The Dawn of a New Time–A Sacred Solar Ceremony
During the event, “The Dawn of a New Time” in 2011, over 400 people gathered from around the world to the mountains of the Sierra Nevada, Santa Marta region in Colombia.
The four tribes from this region are the Arhuco, Kogis, Wiwa and Kankuamos and they welcomed all of us to their sacred spaces. Many of the visitors, the participants who specifically gathered for this event, came from countless tribes from all around the world.
This cultural exchange was hosted by Arhuaco elders with their guests from the Wiwa people. After several days of ceremony, discussion and experiencing the Arhuaco way of life many participants were visibly moved and changed forever.
On the 4th day, the President of the Grand Itza Maya Council of 13 Elders of the Yucatan, Pedro Pablo Chuc Cech and the Incan Sun Priest, Naupany Puma (two of the invited guests) introduced this sacred, precious and ancient ceremony. This “Sacred Solar Ceremony with the Sun-Rainbow” was intended to be inclusive of all tribes, to express deep reverence for all sentient beings, to bridge and unify the masculine and the feminine and to give homage to our sacred planet, the sun, the moon and the universe itself.
This ceremony, as well as other ceremonies and messages from these gatherings, are intended to help forge new ways of being, as the indigenous believe that this is “the Dawn of a New Time.”
This film was collaboratively created by the Foundation for Global Humanity (FGH).
