Kiva Ceremony 2024 – Elders & Wisdom keepers

One fire, many hearts!
It is time to thanks.

The year for ourselves, now it is time to close the circle, receive the blessing and move forward.”
Helmut Kinzelmann (Director Roots-of-the-Earth Team Germany)

So now it is up to all of us to welcome the Elders & Wisdom keppers of the Kiva Ceremony in Germany for a fourth and – for this cycle in Germany – a last time and to be happy that they enter the Kiva in all their languages and songs, and finally again commit the connection to the fire with their prayer.
We complete the circle and move forward.

The journey of the Roots of the Earth family and the Kiva Ceremony continues, from country to country and continent to continent. We look forward to welcoming representatives of the next
Kiva Ceremonies on other continents.

He is a “wisdom keeper” and spiritual leader of the Xaxli’p First Nation of the St’at’imc People tribe.

In a vision he was charged with the task to preserve the knowledge of his people, and to share it with all those willing to learn. He should set up a place where people from all cultures of the world may gather to meet, learn, and together bring our disturbed relationship with nature and Mother Earth back into balance, thus contributing to healing.

The “Wheel of Life Society” and the “Healing House” are going to be built directly onto a place of power in the Fountain Valley, his home, located Below the mountain saddle where in the past the spiritual elders meditated and fasted to gain visions and information from the spirit world. Today young indigenous, and other Canadians too, are again going up the mountain alone for the four-day “Vision Quest”.

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.

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.

In a way his life is mysterious, but he is here and now.
One of the last Celtic priests in Europe who received his knowledge from an old uninterrupted family tradition, his grandparents and an uncle passed the family knowledge on to him.

He travelled and travelled more, worked with Native Americans, with Indian teachers, traveled to Ghana, to a rainmaker, and met Europe’s last druids and shamans of Baikal and Altai in Siberia.
It is the meaning and purpose of his work to cultivate the old eurasien rituals again, so that the people of EurAsia are beginning to work together in peace and freedom.
The healing of the missing love relations in our lives is his special concern.

This is how he says about love simply and clearly:
“Love is law that Goddess and God gave to this world when they created this world.
Love is free, it doesn’t expect, it doesn’t demand.
Love needs no reply.”

She is also known as Neterteri Meska, Feng Xian or Lapo’Mhlaba and she is a weaver, not only of tapestries.

A weaver between the stars, the environment, the society and all aspects of NaTuRe.
Out if all African Indigenous Knowledge she cares as wisdom keeper, she is and builds a bridge between systems as a spiritual coach, priestess, diviner and counselor.
She however does not see herself as a healer – but rather a mirror-reflecting-the-sun, who ignites others into their own healing superpowers.

Rivers are her respite, forests her fortitude, mountains her mainstay.
The quest for harmony, co- existence and complimentarity underpins her endeavours.
