In this pivotal year a 4th Spirit Matters gathering builds on those previous. In 2004, wisdom leaders from many traditions met in councils and dialogue circles to talk about humans reconnecting with the Earth in the Great Work. In 2007, leaders and elders from many peoples met as One Earth Community; Sharing our Stories. Twenty-eight elders, educators and youth from the Americas, Africa and Ireland, traveled the sacred sites of that island together in 2008. They did ceremonies and spoke together deeply in circle around healing colonization and rekindling indigenous spirit intergenerationally. In the years since that there have been multiple youth-elder circles with peoples from all four directions meeting in and around Toronto. By 2010, the 3rd Spirit Matters explored the theme Hearing and Listening: Youth and Elders in the Web of Life with more music, art and interconnected activism than ever before.
