Produced by Evolver Bay Area [http://evolverbayarea.com/]
Welcome to HiveMind, where you can learn with hands-on workshops and talks, connect with like-minded people, receive healing and nutrition, art, dance, and be.
HiveMind provides a forum for networking and coalition-building in the Bay, expanding the impact of holistic solutions.
Several organizations will be present to share their work and build community. Our intention is to bring people together around the convergence of technology, healing, arts, local economy, and sustainable farming. Through gathering together and sharing with each other, we build a strong collective action network in the Bay Area and celebrate the brilliance and passion of Evolver community.
Evolver is for Evolving consciousness, individually and in collaboration. We look forward to waking up with you.
"What we require is a trans-local movement of civil society, on a global scale, where people come together in local communities to address the complete scope of our situation in "living learning laboratories," sharing the best practices and techniques for re-localizing basic production of goods, foodstuffs, and energy. We need a movement away from the industrial-age ideals of growth, toward "slow living," toward enhancing the quality of life, and an equitable sharing of resources on a planetary scale.
The Evolver Network provides a prototype for a self-organizing social movement that meshes together local communities who are creating an alternative model for future society, which we call "The New Planetary Culture." -Daniel Pinchbeck, Evolver Co-Founder and Executive Director
