Peace With the Ecology
The Essene Sevenfold Peace is an ancient liberation path recently revivified within the context of the Living Essene Way. Peace with the Ecology is essential in nourishing a global environment that supports the spiritual evolution of humanity.

Realizing our Oneness with Nature; Aligning with Your Life's Passion and Purpose
We are not separate from nature. We ARE nature. This radical shift in consciousness must be spread far and wide. The idea that we are supreme and separate from nature is a global disease that has created consumeristic monsters with a disconnect from what it’s doing to the fragile ecosystem. How can we facilitate the health of ecosystems in our daily lives? What do we have to learn from indigenous wisdom? How can we re-write our cultural narratives? What do we have to learn from nature? In my talk, I will explore the themes of oneness with nature, the importance of preserving and learning from our ancestors, and ways that we can begin to live in a harmonious way with the land.
How to Become Politically and Socially Free
How being and doing relate to time and space, fear and desire and duality itself, so long as they are not enjoined. Taking the subject further - exploring how synthesizing being and doing equates to sovereign expression and consciousness-in-action, therefore availing to us the alchemy of manifestation in the temporal realms. Claiming ones true voice, owning ones expression and no longer asking for permission as the new credo for spiritual and conscious evolution.
Creating a Localized & Regenerative Society
The present global economy has significant environmental, social, and spiritual costs that can eventually lead us to a dystopic future. Instead of human society measuring progress by infinite economic growth at all costs, a shift towards a localized and regenerative model for measuring progress needs to be made. This talk will focus on the benefits of decentralized localization and the need to go beyond sustainability towards regenerative design.

Sustainable Medicine and the Human Community
Plant medicine is a way to bring an entire community together much in the same way that any group of animals gather around a watering hole. This vital idea of health care that we can all contribute to and be a part of is an idea that fixes the human condition on many levels.
It creates community and harmony where that might not have existed.
It creates a vital connection between the planet and the human species.
It creates a sense of responsibility at the personal level, which contributes to better health on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Sam Coffman discusses some of the ways in which he has introduced sustainable medicine and nutrition into communities around the country and around the world in order to begin to bring families and neighborhoods together in a solidarity of human survival with the planet rather than in spite of it.

Understanding the Modern Grid and the how to Reduce Dependence on it
The modern system - economy, government, and culture - has developed into a massive control grid that seeks to dominate almost every aspect of your life. It does this first and foremost through capturing your mind - teaching you how to think - so that you are unable to contemplate a life outside of the constraints that the system has set for you. This is the ultimate form of slavery - slavery over the mind. But it is one that is agreed to by its subjects, even if out of ignorance. To seek true freedom requires opening your eyes and seeing reality for what it truly is, breaking out of the boxes that have developed in your mind, and evaluating how you can work around the constraints that have been set for the progress and prosperity of you and your family. It is essential that you understand how our current system works so you can properly assess your own situation and make wise decisions about how to prepare for the future. Join us for a challenging and eye-opening presentation that is sure to make you re-think your paradigm.
