Workshop on Feb 13: Awakening the Dreamer
The Greening Greenfield Energy Committee is bringing an internationally-renowned workshop to Greenfield called Awakening the Dreamer & Changing the Dream. It will be presented on Saturday, February 19, 1-5 pm at the Second Congregational Church next to the Town Hall. Registration will begin at 12:30 pm.
The Awakening the Dreamer workshop was created by the Pachamama Alliance, which was inspired by the deep concern indigenous Ecuadorian elders and shamans expressed about the destruction of their rain forest and their way of life.
“The world often feels like it is spinning ever faster toward disaster through climate change, warfare, disease, famine and financial meltdown,” said Becca King, Greening Greenfield Energy Committee co-chair and organizer of the workshop. “It would not be unreasonable to react with denial or despair, and yet these challenges have also born a tremendously exciting movement – the largest social movement in history – to build a more just, spiritually fulfilling, and sustainable life for all.”
Through videos of inspiring indigenous leaders, activists, philosophers, and scientists from around the world and dynamic discussions around key questions, the workshop will help participants awaken from the seductive trance of unlimited progress, private interest and unrestrained growth and material accumulation and help us reconnect with the earth and reclaim our future.
“If you are ready to be disturbed, inspired and moved to action,” says Ms King, “please join us and discover new opportunities to make a real difference in accelerating the emergence of a new worldview.”
The Awakening the Dreamer & Changing the Dream workshop is being brought to Greenfield by the Greening Greenfield Energy Committee (GGEC), co-creator of the Greening Greenfield campaign. The campaign aims to use “greening” as the inspirational and economic engine to build a sustainable Greenfield so that current and future generations can enjoy life in this beautiful abundant valley. Pre-registration at www.GreeningGreenfield.org is encouraged but not required. A $10 donation is suggested, but no one will be turned away.
