Earth Teachings for Future Generations:
The Power of Ceremony
Earth and humanity are in crisis. Indigenous teachings offer all of us a way forward through ceremony and earth-focused living.
In this passionate, hopeful film, Indigenous Elders and spiritual leaders apply their wisdom and knowledge to the healing of Mother Earth and Her inhabitants.
Stunning images and eight wisdom keepers from diverse traditions guide viewers into the world of ceremony and spiritual renewal. They urge us to remember who we really are – that if we go back in time far enough, we all come from a culture of ceremony that, if applied today, can restore us to balance.
