  • Jorge, te invito a que participes también del Grupo Pachamama de South Bay y Long Beach, que acabo de lanzar como un grupo adicional al de L.A. county. Dialoguemos de procesos colaborativos para co-presentar en Espanol para personas hispanas en estas areas. Tenemos 75% comunidad hispana y son mi foco principal en este momento para brindarles mayor entendimiento y enlazar actividad. Mis esfuerzos serán trabajar colaborativamente con participantes del grupo Iberoamericano en diversos proyectos que tengo en mente. Dialoguemos.

    Thanks to everyone for their input about how to handle the 5 followup sessions to the Introduction to Drawdown. I appreciated hearing the different ways you have handled this according to your own situations. It sounds like it almost takes its own life on once you start. I look forward to the next call.

    Awakening the Dreamer coming soon to Grants Pass, Oregon.

  • I look forward to creating a vibrant and engaged Pachamama community in our area. These are exciting and challenging times for all of us and we need our voices to be heard and our actions to move us in the direction we long for: an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just society. Starting locally sounds like a very good next step!

  • Another well attended Intro to Drawdown Presentation at the River Road Unitarian Universalist Church in Bethesda, Maryland. We had 60 attendees.

    Lore Rosenthal co-presented with me and continues to mentor me on the details of creating a successful presentation.

    This event was possible because of the fantastic planning from Rosemary Hodges , Trica Tice, Susan Eisendrath and Jack Lebowitz.

    Afterwards, this wonderful group invited Marc Elrich, the Montgomery County Executive, and other key government employees to discuss how the county is using Project Drawdown to respond to climate change.

    Fellow DC Alliance members rita zanin and Chuck Woolery attended. Plus, we were delighted that fellow member Jennye Johnson was able to drive up all the way from outside of Charlottesville, VA to attend, too.

  • 65+ attendees came out for the Introduction to Drawdown at the Ridewood Senior Community in Silver Spring, MD (Beltsville) on March 14th.

    Lore Rosenthal and I co-presented. Lore is such a good mentor, sharing a little more of the presentation duties at each event, plus modeling the tremendous amount of coordination work that goes into these presentations before and after the event.

    We held a full day ATD symposium to 40+ public kindergarten principals at Huadao Eco Community on March 20th. We had Amy, Xiao, Hans and I made a great facilitators team.

  • This painting was created by Verena Wild, a participant, who was inspired by the ideas and messages of the Game Changer Intensive.

    Verena says, "The essay "Humanity's choice" by Duane Elgin inspired me to do a painting that shows humanity's challenges and despair, as well as the vision of the cosmic garden of life that still exists and wants to be restored. I dedicate this painting to the vision that is the foundation of your course - the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible, so to say :)."

  • Hello Everyone. I'm wondering HOW CAN WE get Drawdown and supporting Pachamama materials to Greta Thunberg in Sweden and to young people here in the Sunrise Movement.
    In support for their work on the Green New Deal, I have ordered the book for Senator Markey and Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez which should arrive in their offices tomorrow, 3/22.
    I'm very glad to find this group and to be connecting with you from Gainesville, Florida, as a new member this morning.

  • Last night I found myself rethinking our whole conversation. There are so many ways I found to declutter my mind and environment. I begin today.

  • Hi guys! I from Tanzania. What about you?

  • I am very grateful for the work you have done and are doing and hope to join in to advance the cause.

  • Greetings - I'm happy and proud to be part of this awakened community of hope and action!

  • Hello Rochester, from the Fresno Pachamama Community! I sent a message to Sue, but Rogér informed me that she has currently escaped to locations unknown. :) The team that is involved in promoting the Fresno Community's various activities would like to know if you have any wisdom and insights you can offer to us. What have you found works for you? What doesn't? We will be collecting data from now on to see what kind of marketing tools seem to draw people the most in this area, but for now, we are kind of flying blind. Anything you can share would be very much appreciated!

  • We don't need a wall of prejudice to separate us from Mexico; We need a bridge of understanding to awaken our common humanity. Here's a devastating 6min video I shot depicting our inhumane immigration policies at the border www.americannightmarefilm.com
