The 3rd Spirit Matters Gathering

Hearing and Listening: Youth and Elders in the Web of Life 

June 18th-20th, 2010, OISE/UT

This year's Spirit Matters was an intergenerational gathering and celebration that joins Youth and Elders together in hearing and listening, play and action, and story and place. This gathering brought Youth and Elders together to enter into deep dialogue on the profound challenges that we are facing in the first quater of the Twenty First Century. We spent three days playing, sharing, listening, eating, making music, and finding ways to understand each other's sacred viewpoints. We heard collective fears, desires, and dreams that we all carry with us as we face the formidable challenges of this moment in time.
