ELDERS GATHERING ~ UTOQQARNUT AASIVIK | Kangerlussuaq, Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland)

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.

Come and walk with me in silence, only with what you think and what you feel. Celebrate with me and have fun – as Life is a Ceremony in itself, worthy of celebrating with a Ceremony.  Witness the full moon and the midnight sun facing each other above the Big Ice in the bright night. At the Big Ice, hear the silence, the incredible silence.
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.

In Unity,

Angaangaq

Angaangaq´s book in German has just been published in Italian language by ‘Terra Nuova Edizioni:

La Saggezza dello Sciamano. 21 cerimonie per vivere con consapevolezza e forza interiore Link here

[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.

IMEQ ~ WATER ~ SUPPORT FOR STANDING ROCK

DEAR FAMILY OF LAKOTAS,

THIS IS YOUR UNCLE FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD IN GREENLAND – SENDING LOVE AND GREETINGS FROM THE ELDERS – WE WANT TO EXPRESS OUR LOVE FOR YOU AS OUR FAMILY AS WELL AS EXPRESS TO EVERYONE OF YOU OUR GRATITUDE FOR STANDING UP TO PROTECT ‘THE MOST SACRED MEDICINE ON THIS MOTHER EARTH – WATER’.

IN OUR TRADITION WE CALL WATER ‘IMEQ’ – WHICH LITERALLY MEANS ‘LIFE GIVING SOURCE OF ALL’ – THE OLD ONES TELL THAT ‘NO ONE ON THIS MOTHER EARTH CAN EVER LIVE WITHOUT WATER’.

THUS FOR US IT IS EXTREMELY DISTURBING TO REALIZE WHAT YOU ARE BEING FORCED TO FACE BY THOSE ‘WHO KNOW LITTLE’. THE OLD ONES SAY – ‘IF THEY KNEW THAT NO ONE CAN LIVE WITHOUT WATER – THEY WOULD NOT BUILD THE PULATERIAARSUK QERNERTAQ – THE BLACK SNAKE’.

ME PERSONALLY I WILL  ARRIVE HOME TO YOUR LAND IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS ONCE A FORMAL COMMUNICATION HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED – BRINGING WITH ME OUR NATIONAL FLAG – DONATED BY A DISTINGUISHED MAN WHO CREATED OUR FLAG.

LOVE AND GREETINGS FROM MY ESTEEMED ELDERS,

The Big Ice – Greenland 2015: The Spiritual Significance of Climate Change

Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, June 29th to July 4th, 2015

We had an amazing time at the Big Ice in Greenland – in Kalaallit Nunaat as we say in our own language. We experienced a shamanic spiritual walk in silence, and a bright night, watching the full moon and the midnight sun facing each other above us. And yes, we had so much fun.

Alas, when the Ice is Crying

The glaciers are melting in Greenland. And Man is worried about the future of the world. In search of clues in a natural paradise.

By: Christoph Quarch | Photos: Sven Nieder | Translation: Donna Weidner

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

The Ice Is Melting

Science and Prophecy

The Ancient One’s say that One Day, when the World needs it most, the Sacred Fire will come Home to the People on the Top of the World.
For thousands of years the people in the north fuelled their fires with oil from animals such as the seal and the arctic dolphin. Animals gave their lives so the people would have light and warmth. Now the climate is changing and the trees are standing again. The time has come for the Sacred Fires to be kindled with wood from Mother Earth. Read more

Return of the Sacred Fire

A Prophecy from the Top of the World is Fulfilled

For a very long time, Greenland was white. Only few strips of land along the coasts were green. Until one winter’s day in 1963 when two young hunters discovered something very disturbing: The huge ice walls were melting. They thought this was impossible since the temperature was well below minus 30 degrees. It was much too cold. And yet, drops of water fell upon them from up above. They ran back to the village to tell the Elders what they had experienced. “The ice is melting!” they reported. “Impossible!” The Elders also thought. “The ice cannot melt when it is so cold!” Yet, as the years passed, the drops became trickles, and later streams. Today, water shoots from the ice; ice that is only half as thick as it was forty years ago. Greenland is becoming green. Read more
