Morning Speaker Session : Rachel Bagby // Barbara Marx Hubbard, Fredric Lehrman, John Robbins, Panel with Sheri Herndon. Focus—Your Participation (WEBCAST)

Speakers and Panel Discussion:

Barbara Marx Hubbard - We are honored to have Barbara Marx Hubbard join us on SKYPE to open The Gathering with a blessing and message of LOVE, all the way from Budapest! 

Fredric Lehrman - Education As Discovery - Standard education, as most of us experienced it. was an obstacle course that we were forced to push ourselves through. What if education could be simply a way of supporting our own innate curiosity and natural learning abilities? Where would that take us?

John Robbins - John will be joining us via SKYPE to share wisdom about the environmental, physical, mental and emotional impact of our food choices on both the individual and global scale.

MetaModerator
Rachel Bagby
- Chants of Your Lifetime: Give Your Voice to Life
- What happens when you engage a community in a sonorous dialogue about changing its narratives?  How do community narratives change and how does a community that practices embodying narratives informed by reverence for living systems change? Rachel Bagby will guide this inquiry in a plenary session that engages the whole audience in the chants of our lifetime.

Mental Techniques To Amplify Your Love with PJ Glassey

In this workshop, PJ will help us tune in the frequency of love using little known techniques including EFT, NLP & others, while clearing any blocks that might be present including unconscious blocks. This can even be used to address addictive behavior, which can be a block to full expression of love. We are all addicted to something. Some addictions are good, while others can block us from our health and fitness goals. Addictions can also keep us from attaining life goals and even stand in the way of our ability to truly love our self and others. PJ will teach quick and easy techniques, requiring very little time and effort to clear blocks, addictions and unhealthy behavior, both physically and mentally.

Dinner and Music: Featuring Theo Simms & Chief Sonne Reyna

Theo began writing songs and taking music seriously in 2005, 6years ago while in his first year of university. Since then he has spent this time developing a lively stage presence, writing bright original songs bursting with beautiful melodies and inspiring lyrics, and building an extensive repertoire of positive, popular cover tunes. His dream is to use music to inspire and support the global transformation to a life sustaining and just world that future generations can enjoy and thrive in. In his teens and early adulthood Theo fought with addictions and has learned to use this struggle as a context to grow from, to seek deeper meaning and experience of life, and become unstoppable in his pursuit of truth and purpose. The battles with extremes also inspired a desire to become a more balanced person, a well rounded musician and a successful visionary artist. Theo cherishes his idealism and puts it to practice by volunteering with organizations like Generation Waking Up. In April 2011 he and a group of 3 other facilitators, artists and organizers traveled around California inspiring and awakening youth to the global challenges humanity faces and to their personal power to take part in transforming our current crises in to brilliant opportunities. The goal all the way is to bring forth a sustainable, just and thriving global civilization. His genuine intentions and musical expressions touch people, bringing the heart’s perspective into focus, providing the space for unconditional love and appreciation for life and possibility to flourish. Theo loves to perform and has played everywhere from seedy dive bars to hot yoga studios. His music is ideal for anyone on a spiritual path with dreams of discovering and expressing their true self and co-creating a peaceful, thriving world. He loves to play at workshops, conferences, retreats, cruises, yoga studios, but can also thoroughly entertain birthday parties or large crowds at festivals. Music and performance is Theo’s gift, Theo’s love (the literal meaning for Theodore is God’s Love) and Theo’s true joy. He is eager to travel, singing about the new consciousness: a global family interconnected with the Earth and the Cosmos, and the truth of love and peace in our heart of hearts. He knows his dream of inspired smiling and dancing audiences all over the world will be a reality and if you are thinking of booking him you are making dreams come true.

Morning Speaker Session : Rachel Bagby & Mikki Willis // James Twyman, Mikki Willis, Sylvia Clute with Daniel Sunjata. Focus—Community Solutions (WEBCAST)

Daniel Sunjata - Film, theater and tv actor Daniel Sunjata will join us as moderator this weekend. Daniel's interest in humanity's potential for expanded understanding powerfully leads him to this event.

