Welcome to the global gathering of cultural and wellness centers working together for the development of a more conscious and ecological world.

The light of possibility is emerging after a grave, pandemic-filled year. This has had a profound effect on the activities of our holistic centers - some have closed temporarily, some have shifted online, others are uncertain how to proceed.

In all cases, we face unique opportunities to emerge with greater resilience in a post-pandemic world that illuminates present day challenges. Join us as we share experience, discover new opportunities, and initiate a brighter future ~ together.

Join us in Strengthening the Network

This year we build upon the strength of the network, developed over 35 years of annual gatherings and reach out beyond. We have invited three guest speakers to offer their perspectives on our global predicament and address how centers such as ours can be most relevant, effective and impactful.

We will be joined by anthropologist, writer and visionary, Wade Davis, law professor and author of The Inner Work of Racial Justice, Rhonda Magee, and climate activist and leading environmental thinker, Bill McKibben. This amazing trio will help deepen the conversation between us over the four days and identify the most significant issues our centers can address, sewing seeds for our ongoing work throughout the year.

Meet the speakers

Building Resilience, Together

We'll meet each other in a spirit of warmth, openness, candor and conviviality to share knowledge, best practices and creative solutions learned and refined over the last year.

Throughout the Gathering we’ll hear from friends and colleagues in the network with a myriad of opportunities for interaction. Begin each day with a wisdom practice offered by one of the Spiritual Lineage Centers. Enjoy an interactive session morning and afternoon. Close each day with Heart and Soul Happy Hour.

If you miss a talk, we’ll have all the day time sessions recorded for you to access later. The Gathering is a rich opportunity for your staff to benefit from the depth of learning and feel part of the network. We look forward to connecting with you.
