Sponsored by City Repair and PIECEL Friday, November 17th, 7-9 pm on PSU Campus, SBA #190(631 SW Harrison) The sylvapolitan represents our potential to survive this era of great extinctions, to act as co-creative partners with the great Evolutionary intelligences of the planet, and flourish as a species. This talk explores the role of elder life forms (e.g., fungi, plants, and animals) in the cultivation and education of the sylvapolitan, its the lineage and attributes, the significance of its current proliferation, and its potential to help us understand culture change in these transitional times and align to positive outcomes.

By way of communal breath work, toning, spirit languaging, simple chants, prayers, songs, and visualizations, we move thru an origin story of the sylvapolitan. Potluck Lunch 12:30pm-1:30pm Workshop II 1:30pm-3:30pm Sprouting Thru the Cultural Compost - discussion forum on enacting the sylvapolitan story. This workshop is a discussion forum for us to identify sylvapolitan characteristics in our lives, to develop an eye for noticing them as sprouts thru cracks in the proverbial road of progress, and to apply this archetype to understand the power of Nature to act thru us in generating culture change.
