In this time of uncertainty where life itself is threatened by climate change, peak oil, pandemics, war and economic precariousness, we see how incredibly interconnected and interdependent we all are in our communities and in the world. Also, we see that a way into the future relies in changing ourselves, building stronger local communities and adopting life practices that are life-sustaining.
We feel there is a need to come together to connect, reflect, and dream of new ways to build inclusive, creative, sustainable, and regenerative communities not only to respond to the growing crisis facing us today, but in preparation for future crises to come. This time presents a precious opportunity to dream and act with reverence and a deeper understanding of each other and the world. Now is the time to create the change we want to see in the world. Dragon Dreaming is one methodology that offers tools to make that happen!
We call the shift from the Industrial Growth Society to a life-sustaining civilization, the Great Turning. We are also afraid that we, humanity, might have missed the time to do this change and we might be heading to a dark night of the globe. Either way, we believe that whatever challenge we may have ahead of us, it will be better faced as a community.
