AWAKENING THE DREAMER; CHANGING THE DREAM SYMPOSIUM
From the indigenous people of the Amazon in Ecuador has come a world wide movement to bring forth an ecologically sustainable, socially just and spiritually fulfilling human presence on this planet. It is called Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream, and in this time of deepening global crisis it is the most comprehensive undertaking I have come across in over 30 years of activism in peace, justice and environment. From a 3 hour workshop participants leave feeling empowered to take action when they had felt only despair. Go to www.pachamama.org to see the breadth and depth of this initiative. A youth version is called Generation Waking Up www.genup.net for high school and young adults.
Unify Toronto Dialogues invites you to series that will inform, empower, and help equip you to play your part in bringing the next society into being.
This moment in history is unique. We're the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, mass species extinction, peak oil, and global economic crisis, not to mention the nuclear age. And we're the last generation that can do something about the mess the industrial age has left us in.
Luckily, the study of evolution shows us that species can make transformative adaptations when faced with a crisis. So, this is the time to write a new story of what is possible for humans, and we are the people to do it.
Here's an alternative to denial, overwhelm or despair: join us for this series. In supportive community, let's admit we've never been here before and don't know what to do. From that fertile place of humility, let's listen together for practical and collaborative ways forward.
6:30 - 9:00 pm on these Monday evenings: - Sept. 29 (College & Spadina), Oct 27 & Nov 17 (St. George & Bloor)

AWAKENING THE WARRIOR SPIRIT Slay Resistance! Move Powerfully into Uncertainty! The Spirit of the Warrior is not inherently about violence. Rather it is about selfless action that gets results - results that benefit a community, a team or an organization. It is an essential archetypical energy that is sometimes discounted in today’s view of servant leadership or stewardship. Imagine the energy of the “Shambala Warrior” as explored by and advocated by Joanna Macy, one of the most compassionate human beings on the planet, combined with the courage of Gandhi facing the British soldiers when he marched to the sea.
Included in the format of the Saturday and Sunday workshop is “The Samurai Game®” an experience created by George Leonard, a pioneer in the human potential movement. The Samurai Game® and workshop will be led by Scott Coady, founder of the Institute for Embodied Wisdom. Scott is one of a handful of people in the United States, authorized by the George Leonard Foundation to facilitate The Samurai Game®. For more information go to the website. Saturday, November 15th (9am - 8:30pm) & Sunday November 16th (10am - 5pm) Toronto Steelworkers Meeting Hall, 25 Cecil St, Toronto ON M5T 1N1 Canada MAP
