We are in the midst of the greatest breakthrough in civilization and are now experiencing the most massive systemic shifts that humankind has known. What appear as disruptions may in fact be a call to response at an entirely new level of participation. Voices and opinions that in the past were silent are now compelled into expression, and witnesses to history are now finding themselves making history.
Though old outmoded ways of being seek to restrain us, we know that there is no going backwards. The tremendous challenges are demanding, but so are the radical new possibilities that await us.
In this potent and profound day of training, Dr. Jean Houston, Chancellor of Meridian University, author, philosopher, past advisor for the United Nations, and national and international speaker on social change, will help you develop new, critical tools for building a culture of values, principle, integrity and vision for our collective future. We will explore the underlying principles of personal and collective power, the keys for dealing with adversity and the powerful methods of creating lasting change.
Such radical and exhilarating education leads us to lives of sacred purpose, passionate vocation and the ability to follow through with vision and conviction. This is a time unlike any before where you are called to be the change that makes the change.
