Hidden Seeds of Natural Healing & Curing

June 30 – July 3, 2014 

A prayer was uttered, for some time now, maybe since the time of the dark sun over 500 years ago.  The sun is returning, peaking over the horizon now, calling forth the seventh generation. We have each been dreaming this dream of the great gathering for a long time.
And today, here we are, waking up in the dream.

The United Religions Initiative (URI) is a global grassroots interfaith network that cultivates peace and justice by engaging people to bridge religious and cultural differences and work together for the good of their communities and the world. URI continues to create a genuinely inclusive organization with no barriers to anyone to fully take part. In the spirit of the vision of URI, we were honored to invite global participation of Indigenous leaders to the Circle of Wisdom Keepers, to bring the most ancient wisdom into our midst, and to guide and inform us about living in harmony with one another and the environment that gives us life.

From June 30 through July 3, 2014, URI’s Global Indigenous Initiative (GII) Gathering, Hidden Seeds of Natural Healing & Curing, (Hidden Seeds) brought together global Indigenous wisdom keepers from six continents, recognizing that in the Indigenous way of being, everything begins with relationship: relationship with self, each other, Mother Earth and the Cosmos. Therefore, Hidden Seeds facilitated a shared experience of ceremony and ritual to ground the energy and provide a center for a deeper level of “listening”.  Out of this sacred space, the Circle of Wisdom Keepers addressed “indigenous” from a global perspective, to identify practical issues and concerns based on history and culture, and to build on the strengths of each other, the first step in creating a plan of action for the future of the URI Global Indigenous Initiative.
