CEN Community Conversations (CCC’s)
The Conscious Elders Network invites you to join us for our online, lively, open and enlightening conversations that will engage, inspire and inform you. When time zones coincide our conversations are GLOBAL.
What is a Community Conversation?
CEN Community Conversations (CCC's) is a new home for lightly facilitated, educational and interactive online conversations on a variety of topics relevant to elders of all ages. These conversations may be educational, with guest experts, pre-readings or videos to stimulate your thinking, or action-oriented, focused on planning for future activities, events or initiatives driven by CEN’s mission and vision. No matter the topic, each community call will give you an opportunity to share your own questions, opinions, thoughts or concerns about the topic at hand.

New Worldview (NW)
Coming this summer in June/July 2018.
The second series of seven sessions will be an upgraded version of series 1, with guest speakers, new concepts, and new videos. I'm presently in a course with Fritjof Capra studying his book, the Systems View of Life. See you this summer, --Geoff Ainscow
We tend to see the Earth as an object, a thing, in service to us. We use it as our pantry, our lumber yard and our waste dump, which has led to polluted air, depleted soil and poisoned oceans. We need a vital New Worldview…How is a Worldview developed? How can we change our Worldview? What will change if we develop The New Worldview? With these questions be prepared to reflect, explore and discover a generative New Worldview, and more!
2nd Thursday, 9 -11 am PDT Noon - 2 pm EDT
Life is like a labyrinth if we are alive, we are on the “One Path” that leads unfailingly to the center. No one is lost. CLAD conversations inspire us to set aside time for generational, educational and contemplative dialogue and inquiry about what matters now.
3rd Thursday, 9:00 - 11 am PDT Noon - 2 pm EDT
EASJ is concerned with deepening our understanding of the root causes of social justice issues, with a particular emphasis on racism, white privilege, linked oppressions, and income disparity, plus the many ways these issues impact our society.
Elders Climate Action (ECA)
4th Tuesday, 4 pm PDT 7 pm EDT
ECA is mobilizing elders throughout the United States to address climate change while there is still time to protect the well being of our grandchildren, future generations, and all life. We are dedicated to using the power of our caring, our wisdom and our numbers to push for policies that will reduce greenhouse gases in our atmosphere to a level consistent with life thriving on our planet. Each month we have a national call with guest speakers on climate change related topics.
Wisdom Council (WC)
4th Thursday, 4 - 5:30 pm PDT 7 - 8:30 pm EDT
The mission of the Wisdom Council is to align our inner practices with our outer actions and to introduce a sense of the sacred. We spend time together holding this sacred space, then expanding and directing the energetic field from our small community into a larger, even global, one.
