Relationship and community - indigenous and ancient wisdom

Now couldn't that be what we all need in the world today?
I spotted this in the Australian Aboriginal Cultures Gallery, spread over two levels, in the South Australian Museum Adelaide North Terrace. This is said to be the most comprehensive Aboriginal Cultural Gallery in the world, and I found it a wonderfully fascinating experience.

I explore the issue of relationship and indeed relatedness in the context of community in my book Healing This Wounded Earth, devoting a whole chapter to this very important healing influence...explaining why it is so important and what we can do to promote real healing community.

So often I find evidence that the world's indigenous tribes carry much wisdom that we would do well to heed. We ignore the ancient wisdoms at our peril. We may think we know best but we surely do not. 
And by one of those happy coincidences which are surely meant to happen, I just heard news of "The  Global Indigenous Wisdom Summit being organised by the Shift Network. Here is a free online gathering of some of the best the world can offer of indigenous wisdom - running from 18th to 20th November 2014. Please follow the link to see what will be covered and to sign up if you are interested.
