"The Awakening the Dreamer Symposium is one of the most powerful calls to action I have ever experienced. It combines science, ethics, art and culture in a profound and moving way, reminding us of what it really means to be fully alive and fully awake." - David Cobb, Move to Amend
The Awakening the Dreamer Symposium is the realization of one of my greatest dreams. Nearly 3 decades ago, Amazonian shamans told me 'the world is as you dream it; your people's dream of materialism has become a nightmare — change it.' The Symposium is doing that. All over the globe Pachamama Alliance is inspiring dreamers to dream a dream that will make future generations proud and empowering them to take actions to manifest this new dream. - John Perkins, Best-selling author, Co-Founder, The Pachamama Alliance
For a long time I have been aware of the need for a worldwide cultural change in thought and priorities; the videos I had the privilege to watch [in the Symposium] showed exactly what I had already been seeing and made all the sense in the world." - Maria del Corral, Bogota, Colombia
At a time when I felt only despair about the conditions I saw in the world, the Symposium provided me with a new way of seeing things, with hope and with inspiration. It neatly organized all the things I cared about most into three easily manageable categories, and gave me a framework and language for communicating my concerns and for understanding what I could do to make a difference." - Holly Hartman, Philadelphia USA
The approach is manageable and doesn't require 'competitive' knowledge! There is a realistic approach and expectation, and its affirming of my own views." - Elaine Winchester, Wellington, New Zealand
Over the course of my life I have seen my passion for social justice, health, environment and spirituality as separate. The Symposium brought each these together and I was able to integrate them and begin to understand why each of those has been so essential in my life." - Alyssa Brown, Burlington, Vermont USA
