Moving ceremonie at Russel Glacier with Stella Polaris* Lightambassadors

Dear friends of Stella Polaris*,

With the Russel Glacier, Greenland, in the background, a moving ceremony took place in July 2015. The Stella Polaris team invited the Lightambassadors of the expeditions 2012 and 2013 there. In a small ceremony with Shaman Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq at the sacred fire site, Sven Nieder presented each with a signed copy of the book to the project thanking all in the name of the team. And so the circle closed. The pictures came home, to the place of their origin, to the people who made them possible with their “painting with light”.

Not all Lightambassadors could come. Here are (from left)

Invitation to a Shamanic Spiritual Walk in Greenland with Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq

Dear Friends,

Angaangaq, mentor and friend of Stella Polaris* Ulloriarsuaq, invites you to a very special event in Greenland:

The Big Ice – Changing | Greenland

June 29 – July 4, 2015.

The Big Ice is melting. Now is the time for you and me to change.

Change begins in each one of us: by learning to honor ourselves and one another, Mother Nature and the animals. We are all citizens of one Mother Earth – nunarsuarput.

At the Big Ice there is that incredible silence … then all I can hear is myself. Walking in silence on the oldest crust of Mother Earth, I come home to myself.

I will experience Climate Change and Change within myself – in ceremony and in community with others … where Mother Earth is affected most .

Only by melting the ice in the heart of man, man will have a chance to change and begin using his knowledge wisely.

Join me, friend.


Be part of a unique shamanic spiritual walk with Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq unter the midnight sun in land of his ancestors.

Spectacular Photographs, thrilled Visitors – the 6. Dauner Fototage just ended successfully

Dear Friends,

the 6. Dauner Fototage, an event that brought more than 2000 photography interested visitors to the little town of Daun in the picturesque Eifel just ended.;art751,4159984

Sven and Laali, who supported Sven’s father Hans in organizing this event, also set up a table presenting the Standbild Dauner Fototagebook Stella Polaris* Ulloriarsuaq – The Shining Memory of Mother Earth.

Beautifully layed out, this book portrays in 45 large color prints the stunning photographs the team took in 2012 and 2013 in Greenland and also 23 exciting „making of“ photos in black and white.

The wonderful poetical essays by philosopher Dr. Christoph Quarch are much more than just text fillers in a picture book. The three essays Remain true to the Earth!, Melting the Ice in the Heart of Man and The Truth about Preservation give much food for thought about where we are going and what has to change. I hope to be interviewing Christoph soon to give you more insight and will be glad to ask him questions you might have.

Tech Data: Leica S, Elmarit-S 30 mm, ISO 320, F. 2.8, 60 seconds

Even though it looks like taken on another planet, the iridescent green light is of the Aurora Borealis.

„You can even see the Pleiades star constellation on the right. In the foreground is an ice sculpture shaped like a hatched egg. This picture is dedicated to Laali who was light ambassador for this scene and her unborn child. She was eight months pregnant with Sven’s child during this expedition. Sven assisted me to capture this image because the conditions made it very hard to handle the technical details. This is the only image of which can be said we really took it together.“ Nomi

Next stop for the works of Stella Polaris* Ulloriarsuaq will be in Munich at the Gallery of Filser & Gräf in April.
