The First Invitation


"Be the Change You Want to See in the World."- Gandhi

What does a conversation of "oneness" look like? We stand inside a new paradigm that is not problem focused, but focused on being relational, creating new futures from our deepest commitments.
You are invited to a conversation unlike any other you have ever had- it is a conversation to know yourself and others within your community for your deepest commitment to the world. The root question for the conversation you are invited to is: Who are you being for the world?

~~The conversation has three parts~~

ONE: Gathering prior to the DNC, with a short address by Desmond Tutu (unconfirmed), where you and each participant will have the opportunity to answer the question "Who are you for the world?" Your answer and your listening to others creates a relatedness - you will be known and know others for our commitments to the world. If you choose to use words, we suggest you crystallize your statement in a clear few words that captures your essence so you are remembered (max 1 minute each person). Location: St. Cajetans, Auraria CampusDates and Times: Wednesday July 2, 7-9 pm & Tuesday July 8, 7-9 pm
TWO: A Commitment, Gifts and Accountability Celebration- Music, dance, food, artistic expression of our commitments- maybe on balloons, silk flags, t-shirts, a piece of paper in a time capsule. Location, time date TBA- during the DNC
THREE: A Commitment, Gifts and Accountability Parade- A time capsule of commitments leads waves of people, colorful balloons, silk flags, t-shirts meeting Obama and the DNC to share our commitments. Location, time, date TBA- during DNC.
This event will be covered internationally and symbolize the time for honoring one another and fulfilling on our deepest commitments to the world has come.

We would be honored to have your participation
