Kiva 22 – Elders & Wisdom keepers

To be chosen from among us the human race, in all our different languages and sounds with different colored robes, to go – as Tigre saw it in his vision – into the Kiva, to act there in their own tradition in their prayer and their wisdom; this is a commitment to be honored and respected.

With love, honor and respect we look forward to all those who will stand with us at the Kiva this year and let their strength work in prayer.

An obligation, a commitment is for a Kiva cycle, for four years and – if possible – we will welcome everyone back into the circle.

Indigenous activist, indigenous activist. Perhaps this pair of words arranged in this pun is the best way to start introducing Shirley Djukurnã Krenak, a native woman from the Brazilian land.

Since she was 13 years old, she has responded to Mother Earth’s call to be a representative of indigenous rights and, above all, to fight for the preservation of the environment and ancestral spirituality.

Today, at the age of 40, she dedicated herself in body and soul to the struggle of indigenous women, something inherited from her traditional name, Djukurnã: a woman always willing, because she is the bearer of the spirit that never grows old.

Always in search of a deeper way of understanding, a deeper way of prayer, healing and ceremony.

Through stories and songs, through sacred symbols and healing energies, dreams and visions … always moving forward … going deeper …

Forgiveness and thankfulness as part of a rich spiritual life … so many blessings.

The ancestors walk with us. They bless us. We are their living prayer.

Since childhood Theresia ( Whisper ) travels through the worlds of her star ancestors and Elven families.
She was bit of a strange and dreamy girl…not of this world some said .
She didn’t speak a lot and stayed somewhat hidden away from groups of people.

That sometimes felt a bit lonely, until she met an Irish old Bard who told her she is” one of the Fae people”. And that she should not forget to share the knowledge and energy of the Fae with people nowadays .
It’s time to connect …..

And so she did … Theresia found a way to integrate and share her worlds as a dance teacher … later traveling with puppet theater … storytelling and harp and drum and songs inspired by her star family and Elvenways.

Born in the year of the wall.
Raised in West-Berlin at the edge of the city.
Accompanied by grandmothers, siblings, animals, gardens and ruins.

My Father, the medicine man, teached me healing, sympathy and adventurousness.
My Mother, the queen, gave me beauty and the courage in love.

About love, I know all and nothing, one thing for sure: “Love and Freedom are one.”
Adjure fortune: “What you call, comes!”
My magic is the magic of the body.
“.. the wisdom and experience of all beings is living inside us. We can use this wisdom to create a loving world.”

That’s it. That’s what I want.

Her mission is to support people to live from their heart with light and love. She works with respect for everyones original quality and finds her inspiration in how the bees work together. The way the bees cooperate is how they make the gold, the honey. Its about balance and harmony.

She is reconnected by ancestors with the knowledge of the Elder Futhark Runes. The origin of these Runes are from the ancestor tradition of the low countries/west Europe and it is time for her to go back to our own culture and traditions.

So it was channelled to her:
“Find the twelve sacred sounds on the Spinal Cord, if you find them and make these sounds with the people, they can be healed through their own DNA.”

Now the time has arrived to spread this gift from our European ancestors out into the world.

He plays the Ney (a flute – and the oldest known instrument) and singer.
Master student of the legendary Bansuri master Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia and the Ney master Kudsi Erguner.

In encounter with this mystical flute, the Ney, his playing style shows the reflection of different approaches, regional Anatolian folk music, and Ottoman and Indian classical music as well as fusion and experimental forms.

Music is an invisible bridge of a breath, where we all are linked and somehow creating a view of life and love in a genuine dimension. Its a bridge through a stone to human, through the hearth to cosmos, through silence to the big bang, through multitude to the oneness.
