In the fall of 2011, Jon Love, former Program Manager of the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium at the Pachamama Alliance, and his partner Satya Narayani Robinson, issued a call-out to other Symposium facilitators in Toronto. Two of us answered the call: David Burman and Natalie Zend. Brian Norman joined us and we formed a Core Group, later joined by Toyin Coker of the Toronto Permaculture Project GTA.

How we operate
We are an open community of individuals, groups and networks, open to anyone who is willing to do the connecting and synergizing for the benefit of all, and willing to learn from others.

We will not become an organization that exists for its own purposes, but strive to serve the needs of the whole and each of the parts of this movement.
We intend to operate as a project resourced by many organizations, institutions, foundations and individuals who recognize the value of “unifying” the movement toward a just, thriving and sustainable Toronto.
