Born in Greenland in 1947, Angaangaq is an elder, traditional healer, spiritual teacher, and Shaman-Angakkoq. 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 the heart of man. Only by melting the ice in the heart of man, will man have a chance to change and begin to use his knowledge wisely.” In 1975 he was called by 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 has taken him so far 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 Gorbachow, 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 thousands-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, and courage and determination — to allow for personal and global transformation and healing.
