Earthdance Theme for 2019
For over two decades, the Earthdance Global Festival for Peace has fostered a peaceful, just, and regenerative global culture through our network of producers and supported non-profits.
Earthdance emerged from our Collective (Heart) Intelligence.
Now is the time to amplify and accelerate our Collective Intelligence by creating and supporting evolutionary initiatives worldwide.
Collective Intelligence (CI) is the capacity of human collectives to engage in intellectual cooperation in order to create, innovate, and invent.
– Pierre Levy
Can collective intelligence save the planet? It’s the only hope we have.
– Patrick Joseph McGovern
Cultures are never merely intellectual constructs. They take form through the collective intelligence and memory, through a commonly held psychology and emotions, through spiritual and artistic communion.
– Tariq Ramadan
To overcome our biological limitations as individuals, we have co-evolved collective systems and capacities – cultural, social, economic, political, scientific, media, educational, public relations, etc. But the flaw in all that is that we have designed them primarily for comfort, profit, power, control, and entertainment rather than for collective intelligence, sanity, and wisdom.
