Melting the Ice in the Heart of Man

Angaangaq is an Eskimo-Kalaallit Elder from Greenland whose family belongs to the healers of the Far North of that land. His name means ‘The man who looks like his Uncle.’ And his teachings are deeply rooted in the wisdom of the oral healing traditions of his people.

The training he received from his Grandmother prepared him for the task that he’s embarked on as a key international speaker, alerting the world to the melting of the Big Ice. As he says, “Only by melting the ice in the heart of Man do we have a chance to change, and begin using knowledge wisely. The greatest distance in the existence of Man is not from here to there nor from there to here - it is from the mind to the heart. Unless one conquers that distance we can never learn to soar like an eagle and realize our immensity within.”
