Global Sunrise Ceremony

September 22



“A Call has been made by the National Turtle Lodge Elders’ and Knowledge Keepers’ Council for a Global Sunrise Ceremony next Wednesday September 22, 2021.

JOIN us in your area, through your way of doing ceremony, to unify as the human family, for this Global Sunrise Ceremony on the day of the Equinox!

*These spiritual efforts are needed more than ever and must take the lead in our global efforts to address climate change.*

We are very much looking forward to the initiation of this act of spiritual unity. We will be coming together at Sunrise to honour the Grandfather Sun and Mother Earth, seeking their guidance as Mother Earth prepares to give birth to a new life. 

We hope you will join us in this collective act of unity, conducting a Sunrise Ceremony in your area at your respective Sunrise, as we greet the sun in Ceremony, offering our prayers and intentions on the day of the Fall Equinox on Turtle Island (North America), in a Spiritual Call to unite Humanity.

There is a spiritual light placed in every living being, visibly expressed in the sun. It is through aligning with the great forces of the sun that we seek a return to the Spirit: the guidance and strength to live the original instructions we were all given as human beings.

Please spread the word and invite those in your circle to join us as we offer our prayers and do this ceremony in our own unique traditions in a collective way.

We invite you to join us in this Prayer offered in Gratitude by Elder Elizabeth Kapu’uwailani Lindsey and Elder Dr. Dave Courchene (Nitamabit/Nii Gaani Aki Inini)

To the Great Mystery, who is known by many names, whose vision we call Creation, thank you for breathing your Spirit into Mother Earth and for bringing her to life and for imbuing all living beings with your shimmering Light. Humanity has fallen asleep and neglected our sacred duty to care for your Vision of Creation. Today we call upon the forces of the Universe, the Sun, the Stars, the Moon, and the Earth, to help awaken humanity to our original instructions. Led by the Spirit and the love we have for all our children and the land, it will be through a collective, unified approach that we will be guided to walk in a good way, and find the help we need to bring back a sacred understanding of life.

It is through our humility and gratitude to the Great One and the wonders of the Great Spirit that we place all children at the centre of our efforts, united in One Love, as One Voice.

In our hearts we believe in Love, the greatest force we all have, that connects us to all of Creation. We realize that as the Earth brings changes, we must change. We must all become People of the Heart.

Kinanaakomigo Manitou! With gratitude to our Great Creator!”
