Who should come?

We welcome all Australian participants, facilitators, leaders and game changers of Be the Change/ Pachamama Alliance programs… along with friends and colleagues from other communities to join us.

Nine years ago the first Awakening the Dreamer symposium was held in Australia. Since then thousands of people have attended our programs and hundreds have trained as facilitators. Our intention throughout has been to contribute to the emergence of a new future, a vision of an environmentally sustainable, socially just and spiritually fulfilling human presence on the planet.

The purpose of the gathering is to come together to envision our next phase. We will embrace the connection of all things, combine structured activities and Open Space to see what emerges. You are invited to propose Open Space activities here. At the close of each day we will harvest the outcomes for going forward with our next phase. We look forward to you joining us.
