    Abstract:
    It is the return to the origin, in all its forms, that I propose to consider through what Heidegger calls a Grundstimmung, a ground-attunement, of mourning. This Mourning is a call to take on oneself the strife between sorrow and joy, which are within that very Grundstimmung. When one finds and stands on/in this locus, he/she is in a relation to place and time that precedes feelings and opens the possibilities of home in a post- civil war country. The strife will then be accompanied by one between heaven and earth, allowing the coming-to-being of a holy place that is the very meeting of the local and universal as one's ownmost. The final result of such attunement is the gathering of a people in reconciliation to enter an experience of and in their language as the ontological place for common thought, history, debate and a shared living/existence.
