Questions of Courage – North American Youth Section Annual Conference
8 August - 11 August
“Join us in Spring Valley, New York this summer, as we bring to life what lies just outside the margins of the comfortable, to stir the deeper questions that articulate the soul and move us in our more intimate moments…In gathering together we hope to find inspiration to re-imagine new futures, new possibilities for our earth and humankind.
How do we align the depths of our inner questions with the courageous action needed to bring to life our visions and ideals?
What is true courage, and where does it originate? How can we share, define, examine and enliven this quality so as so strengthen our capacities in the world?
Can we gather together and find greater resolve to meet the growing intensity of social, environmental, political and technological issues?
“When young people are given the freedom to express and unfold themselves, they are not as easily swayed by the empty materialism that is pounding them from the outside……The ability of those young people to communicate what lives in the depths of their hearts and minds …is not only essential for their own development, but also for the future development of human kind. ”
— Lisa Romero, keynote speaker
