"I think [The Pachamama Alliance] is the most important single NGO in the world right now because it's changing the one thing that can change everything and that's our minds and our hearts. And that changes everything."
"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
Whether it's due to our cynicism, our sense of hopelessness, or a society that's good at putting us to sleep, too few of us are engaged in making a difference as citizens on issues like poverty, peace, and climate change. That's where The Pachamama Alliance's work is so vitally important. Their programs feed these movements by waking us up, helping us get back in touch with our desire to make a difference, and bringing us back onto the playing field and into action." — Sam Daley-Harris, Founder of Results and Author of "Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break Between People and Government"
