Our work at Regenerating Paradise is to listen, really listen, and to help people listen to each other. We bring people together who are working on different initiatives to talk with each other, share ideas and cross-pollinate them. Sometimes people will discover new synergies and collaborations. Other times they’ll go away more clear about their work — and knowing how much they are part of a larger whole.
We also come together in a celebratory way, talking story, listening to great music and sharing wonderful food. When people know what’s actually happening, when they understand the ways in which their neighbors are stepping forward to regenerate paradise, they get inspired and informed. It is regeneration in action. Maybe they’ll join an existing project, or maybe they will start something new. The regenerative spirit grows.
