Workshops and presenters include:

1:30 pm - Josh Wolf talks on independent media and peace. Josh is an independent journalist and a filmmaker, and recent San Francisco mayoral candidate.

1:45pm to 2:00pm - Peace meditation led by Swami Chitananda. Swami was initiated into the Jnana Yoga Shankara Parampara sect of Hinduism at the 1998 Maha Kumbha Mela in Hardwar, India. He has led many talks and meditations on peace and spirituality, including taking part in the Gathering of Elders at Earthdance. He also built the world's largest Sri Yantra, located in northern California.

Swami will also be leading a prayer for peace at the beginning and end of the faire in the center intersection of Howard and 2nd Streets.

2:00 pm - Pachamma Alliance presents Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposium...

Are you ready to be inspired and moved to action? Are you ready to explore new perspectives and practical solutions for shifting our modern culture into balance? If so, we invite you to come to this 30-minute presentation about The Pachamama Alliance, which will include a short video and discussion about the work they are doing in Ecuador, followed by the educational symposium Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream. Following the presentation there will be a breakaway session to examine the issues and opportunities that face our local and global community. See the future as an opportunity for positive change!

The mission of the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposium is to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, socially just, and spiritually fulfilling human presence on our planet. "The most critical issue and greatest opportunity of our time, and what you can do about it."

The mission of The Pachamama Alliance is to preserve the Earth's rainforests by empowering the indigenous people who are its natural custodians and to contribute to the creation of a new global vision of equity and sustainability for all.

Conscious Dancer Magazine presents Sound and Motion workshops...

2:30 pm - One People Voice / Gamelan X works with the vocal interlocking rhythms and physicality of Balinese Monkey Chant, or Kecak. This guided chant experience is about building community energy and unity through the interweaving of our voices. You will experience a noticeable uplifting of physical energy and an increased sense of joy, and most likely you'll laugh a great deal while sharing this time with new and renewed friends. Go deeper into holding your own voice strongly while being conscious of the voices of others in the community.

3:30 pm - Conscious Dancer Magazine will lead a guided moving meditation through a wave of different musical energies designed to center your spirit. Join us for an intentional interlude to recharge for the rest of your day at the faire!
