About Us

Ehama Institute is a nonprofit 501(c)(3)  teaching organization which carries an ancient body of self-knowledge and earth wisdom. It is located near the village of Abiquiú in northern New Mexico in the high desert overlooking red earth canyonlands. The Institute has worked globally with individuals, training groups, organizations, and communities for over three decades.


As humanity, we are a part of the interrelated, interdependent web of life.  We each affect the entire web, the world, and each other. We are kin to all species and yet, we have forgotten.  We are a part of a system that is mostly invisible to us.  We live in a relational world while remaining blind to the impact we create.

Ehama Institute carries ancient tools–old wisdom maps or wheels. These tools are like lenses that can open our sight and our consciousness, leading to new understanding, reconnection, and the flowering of human potential on our planet.

The use of these ancient tools can open a new path, which if we choose to walk it, has the potential to lead to unity, right relationship, and the embodied practice of reciprocity. Together we have the possibility to heal our past, to free our present, and to empower us to dream our collective future.

Moving from the past to the future, by way of the present is a grand quest.  To cross the threshold, we need to ask “What are the ways of the past we need to let go?  What is no longer serving the whole?  What is needed to heal the trauma we have helped create?   Where is the hidden potential yet to be revealed in our present? What calls to us from our unknown future?”


WindEagle, Founding Director, dedicates her time to the unfolding of collective wisdom, the awakening of higher consciousness, and the calling forth of the highest potential for the benefit of all beings.



RainbowHawk (1923-2012) and WindEagle founded Ehama Institute in 1995 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) teaching organization. Together they worked with individuals, training groups, organizations, and communities throughout the world for twenty-five years.


In 2003, RainbowHawk and WindEagle published their first book, Heart Seeds, a message from the ancestors, in which they recount the ancient oral stories of remembrance and share the relevance of these “heart seeds” for both the present time and our collective future.

In 2007, the World Foundation for the Discipline of Peace, a Global Expression of Ehama Institute, was formed to create a world-wise People’s Movement of the First Peace. This People’s Movement is based on Eight Universal Principles and Practices of Peace which calls for the coming together of many traditions, cultures, and ages with the intent of celebrating our unique ways of creating peace in the self.

In 2009, the People’s Movement of the First Peace was launched with people attending from eleven nations. Representatives from Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Navajo, Sikh traditions—a confluence of many wisdom rivers—shared their respective practices of peace, awakening our collective capacity to live peace in the self as a daily practice.

Since its inception in 2012, the Evocative Leadership Mastery™️ training program has touched participants from Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, United Kingdom, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Dubai, Jordan, Singapore, Japan, Canada, and the United States.

Evocative leadership emerges from a culture of interrelatedness, which holds the deep value of relationship, respect for life and collective wisdom.  This training journey involves deep personal growth along with developing the capacity to evoke life-affirming outcomes in all rings of relationship—personal, partnership, community, and work—as these rings ripple out to create global impact.
