One Heart, One Hope

Indigenous Wisdom and the Future of Humanity - John Main Seminar 2020

With Alex Zatyrka

Given that most of our communication and exploration is - for the moment – online,
what better time to take part in an online seminar?

Alex Zatyrka SJ is the keynote speaker at the 2020 John Main Seminar: “One Heart, One Hope – Indigenous Wisdom and the Future of Humanity.” The supporting speakers included Tau Huirama and Vanessa Eldridge (New Zealand), Ana María Llamazares (Argentina), Puleng Matsaneng (South Africa), Ron Berezan and Ivan Rosypskye (Canada), Hilario Chi Canul (Mexico) and Laurence Freeman OSB (Bonnevaux).

Alex Zatyrka delivers two profound talks on indigenous culture, enriched by his pastoral missionary experience in Bolivia and Mexico. He explores the ‘theological attitude’ present in every culture which is our heart’s interior communication with God in the experience of transcendence.

Other speakers, including indigenous from three continents, witness powerfully to many of the ways in which their cultures speak directly and transmit wisdom to all of humanity today. These themes include respect and reverence for the Earth, the indispensable value of community and the need to acknowledge the wounds inflicted by colonialism which call for healing and reconciliation.
