We are at a pivotal moment in our collective history in which the human mind & sense of self that emerges are changing the face of our living world. Sometimes moving rapidly between denial & despair, our often isolated efforts to make change in the world can lead us to feelings of frustration, fear, & futility. Yet working together, there is great hope. Insights into our mental life & how to cultivate it well — getting to know & empower our consciousness, emotions, beliefs, identity, relationships & behavior — can determine how life on this planet unfolds now & for generations to come.
Inspired by these basic ideas & the mind skills needed for an awakening of awareness to a larger belonging as a self integrated fully with the living world we share, this gathering of clinicians, contemplative practitioners, ecological activists, educators, religious leaders, scientists, & others, engages in direct conversations about how to harness the human capacity to direct cultural evolution for wise action toward a more compassionate & generative way of being is a pressing need in our contemporary culture.
