Have we peaked your interest? Have a look at the trailer to find out just how powerful and beautiful the message and see for yourself:


In November 2017, twelve highly spiritual Elders from wisdom traditions around the globe agreed to gather at the United Nations in New York City in a council called The Council of Twelve and Above. Setting their cultural differences aside, they conducted a unique ritual in complete unity on an ancestral point of concentrated energy. The United Nations sits on this point. Together they created the matrix of a new reality in which humans can live in harmony and love amongst themselves and with Nature.

The Twelve is a feature length documentary that gives a voice to wisdom traditions through the words of these twelve Elders. They share important messages that we can all benefit from in these troubled times. By reflecting on our behaviors and state of mind, we actively participate in implementing the new paradigm the Elders have created for us on the spiritual planes.

Each of the twelve share a long forgotten wisdom and knowing of our eternal and complex connection with Nature and all of humanity, reminding us what it means to be human and to how to live in harmony with each other and with Nature.

This film is about giving them the opportunity to speak their truth and let the world know about what they did for the benefit of all.

It is also about highlighting how wisdom traditions can be a source of inspiration and solutions for ourselves and our modern society.
Making this film available to our TGI community is one way we can support this important cause and we hope you will generously support the project — a film about the Soul of our humanity  – and the gift of preserving indigenous wisdom of the elders for future generations.

Your attendance will benefit both The Graduate Institute and Le Ciel Foundation so that together we may help build a more conscious, connected, and caring world.
