Be The Change

co-creating transformational community & culture


Be The Change gatherings grew out of our desire to come together with others who are also passionate about making a difference in the world through engaging and embodying three levels of transformation – personal, community, and systemic. The gatherings provide hands-on exploration of personal and collective transformation practices, and support the forming and deepening of interdependent community.

Be The Change is:

  • a laboratory for transformational learning and collective empowerment
  • a call to embody your vocation in service to a world that works for all life
  • a celebration of the joy, creativity, and liberation of living authenticity
Together, we embody and integrate a range of approaches and practices for whole-person and whole-system transformation, including:

Personal / Inner Transformation

  • Deepening Self-Connection and Self-Empowerment
  • Clarifying Life Purpose and Vision
  • Internal Family Systems Therapy
