Who We Are and What We Do
Our group encompasses a large geographic area we call Tampa Bay. We are a diverse community from all paths of life. We are interested in taking actions with other local organizations that are aligned with the vision of the Pachamama Alliance for sustaining a healthy Mother Earth, for all species, for all time.
We are a conscientious group who are committed to creating an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence in Tampa Bay and worldwide. We actively share, promote, and dream the Pachamama Alliance vision. Our intention is to use our creativity and innovation to offer the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium to the community of Tampa Bay. These symposiums generate inspiration, ideas, and connections that build upon and amplify the incredible work that is already being done in our community and worldwide.
The Areas This Community Includes
We gather people together from the City of Tampa and other areas of Hillsborough County and in Pinellas County from cities such as St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tarpon Springs. We include areas North into Pasco and Hernando Counties and South to Sarasota.
Our Community Story
In the summer of 2010, a diverse group of committed individuals convened at the St. Petersburg Campus of the University of South Florida dedicated to the idea of becoming facilitators for the Awakening the Dreamer Changing the Dream Symposium. This training was arranged by The Connection Partners and Senior Trainers from the Pachamama Alliance in San Francisco arrived to deliver the goods. Following that experience, a dedicated group moved out into the community charged with contributing to the creation of an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence on the planet.
Since then, it’s been no looking back! We are the ones we have been waiting for – and that includes you! Join us in the dream of creating the “more beautiful world our hearts know is possible!”
Our Community Activities
Our purpose is to orchestrate and deliver Symposiums in various arenas within Tampa Bay. We desire to subsequently form partnerships with attendees and affiliated organizations to explore the most effective 'next steps' of action that will maximize the positive impact on our social, environmental and political institutions.
Currently we connect with a wide array of government agencies, NGOs, NFPs, national, state, and local organizations, religious and spiritual groups, ethnic collectives, etc. participating in their events and actions to instigate the change which Joanna Macy calls, ‘The Great Turning.’
We are eager to participate with Pachamama groups and members around the State of Florida, in the United States, and Worldwide to affect the kinds of changes that keep us moving toward this new dream for humanity. We invite you to join us by becoming a jewel in Indra’s Net of cosmic connection.
