This is a healing, restorative, and rejuvenating journey into the heart of New Zealand where we will stay in healing places, visit sacred locations, and join together with our Maori Grandmothers, brothers, and sisters in honoring life, our connection with each other, and the wisdom teachings that have been passed down from generation to generation.

  • Visit Dr. Rangimarie Turuki Rose Pere, Tohunga (spiritual elder) of the Maori
  • Stay in a Marae, sacred longhouse, an honor most New Zealanders will never know
  • Travel to Lake Waikaremoana, a deeply sacred place to the Maori, Sharda Retreat Center, and many other sacred natural places.
  • Daily teachings, sharings, wisdom, and programs from Maori Grandmother Eila Paul, Maori Great-Grandmother Moetu Taiha, Ojibwe Great-Grandmother Mary Lyons, and Sufi Kefayat Grandmother Devi Tide, all of whom will be joining on this journey!
  • Healing Spring-fed Hot Tubs





Water Is Life Graphic.png       WE ARE GOING TO STANDING ROCK       

Grandmothers Mary and Devi journey with Jalilah, Akbar, Jessica, Jaqui, and some of Grandmother Mary’s Family, on a Solidarity Journey to Standing Rock, Nov 11-13, to stand in solidarity to say that WATER IS LIFE in solidarity and friendship with the over 200 tribes that have gathered in Standing Rock. Especially moving is the call from Lakota-Sioux Chief Arvol Looking Horse for religious and spiritual leaders, and people of all kind, to come to Standing Rock.

Aug 30th:

We want to give thanks to everyone who is with us on this Journey. The people at the Rigpa Dharma Center where we are staying who are so generous and kind. The people we met tonight, some from far away as Colombia. The hall here was over packed – so many people joining their hearts with ours. We are so grateful.
We sang Rose’s song A EE O, in German. It was fabulous. Eyes overflowed. Our hearts celebrate in love.
And we are grateful for the children who were here tonight. And the Grandfathers who were here to support us all.
We are with you. We feel your presence.
Devi, Mary, Moetu, Eila, Pershlie, Sharifa Nur, Jalila

Aug 29th:

Hi Everyone,
This is our first night on the Journey. I’m here with Great Grandmother Mary and Akbar. We all flew in today, at different times. Max, Katerina and Grandmother Moetu welcomed us, and brought us to the Rigpa Dharma Center here in Berlin. This is an exquisite retreat with a natural park, sacred spaces, and clean, bright, spacious and clear atmosphere. We are at home.

With respect for those who live here, their ancestors and also for this land, 10 of us made an offering, asking that we be allowed to come onto this land – not to take, but to learn, to receive and to share. It was a a precious moment for all of us. We are grateful to be here.

Grandmother Moetu Taiha sends aroha nu nui to all our dear ones near far and wide

It’s been a lovely beginning.
We are with you in heart and spirit. We feel your presence.

September 2nd: Water Ceremonies at Muritz Lake

September 2nd: Water Ceremonies at Muritz Lake

After breakfast our group got onto the park bus and headed to Germany’s largest lake, Muritz Lake, which is fed by no rivers yet feeds many rivers, has drinking-quality crystal-clear waters, and is the home to many sea eagles, herons, fish, snakes, and ravens, who all visited us while there. Muritz literally translates to “little ocean” and is a Slavic name.

Great-Grandmother Mary brought water from Axel’s well that she had prayed over for 24hrs, and had everyone put their love and prayers for healing the waters of the world (especially in North Dakota and Hopi Reservation). We carried the pail to the lake where Grandmother Alina (a local German Grandmother who prays for the water and nature spirits hereabouts) welcomed us to the waters with Grandmother Akila and Axel, who stood ankle deep in the Muritz.

(No photos were taken of any ceremony)

We sang the water song from Doreen Day and Grandmothers Moetu and Eila led us in the Maori Puri, which is a symbolic purification dunking fully in the waters – we sang holding hands and walking out across the soft silty lake bed into the chilly shallow lake with sunshine beaming down all around us. This was about becoming one with the water, remembering to be one with the waters, and returning to that pure state.

A German biologist offered her song and invited all to pray silently for the waters of the Muritz and the world, and we closed by drinking the blessed waters from Grandmother Mary.

  1. As we share in the Havasupai Circle – – – Never speaking. I listen, I care. I feel. I sing. I prayer. From the great trunk I cry for the pain and suffering of the branches of our humanness. There are no words to convey what is occurring for I hear and am absorbed within that which is transpiring behind that which appears. A Great Blessing It Is.
