In September 2017, Angaangaq was invited for the Worldwide Pilgrimage for Love, Compassion and Human Unity, organized by the UNIVERSAL SUFI COUNCIL. This Council has been established to spread the Sufi message of love, harmony, and beauty; of respect, tolerance and universal brotherhood and sisterhood
Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq was a speaker at the PEACE PLEDGE PROJECT, a Peace Symposium in The Netherlands, from September 12th to 14th, taking place in the international Peace Palace in The Hague and in the neighbouring Sufi Temple in Katwijk aan Zee.
More spiritual and political leaders were present, such as Sri M (India), 12th Tai Situ Rinpoche (Tibet), Swami Chidanand Saraswati (India), Shin Tao (Taiwan), Prof. Dr. H.J. Witteveen (former Managing Director of the IMF), Venu Rajamony (Ambassador from India), Bert Koenders (former Minister in the Netherlands). The main focus of the symposium were: water, education, and the importance of compassion and kindness in our work.
Uncle spoke about WATER and how we need to become aware about not spoiling so much precious fresh drinking water, by just brushing our teeth our by accepting leaking taps. “There’s still so much imbalance in the world”.
Greenland has more fresh water than any other place in the world. Water in Greenlandic language is called IMEQ, which means “the life giving source of all”. And it is so true: no one can live without water.
Water was present in the assambly that had been part of hundreds of ceremonies in the Netherlands and Belgium, with the intention to support Standing Rock and the Native People. They have to face the coming of an oil pipeline trough their native land wich will poison their drinking water and bring unimaginable damage. Also Angaangaq had done a water ceremony for Standing Rock at a previous visit to The Netherlands.

My name is Angaangaq and it means the Man who Looks like his Uncle.
As a runner for my Elders of Greenland, I would like to invite my friends and all my relations of the indigenous world to come and visit us in Greenland from July 5th to 11th, where we will be celebrating a Full Moon Ceremony during the Midnight Sun, where we will be at the Sacred Site where my Grandmother grew up since the 1890s.
The time for Unity has come and that need for unity has never been as great as it is now. And the last chance we have to be able to freely move in this world is now. Before it is too late, the Elders have asked that we get together and have a council and speak of what it is that we need to do to give hope for the world.
In the vastness of my land, realize your own immensity within. Come home to yourself, find yourself again and find peace while walking the oldest crust of Mother Earth – the only land on Earth where Man lives and there has never been war. Coming home to yourself, you will see your own beauty and you will walk tall and powerful, as you are meant to be, for times and times to come.
So I invite you: Come to the Elders Gathering in Kangerlussuaq in Greenland, The Land of the People (Kalaallit Nunaat). I look forward to hearing from you.

[The Wisdom of the Shaman: 21 Ceremonies for Living Consciously and with Inner Strength]
Ceremonies have always played a fundamental role for all indigenous peoples. They contain the ancient teachings and give significance and guidance in daily life; they are precious tools for a life in harmony with ourselves and nature. In our modern society we have lost this connection, our life is ruled by stress, feeling of isolation, of constant lack of time, of true relationships, of joy of life….
“A ceremony is something living which has a significance for you. It comes from your heart and gives you joy; in this way, it gives sense to your daily life, and becomes support, creativity and healing. You will start to see your own beauty and the beauty of others, you will find a new reality within yourself, and your life will become a living ceremony.”
In this book Angaangaq, the Greenlandic Shaman known worldwide, presents 21 simple ceremonies for your daily practice. Small ceremonies which will help you to be in contact with the knowledge and wisdom of our ancestors, and to take the challenges of daily life with more serenity and courage.
These ceremonies have been created for various moments during daily life, e.g. the ceremony of WAKING UP and GOING TO SLEEP, or to celebrate different aspects and emotions of existence, like THE BEAUTIFUL SIDES OF LIFE, THE SMILE OF THE HEART, HUGGING YOURSELF and BURNING TEARS.
Starting and ending the day in a loving way, feeling grateful for the gifts of life, or consciously letting go of heavy thoughts and moods – are small gestures with a great effect. The ceremonies help you to recognize and to celebrate moments of happiness, and to live your life with more fullness and awareness.
“Life is a ceremony, worthy to be celebrated with a ceremony.“

The glaciers are melting in Greenland. And Man is worried about the future of the world. In search of clues in a natural paradise.
Is the glacier laughing or crying? Nukartaa does not need to search for the answer. “She is crying,” he says. “The ice is crying and the river that you are looking at there, is carrying her tears to the sea.” Nukartaa says this with a look of concern. Even he, a Greenlandic Elder, is close to tears. I am reminded of what I saw yesterday: turquoise blue lakes far inland lying on top of the ice. They looked like eyes peering up from the depths at the sky. We were on approach, landing in Kangerlussuaq. Then, my heart jumped for joy. But now, I am uneasy: The glacier is crying. Read more
