Public Lecture: Dr Lewis Williams Wednesday 13th October @ 7pm Chapel by the Sea Bondi Beach 9130-3445

"We live in a world that speaks"

We humans are part of a deeper Life--World that is alive, participatory and profoundly relational. However many of us have forgotten how to belong and how to listen. In a world where materialism and Western Science have come to dominate, colonization is not only about people and lands but ultimately about human consciousness and perception - perhaps the many symptoms of our social, environmental and economic ills represent a deeper crisis of ecological relationship.

As a person whose psycho-spiritual history is both colonizer and colonized, Lewis will draw on her own experiences, and work with indigenous (Ngai Te Rangi, and Cree peoples) and immigrant communities in Aotearoa and Canada which relate to the recovery of this deeper Life World of interconnectedness. She will then apply this to the work of K.I.N.; a growing international movement whose aim is human cultural diversity for bio-diversity through the recovery of indigenous worldviews within all cultures.

BIO Lewis Williams, PhD, is the Founder and Chair of K.I.N., an eco-activist, social innovator community developer and academic. Born in Aotearoa and of Ngai Te Rangi and Scottish descent her work is with people and organizations to deepen their life-world perspective and to apply this understanding to collective ecological action. She has researched, published and taught on a variety of issues relating to ecological well-being and has worked with a wide range of cultural groups. Formerly Director of the Prairie Region Health Promotion Research Center and Associate Professor with the Department of Native Studies, University of Saskatchewan, Lewis is the led editor of a soon to be published book on ecological praxis which specifically bring together a range of indigenous, intercultural and spiritual perspectives to this field.
