Addiction in America
FALL 2019 gathering - OCTOBER, 2019 | The Land, Mendocino County, Ca
Addiction - to opioids, alcohol, sugar, love, busyness and more - is running rampant in America. We’re self soothing like never before in ways that just bring us more pain.
Over the course of the weekend, we’ll explore the issue from every major lever of power in society - business, technology, policy, law, culture, psychology, history and philosophy. You can expect to:
Gain a deep understanding of why addiction seems to have taken over our society, and what we can do about it. We’ll discuss the root of the problem - using poor vehicles to avoid pain and seek pleasure - and build solutions from there.
Connect with likeminded people to collaborate with or take action. The School attracts souls on the same wavelength and the event is designed to help you make new connections.
Learn how you can uniquely contribute. The School believes everyone has something unique to give and you’ll gain an understanding of what that means for you.
We’ll start each morning with yoga and meditation, share all of our meals together in the lodge, and spend our time connecting over this issue while we hike, star gaze, swim and picnic. Our lectures and discussions make the most of the natural environment we’re surrounded by. Expect to connect deeply and feel lit up with purpose.
Addiction is personal and has touched many of us - join us to find out what action you can take to make a difference using your skills, talents, passions and assets.
