3DL Mission & Vision
IS TO CREATE A SAFE SPACE WHERE WE CAN OPEN, LIKE A FLOWER, SHARE HOPES & DREAMS, AND RE-MEMBER THAT WE ARE SO MUCH MORE... WHERE WE CAN PRACTICE BEING OUR BRIGHTEST AND MOST BRILLIANT SELVES.
WE COME TOGETHER AS A TRIBE OF TRIBES. TO SHARE OUR KNOWLEDGE AND OUR DREAMS. TO LISTEN AND TO BE HEARD. TO HEAL AND TO CELEBRATE OUR HEALING. WE CHOSE TO LIVE ACCORDING TO A NATURAL LAW OF PEACE, FREEDOM, AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. ABUNDANCE. SUSTAINABILITY. MINDFULNESS. ACTIVISM. HEALTH. CONSCIOUS CONNECTION TO "SPIRIT".

Setting an intention...
WE ARE GOOD. WE ARE FINE. WE ARE WHOLE. WE ARE ON COURSE.
This is something that is very important for us to remember right now. Did that "Heaven on Earth" come as easily as we hoped it would? Well, we are definitely closer than ever before. Even if it doesn't feel like it some times, we are. All the lessons we have learned are real. All the hopes and dreams, and visions, they are all just as real today as when they originally came through.
3DL is our time to get together and plug-in with a community of inspired beings from all over the place, all there for the same reason. To feel the connection and to re-member...
And of course... to laugh, sing, dance, learn, cry, and plant seeds in the hearts and minds of everyone around us... seeds that will grow and become our harvest!
the 4 pillars:
The 4 pillars have been adopted from The Emergence CreativeSpace as a solid model for quick and effective change.
Sustainable Living: (Earth Stewardship)
Sustainable living means different things to different people. For on it might mean being more mindful around their use of consumable products, whereas for someone else it may mean living completely off the grid.
We are awaking to our true relationship with the Earth. We are learning how to live with and be in balance with the natural world. Many have been disconnected from the sacred relationships between all beings, but we are now reconnecting and are starting to live accordingly.
Personal/Spiritual Development: (Being the Change)
Everyone is "on their own path". There are no greater teachers than experience and humility. We "meet" ourselves exactly where we are. Striving to be "whole", "Complete", (Sane), we seek out the secrets that are hidden inside ourselves. And we start to notice the deeper mysteries in more and more profound ways. "Seek and Ye shall find!"
When we are at 3DL we are all peers, family, friends. This gives us the courage to be a bit more vulnerable, honest, and hopeful. We can share our experiences, hopes, ideas, and knowledge freely.
Natural Health & Wellness: (Holistic wellbeing)
We all long to be vibrant, healthy organisms. To live with vitality and vigor. To know that every moment that we are alive we are REALLY ALIVE. Yet we don't always make the "Healthiest of choices", and this is ok.
We are on a path that will help us open up to a progressively "better" and healthier self. And thus a progressively better and healthier global community. We imagine how empowered and effective we can be when we are our healthiest and most balanced selves. In harmony with, and thriving with, our mother Earth (Gaia).
Community, Culture, and Activism:
It is the "the community" that we encourage, support, and celebrate with Emergence Earth and The Three Days of Light Gathering. It is the community that makes all this possible. It will also be the community that decides what "tomorrow looks like".
It is the shared vision and efforts, the energy we collectively put out, that is the culture.
WE are the community and WE are the Culture!
It's like Activism... but with an emphasis on the "active" part. It's the rolling up our sleeves, "chop wood, carry water." part of "creating the world of our dreams.
Many of us are hearing the call to build things. These inspirations are the seeds that we plant and nurture. We take action, rather than wait for others. It's in the steps we take, the relationships we make, and the molds that we break.
The Three Days of Light Gathering is a great place to "show and tell" everyone around you the "things you are doing".
we are all visionaries.
ONE OF THE THREADS THAT HOLD HUMANITY TOGETHER IS OUR SHARED DESIRE TO LIVE FULL, FREE, ABUNDANT LIVES. WE SEE A FUTURE WHERE OUR CHILDREN DON'T EXPERIENCE THE SAME ATROCITIES AND IMBALANCES AS WE DO. WE ALL SHARE A HOPE THAT SOMEHOW, SOMEDAY, IN SOME WAY, WE WILL FINALLY FIGURE "IT" OUT AND THEN OUR FAMILIES, COMMUNITIES, AND THE ENTIRE WORLD WILL HAVE PEACE! (SOUNDS NICE, HUH?)
IN THIS WAY, WE ARE ALL VISIONARIES.
THE THREE DAYS OF LIGHT GATHERING IS AN INCUBATOR THAT HELPS INSPIRED VISIONARIES CONNECT WITH THE INSPIRATION, INFORMATION, AND CONNECTION (NETWORK) THEY NEED TO TRANSFORM DREAMS INTO TANGIBLE REALITIES.
a time of healing.
WHERE DOES IT HURT? IS IT A PHYSICAL PAIN? AN EMOTIONAL ONE? MAYBE YOU FEEL A DEEPER SADNESS, ONE THAT COMES FROM A KIND OF DISCONNECT.
YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE, YOU KNOW THIS RIGHT? WE ARE ALL HERE TOGETHER, ON THIS BLUE-GREEN MARBLE, EXISTING AND BECOMING.
3DL IS A SAFE SPACE OF HEALING TRAUMAS IN THAT IT IS CREATED TO BE RESPITE. A PLACE OF REJUVENATION AND RENEWAL. FROM THE SACRED SANCTUARY TO THE HEALING VILLAGE AND CONNECTING WITH "HEALERS" FROM MANY VARIOUS MODALITIES (SCHOOLS OF KNOWLEDGE), ALL PRESENT TO BE WITH YOU AND HELP YOU LEARN TO "HEAL THYSELF."
