Call for worldwide ceremonies


December 6, 2015, Paris and around the world

From 1 to 5 December 2015 some thirty outstanding Wisdom Keepers from around the world – elders and grandmothers of Indigenous Peoples, spiritual leaders, scientists, economists, artists, youth and more – gather in the Voices4MotherEarth – World Wisdom Gathering just outside Paris. They have been in a process of deep listening and sharing of ancient wisdom and natural laws to unfold a clear, unified and unprecedented vision and new paradigmfor humanity in harmony and balance with Mother Earth.

On the 6th of December, the Wisdom Keepers will bring their vision and messages in a ceremonial way to the world, in a Ceremony4MotherEarth in a place west of Paris. Indigenous youth will perform songs. A Ceremonial Drum will be vibrating the gentle heartbeat of Mother Earth while a Peace Fire burns from the beginning until the end of COP 21.

All peoples around the world are invited to support the Indigenous Peoples and other Wisdom Keepers with prayers, meditation, sacred drumming, sacred fires, good thoughts.

This call for ceremonies follows a call for a Ceremonial Journey to Paris by elders of the Indigenous Alifuru people which was delivered earlier in 2015.

More than ever before human spirit needs unity

Brothers and sisters,

Our heart goes out to all those affected by this rude, inhuman act of violence. May their souls rest in peace. Many prayers for those who are wounded, and condolences and consolation for the families, friends and citizens of the city of Paris. This city is twice wounded in a year. And now this impact is disrupting Paris and everyone’s life for some time to come.  

Just as much as these bombs intend to fragment, scatter and destroy, the human spirit now, more than ever before, needs unity, our minds connection and our hearts love.

So in this very moment, we Call for Prayer, we Call for Ceremony.

What we all set out to do, World Wisdom Gathering, Voices for Mother Earth – Drumming for Mother Earth and the expression to the world on the 6th of December of the gift of Unity and Love, the inherent human values that are foundational to all of life, is now, even more of the utmost importance. Will we take our place in evolution or will it be the course of ultimate destruction?

So for your information, although we are realistic and understand the changing circumstances – are in direct contact with the City of Paris , we continue to prepare our Wisdom Gathering two weeks from now. Tomorrow we drive to our gathering place to organize the basics of our meeting. Monday morning we are ready to have our meeting in the City Hall to arrange the provisions for the sixth of December. Any adaptations due to security, or deviations we will report promptly with all of you.
