THIS IS OUR HOUSE.

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.

WHAT TO EXPECT


WHAT TO EXPECT


what to expect

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.

Daily Practice

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.

Community Building

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.
