PANEL PRESENTATION
Sunday Day Pass Required




Hosted by Cary Harrison 


Sunday, February 12     2:30 pm - 4:30 pm    

Room: Plaza Ballroom






     In these ever-changing and unpredictable times, we realize that old paradigms no longer serve us. We find ourselves looking inward to reflect on how we can live our lives in truth and find peace in turmoil. We look around and find more and more people on the planet dedicating their lives -- through action, initiation, ignition and leadership - seeking outside-the-box solutions to sustain our lives on the planet.


     These dedicated emissaries of change include: Vandana Shiva, John Perkins, Greg Palast, Barbara Marx Hubbard and Q'Orianka Kilcher.  Radio show host, Cary Harrison will be moderating this illuminating discussion. These sacred activists have traveled the Earth sharing their heart and soul, their talents and skills, each in their own field of expertise. They each have personally delved deep into all sides of core injustices that threaten humanity and our ecosystem.


     Join us for a stimulating discussion on strategies to help regenerate new systems for our sacred world. We also can look into our own lives, reflecting as to how we can all contribute individually and collectively to participate in the transformation of the world.
