The Evolver Convergence

Pittsburgh, PA: Friday, June 1 – Sunday June 3

Where others may hear alarm bells (peak oil, 2012, global warming), a rising grassroots movement is answering the call — building a new planetary culture that is sustainable, full of meaning, and truly humane. The Evolver Social Movement invites all agents of change to connect and collaborate with fellow pioneering voices of this growing evolution during our first ever network-wide convergence. For this unprecedented weekend-long event (including Saturday night party), members of the growing transformational tribes and Evolver Spore chapters will descend upon Pittsburgh for a weekend of paradigm-bending talks, interactive workshops, visionary art, ritualistic fun, ecstatic dance, and positive manifestation with those working to address the global challenges tidal-waving towards us.

The Convergence will cover topics ranging from sacred economics to shamanic reemergence, permaculture principles to Occupy ideologies, bio-remediation to redesigning community, the psychedelic renaissance to the promise and perils of new technologies. This interactive journey is your chance to “find the others” and engage directly with the trailblazing thinkers, activists, and artists working to build “the better world our hearts know is possible.”