IT IS THE MOST PROFOUND THING, TO EXPERIENCE LOVE, COMPASSION, AND EMPATHY WITH OTHERS WHO SEE YOU AND FEEL SEEN.
IT'S EASIER TO SEE EACH OTHER WITH "THE LIGHT ON!"
WE DON'T NEED TO RECREATE THE WHEEL.
BUT WE DO NEED TO DESIGN A NEW KIND OF VEHICLE TO GET US WHERE WE ARE GOING.
THE ANSER TO THE QUESTION "WHAT'S NEXT?" ISN'T ONE THAT WE CAN ANSWER HERE AND NOW FOR EVERYONE READING THIS. YOU HAVE A UNIQUE STORY AND A UNIQUE DREAM AND VISION. WE CAN SAY, HOWEVER, THAT IT WILL ALL COME DOWN TO THE CHOICES WE MAKE. AS INDIVIDUALS AND AS A COMMUNITY.
LET'S KEEP IT SIMPLE AND START WITH AN AGREEMENT, OF SORTS. A PLEDGE. A COMMITMENT.
LET'S ALL COMMIT TO BEING BETTER TODAY THAN WE WERE YESTERDAY. LET'S EAT A LITTLE BETTER, LIVE A BIT MORE CONSCIOUSLY, REDUCE OUR WASTE A BIT MORE, CONSUME A BIT LESS AND MAKE SURE THAT WHAT WE DO CONSUME HELPS TO SUPPORT AN ENVIRONMENT OF GROWTH AND HEALING. AND LET'S CONNECT, SHARE OUR VISIONS AND BECOME INSPIRED BY AND WITH EACH OTHER. THIS IS WHAT 3DL PROVIDES.
WE DON'T HAVE YOUR ANSWERS, BUT WE HAVE HELP INSPIRE THOUGHTS AND RELATIONSHIPS THAT CAN HELP YOU FIGURE THEM OUT FOR YOURSELF.
FROM THIS INSPIRATION AND CONNECTION THAT WE FIND THE TOOLS TO CREATE "WHAT'S NEXT!"
creating a map.
THE PHRASE "HINDSIGHT IS 20/20" COMES FROM THE IDEA THAT WE DON'T CLEARLY SEE THE PATH THAT leads US "HERE" UNTIL WE REFLECT ON IT FOR A BIT. AND HONESTLY EVALUATE WHO WE HAVE BEEN, HOW WE HAVE BEEN AND WHERE WE ZIGGED WHEN WE SHOULD HAVE ZAGGED.
SO IT CAN BE SAID THAT WE DON'T REALLY KNOW WHERE WE ARE UNTIL WE SEE WHERE WE HAVE BEEN, SO THAT WE CAN RELATE AND GET OUR BARRINGS. THIS IS A GOOD TIME FOR PAUSE AND REFLECTION. AN HONEST INVENTORY OF OUR SELVES AND A MOMENT TO ADJUST OUR STORY TO BE MORE INLINE WITH OUR TRUTH. IT'S ALSO A GOOD TIME FOR HEALING. REST. RECOVERY.
ONCE WE KNOW WHERE WE ARE, THIS WILL BE MUCH EASIER! ONCE WE KNOW ALL THE TOOLS IN OUR TOOLBOX AND REALIZE THAT THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A GUIDING ENERGY IN "ALL OF IT!", THEN THE PATH AHEAD LIGHTS UP AND IT BECOMES PLAIN AS DAY CERTAIN STEPS TO BE TAKEN.
AT 3DL THERE ARE WORKSHOPS AND PLAYSHOPS CREATED WITH THIS SOLE PURPOSE IN MIND. TO HELP US ALL TO "CHART OUR OWN COURSE."
how to participate.
HOW MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD A HOUSE? AS MANY AS ARE NEEDED, RIGHT? AND THE NEEDS ARE BASED ON WHAT SKILLS WILL BE NECESSARY TO BUILD.
THE POINT IS THAT IT WILL TAKE MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE (ALL OF THEM!) WITH MANY DIFFERENT SKILLS TO CREATE THE FUTURE IN A WAY THAT IS MORE IN ALIGNMENT WITH OUR VISIONS. WHAT EVERY SKILL YOU POSSESS, THERE IS A NEED FOR THIS SOMEWHERE.
YOU START PARTICIPATING BY PUTTING YOUR SKILL TO USE IMMEDIATELY. EVEN IF THE ONLY SKILL YOU FEEL YOU HAVE IS THE ABILITY TO LEARN... THEN START LEARNING! GO TO WHERE THE PEOPLE DOING WHAT YOU WANT TO DO ARE DOING IT, AND LEARN FROM THEM. UNTIL YOU HAVE THE URGE TO JUMP IN AND USE WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED.
YOU CAN PARTICIPATE BY BRINGING YOURSELF, YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO THE THREE DAYS OF LIGHT GATHERING. COME READY TO "LIVE. LEARN. LOVE. & GROW. READY TO CONNECT AND SHARE YOUR HOPES, DREAMS, AND VISIONS. READY TO LEARN FROM THOSE WHO HAVE CREATED PROGRAMS OR ARE ALREADY "LIVING THEIR DREAMS". IF YOU ARE ALREADY ONE WHO FEELS COMPELLED TO SHARE YOUR STORY AND YOUR KNOWLEDGE, THEN TEACH!
AND THEN THERE IS THE EMERGENCE CREATIVESPACE...
WWW.EMERGENCECREATIVESPACE.COM IS A GREAT PLACE TO START.
