"The teachings are for all, not just for Indians ... (or indigenous) ... The white people never wanted to learn before. They thought we were savages. Now they have a different understanding, and they do want to learn. We are all children of God. The tradition is open to anyone who wants to learn."
--Don Jose Matusuwa, HUICHOL
The traditional values and ceremonies of indigenous people throughout the world share many common denominators. Indigenous people understand that humanity is neither above nor below any of the rest of Creation. We happen to have a different form of intelligence ~ the ONLY form that allows us the ability to destroy Mother Earth, and the only form that gives us the arrogance to believe we can do so with impunity!
Today, modern people all over the world are waking up. We are seeing and experiencing the results of our delusional way of thinking. We are beginning to understand that if we defile the Sacred Waters, harm Mother Earth, pollute the Sacred Winds, and ignore the Sacred Fire, we will pay dire consequences. Without Earth, Air, Water and Fire we cannot live.
Instead of being part of the problem, indigenous Wisdom Keepers want to assist us all to become part of the solution. By building community, sharing wisdom, values, prayer and ceremony together at the Seven Generations World Wisdom Gatherings, we are planting seeds that can grow and blossom in countries across our lovely planet. Together we return to the Sacred.
In many indigenous languages, there are no words for 'spiritual' and 'art', because everything is spiritual and artistic. We've forgotten this in the modern world. Its time to REMEMBER. Together we breathe the breath of the Great Mystery. Together we take each step in prayer for harmony and balance.
Please join us at one of our Seven Generations World Wisdom Gatherings! It will change your life!!
World Wisdom Gatherings are a way that the Seven Generations World Wisdom Council can impart indigenous wisdom in many countries, and guide communities through ceremony and community-building by local and international Elders/Wisdom keepers. With communication, integrity, group building and sharing from heart to heart, much can be accomplished. World Wisdom Gatherings are Hosted by associations, foundations or not for profit organizations. World Council members of the Seven Generations World Wisdom Council travel intensively and are dedicated to offering their essence by sharing teachings, ceremonies, customs and traditions with students, apprentices, Grandmother Circles, Grandfather circles, Foundations, and Co-operations. In this time of great change, the Wisdom Keepers/Elders can offer traditional wisdom as a foundation for co-creating a new, more sustainable, balanced, harmonious and effective perspective on world and community issues.
