The Aboriginal Gift – Spirituality for a Nation

A presentation by Dr David Tacey

7 – 9.00pm AEDT Thursday 3 March 2022

ONLINE using Zoom - all registrants will be sent a link and login.

We are pleased to offer this first Eremos event of our 40th Anniversary year and delighted that David Tacey, who is well known to Eremos members, will be our speaker. It’s offered online to enable members across the country and beyond to participate.

David Tacey will share a rich presentation exploring Aboriginal spirituality, law and belonging, and its value in addressing some of the spiritual, social and ecologi­cal challenges in our world today.Thumbnail

Miriam- Rose Ungunmerr of the Daly River has said, ‘Dadirri is perhaps the greatest gift we can give to our fellow Australians’. David will speak about the value of dadirri, or deep listening, which he describes as perhaps the world’s oldest contemplative practice. He will also explore some of the cultural and spiritual barriers that pre­vent our recognising the value of this gift.

Following the presentation there will be time for small group conversation and discussion with David.
