about the Kogi, and I read a book conveying their message. I lent it out and never got it back, so I enjoyed the film, which shows their beautiful traditions and their Impressive sincerity.
    I understand they don’t now keep children destined to be priests in a semi-dark dream state for years. For these children to be told about the world, having to imagine its wonders in their mind’s eye and then one day being presented with its full glory must have been be truly magical.

    In my sequel to CoM there is a theme of lore induction during sleep which somewhat resonates.

    1. I thought that very interesting-the training of their priesthood- by keeping them for nine years in the dark, and then (can you imagine it?) presenting them with the beauty of the created world? To ensure that that experience ( recapitulating creation) was never forgotten. In other words only experience conveys truth?
