Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am co-leading the upcoming June 18th Awakening the Dreamer Symposium at St. Joan of Arc and would be honored if you would join us there. (see attached flyer) Also, if June 18 does not work for you, we have a smaller event scheduled on June 4 (same time; also at St. Joan of Arc) If you would like to help us out as a volunteer at either event, please contact Holly Einess at: [email protected] If you have any other questions about the global Awakening the Dreamer movement or the events on June 4 and 18, please contact me at [email protected] or 612-408-8898. Lastly, contact me if you would like to bring any length version of the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium to your business, community organization, house of worship or school. Love and Peace, Joel

The purpose of the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium is to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just human presence on this planet.

DualCurrency Systems has partnered with Heartland, Inc. to create The Symposium Network (501c3). Our first effort is the design, delivery and promotion of the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium. We have incorporated design principles and tools from Heartland’s work in convening authentic conversations. I encourage you to pick up and read their new book entitled, The Art of Convening. Below is an endorsement of their book by Lynne Twist who has played a prominent role in the creation and worldwide spread of the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium. Joel Hodroff

I wholeheartedly endorse Craig and Patricia Neal’s brilliant new book, The Art of Convening. Their clear, compassionate articulation of the “technology of relationships” opens the door for authentic engagement in any encounter—personal or professional. The Art of Convening contributes a potent, holistic process for each conversation to be truly transformative. I stand with the authors in knowing that “this is a good time to be alive.” Their new book enriches life for us all.
