Community Conversations: Intergenerational Partnerships for The Great Turning with Joanna Macy & MaMuse

At Bioneers we have an amazing community – discerning, engaged, committed and reflective. These Community Conversations are an opportunity for us to come together around key topics to talk about what has real meaning and value to us. Stimulated by a brief ‘keynote’, or “conversation starter”, and captured by a creative ’synthesis’ from talented young spoken word artists, these community conversations offer a place to bring your best thinking forward in creative and innovative ways. Join us, and weave your heart, mind, and voice into the collective braid!

How can we work inter-generationally to usher in “The Great Turning” toward a life-sustaining society? Come join conversations about how we can be “wiser together” and collaborate across the cycle of life to shape our shared future.  With: With ‘conversation starter’ video from Joanna Macy, world renowned thinker, activist, Bioneers elder, author, and seed teacher of “The Work That Reconnects;” Amy Lenzo, weDialogue and the World Cafe Community Foundation; David Shaw, Santa Cruz Permaculture & UCSC Right Livelihood College; and MaMuse (Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker), a beloved roots music duet, will serve as “harvesters” for the session, i.e. summing up the proceedings in improvised poetry and music.
