CTZN Summit

August 23 - 26, 2019 (Thurs - Sun)
The Art of Living Retreat Center
Boone, NC

CTZN Summit is a unique gathering of thought leaders, change makers, political and spiritual warriors coming together to dig deep, get organized and take back our power. The experience is designed to create a shared practice, political context and capacity building for getting organized and coordinating our efforts around this coming election. Our goal is to ready and resource local leaders to be more effective allies to local organizations and frontline communities who are mobilizing for midterms. That support will continue post-summit through the election.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Resilience practice (yoga, meditation, hiking)
  • Political context
  • Race equity and solidarity training
  • Courageous conversations
  • Deep canvassing orientation
  • Mapping and organizing
  • Relationship building
  • Next steps for local activation

CTZN SUMMIT is bringing together those of us who know we can and must do better — For ourselves, for our communities, and for our society.  We are yogis, meditators, and conscious citizens who are concerned about the wellbeing of our people and planet, and are ready to act in the name of love and justice.  At the same time, we will learn from leading community organizers to cultivate skills like story-sharing, community building, and deep canvassing in order to build our capacity to engage our communities in civil discourse.  Together we will co-create new, authentic pathways for collaboration and innovation that transform our country from the inside out.  We will practice, we will unite, and we will leave with a clear purpose and a plan to put our values into action in our local communities.

Throughout the weekend, we will be inspired by leaders such as:

  • Marianne Williamson
  • Seane Corn
  • Rev Angel Kyodo Williams
  • Kerri Kelly
