Beginning on Jan.14, 2021 the Virtual Toronto Summer Institute (VTSI) Ideas that Matter 2.0 featured a presentation and a ‘breakout’ session exploring their approach to Threshold 4 Change. These sessions were offered by Beth Gallagher, Kirk Hinkleman and Joe Donofrio. On Feb 4 they continued this exploration in a two hour workshop.
In times of great disruption, we are called to find the cracks of light and place ourselves as seekers of systemic change right into these cracks, like wedges of truth and love. Born out of a desire to actualize real transformation, the hopes and intentions for Threshold 4 Change are clear: to make space for humans interested in beginning a process of deep listening, conversation and action to affect sustainable, systemic change throughout the state of California. Dropping roles and labels, while holding fast to our shared humanity, a community of allies embodying the change we want to see in our System, in our communities, and first and foremost, in ourselves.
This journey is about awareness-based collective action. Let’s be awake to the notion we all share in this journey…collectively awake to the notion we are indeed at a Threshold 4 Change.
Facilitated by: Beth Gallagher, Life Works, Inc, San Diego; CA,; Kirk Hinkleman, Life Works, San Diego, CA; Joe Donofrio, CHOICESS, Arcadia, California
