Our Theme for Year 9 is
“Agents of Love; Weaving the Tangled Threads of Irreconcilable Differences”
The Gathering for Change Agents is a no-fee virtual and global community of communities with the soul purpose of supporting people who are called to co-create a better world that works for everyone.
Are you touched by a deep, heartfelt calling to make a meaningful and positive contribution to the global shifts that are unfolding? If you’re like most of us, you feel a growing and unrelenting desire to contribute, in your own unique way, to making a purposeful difference in the lives of people with whom we share this planet and for the world we all share.
And, at the same time, you may feel a bit daunted when you consider the profound changes you’re here to make and what you believe it will take for you to succeed in delivering your precious gifts. You’re not alone!
We’ve been meeting the first Wednesday of every month since Fall 2012 in a virtual, interactive, open-hearth circle to build a sense of shared community and offer opportunities for learning, dialogue, resources, personal and business growth and purposeful impact in the world.
Our soul intention is to support you in mastering the challenges and embracing the opportunities that you face in building a better world that works for everyone!
What support do you need to step fully into your soul’s calling? Participants in the Gathering community have shared some of the reasons they continue to stay connected including:
- Deepen understanding of your inner world and integrate practices and strategies to create inner harmony
- Learn practical ways to create inner alignment that alleviates resistance and supports outer success
- Expand your understanding and views about our world and each other as you listen to insightful and relevant thought leaders
- Discover new tools, processes and perspectives to master challenges and embrace purposeful opportunities
- Enlarge your circle of purposeful connections, potential collaborators and positive change activists
- Inspire others, and be inspired, to take purposeful action
- Receive and offer useful and meaningful support to help each of us expand the impact of our purposeful work

Each month we invite a relevant and compelling thought leader to start the conversation on a topic related to our theme and share recommended resources on the topic. We also make time to break out into small discussion groups and invite larger group discussion to share insights, invite discussion and suggest action steps.
