Symphony of Minds: Feeling Our Way into a Vibrant Future is a webinar co-sponsored by Stop 5G International and the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. The webinar will bring together people from various fields and advocacy groups to share and cross fertilize minds and hearts, as we try to make sense of these seemingly disruptive and confusing times, and to feel into what may be manifesting on the horizon.
It is evident and palpable that the world is in crisis now on many different fronts. Some of the issues we are now facing touch nearly every one of us profoundly and very personally: 5G, climate change, war, covid, vaccines, satellites, physical and mental health epidemics, political polarization, racism, nuclear weapons, globalization, etc. But there is a silver lining. The crises are so impactful they seem to be fast tracking us toward a much-needed global awakening, reckoning, and rethinking of where we’re headed.
As people who care deeply about the state of the world, we advocates/campaigners spend much of our time opposing what is wrong. In so doing, we may inadvertently give power to what we don’t want, rather than to envision, manifest and empower what we do want.
This webinar is an opportunity to link arms with other advocacy groups and thinkers, and together envision what kind of world we want.
Shared core values of what we’re working toward can help soften the barriers between silos of advocacy and help grow a grassroots movement of global healing.
So, what kind of future do we want? Having reached their end of useful life, are cultural and societal norms giving way to newer customs and perspectives that better serve all life? Is our extractive view of earth’s bounty sustainable and does it nourish our souls? Do our institutions encourage the highest potential and the unique contributions of each one of us, or do they numb us and pit us mindlessly one against another? Will changes be mandated or will they emerge organically as we awaken? Can we reclaim life at the local level in the face of the relentless globalization toward which our civilization seems to be hurtling? Can we find balance? How can we overcome racism, biases, and “othering” so imbedded in our cultures? Should a civilization that uses profit and competition as the “wind in our sails” be replaced by one ushered through time by the gentle breath of gratitude? Will immense suffering inevitably accompany the labor pains as the new world crowns, or will the excitement of what lies ahead inspire us to “breathe into” the process and welcome the new?
This webinar is intended to be one of many small steps being taken by people around the world to address what went wrong that got us to this precipice; what we’re doing right now; and where we might go from here to reach a tipping point of global healing and awakening.

Webinar Speaker Jean Hudon: Knowing and Sensing Who We Truly Are Can Make a Whole World of Difference
Jean Hudon, born in Quebec in 1952, has been at the forefront of the global movement to shift our world onto a sustainable, peaceful, healthier path. With the global network of contacts he has developed since 1981, he has launched various initiatives to facilitate peace, environmental awareness and spiritual awakening. He has published two books – a Guiding Manual for a New World in 1986 and an ecospiritual novel, The Immortal Child, in 1988 — and created and networked since April 2000 hundreds of globally synchronized meditations to help thousands of people experience first-hand their inner connexions with the Web of Life. For the past 10 years, he has devoted much time and effort to help counter the growing threat of electromagnetic pollution. Since 1980 he has lived in an ecohamlet (which he built himself) in Quebec and where he grows many of his own vegetables…and spends way too much time at the computer to fulfill his passion for networking information and enlightening others as to what makes his heart happy.
Note: In addition to the webinar, on Sept 22, Jean will be leading the Equinox Meditation: Global Consciousness Shift Activation.

Webinar Speaker Frédérique Apffel-Marglin, PhD, Shamanism Healing Ills of Modernity
Frédérique Apffel-Marglin, PhD. is Professor Emerita, Dpt. of Anthropology at Smith College and founded Sachamama Center for Biocultural Regeneration (SCBR) in the Peruvian Upper Amazon in 2009 which she directs. She has spent years in India and Peru working with indigenous peoples and with farmers. She was a research associate at the World Institute for Development Economics Research (WIDER) in Helsinki, a part of the United Nations University, for several years in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Along with the Harvard economist Stephen A. Marglin, she has directed several research projects questioning the dominance of the modern paradigm of knowledge. In the early 1990s she decided she could no longer continue doing ethnographic fieldwork – which she had continued doing in the Indian State of Odisha – for moral and political reasons. She was then invited by the Peruvian intellectual-activist group PRATEC to collaborate with them in Peru which she did until 2005. From 2005 to 2009 she collaborated with the Upper Peruvian Amazonian Fair Trade Coffee Cooperative Oro Verde until 2009 when she founded her own center in the same region of the Upper Peruvian Amazon in the State of San Martin. At SCBR in the Upper Peruvian Amazon she works with indigenous communities as well as several High Schools in the province, regenerating the most sustainable and climate reducing pre-Columbian anthropogenic soil known as Terra Preta do Indio (black earth of the Indians). She has authored six books as well as edited or co-edited nine more books and published some 70 articles and book chapters. Her more recent books are: Subversive Spiritualities: How Rituals Enact the World (Oxford U. Pr. New York, 2011); Sacred Soil: Biochar and the Regeneration of the Earth with Robert Tindall and David Shearer, (North Atlantic Books/Penguin Random, 2017) and most recently Contemporary Voices from Anima Mundi edited with Stefano Varese, Peter Lang, 2020. She is currently working on a book on Upper Amazonian Shamanism.
