The Gaiasphere Event Center Brings Together A Conscious Community
In 2011 we set out on a rather lofty mission: to empower an evolution in consciousness by creating a platform for like-minded seekers to explore some of the deeper questions of our existence.
Since then, we’ve watched as our community has rapidly expanded from tens of thousands, to now hundreds of thousands. And while the wonders of modern technology have allowed us to reach so many of you, the digital sphere adds a layer of separation between us. That’s why we decided to launch GaiaSphere.
And now we’ve done it – we’re excited to announce the completion of the GaiaSphere at our campus in Boulder, Colorado, where we’ll be featuring some of our favorite luminaries beginning June 14, 2019.
Over the course of the coming year, we’ve invited speakers including Gregg Braden, Caroline Myss, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton, Nassim Haramein, and Graham Hancock for deeply engaging, multi-day seminars that are sure to be life-changing.
The goal of GaiaSphere was to create an immersive atmosphere for our community to connect with each other, with us, and with the thought leaders we all know and love on Gaia. And though these thought leaders will be leading the events, we want the biggest headliner to be you.
That’s what we had in mind when we built GaiaSphere; to take our mission and make it into a tangible, substantive experience where we can meet you and you can get to know us — the real-life personalities and faces who have made it their work to create a conscious media platform.
Our newly built, state-of-the-art facility will bring together seekers from across the globe to connect in a truly transformative environment, facilitated by the brilliant minds who are inspiring paradigm shifts in modern philosophy, health, and spirituality.
So, what can you expect when attending an event at GaiaSphere?
We’ve set the number of attendees for each event at around 250 people – large enough to make connections within our community, but not so big that you’ll feel overwhelmed. We hope that over the course of these multi-day sessions, you’ll forge relationships that could last a lifetime.
During breaks, you can strengthen those newly formed friendships by grabbing a bite to eat at our all-organic cafe with fresh, locally-grown nourishment that will cater to any diet.
Take a stroll around the various pathways that encircle Gaia’s campus, or meditatively meander through one of our stone labyrinths. Then make your way to the Gaia Garden where honeybees from our apiary pleasantly buzz around, pollinating the flowers and trees, while you contemplate some of the day’s learnings.
For those visiting the area for the first time, Boulder and the Colorado front range have endless offerings including gorgeous scenery, outdoor activities, and exceptional dining. You may never want to leave.
If you’re unable to attend in person, don’t fret! Each of our events will be live-streamed in HD and uploaded to Gaia’s archives, always remaining available to Live Access members.
And just like our mission of co-creating an evolution in consciousness, we want you to help us co-create what GaiaSphere could become. These initial events we’ve announced are just the start — we need your help figuring out the rest. If there’s an event or use for the space we haven’t seen, please, let us know. We’re all ears.
Let’s create our own atmosphere here at Gaia and continue the audacious undertaking of creating an evolution in consciousness. Together we can connect, transform, and belong at GaiaSphere.
What is the Hero's Journey?
When I was in my early 20s and my father was dying, a friend gave me a painting. It depicted a river wending its way through soft mountains, with a small sailboat in the distance floating down the river. It struck me at the time as a metaphor for my life. And I was left with the sense that our life is like the journey in a fairy tale, a small vessel following the currents, passing through different terrains, in search of what’s around the next corner. The river knows where it’s going, but we on the boat do not.
On this life journey, we are each discovering the geography of our own inner world. And yet, when we take a step back and look at it from a larger perspective, that geography, and our life journey, is not so different from the basic story that humankind has been playing out since the beginning. Birth. Separation. Initiation.
Return. This shows up in our own lifecycle, and then in the countless ways that we are called to leave what is familiar to us and venture into the unfamiliar. Each of us slaying inner dragons and facing outer obstacles, to be reborn in a new version of ourselves, more true to who we are.
This death and rebirth motif shows up in stories and myths all over the world; is at the heart of some of our great religions; and animates our most powerful films.
George Lucas, struggling for years to create a film his heart had been calling him to write, was able to finish the Star Wars story while reading Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a 1000 Faces, which lays out the basic bones of the human story. Just as the heroes and heroines in that saga overcome fear and attachment to the familiar and rise up to be of real service to the Universe, we are each doing the same thing in our own universe.
Each of us is rising above our self-imposed limitations and outer challenges to expand our sense of self and walk our path of destiny. Joseph Campbell and the Hero’s Journey gave us a map to guide us, and signposts along the way, as we take our journey.
