The Kiva Ceremony

The heart of Roots of the Earth ceremony takes place inside an indigenous design of altar called "kiva" which consist of a circular excavation, an inside Earth altar where the Elders gather together to pray and to raise their invocations of healing and gratitude to Mother Earth around the holy fire, which is kept burning during the four days of the Prayers.

Roots of the Earth has managed to bring together in love, people of the 4 races in the 5 continents, creating bonds of unity and peace between various tribes/nations, even the ones who were against each other historically. Part of the dream and the vision of Raymundo Tigre Perez was accomplished in this way.

The participants of Roots of the Earth will have the opportunity to attend several workshops such as: perm culture, eco-construction, meditation, yoga, peace dances, music therapy, alternative medicine, vegetarian kitchen and many more workshops that year by year are added to our program. There are workshops for children as well, like painting, music, dance, story tellers and plays.

During the 4 days of the ceremony we all have the opportunity to receive the teachings and wisdom of these elders and spiritual leaders of the invited indigenous tribes from all over the world. This is a great chance to remember the importance of universal values like respect and take care to the Earth who is feeding us and giving us a place to build up our shelter to live, remember the value of living in community (common-unity) regardless the place where we come from, our language or the color of our skin... We all are one...
