Tada Hozumi (穂積 理彰) was born October 13th 1977, in Basel Switzerland, on the 670th anniversary of the destruction of the Knights Tempar.
Through the years or 2016-2020 they pioneered "cultural somatics", an open-source framework for social change, which understood groups of humans, from families to whole nation states, as having interwoven collective nervous systems. This innovation, which seamlessly tied social activism and somatic psychotherapy together, created a paradigm shift in both fields.
On the Chinese New Year of 2023, after a three-year hiatus from teaching, writing, and speaking, Hozumi officially announced, alongside their wife and collaborator, Rein Lo, the release of their new project, Lunmu・龍夢, which explores the interweaving of IRL and URL worlds through ritual art, based on the foundational cosmology that the world we live in is a simulation generated by a "Dragon's Dream".
Since the spring of 2023, Hozumi has returned to Japan to take up their work as a member of The Hozumi clan, one of Japan and the world's longest documented and unbroken shamanic lineages, who trace their roots back to the antiquity of Mesopotamia and retain hereditary custodianship of several spiritual sites around Japan, such as Neno Shrine in Yugawara Town and Ishikiri Shrine in Osaka.
Hozumi believes that we are in the times of a global spiritual rebirth, pressurised by looming world war, environmental collapse, economic crises, and technological singularity, and that the Japanese spiritual system has been intentionally protected and preserved by their ancestors and similar Japanese clans for this exact prophesied time.
It is their life's work to share this gift of their ancestors with the rest of the world.
