I picture a beautiful home, living in mutual trust and reciprocity with others. I picture an intergenerational community, where olders and youngers learn from and nourish each other. I picture natural beauty surrounding him, the arising and passing of each season honoured through ritual. I picture his understanding that love is an infinite well of power, when wielded skillfully in service to life.
I allow this vision to linger in my heart, before it dissipates. I open my eyes and see my son watching my face intently, before erupting into a pure giggle.
There's much to be done. But for now, we watch the snow drift from heaven to earth together, for the first time.

THE ART OF CROWDFUNDING FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
In case you missed it - my new workshop is now online. Many students have registered and are working toward funding their dream. The course is offered via two options: 1) Flat Rate or 2) the spirit of the Gift. This means I don't tell you how much the course is worth. You'll be invited to gift any amount at the end.

IMAGINE CONVERGENCE - MARCH 21-24, 2019
I'm very excited to be heading to this gathering coming up in late March on Orcas Island. Having been to numerous other events put on by some of the organizers (Imagine Festival, Revival Gathering) this is the latest iteration in unlocking the power of emergence.
Key visionaries and activists will be in attendance, from Paul Stamets, to Charles Eisenstein and Julia Butterfly Hill - along with musicians Yaima and many others. Beyond the typical "keynotes" - I've appreciated how much the organizers have attempted to break down the typical 'conference' format, and allow for real connection and possibility to flourish.
When we can all bring our gifts in service toward a shared vision for a regenerative future... that's when the magic happens.
