“A global conversation for a new earth.”
That’s what Presence, in our essence, stands for. We want to be where you are, participating in – and leading – conversations that lead to greater clarity, peace, insight and abundance.
This summer, we’re excited to announce two ways that we’ll be able to have these conversations – one in-person and one online.
In person: The Wild Goose Festival
The Wild Goose Festival is annual justice, arts, and spirituality festival that draws thousands from around the world for four days of fellowship, discussion, music, and shared experiences. It takes place in just a few weeks, July 13-16, in Hot Springs, North Carolina.
This year, Presence President Doug King will be sharing on Integral Theology and Biblical Narrative on Saturday at 12:00pm in the Portal area. In this fast-paced, visually-based overview, Doug overlays sacred history with today’s most comprehensive macro-developmental model: Spiral Dynamics. Transcend deep-seated divisions as scorched-earth biblical stories come alive again, illustrating God’s timeless call to let go of alienation and live in connection – with God, self, each other, and our planet.
Doug’s passion is a trans-narrative reframing of the biblical narrative, illustrating its move away from insular in-group concerns to an All-in-All God as our source. If you’ve never experienced Doug’s teaching in-person before, come hang out with us at the Wild Goose Festival.
Mike Morrell will also be sharing at “the Goose,” curating a special pre-Festival day retreat called Wisdom Camp: Contemplative Resilience for ‘Dangerous’ Living. He’s bringing together eight teachers from several narrative backgrounds to collaborate in an interspiritual, trans-narrative space, sharing our deepest insights about wise living in troubled times. You can find out more about Wisdom Camp here.
