Our call this month is called "Transforming our World from the Inside Out", hosted by Eva Ackerman.
On this special call, we will receive transmissions & teachings from Arhuaco elder Calixto Suarez, and ancestral wisdom & stories from Grandfather Woableza of the Lakota/Dakota nation.
Based on the principle of Universality, Calixto believes the work of inner transformation is fundamental to his vital mission of Ancestral Land Recovery and Sacred Site protection. Practicing, inner work allows us to recover our internal sacred site — our inherent value, peace, and inner knowing, — and to remember that no matter the circumstance, we all have the. potential to be internally free. As we harmonize our inner landscapes., we naturally become more unified, devoted and effective stewards of the Earth and all our relations.
For me, that matters the most is that the lands are healthy, the water is pure, the air is free from virus and the human beings are at peace with themselves. This is my impulse and my intention: to speak of the importance of the sacred places and of how sacred we are.

Grandfather Woableza trawls to us carrying a tapestry of wisdom, woven together from his many journeys and rich experiences as a true wise elder in this time. With him, he brings a good message from his travels - from the heart of Standing Rock to the vision of the Grandmothers to councils with Indigenous elders across the Americas.
Through the Grandmothers... I see in their eyes the rich legacies of love, strength, compassion, and achievement that they will pass on to their families and communities.