James Twyman - The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking - We have been told that peace is something that happens "by" us, or through seeing a problem and trying to solve it on our own. What if there's a new way of looking at peace, a way that allows it to move "through" us, solving the problems of violence and war from a very different perspective. The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking is the art of creating peace from the inside out. It is also the act of "becoming" the peace we want to see in the world.

Mikki Willis - Tragedy and Alchemy - My mission and company rose from the ashes of the World Trade Center. Since then, I've learned to turn every challenge to gold. 

Sylvia Clute - Justice As Love - During 28 years as a trial attorney I discovered that clients came to me with broken relationships and what I did made the wounds even deeper. There is another model of justice that restores relationships and leads to peace. I call this "unitive justice," to distinguish it from punitive justice. I will outline the moral, structural and historic differences between unitive and punitive justice and explain how unitive justice is readily at hand - no law degree required! It requires only that we choose to apply the simple principles of unitiive justice in our lives - the reward is peace.

Lunch and Music: Featuring Ester Nicholson & James Howard with Blessing by The Gratidude Brad Morris

Ester Nicholson is a licensed spiritual practitioner and inspirational recording artist who brings her personal experience of 24 years of sobriety coupled with a committed practice of spiritual principle to audiences around the globe  - with riveting keynotes, soul nurturing music, transformative workshops and heart connecting retreats.

For the past 17 years, she has studied under Michael Beckwith, founder of Agape International and featured teacher of The Secret.  Ester has also been a licensed member of the Agape International Spiritual Practitioner Core for 11 years.  A gifted vocal artist, she has completed two world tours with Rod Stewart, Bette Midler and others - in addition to appearing on such television shows as Oprah, The Tonight Show, The View and the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“Our community was so immensely moved by her performance that we continue to be asked about her return.  Ms. Nicholson has displayed a high degree of integrity, purpose, and faith. In addition to her excellent musical accomplishments, she has proven her ability to inspire people and reach out to the audience through her motivational talks and personal experience.  Ms. Nicholson would be a positive element to any event, and I am happy to give her my wholehearted endorsement.” - Bonnie Kleissle, MPH, CCPA, Administrative Director Blessing Hospital Cancer Program, Quincy, IL

Ester is currently facilitating workshops on Forgiveness, incorporating principles from Colin Tipping's Radical Forgiveness and 12 Steps of Recovery, sourced from Prosperity teachers such as Eric Butterworth, John Randolph Price and Abraham. As a teacher, she illustrates through her own personal struggle - and ultimate transcendence - over erroneous beliefs in lack and limitation.  Nicholson shares, “It has become very clear to me that a false sense of identity and the ignorance of our true nature are the only true blockage to our good.  The more those false beliefs are dissolved through an unwavering commitment to ‘know the truth that sets us free,’ the more we break through the hypnotic suggestion of lack and finally experience the glory and magnificence of the universe.”

Ester's personal struggles as a teenage mother, substance abuser, food addict, victim of domestic violence and her ultimate triumph over these adversities, place her in a unique and powerful position to relate to and inspire teens, youth and adult groups from all walks of life.

Whether she's speaking and sharing her music with churches, The United Way, The Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority or helping teens at a Catholic School in Yuma, Ester provides high-value tools and technologies touching hearts and minds with her deep commitment to making a significant contribution to the world.

Musical Performances & Celebration

Meet the "AFropolitans"

Derrick N. Ashong & Soulfège combine driving rhythms, authentic musicianship, the crisp harmonies of Ghana-born vocalist Derrick N. Ashong and co-founder Jonathan M. Gramling, with provocatively elevating lyrics, that transcend and defy even the most imaginative of descriptive capacities.

"…Soulfège’s members realized they have the platform to reach ears not only with their music-a fusion of thumping African music and rhythms, sweet reggae breezes, funk, and hip-hop-but also with their message.”
-The Boston Globe
