Weaving bridges -
between the modern world and indigenous wisdom
GIAs wisdom council consists of indigenous Elders and whenever possible the person they chose from the next generation to be their successor in carrying and embodying their wisdom tradition.
We have a special and personal connect to these Elders and aim to support the spreading of their wisdom as per their wishes, connect them to Elders from other traditions and work with them to co-develop and implement projects in and for their communities.
Our approach is one of partnership as we have much to learn from and give to each other. Ancient wisdom traditions can guide the modern world to evolve into an Age of Wisdom. And the modern world can support indigenous communities with the willingness to learn and listen, and with consciously applied capital, technology and administrative expertise we can jointly develop, realise and own projects that allow to preserve biodiversity, the essence of indigenous culture while healing old wounds and empowering indigenous communities.
