Symposium Sponsored by Sustainable Solano Examines Link Between Justice, Sustainability, and Spirituality
On December 3, 2016, Sustainable Solano offers a special opportunity for all to join the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium at the Solano County Events Center, 601 Texas Street in Fairfield from 10AM – 2PM.
As a first conversation of its kind in Solano County, the purpose of this FREE Symposium is to help individuals tap into their highest potential for creating a thriving, just, and sustainable world.
The Symposium is designed to engage participants in a dynamic, half-day multimedia workshop that will explore three core aspects of our societal condition via facilitated interaction and engaging audio-visual elements. Attendees will engage as co-creators of an environmentally sustainable, socially just, and spiritually fulfilling world, in our own communities. “We are launching this new county-wide effort to empower all members of our community to take a stand for positive change and together create a better world that works for all of us by taking actions for the good of the whole”, says Elena Karoulina, Executive Director of Sustainable Solano.
After grounding awareness in facts regarding the consequences of humanity’s current relationship with Earth and each other, participants will examine how humanity arrived at this point. Through a process of guided self-inquiry, individuals discover the unique stand they wish to take for a more just, sustainable, and fulfilling world. Participants have the opportunity to share their concerns about the state of the world with like-minded community members and support each other in taking steps to affect the changes they wish to see.
Sustainable Solano invites everyone to join the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium and wake up from the “dream that guides the modern world”, establish new connections and join those committed realizing a human presence on this planet that exists in equilibrium, rather than imbalance, with Mother Earth. Participants will leave the Symposium feeling optimistic, inspired and empowered to take clear steps to embody their vision for a better world and create a new dream for humanity.

The Awakening the Dreamer Symposium is developed and distributed by The Pachamama Alliance, a San Francisco-based nonprofit working to create a world that works for everyone- awakening a New Dream for humanity. Through the Symposium and other workshops, they work to generate widespread awakening at the grassroots level and a transformation of our worldview, such that humanity becomes committed to restoring and protecting the environment and moves towards social justice and spiritual fulfillment.
Currently, over 3,700 volunteer Facilitators have delivered the Symposium in 71 countries. It has been presented in 12 languages and reached at least 100,000 people, generating countless community projects and individual change. “Pachamama is a phenomenal organization. They have created a wonderful training to get people engaged in making a difference. Everyone should go through their Awakening the Dreamer workshop. I’ve met great people who are highly committed, smart and who take action.”
