Special Event: LIVING IN THE FIRE OF CHANGE

Boise IONS is helping sponsor a special event  “LIVING IN THE FIRE OF CHANGE: SACRED ACTIVISM & SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION”  JUNE 12th & 13th, EGYPTIAN THEATRE

——————————————————————–

A Conference and Community Forum featuring former Amnesty International President and US representative to the UN James O’Dea; Scholar, Author and Founder of the Institute for Sacred Activism Andrew Harvey; President, the Foundation for Conscious Evolution Barbara Marx Hubbard; Former Green Beret and Native American Elder and wisdom keeper Sequoyah Trueblood; and LOCAL LEADERS Jayne Sorrels of Interfaith Sanctuary; Leslye Moore of International Rescue Committee; Mark Ickes of Think Boise First!; and one other very special local leader TBA.

The mission of this event is to address the challenging times we are currently experiencing with parameters for understanding core issues and taking viable action as individuals, community, and as a whole. Activism that is from the heart could be termed “Sacred Activism”—and thus it is beyond any secular intonation. “Living in the Fire of Change” is a bridge for the Treasure Valley community to come and take part in a solid and inspiring discussion, and to have opportunities to pose questions to globally known leaders in their fields.

This event will also highlight local nonprofits and invite audience discussion, as well as profound keynotes on social justice, activism, and understanding our challenging times. Saturday afternoon features a Panel discussion combining the national leaders with our local leaders: “Where do we go from here and how do we take viable action as individuals to help our community” will be one of the panel topics.

This event closes with a “CALL TO SERVICE/CALL TO ACTION” and will highlight local organizations Sustainable Futures, Interfaith Sanctuary, IRC, and others TBA to allow audience and greater community to get involved with specific volunteer opportunities.
