16th Annual Bioneers Conference

Oct 14 2005 - 5:55pm
Oct 16 2005 - 5:55pm

Event Description:

For professional and general audiences, this three-day annual event equips participants with models, resources and networks, encouraging everyone to act as primary forces in the transformation toward a restorative future. Bioneers are biological pioneers who are working with nature to heal nature and ourselves. They have peered deep into the heart of living systems to devise strategies for restoration based on nature's own operating instructions. They come from many cultures and perspectives, and all walks of life.
 
Bioneers are scientists and artists, gardeners and economists, activists and public servants, architects and ecologists, farmers and journalists, priests and shamans, policymakers and citizens. They are everyday people committed to preserving and supporting the future of life on Earth. They herald a dawning Age of Restoration founded in natural principles of kinship, interdependence, cooperation, reciprocity, and community.
 
In addition to the speakers listed at right, lunch and dinner are available at $11 per meal.

From 1:00 - 2:15 each day, breakout sessions will include yoga classes, drum circles, and discussions on topics including quantum physics, national health insurance, and organic food cooperatives.
