"Awakening The Dreamer" Symposium 

Welcome to Awakening the Dreamer, a transformative educational program that explores the challenges facing humanity at this critical moment in time and the opportunities we as a human family have to create a new future. RSVP http://www.pachamama.org/workshop/3185/Awakening%20the%20Dreamer%20Symposium

A TRANSFORMATIVE PERSONAL JOURNEY
 In Awakening the Dreamer, you'll look squarely at the state of the world—where we are and
 how we got here—and then explore what role you can play in bringing forth an environmentally
 sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet.
•••Changing the Dream
   Awakening the Dreamer was created in response to an invitation from the Achuar people of the
   Ecuadorian Amazon to work in partnership to shift the dominant culture of consumption and
   alienation to one that honors and sustains all life. 
•••Where Are We?
   You'll start with an examination of the ways in which the current "dream" of the modern world
   is impacting the environment, our relationship with one another, and our own sense of purpose.
•••How Did We Get Here?
   You will explore how this all came to be, and confront the powerful unexamined assumptions
   that are at the heart of the current crisis we are in—as a species and as a planet.
•••A New Story
   You’ll hear about the new story emerging at this time in history—a story that recognizes
   how profoundly connected everyone and everything is.
•••What is Possible Now?
   You will come to see that a new future is possible and that a huge, unstoppable movement
   is already emerging and in action, committed to creating a new story for humanity.

LunchTime "Practical QiGong" - Phillip "Pete" Starr

QiGoing is a holistic system of coordinated body postures and movement,
 breathing, and meditation used for health, spirituality, and martial arts training.

Benefits of practicing QiGong
Increase your internal and external strength!
* With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts,
qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (pronounced "chee") or what has been translated as "life energy".
* According to Taoist philosophy, respectively, qigong allows access to higher realms of awareness, awakens one's "true nature", and helps develop human potential. 
* Qigong practice typically involves moving meditation, coordinating slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and calm meditative state of mind. 
* Qigong is now practiced throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise, relaxation, health maintenance, self-healing, and training for certain martial arts.
