April 2018: Shamanistic Festival
We were very honored and happy to be with our Celtic Grandmother Line Sturny and Patrick Dacquay at the Festival by in April 2018.

9th June 2018: Support Maya relatives
With dear Brother Jos Kester we gathered at Oostraven in Epe, The Netherlands, to support Maya relatives that reached out to us to join their gathering later that year.
With our own Indigenous European ceremony, OerNorsk Seidr ceremony by an Indigenous European Grandmother and our dear French Celtic sister Grandmother Line-france Sturny, we shook up this old land of Europe, with a whole group of Sister Grandmothers, great Men and Women and beautiful Children. To let Mother Earth and our ancestors know we are here. The Sacred Site of The Tumuli around the corner is a magical place to pray with them. With our bare feet we expressed we can feel Her and we want to move with Her in the transition She is in. With our soulvoice, drums and rattles, we let the world know that love can flow, that we can embrace everybody. That is peace our mission. We, the people that can hear this call!”
June 2018: Peace Pledge Project
In 2018 our dear Grandmother Marjan Pattje of the Cirlce of Grandmothers of the Low Lands was representing Four Worlds Europe in Greenland and Assisi Italy, in a journey with the Peace Pledge Project, invited to the Sacred Lands, Sacred Water and Sacred Big Ice. Welcomed by our dear Inuit Elder Angaangaq, Indigenous Lands of …
at the Big Ice that is melting in record speed. The ice in the picture is 80 meter high and only 20 years ago the ice at this place was 1500 meter. “Instead of melting the Big Ice we need to melt the ice in the Hearts of Man.”
Water is what connects us all and it is what will create the greatest crises in the future, either too much or too little,
floodings or droughts.
With spiritual and religious leaders, business people, artists and politicians coming together from all over the world. We gathered to find common ground in our fundamental values and believes no matter what path you come from, the basics are pretty much the same, the golden rule. How can we come close thanks to ancient wisdom instead of using it as a tool for separation.
This gathering was made possible thanks to the beautiful initiative Peace Pledge Project initiated by Dr. Johannes Witteveen, former Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund and a world-renowned Sufi leader.

22-23 June 2018: Earth Trusteeship Gathering in The Hague
We were grateful to participate in the Earth Trusteeship Gathering in The Hague 22-23 June 2018, that served as a welcome space for different initiatives, which share an interest in governance, law and legal structures, Earth practices and advocacy with the aim to heal the relationship between humanity and ecosystem Earth and fulfill our responsibilities as Trustees of the Earth, an inspiring and dynamic platform to exchange and strengthen people from all parts of the world who care to redefine the relationships between humans and nature. An opportunity for The Earth Charter to take the next step and cooperate with the Rights for Mother Earth movement. As we are committed to following the Instructions and the guidances by Indigenous prophecies and Elders, to have Indigenous take the lead in restructuring governance structures of our communities, to have Indigenous Grandmothers in the initiating phase of all newly created initiatives, to create space for youth to be our teachers, to give them a voice at first hand, we were very honored to hear the Youth speak by Fadilah Ohorella representing the Indigenous AliFUru peoples, Youth from Earth Guardians The Hague, our front running Ambassador of Future Generations Jan Van De Venis, and young people from The Earth Charter. There was the Sacred Fire, inviting the 4 directions and holding space during this gathering, and grateful for all who paved the way, all our dear relatives holding space and working hard towards serving humanity and Mother Earth.
