(Awakening the Dreamer) --
Dr. Lawrence Cottle, a local chiropractor, committed environmentalist, and new Sierra Club member, is a trained volunteer facilitator for the Symposium “Awakening the Dreamer,” and will give an informative overview of this dramatic and uplifting program, along with an accompanying six-minute film. He notes that this unique presentation’s purpose is “…to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet as the guiding principle of our time.” The Symposium is thus a program designed to put the participant in a state of “blessed unrest,” to awaken him or her from the dream of the Modern World, and to take action to help improve our global environmental predicament. Through the Symposium experience it is hoped that you will learn how to become more motivated and inspired to make a real difference in recreating a better world, starting in 2011.
