The Power of Dreams and Their Impact on Our World
This event is co-sponsored with The Pachamama Alliance.



Some Questions We'll Consider ...

Indigenous people around the world value dreaming far more than the industrialized West appears to do. For some tribes in the Amazon, the "dream of the north" - the industrialized nations' quest for perpetual growth, short term gratification and voracious consumption - is destroying their land, their traditions and along with it, their wisdom.



How is it that the north has become so desensitized, so asleep that we no longer dream creatively, losing access to cultural vitality, with devastating results? What will it take to rekindle honor for the wisdom of dreaming in the culture of the north? What is in the way of awakening this dreamer? Shall we, rather than destroying the planet, create collectively a new "dream of the north", one that allows for sustainable life for everyone?
