Event Description

Building on the foundation of the Pachamama Alliance’s “Awaken the Dreamer” initiative, the Awaken and Change Symposium is a thought-provoking, challenging, and deeply moving multimedia presentation that features the combined wisdom of such international luminaries as Julia Butterfly Hill, Paul Hawken, Brian Swimme, Maude Barlowe, Van Jones and Desmond Tutu. Through a powerful combination of rich audiovisual materials, cutting-edge information and personal reflection exercises, trained facilitators lead participants through an exploration of four critical questions about our relationship with the planet:

Where are we? - Examining the current social and environmental realities of the world
How did we get here? - Examining the root cause of our current imbalances
What's possible for the future? - Discovering new ways of relating to one another and the Earth in this emerging movement for change
Where do we go from here? - Understanding the impact of our personal and collective actions, and, ultimately, how we can be the change we want to see in the world

Suggested donation: $15 – 50 (no one turned away for a lack of funds)
