As our relationship to Earth travels down a dangerous path, it has become clear that we cannot sustain the stress of our modern ways. On a quest to restore balance, Tribal Leaders from around the world gather in Greenland to witness the awakening of a 20,000 year old Prophecy. Surrounded by melting ice caps, Spiritual Leaders from the four corners of the Earth share the wisdom, prophecies and ceremonies of their ancestors. In an unprecedented gathering,they remember the wounds of the past and embrace the spirit that has endured. sacred-fireTogether they reveal a message that can give hope to the next seven generations. Walk with them and discover ancient knowledge long forgotten. Listen to the wisdom of their ancestors. Feel their connection to Mother Earth. Stand with these extraordinary “Bridgewalkers” around the Sacred Fire as they bridge the mind to the heart, the heart to the land, and the land to the one human family!

Director’s Statement

The film, BridgeWalkers and the Tribal Leaders, Elders and Shaman represented in this film have forever cracked my heart wide open! To experience the Ancient Indigenous Wisdom, Ceremonies and Prophecies has allowed me to love more deeply, to purposefully connect with our Beloved Earth and to recognize the equanimity of All life! It is the gifts of these Tribal Leaders and there willingness to dedicate their lives in service to our Earth and Humanity that inspires me to bring forth this film and share it with the world.

I encourage you to ponder for a moment the history of colonization and stripping away of Ancient Traditions, Cultures, Languages and Belief systems never completely revealed in our own history books. Today these same Tribal People are willing to move through the wounds put upon them and their ancestors as they help us all reconnect with the land and our own deepest hearts. This is why I love my work as a doc filmmaker. I am humbled by those who are living their purpose in hopes that others might do the same! This is the “Juice” of
life!

With gratitude,

Kara
