Humanity’s Destiny: Global Mind, Global Heart—Brian Swimme, PhD

Brian Swimme

The universe evolves in spurts. At the origin of time, there was only plasma, and then this plasma gave birth to galaxies. Since the origin of life, similar quantum leaps have taken place. For a long time there were only single-celled organisms, and then animals and plants sprouted forth. Swimme will share another transition underway, one in which human energies—having surrounded the entire world—are now challenged by a new destiny, whose purpose is the evocation of a vibrant Earth Community.


Music—Indigie Femme

Indigie Femme

This dynamic folk duo lavishes a compelling twist of world beats by tapping into their matrilineal indigenous roots.


Stories, Myths, and Legends about Making a Difference—Rachel Naomi Remen, MD

Rachel Remen

What if the world is not broken? What if fixing it is too small a strategy for making a difference? What if our power to make change is greater than the sum of our skills, our training, our education, our politics, or even our wealth? Prepare to encounter some of the world’s wisdom on change agentry and recognize your personal power to make a difference.
