The Great Turning

Our bi-annual Spring gathering, called “The Great Turning,” is an unforgettable “un-conference” that brings activated citizens together in solutions-based dialogue and celebration. The day is structured around a series of circle-based “Turning Talks” by impassioned community leaders, a feast of bio-regional organic food, and a musical festival celebrating human diversity, connection, and consciousness.

As Paul Hawken assures us, we are in the midst of the largest social change movement in history, and it’s important to convene community gatherings where we can feel the quickening underway and experience the excitement and promise of what Joanna Macy calls "The Great Turning” – the shift from an industrial growth society to a life-sustaining civilization for which the event is named.

Stay tuned for more information on the next Great Turning as it becomes available. In the meantime, please contact us if you would like some guidance on how to create this collaborative experience in your own community!
