From September 7-13, 2012, indigenous healers from the Altai, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, South Africa and Ethiopia gathered at sacred sites on the island of Jeju, South Korea. In the political tension of the region, local people protest the construction of a military base, and their indigenous shamans are underground. Business, governments, international organizations with authority to confront devastating Earth changes continue to flex their muscles, enjoying outmoded constructs of power. The elders say such rational, disconnected approaches will not work. They stepped center of the danger and touched the Earth.
