Join us Monday, August 8, 11:30 am to 12:30 pm PDT (2:30 to 3:30 EDT) for an interactive online experiment in connecting with each other and our deepest yearnings for a world built on belonging. The event is limited to the first 200 registrants; all others will be waitlisted for the next event.

Featuring inspiring talk, meditation, body movement, and small group conversations with others in the OBI global community.

There is so much in our histories and communities that inspires us, but even still, many of us face despair and depletion in the face of multiplying crises and the never-ending flow of bad news. We invite you to join us in co-creating an online gathering to help us nourish our selves, our communities and our planet. We want you to feel recharged, not exhausted, so please be prepared to listen and (optionally) share stories of struggle and inspiration in small breakout groups.
