Over the next two days, change makers from Los Angeles are breaking from the daily grind to tackle big questions and build new friendships in the San Bernardino Mountains at the first-ever Web of Change local event.
The New Year is about looking forward. But before we do, here are some of our favorite Web of Change memories we made at Esalen in 2015.
Last month we stood in a gigantic circle in Big Sur wrapping this year's Web of Change at Esalen. It was a powerful experience. Here are some of the highlights...
In the week before the Web of Change 2015 application deadline, we held meet-up events in our four largest geographic hubs for alumni and applicants. The following is the story in pictures of our San Francisco meet-up, hosted by Leadership Team members Katie Bethell and Ben Simon.
What makes the gathering unique doesn't come from bioluminescent plankton in Cortes Island waters or healing mineral baths at Esalen, though that doesn't hurt. The magic is created in real time by the participants—135 leaders working at the intersection of technology and social change who come together with open hearts and open minds to learn from one another.
I’ve always thought there must be hundreds of marvellous stories about how Web of Change has come together year after year. Incredible heart and tremendous work goes into building this gathering and sustaining the community around it. In that process there are lessons about leadership, intentionality, systems and risk taking.
