The pioneering Spiritual Ecology conference
Saturday 8th November 2014, 10am-5pm, Trinity Centre,
Trinity Road, Bristol BS2 0NW
Propelling the New Consciousness Revolution!
“The best conference I have ever been to.” Peter Owen Jones
“Our future is green and the FutureNow conference was a wonderful event to remind people that unless we bring ecology and spirituality together, there is no future. We need this kind of event on a regular basis in Bristol, the Green Capital of Europe 2015, to bring greater awareness of green issues to the city.” Satish Kumar, Editor-in-Chief of Resurgence & Ecologist
Conscious Frontiers presented Future NOW, a one-day conference and charity fundraiser organised by Will Gethin and Joe Hoare at the Trinity Centre on Saturday 8th November 2014 exploring the urgent solutions and mindful steps needed to sustain the Earth so we can secure bright, happy and sustainable future lives for our children and grandchildren on this planet.
Featuring groundbreaking presentations, powerful performances and interactive breakout sessions with leading eco and spiritual pioneers Satish Kumar, Peter Owen Jones, Tim Freke, Chloe Goodchild and Joe Hoare – interspersed with sacred sounds and chants – Future NOW called for an Inner Revolution. It was a call to become more mindful, more peaceful, more connected and more loving to ourselves, to each other and to the Earth. It urged us to change our “Descartes” inherited philosophical perspective of ourselves as separate from each other and the Earth and embrace our interconnectedness. It called for us to grow beyond the selfish drives of our materialistic society and create a new way – moving from self interest to mutual interest, reciprocity and interdependence. The conference was held in partnership with Bristol’s Big Green Week.
Throughout the day, conference participants were invited to explore how we can each make a difference and take urgent action to be the change in our daily lives, breakout discussion sessions continuously echoing and reflecting on the question, “What am I going to do differently?” Future NOW is an invitation to have a voice, to help shape our collective future and to take an active role in propagating the New Consciousness Revolution.
50% of the proceeds from Future NOW were donated to the following benevolent charities/causes of the keynote speakers:
