The Remembering: A Feature Documentary
A story of remembering our ancient connections
A group of women, led by a Kontomble Voice Diviner, pilgrimage into Northern Mongolia to heal the wounds created by modernity’s disconnection from our ancestors and our ancient relationship with the Little People of the Earth.
As they journey deeper, they learn that the pain humanity carries today has a direct relationship with a deeper trauma that hasn’t been resolved. As lands were being conquered, lust and greed created systematic oppression which divided the people’s ancient connection to the land, the elemental Beings, and ourselves.
Following the messages from the Kontomble, the pilgrimage begins to seam together how living in reciprocity, honouring the Little People of the Earth, and harnessing our creativity are guiding lights for healing our collective wounds.
A film by liv mokai wheeler (EXECUTIVE PRODUCER) and emmy wu (CINEMATOGRAPHER & EDITOR)
Woven together by interviews and dreamlike vignettes, it’s a story of grief in being lost and forgotten, and how by remembering our sacred relationship with the Little People, we truly can heal the world.

BEHIND THE FILM
Liv Wheeler is a Kontomble Voice Diviner, a voice for the “Little People,” and international ritual facilitator. She trained and apprenticed for 8 years with Malidoma Some (author, PhD, West African Shaman) and made many pilgrimages to Burkina Faso. During that time, she met with the medicine people and also reconnected with the Little People known as the Kontomble.
Liv’s practice has been working with people individually as well as facilitating healing in community for 14 years. Her work has brought her both into national and the international communities where she facilitates group divination rituals. She tours the world facilitating ritual reminding people of their true nature, which is deeper than our modern selves would have us believe.
The calling from Mongolia came to Liv during several deep ayahuasca ceremonies, then continued to increase as time passed. Following the cues of Spirit, and through a synchronistic connection with the cinematographer, Emmy Wu, this film was born.
This film is the story of our ancestral connection with the Little People and to Mother Earth. In remembering where we came from, may we find our way again.
