Heart Politix Gathering 2024 – “It Is Time Now”

August 16, 2024 - August 20, 2024

500USD – 1050USD

Mark Skelding

Event Overview

These are perilous times. What if we step out of “the usual” to bring our insights, skills and uncertainties together, holding our glimpses of what is seeking to emerge lightly?  What does a heartfelt, reflective, supportive, empowering, transcontextual inquiry and community look like? And how do you feel when you’re taking new shape?

Whether you work in the “helping professions” or in regenerative practices involving land, language, ecology or culture; whether you express your passion and creativity as an educator or artist or activist, or pouring your love and concern into your family, you are invited to participate and drink at the well of possibility, creativity, wisdom, and goodwill.

The theme, It Is Time Now, suggests the urgency of these times, and, within that, to slow down, connect, consider and embrace the wonder and curiosity that shifts paradigms.  Perspectives and practices from the Work That Reconnects are welcome to weave themselves through our days together.

Walker Creek Ranch is a 1700 acre site, on unceded lands of the Coastal Miwok people in what is now Marin County. As well as being a beautiful place with a very welcoming team, it is ideal for this expression of Heart politix in North America because it is a homecoming of sorts. Fran Peavey, local Bay Area author, comedian and activist, generously gifted the name of her book when HPx Gatherings  began in Aotearoa/New Zealand in 1989.

Maybe you’re wondering what you could ask to learn at such a Gathering. Maybe you have something to share – a workshop, activity, conversation, inquiry or process – that may be useful to others. Maybe you want to lead a nature trail, birdwatch, or simply read poems in the long grass. Maybe you have some instruments or art or craft materials. Or something else entirely.

We’re looking forward to sharing possibilities and creating together with you… see you at the Ranch!
