We are deeply aligned with the Pachamama Alliance’s mission, to create a environmentally sustainable, socially just, spiritually fulfilling human presence on planet earth.
Our current community coordinators are Margaret Rose de Cruz and Dan White. We are looking to engage more people in our community, and to re-energize ourselves to facilitate the new V.3 symposium.
The Areas This Community Includes
Our group covers a large geographic area, from North Jersey up to the Catskill Mountains in New York, and from New York City out to the tip of Long Island.
Our Community Story
The first members of our Facilitator team, Judy Leaf and Geri DeSapio, were trained in Garrison, NY in 2005. Judy was the community coordinator for four years, until she stepped down at a retreat in 2009 at Omega Institute. After that the leadership of our organization was coordinated by a team of three people. Most of our community members joined us after a Facilitator training in February 2010 at Lifebridge Sanctuary in Rosendale, NY. Since then we have facilitated 40+ symposiums in teams of 2, 3, or 4, and through this have gotten to know one another well. We have also held a number of day-long retreats for ourselves and interested new members, the most recent in Brooklyn, New York in September 2017. Many of us have taken the Game Changers’ Intensive, which has deepened our understanding of the roots of social and environmental dysfunction in our world.
