Language of Spirit Conference
Science & Technology

SEED Graduate InstituteIs genius a noun or a verb? Has technology affected our essential humanness? Is it possible to have an original thought? These and other questions may be addressed in the process of deep dialogue at the 13th Annual Language of Spirit conference.

The conference is the only place on earth where every year Indigenous elders and Western scientists come together in mutual respect to discuss the underlying principles of the cosmos. This August 13th – 16th at the Embassy Suites in Albuquerque, NM, participants will gather for the 13th consecutive year to discuss the ramifications of modern science and technology upon our creativity. 

Sponsored by the Source for Educational Empowerment and Community Development (SEED), the Language of Spirit conferences have garnered an international reputation for creating positive change without conflict. The moderator of the dialogues is legendary elder Leroy Little Bear, former director of Native Studies at Harvard and the winner of the 2003 Aboriginal Person of the Year award for Canada.

The conference has already been the subject of three documentary films and two issues of Revision Journal magazine. The latest film, Journeying to Turtle Island by Spanish film maker Miryam Servet, will premiere this year and features physicist David Peat, author of Blackfoot Physics, who will be traveling again from Italy to participate in the dialogues. Other participants will include Tobasonakwut Kinew, an Anishanaabe elder and ceremonial leader; renowned Acoma author Simon Ortiz and Chickasaw author Linda Hogan, James O'Dea, fellow and immediate past president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences; Alfonso Montuori, jazz saxophonist and professor of leadership, Linda Shephard, author of Lifting the Veil: The Feminine Face of Science; and Ashok Gangadean, Professor of Philosophy and founder/director of the Global Dialogue Institute, and many more.

On Saturday evening, there will be a special concert of collaborative creativity featuring Dancing Earth, an internationally known Native American dance troupe, followed by jazz legend Kitty Margolis. Admission included in conference tuition. See for details or call 505-792-2900 to register or further questions.
