Friday evening Lecture Description
In this lecture participants will learn about “The Global Dream Initiative.” This advocacy calls for a recognition of the trauma in the natural and urban landscapes along with the need to participate in their healing. Here we discover that the world’s suffering appears, in the living images of people’s dreams. Simply said, ‘people can become depressed because nature is depressed’.
The Global Dream Initiative develops a forum to see and hear the world’s dreams. We also will learn how to begin utilizing these dreams to create new and more generative methods of attending to the growing perils facing nature. New ways of engagement that are not trapped in the cultural, political, economic, and environmental approaches that now are failing us will be presented. This is a model for community as well as planetary activism. In this lecture the “call to action” emerges from the dreaming psyche and is in service to the landscapes we hold dear.
