Awakening the Dreamer; Changing the Dream

Awakening the Dreamer; Changing the Dream will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 31, at The Center. The symposium is hosted by Clare Oaks and The Center, located at 801 Carillon Drive in Bartlett, IL.

Where on Earth are we going? And what can we do about it?

These are two of the many questions that will be discussed during the event, said Sr. Ruth Baggech, director of The Center.

Experience an inspiring exploration into the links among the three facets of a new dream for humanity and the planet Earth—environmental sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. Together we will go on a journey of planetary inquiry into whatÂ’s possible for the future.

The symposium combines leading-edge information, live presentation, animated facilitation, video clips and group interaction. Participants will come away with new and deeper levels of both awareness and readiness for effective action with a profound sense of hope and purpose.
