Listening to the stories of an elder to find your own hidden story within
Description: 

The wisdom and teachings of the Eskimo-Kalaallit culture have been passed down through thousands of years and from generation to generation, through the art of storytelling.

The lively, authentic narrative style has preserved the cultural heritage in this way until today.

In this pre-recorded lecture + subsequent live Q&A, Angaangaq will give you an insight into the powerfully clear and living teachings of the Eskimo-Kalaallit and Angaangaq’s shamanic storytelling. 

About the speaker, Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq

Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq is a shaman, healer, and storyteller, an Eskimo-Kalaallit Elder whose family belongs to the traditional healers of the Far North from Kalaallit Nunaat, Greenland. His name means ‘The Man Who Looks Like His Uncle’. Uncle, as he is frequently called, bridges the boundaries of cultures and faiths in people young and old. His work has taken him to five continents and over 70 countries around the world including South Africa, North America, South America, Asia, Arctic Europe, Russia, and Siberia. Angaangaq conducts healing circles, intensives, and Aalaartiviit – traditional sweat lodges. His teachings are deeply rooted in the wisdom of the oral healing traditions of his people. In 2004 his family summoned him to the sacred mountain for his initiation as their shaman.

 

Angaangaq was called by his people to bring home the Sacred Fire to Greenland. In July 2009 Elders from Siberia to Amazonia, from Nepal to Zimbabwe made their way to an ancient sacred site on the Top of the World, fulfilling a prophecy so old – no one knows the time. During the three day ceremony Akkaaraq called on Angaangaq to be known as the 'Great Shaman'.

Angaangaq is a keynote speaker at international conferences on climate change, environmental and indigenous issues. His work is acclaimed in promoting interracial and intercultural harmony.
