We are facing profound hardships in this country - from poverty to gun violence, unemployment to corruption. People are struggling to survive much less be well. How we show up in these midterms elections will define who we are as a community and a country. We need to come together now more than ever. CTZN Summit is reimagining civic engagement as collective care. Through movement and meditation, storytelling and creative collaboration, participants will explore the "practice of politics" and what it looks like to take care of ourselves and the whole of society.
We understand that "there can be no social change without inner change" (Rev angel Kyodo williams). So we are designing an experience that builds leadership and capacity to confront the critical issues of our time including facilitating across difference, relational organizing, race equity training, voter mobilization and more. Throughout the weekend, we will be inspired by thought leaders to help us bridge our personal practice with collective wellbeing. And we will co-create new, authentic pathways for collaboration and innovation that transform our country from the inside out.
Through shared practice, we reclaim our inner power and our capacity to be authentic, resilient and relational in action. It is how we come together in shared values and action.
We are bringing together spiritual activists, front line leaders and cultural creatives to inspire innovation and ignite collective action. We will hear from thought leaders like Marianne Williamson, Rev angel Kyodo williams, Seane Corn and others .
Our journey together will be nourished by the Art of Living Wellness Center located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The space has everything we need to replenish the body, mind and soul and prepare ourselves for the work ahead.
We build community that shares a commitment to understanding and transforming systemic injustice and separation, and is empowered to act and aggregate our shared power for good. Real change is sourced by people power, not from the top-down.

Throughout the weekend we will be supported through art and radical expression as we co-create new ideas and visions for who we want to be in America.
