Valo Tulee Pohjolasta Paneeli
Valomedia kutsui kokoon huikean paneelin puhujia keväällä 2021. Sain olla yksi niistä. Pohdimme mitä tarkoittaa sanonta, "Valo tulee Pohjolasta?" ja paransimme yhdessä maailmaa.
Dawn of Peace is a creative collective and peace organisation, dedicated to protecting the integrity and sacredness of all Life through conscious activism. Our mission is to build bridges and create true peace by educating people about the spiritual reality of life. We advocate for peace, holistic healing, and self sovereignty as vital tools for the evolution of humanity.
The mission of Police For Freedom is to re-humanise our societies, bringing back trust and unity between the security forces and the people. The peaceful marches, events, campaigns and content created by Police For Freedom aim to educate people about their human rights, civil liberties, constitutional rights as well as the ethical code of conduct for the police.
Henna Maria is the epitome of what it means to be a spiritual activist. Perhaps the harsh climate of Finland, her native country, was good 'training ground' for the life she was destined to live. With its long winters, sub-arctic temperatures and an extended twilight from May to August where the sun doesn't set at all in the north, Finland definitely infuses its inhabitants with a unique expression of resilience, integrity and strength, essential attributes for any warrior woman worth her weight in light.
Now grounded in warmer climes in the Andalusian Mountains, Henna weaves her special blend of heart-centered practices and humanitarian projects to assist the shifting of human consciousness. As a writer, speaker, retreat leader, healer, peacemaker and advocate of Mother Earth, she has been a driving force in bringing awareness and consciousness to the vaccine debate and educating people about their health options and their rights.
When I first heard of Henna and her mission, I was immediately inspired and have followed her work and her journey ever since. It was such a privilege to connect with her to discuss body sovereignty, sacred evolution and holistic health and to discover what makes this amazing human tick.
Henna shares with us such profound wisdom from her activism on how we can move forward as a society towards greater Peace, Truth, Kindness, and Integrity. A society that is beneficial for all.
Henna Maria- I watched your video last night of the 10 stages for the first time. It’s very clear and powerful. Thank you for your insight and courage, as well as your authentic presentation. We will be sharing this with our network of networks through Thrive!
Well done Henna - keep up the good work and spreading knowledge to those who are unaware and fast asleep.
This message has also streamed from my heart, so I am enlivened to have another woman speaking this truth to power.
There’s something about Henna. She’s calm and she’s radiant. So before she even opens her mouth, I’m gonna listen to her.
As a seeking soul, I have always been passionate about the pains and glories of the human experience...
Having grown up in a tiny town in a Finnish forest, I was naturally called to explore the world. By the age of 16 I moved away from home to study expressive arts, and at 18 my adventure continued to California, where I first found my activism helping the homeless in San Francisco. I returned to Finland and in 2008 I started campaigning for human rights with Amnesty International. My love for the English language and humanitarian work took me to University to study Translation Science and Psychology, and work as a simultaneous interpreter in UN peace keeper trainings. However, this work soon proved not to be right for my character. As an interpreter one has no voice, and I had a message of my own to share.
In 2011, I started to find my true voice and the spiritual dimension of life began to reveal itself to me. I dove into a space of deep self-reflection and became vegan. This profound transformation of my worldview took me on a journey to pursue my love for the expressive arts again and leave the academic world behind. I moved to London to explore theatre as a means to convey the rich inner worlds - which I had been connecting to more and more through poetry and songwriting. I began advocating for animal rights and running prominent raw-centric vegan restaurants. This gave me valuable insights into nutrition and taught me to live by the principle of “let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food”.
My search to comprehend the inner and outer landscapes of life eventually took me to the cradle of indigenous wisdom, the Amazon Rainforest. Living in London, I met my husband Richard, who also shared my love for the arts as a music producer and writer. He introduced the world of curanderismo to me and together we moved to Peru. In our five years of learning ancestral healing arts with the Shipibo tribe, we specialised in the art of icaros - songs of prayer and healing.
In 2019 I founded Dawn of Peace, bringing together my love for activism and spirituality, and began forming a collective of peace makers, who have the capacity to address the diverse issues of our world from a holistic and compassionate perspective. Our mission is to teach people about the spiritual reality of life, human and animal rights, medical freedom and self-sovereignty.
In 2021, as a response to rising totalitarianism, I co-founded the international Police For Freedom movement - educating police and civilians about our natural rights, in order to build unity and rehumanise our societies.
As a true lover of humanity, my heart rejoices at the sight of golden threads of human connection being weaved across the world right now. Through excruciating pain, we are finding our sacred boundaries again. We are remembering our purpose and our place in this Creation. It is with great honour and gratitude that I carry the medicine of the ancients and continue to walk the path of service.
May all beings be free,
" Is it love to remain silent and
watch the world burn?"
