Angaangaq was born in Greenland in 1947. He is an elder, traditional healer, spiritual teacher and shaman from Greenland. He grew up in a remote village in Greenland, where his grandmother recognized his gift to continue the healing tradition of the family and trained him for becoming a shaman. His spiritual task, given by his mother, is "to melt the ice in heart of man".
Already in 1975, as a young man, he received the task from the elders to be a "runner" for them and to bring the message about the melting of the Big Ice in Greenland to the world. His work took him to more than 70 countries around the world. He is a keynote speaker at international conferences on climate change, environmental issues and indigenous affairs and has represented the Arctic people at the UN General Assembly. He has met with personalities like Nelson Mandela, Michail Gorbatschow, Pope John Paul II., Pope Francis and the Dalai Lama and has participated in several documentary films. He has passed on his knowledge to universities, schools, companies, retirement homes and prisons.
His teachings come from the Eskimo Kalaallit - a peaceful culture that is thousands of years old and has not experienced war. These teachings have enabled people to survive in one of the harshest places on earth. They call us to bridge the distance between our minds and hearts through strength and gentleness, compassion and love, courage and determination, to make personal and global transformation and healing possible.
