THE AWAKENING THE DREAMER, CHANGING THE DREAM SYMPOSIUM is part of a rapidly expanding global initiative, already in 80 countries in 16 languages. Experienced by hundreds of thousands of people, it is a unique, powerful exploration into the links between humanity's most critical concerns:
* environmental sustainability,
* social justice, and
* spiritual fulfillment.
Live facilitation is combined with a tapestry of video interviews and participant interaction, drawing upon leading edge information and the wisdom of our time, with some of our most respected global elders, luminaries and leaders, including:
Desmond Tutu, Lynne Twist, Van Jones, Paul Hawken, Thich Nhat Hanh, Charles Eisenstein, Thomas Berry, Wangari Maathai, Majora Carter, Carl Anthony, Brian Swimme, Julia Butterfly Hill, Tom Goldtooth, Charles Eisenstein, Maude Barlow, John Robbins, Jakada Imani, Jeanette Armstrong, Matthew Fox, and many more.
Together we will go on a journey of inquiry into what's so on planet Earth, and what's possible for the future. We'll grapple with un-examined assumptions underlying how we see ourselves and how we operate in the world today.
You will come away with new and deeper levels of both awareness and readiness for action, with a profound sense of potential, hope, and purpose, in a profound personal state which Martha Graham and Paul Hawken have called "blessed unrest."
THE AWAKENING THE DREAMER, CHANGING THE DREAM SYMPOSIUM was created by the Pachamama Alliance (www.pachamama.org), and is periodically updated and adapted, with input from thousands of individuals and organizations from around the world. Paul Hawken described the Pachamama Alliance as, "...the most important single NGO (non-governmental organization) in the world today...because they are changing the one thing that can change everything: hearts and minds."
We will share a gluten-free, non-gmo vegetarian meal, with vegan option, at around 1:00 pm. If you enjoy cooking, you're welcome to bring something to share, or simply enjoy the meal.
