Why Attend This Conference?

Network for Developing Conscious Communities is committed to shifting the paradigm in community development through incorporating principle based practices such as grounding ourselves in right thinking, cleansing our conscious and subconscious mind of toxic beliefs and establishing order in our affairs as keys for transforming individual and collective consciousness and heightening your connectivity to community building. 

As conference attendees, our desire for each of you is to expand every opportunity you have to experience new thoughts and tools that support "conscious community development". We want you to consider developing a spiritual vision for your communities, one that incorporates a philosophy of thought that drives equitable practices aimed at creating sustainability irrespective of racial, economic and cultural composition.

As community development practitioners, placemakers and stakeholders, we should ask ourselves "how do our thoughts about the conditions of our communities affect the way we see our communities"? Imagine how the old pathologies of community development would change, if we created a joyous connection between mindful practices that inspired and heightened the vibrational energy for guiding our decisions and visions.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "Poor Peoples Campaign" in which Dr. King organized labor unions as well as religious, civil rights, non-profit organizations to convening Washington, DC, bringing attention to America's wealth and racial problems. Today, we should revisit Dr. King's efforts and build another national movement to address poverty, violence, health disparities and economic gentrification.

We are facing massive federal budget cuts aimed at dismantling many needed programs. We cannot afford to play "small". It's time for our community development sector to stand as one community, armed with the belief that "the time is always right to do right".   

We are looking forward to having you join us in Baltimore and continuing this collective conversation on "elevating our consciousness in community development".

Yours in spirit and mind,

Ron Hantz,
Founder and Board President
Network for Developing Conscious Communities
