Geography of Hope: The Sacred in the Land
March 16–17, 2019
Dance Palace Community & Cultural Center
Point Reyes Station, CA
In 2019, the Geography of Hope is expanding from a one-weekend event to a year-long series of gatherings, pilgrimages, and inquiries that explore the theme of “The Sacred in the Land.”
Join us on Saturday, March 16 for a day-long gathering on the meaning of pilgrimage within the environmental, political and cultural contexts of our times. This event includes presentations and conversations with writers, activists, and Native American leaders plus songs, storytelling, history of pilgrimage traditions around the world, and illumination of the ways pilgrimage can be a form of social activism.
Presenters include: Kate Bunney, Walking Water; Gigi Coyle, Beyond Boundaries; John Francis, Planetwalk; Desirae Harp and Michael Preston, Run4Salmon; Weston Pew, Sacred Door Trail; Steve Paulson and Anne Strainchamps, NPR's To The Best of Our Knowledge
The Saturday, March 16 gathering is from 9am to 5pm. An optional community pilgrimage walk (approximately 1.5 miles) with Wendy Johnson will take place on Sunday morning, March 17.
Cost: $150; scholarships available
