is an Eskimo – Kalaallit Elder whose family belongs to the healers and Shamans of the Far North from Kalaallit Nunaat, Greenland. His name means “the man who looks like his uncle”.
In October 2007 he visited the Benediktushof in Holzkirchen. I had the chance to become acquainted with him, and he was calling his ancestors with his Qilaut in the center of the labyrinth.

His mother always said: “You have to give people a chance to change”. “You have to melt the ice in their hearts!”
His father once told him: “The greatest distance in man’s existence is that from his mind to his heart”.
With these messages Angaangaq is on the way worldwide.
So that we realize that we may no longer bring the Greenland ice to melting by our behavior.

Angaangaq with the Qilaut

From his website:

Melting the Ice in the Heart of Man is a teaching from the Eskimo-Kalaallit people, a peaceful culture thousands of years old that has never known war. It summons us to bridge the distance from our minds to our hearts through strength and gentleness; through compassion and love; through courage and grace, bringing about personal transformation and global healing for the times to come.

The time has come to unite our voices and our hearts, to walk our spiritual paths with practical feet, to restore the balance that’s been missing on the earth. We cannot wait. Through our Healing Circles, we create experiences that empower us to live more compassionately, transforming our world one life at a time, melting the ice in the heart of man.

  1. This speaks deeply to me… so much could be healed by melting the ice in our hearts! Perhaps, just perhaps, this is ta piece of the labyrinth’s purpose, and an insight into the connection between labyrinths and water. I will carry this wise advice with me, and I thank you for sharing it with us.


  2. This is so precious, these words so wise. What a beautiful person Angaangaq is. Thank you Erwin for introducing him here to us… how fortunate you are to have met him in person, but I think this also reflects you and your heart passion for your work and the labyrinth…
