KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Spontaneous Evolution: A Universal Love Story
At a time when our world faces multiple crises, here is some good news: We are on the threshold of evolving into a new super-organism called Humanity. Author, humorist and practical philosopher Steve Bhaerman offers an inspiring presentation based on the book both Thom Hartmann and Deepak Chopra have called "world-changing": Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here, co-authored with noted cellular biologist Bruce Lipton. Combining Bruce's work as a biological scientist, and Steve's background as a political scientist, the book offers an exciting and inspiring view of life on earth as a “universal love story.” You’ll learn how and why love heals, and how to use it as a transformational tool as you participate in the greatest adventure in human history -- conscious evolution!
Steve Bhaerman will also be doing a WORKSHOP: : The Alchemy of Humor
