Immerse yourself in an unforgettable exploration of spirituality and action

with Theodore Richards,  author of 

The Great Re-imagining: Spirituality in an Age of Apocalypse


We have reached a transformative and revelatory moment in human history. The old stories that once told us who we were and gave us our sense of place in the world, no longer hold.

Something new is emerging even as we grapple with a sense that things are falling apart.


With contemporary science and the teachings of the prophets and mystics of the world’s wisdom traditions as our guides, join us to engage in a process of shared inquiry into our current political and cultural landscape.

Drawing from ancient apocalyptic tradition, awaken to the shift in consciousness that corresponds to the contemporary global climate crisis, reimagining the notion of apocalypse to refer to the end of an old cosmology and the emergence of a new one.


To bring forth a more just, sustainable and joyful world, we must transform our stories. Explore the new story that is emerging at this crucial moment in human history.


Join us as we take a step together, envisioning new stories that support systemic change and empower us to bring ideas into action. 

Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. 

- Barack Obama
