‘Voices4MotherEarth’ – World Wisdom Gathering will run parallel to the COP21 gathering in Paris
Thirty outstanding Wisdom Keepers from around the world – elders and grandmothers of Indigenous Peoples, spiritual leaders, scientists, economists, artists, youth and more – will gather just outside Paris, from November 30th until December 6th, with the aim to raise the global consciousness, enhance and envision the transformation towards a healthy, sustainable and harmonious Mother Earth.
A new paradigm
This unique gathering will be a process of deep listening and sharing of ancient wisdom and natural laws to unfold a clear, unified and unprecedented new paradigm for humankind, living well in balance with Mother Earth. The Wisdom Keepers gather with the vision to bring their gifts, knowledge and experience down to earth, co-creating new initiatives, available, understandable and useful to all. Like spirit in action!
All over the World!
The World Wisdom Gathering will simultaneously be supported by ceremonies of Indigenous Peoples all over the world. These ceremonies are their key dynamic processes to maintain, restore and initiate relations to all that is living and this is how they have protected most of the biodiversity-rich places left on Mother Earth.
Filling the Blind Spot
The ceremonial gathering is seen by other Indigenous leaders – of whom many are active in the discussions at the COP21 – as the filling in of the ‘Blind Spot of our Time’, providing the missing link, the reconnection to what Einstein called ‘the origin of Life’.
The Wisdom Keepers want to bring their vision and messages in a ceremonial way to the world, from the heart of Paris. A place surrounded by the water of the Seine on Île de la Cité in front of the Notre Dame (Our Lady, Mother Earth).
Drumming her heartbeat
A special Sacred Drum is being made by the Ojibway people to drum the heartbeat of Mother Earth, resonating from this place in the heart of Paris during the entire Climate Summit. On Sunday the 6th of December the World’s Wisdom Keepers will come to Île de la Cité in front of the Notre Dame with their vision and messages to the world.
Via the river Seine with Indigenous canoes, they will bring a Sacred Peace Fire and will be surrounded by a large group of people drumming the heartbeat of Mother Earth.
A gift to the world
This is a Ceremony for all, the gift to the world.
You are most welcome to be part of this!
My Earth is your Earth
My Heart is your Heart
My Spirit is your Spirit
Let’s work together
