Online Event - Collective Resilience Summit

The Collective Resilience Summit will take place May 12 - 17, 2020. This free, online and highly interactive summit will explore how to develop and sustain the individual and collective resilience we need to meet our increasingly complex global challenges with wisdom, skill and compassion. This entails a deep exploration of what it means to be human and how we can heal and repair our relationship with the earth, our fellow species and each other so that we can learn to thrive together as one human community in the face of adversity. Learn from more than 40 experts including leading neuroscientists.

This pandemic is exposing all of us to significant traumatic distress and placing us at risk for a host of stress and trauma-related health consequences in addition to the risk of contracting coronavirus. By addressing these risks with simple yet powerful tools and practices​ we can deepen our resilience and co-create resilient communities, organizations and a more resilient society.

Resilience is also a long-term issue for the future of humanity. This summit will explore strategies for increasing individual, relational, collective, cultural, social and systemic resilience. Finally, this summit will help us to listen to and heal our relationship with the Earth.

Participants will learn
  • How to deepen your own physical, mental, emotional and spiritual resilience 
  • How to co-create communities of care and resilience, wisdom and compassion 
  • How to envision and work toward a culture of resilience, justice and sustainability 
  • How to take care of ourselves, our families, our employees and each other.  

A Completely New Kind of Online Summit

The Interactive Summit Site will have curated and self-organizing opportunities, to engage and interact with your fellow participants, Summit sponsors and participating presenters -- including Q&A sessions, film premiers, Way of Council dialogues, breakout rooms for Circling practice and Authentic Relating games and additional opportunities for networking and community building.
