2021 Shamanic Wisdom Summit
Program & Replays
Melting the Ice in the Heart of Man
Angaangaq, also known as Uncle, has spent his life teaching people how to melt the ice around their hearts and the heart of humanity. In this session, he shares how this task has been handed down to him by his ancestors. Through the shamanic culture of the Kalaallit Inuit, he describes how he became a "runner," a message carrier for his elders and now the last of the shamanic elders of his Greenland tribe. These messages came from the ancient, 6000 years old traditions of his ancestors. Their teachings show how mutuality can bring about the kind of change that is needed today to meet the challenges of climate change, inequality and reconnection with all of nature.
In This Session:
- Angaangaq shows you ways to melt the ice around your own heart and thereby release the love of the collective heart
- You will get to know yourself better and learn how to dig for your roots in order to reconnect to your ancestors
- He shares the importance of creating circles, so that we can become more aware of racism, domination and how to belong to the whole of nature
Born in Greeland in 1947, Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq is an elder, traditional healer, spiritual teacher, and Shaman. 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 in shamanic practices. His spiritual task, given to him by his mother, is "to melt the ice in heart of man." As a young man in 1975, he received the task from the elders to be their "runner." His mission was to bring the world the message of the melting of the Big Ice in Greenland, and this work took him to more than 70 countries around the world.
Today Angaangaq 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's met with personalities including Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorbachev, Pope John Paul II, Pope Francis, and the Dalai Lama. He's participated in several documentary films and shares his knowledge with universities, schools, companies, retirement homes, and prisons.
His teachings come from the Eskimo-Kalaallit, a thousand-year-old, peaceful culture that has never 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 allow for personal and global transformation and healing.
