“It doesn’t matter what country you are from; in the end we find each other as one people, one family.” —Indigenous Grandmothers
For centuries, the medicine carriers, wisdom bearers, and spiritual elders from indigenous tribes—including the Maori, Ojibwe, Hopi, Mayan, and Sufi traditions—have all expressed the same sacred truth: We are one world family and we serve as the caretakers of the planet, along with its multitude of living creatures, all of whom are our kin.
As we hope to transition from a society of fragmentation and separation to become a more peaceful global family, we each must heed the call to open our hearts and stand together for the good of all.
In this sacred gathering with traditional and indigenous grandmothers, we come together to experience timeless wisdom, solidarity, inspiration, and hope for the future, as we offer transformative prayers for the world during this critical time in our planet’s history.
Led by indigenous women of prayer and action who regularly travel the globe to bear witness to the wounds of people and the Earth, this special weeklong event offers traditional wisdom and healing practices that are needed now more than ever—to ease environmental degradation, war, and other social ills.
All women and men of goodwill are invited to this week of traditional prayer, meditation, silence, ceremony, and council. We return home with new hope, wisdom, and a deeper sense of connection to each other and the world.
