“If Aniwa would manage to gather all the people in the world to receive these great gifts, the world will be a different place. Mother Earth would be in a better place. We would all use so much more love and kindness.”

Jessie D.

USA

"I'm in awe of how even just the words from our indigenous elders and the music of their communities have completely cracked my heart wide open- even through the screen. Every word spoken is said with such spirit, with such force, I'm hanging on every single word for the medicine I know it's offering me. Thank you Aniwa for supporting such sacred teachings and blessings to be broadcast far and wide, the domino effect of healing that has started because of this will ripple throughout so many communities and lives from here on out.”

Andrew S.

“Aniwa has tapped into the true transformative power of the online world. We are all interconnected in spirit and by Mother Earth and also by the internet. I’m so happy to use my time online to further my spiritual studies and stay connected with my community.”

Shantteh P.

"How do you explain taking away a lifetime's worth of priceless knowledge from an experience that lasts a handful of days? It’s truly a gift to be given such powerful information that not only helps us open our own hearts, minds, and souls but also shows us how to spread that love and wisdom to those around us- and beyond. Aniwa brings together some of the humblest, wisest, and most powerful leaders one might ever witness to do just that- to teach us how to brighten our lights in order for us to collectively increase the vibration of this planet. I am forever humbled and grateful to be able to learn so much from these beautiful souls and I am looking forward to witnessing the growth that Aniwa contributes to this world."

Janina S.

"Words can’t express my gratitude for Aniwa. I have been to the last two Aniwa gatherings. To receive the love and wisdom of all these elders from all over the world is wonderful. Aniwa to me was such a magical, heart-opening event. A beautiful opportunity to deepen the connection with amazing elders, to see their connection with nature, their kindness, their love, to learn about their traditions, to pray together, to receive deep healing, and to meet many lovely people and make new friends. It was a life-changing experience that opened my eyes to many things, which I knew deep inside but had forgotten. Especially sharing this with my mother was beautiful. I can't wait to join the next gathering!"

Brandon O.

"In a world so disconnected from spirit, Aniwa is the catalyst that bridges indigenous wisdom and the modern world. From their gatherings to online events, Aniwa facilitates a space in which we can learn more about ourselves and under the guidance of the elders, find healing, transformation, and a deeper relationship with nature around us."

A.C.

"The teachings and offerings from Indigenous Leaders and People thanks to Aniwa’s effort is a great gift. Feeling the wisdom, the open hearts, and generosity during the digital gatherings has expanded my perspective on what is possible, how to live with more alignment and trust in the power of intentional living and prayer. Each gathering offers an opportunity to go deeper, learn more, and gain insights into inner transformation. It is special to learn from such rich cultures and traditions about healing, empowerment, and living with integrity and heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you. "
