Celebrate With Us

Loren Cole, one of the group of cofounders of the original Earth Day in 1970, will share a retrospective of the passion that fueled the early years of Earth Day. And in sharing with us the hopes and dreams of the cofounders, will bring us up to date as to where those early hopes and dreams have taken us today…44 years later.

The Sage

Loren Cole, PHD, Earth Day Cofounding Group

Connie Grauds, after 20 years of apprenticeship in Amazonian shamanism, will share how shamanic states can lift us up to a state of enchantment, charm and magic…where everything is spirited and connected. A sense of connection helps us evolve from a mechanistic-reductionist worldview to a systems worldview. A systems worldview gives us the opportunity to co-create our future together in right-relationship.
