Forest attended along with around 25 others throughout the course of the day. There were two sessions of between one and two hours of conversation about the earth and issues and solutions. The general theme of the many things said, emerged as the importance of being for things, not only against, and how powerful our thoughts and intentions are. When we come to someone filled with negativity, the chances of us getting through to them is minimal. There are lots of solutions to nearly every one of our problems, but the system is too broken (or working too well for only a few) for them to be implemented on the scale necessary. A major shift in how we organize ourselves, how we relate to eachother and the earth, is essential at this critical juncture. We are bumping up against ecological deadlines.
