This one-day workshop is for aspiring entrepreneurs or anyone who wants to find their deeper meaning and purpose, becoming a leader and contributing the world in a positive way.
World Cafe (Knowledge Cafe): 9:00-12:00
The World Cafe is a group activity that fosters philosophical thinking, critical thinking and harvesting the collective wisdom of community centered around how we feel we can solve some of the biggest world issues. The World Cafe engages people in conversations around questions that matter in their organizations or communities. This is a simple yet powerful methodology for accessing the collective intelligence of any group. Participants share their ideas and hear the ideas of others through rounds of purposeful conversations that create shared meaning thus building community and collaboration.
Break/Lunch/Movement Session 12:00-1:00
This is exercise has 2 parts. Part one is a guided meditation that will bring about a flow-of-consciousness of inspiration, ideas and visions about your dream and vision. It is a natural process of which boundaries and limitations are non-existent. Part two, brings your flow-of-consciousness into a structure. It is a grounding activity that puts your ethereal visions into a comprehensible idea that can be taken to the next level.

We will also open the floor to discussion and questions regarding particular visions and ideas.Regardless if you have a vision or idea NOW, this workshop will be helpful for anyone who wants to open doors to new communities and new opportunities.
Conscious Networking: 4pm-6pm
This portion of dream-activation will be open to the public. This is a huge opportunity for synchronistic conversations, an opportunity to connect with your community and learn about new ideas, projects and share.
