A symposium to help Lake County residents respond to global issues such as climate change, poverty and economic crisis will take place at the Kelseyville Senior Center on Saturday, Oct. 10, from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Community of Lake County, the symposium is an opportunity for people to understand how everyone can play a part in addressing these global issues and create a world that is sustainable for this and future generations.
Participants will explore topics of importance, using video, up-to-the-minute facts and ﬁgures, and dynamic group interaction. Some of the world’s leading experts on topics as diverse as the current state of the Earth’s biodiversity and the reality of the socio-economic disparity throughout the world will be heard.
In this symposium, each individual will discover the unique stand they wish to take for a more just, sustainable and fulfilling world. After the symposium, the facilitators expect that participants will leave empowered to take clear steps to embody their vision for a better world, having established new connections to work with others on common issues.
The Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium is an initiative of The Pachamama Alliance, a San Francisco-based nonproﬁt organization. The alliance’s mission is to preserve the Earth’s tropical rainforests by empowering the indigenous peoples who are its natural custodians, and to contribute to the creation of a new global vision of equity and sustainability for all.
The vision of the initiative is to generate widespread awakening at the grassroots level that leads to a transformation of peoples’ worldview, such that humanity becomes committed to restoring and protecting the environment and moves towards social justice and spiritual fulfillment.
