With an ancient ritual of the Kogi Mamo, the energy of a charter boat is cleansed and renewed, paving the way for a vibrant future. With wisdom passed down through generations, the Mamo invokes the spirits of nature to purify the vessel. Sacred herbs are burned, their fragrant smoke enveloping every nook and cranny, dispelling stagnant energies. Chants and prayers resonate through the air, infusing the boat with positive vibrations. The Mamo's hands move gracefully, sweeping away any residual negativity, creating a space primed for new beginnings. As the ritual concludes, a revitalized aura lingers, promising a voyage filled with harmony and prosperity.
