About the Role

Healing Our Spirit Worldwide – The Eighth Gathering in Sydney in 2018 brings together Indigenous peoples from around the world to gather and celebrate the power of our knowledge and our wisdom, to share our stories with pride and purpose and to harness the spirit within and around us.

The International Indigenous Council for Healing Our Spirit Worldwide has invited The Healing Foundation and The University of Sydney to join together to bring The Eighth Gathering to Sydney, Australia – a significant epicentre of Indigenous culture, community and activism.

Healing Our Spirit Worldwide – The Eighth Gathering will share the experiences, resilience and challenges confronting Indigenous peoples across the many paths of life and across many parts of the mother earth. The Gathering will recognise and strengthen our resilience. It will empower all of us, offering new and old teachings to our lives and futures.

Thousands of generations of Indigenous peoples have gathered, benefited from and shared knowledge that has sustained our culture and identity, our health and wellbeing, our relationships to each other, and our land and our spirit. Wisdom is created in these timeless relationships.

Hundreds of years of colonialism have exploited Indigenous knowledges, lands and people. It has disrupted knowledge gathering, sharing and remembering. It has unsettled our ability to nurture wisdom and spirit. In challenging times Indigenous peoples have relied upon and sought to renew the power of this knowledge and wisdom to sustain our identity, culture, families and communities.

Healing our Spirit Worldwide – The Eighth Gathering is our opportunity to share knowledge, wisdom, learning and experiences that foster relationships, understandings and new opportunities. This Gathering will explore the connections necessary to support individuals and communities, to promote their agency, and to look forward to sustainable, proud and confident Indigenous futures.
