As we enter the 21st century we are experiencing a period of great change. For the first time ever the future of life on
earth is in the hands of human decisions and actions. It is a time of great irony, as in our rush to 'improve' the human
condition we have also created a world of broken connections - with each other and with the non-human world. Our
beautiful planet has become merely a source of materials and energy for the global consumer society, exploiting nature
and marginalising Indigenous cultures and spiritualities. The gap between rich and poor is widening, and many feel a
deep sense of loss and are fearful for the future.

The sense of wholeness, the sense of the divine, is missing from the lives of many.



This Day of Reflection brings together key speakers, educators, Indigenous and community leaders and others who are
interested in exploring these complex issues of our time
