* Introduce an emerging new story that sees life as profoundly interconnected
* Connect participants with a growing worldwide movement committed to bringing forth better futures for all
* Leave participants energised and inspired, ready to step into action
* Have the inspirational co-founder of Pachamama Alliance, John Perkins, opening the workshop, participating and sharing his global wisdom

~ An event that will revolutionise our relationship with plants ~
Our disconnect from the natural world has led to the disastrous situation that we now find ourselves in on planet Earth, yet our deep feelings for nature form part of our spiritual longing. Plant Consciousness will demonstrate in dynamic ways, how at both the microcosm and macrocosm levels we can re-establish that connection to nature and why it is essential for the development of consciousness and the well-being of the planet that we do.
We can learn so much from the inherent qualities of the plant kingdom and if we look even closer, from the intelligence that lies behind it. Bringing together the values of plant neurobiology, permaculture, deep-ecology, eco-psychology, shamanism and herbalism you will discover a deeper understanding of and a new harmony with plants and with your place in the biosphere of life on this planet.

The Universe Story is the story as revealed by science, from the origins of the Universe 13.8 billion years ago, through the creation of the stars, planets, our planet Earth, the evolution of life and finally our human story on this Earth.
During the day we will hear this amazing story from start to finish. And we will see how we can align ourselves with the evolutionary processes for the benefit of all humans, all living beings and the planet itself. And finally we will hear ways in which we can be empowered to ground the ideas in our everyday lives and to help bring into being the 'Ecozoic Era'.
