What’s happening with Truckee Tahoe health

Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposiu, helping North Lake Tahoe residents respond to global issues, will take place at the Incline Village Library from 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 24. It will provide an opportunity to understand what is happening in the world and to consider how we can play a part in addressing problems and creating a world that works sustainably, for us and for future generations.

Participants will explore our modern culture and engage in a workshop that uses inspiring video, up-to-the-minute facts and dynamic group interaction. We’ll hear from some of the world’s leading experts on topics as diverse as the current state of the Earth’s biodiversity and the reality of the socio-economic disparity throughout the world. Through this inquiry, each individual will discover the unique stand they wish to take for a more just, sustainable and fulfilling world.

Learn from the multimedia, interactive event and explore a new global vision built on environmental sustainability, spiritual fulfillment and social justice. Now you can be part of what’s emerging, because you already are. For more information, call (775) 232-3394 or e-mail cathy@cathynorris.net.
