Mending the Hoop
Dream the future
Free the present
Heal the past
Ehama Institute carries ancient wisdom maps, functioning like windows into our true identity, helping us remember who we are. Walking the pathways of remembrance to heal our past, enables us to access the freedom of the present. Only then can we dream into our future together.
As an Institute, we carry the dream of the peoples of the world able to collaborate through council, a way of deep wisdom, opening pathways for the future. We carry the dream of youth council, finding solutions for the United Nations sustainability goals, benefiting all peoples. We carry the dream of wholeness, balancing the feminine and masculine energies in individuals, partnerships, and society. We carry the dream of First Peace, living peace in the self.
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?”
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.

Evoking Potential and Possibility
Harnessing the Power of Higher Consciousness to Meet Our Global Challenges
To evoke is to call forward. In the Evocative Leadership Mastery™ training, we first open how to evoke the self. Then we explore how to evoke or call forward the most life-affirming solutions, qualities and outcomes in our communities, our work, and our world. When we can do this in ourselves and with each other, we open to a new kind of leadership.
The quality and variety of thought consciousness needed to appropriately respond to the challenges leaders face, as they make high-impact decisions, must come from a deeper level of wisdom than ever before. Evocative Leadership Mastery™ is a master-level training program that presents a hands-on experience of training and activation of the unique inherent wisdom of the Eight Universal Intelligences.
Today’s leaders need these subtle and complex skills as they navigate the volatile, complex and ambiguous environment of today’s world. The journey of Evocative Leadership Mastery™ trains capabilities and competencies that are vital to shaping our future.
As a part of the second year, the TOOL Intensive is a deep practice in working with individuals, partnership, and teams. We offer eight vital tools with an emphasis on evoking. The Intensive training prepares the evocative leader to evoke the highest potential from self and others, with tools that inspire, grow, and ignite the best in each of us to grow the future toward our dreams of a sustainable and peaceful world.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Evocative Leadership Mastery™️
As a part of the second year, the COUNCIL Intensive is a profound earth-based practice to gather the voices of the people to share wisdom perspectives and move toward wholeness in our relationships, communities, and world. Each session of the COUNCIL Intensive will open forms of council integrated through experiential practice and application in different settings, while deepening the inner council and enhancing access to our own inner wisdom.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Evocative Leadership Mastery™️
CREATING CIRCLES OF PEACE IN COMMUNITY
Ehama Institute works to foster peace in community by offering First Peace Circles.
The journey offered in a First Peace Circle opens deep dialogue on how we can create peace in the self by living in harmony with the universe. Principles and Practices of Peace are shared and call for the coming together of many traditions, cultures, and ages, intending to celebrate our unique ways of creating peace in the self.
We are living in one of the most important times in the history of humanity. We face many challenges that affect our relationships across race, creed, gender, social economics, climate, and environment. We often feel polarized and at opposites with those we meet in our daily living, and yet we know, shift is possible. We are in a profound moment in the raising of consciousness in our world and each of us is needed for this shift to take place. Are you one that will step forward to make your contribution toward peace on this planet?
SeedPlanter training, offered in person and online, prepares participants to become a Circle Leader. This invitation is for anyone who shares a passion for creating a culture of peace: Peace Leaders, Peace Makers, Peace Builders, Peace Dreamers, and Peace Educators and those who share a longing for peace who are called to contribute to their community by starting a First Peace Circle.
SEED CIRCLES are a series of gatherings, held once a month over eight months, open to First Peace Circle Leaders following their SeedPlanter Training. Each session is designed as a Teaching Fire in which there are questions shared by Circle Leaders followed by discussion based on experience and practice. Questions are followed by open dialog and deepening understanding of principles and practices of First Peace and how to expand the circle learning in First Peace Circles.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of SeedPlanter Training

Evoking profound insights and evolving the spirit consciousness are the signposts on this journey.

A CALL TO QUEST
A Journey Shield Quest is a deep and profound voyage into the self and life’s passages. Each human walks a unique trail in this lifetime and when we are called, it is important to bring our deepest heart question to the Mother Earth and to quest with Her. This healing journey quest is one that awakens a depth of understanding that mirrors true meaning in each step of this life walk. There are times in our lives when we are called to quest, to seek our vision, to assist us in our transformation, or to find the deep healing our hearts require. When we are called to quest, we feel compelled to come to the Mother Earth.
