WHERE: Kew Gardens Park at Queen and Lee, behind the Gazebo and baseball diamond, at the picnic area
WHEN: April 15th, 11:30AM, potluck at 12:00
WHO: Members of different meetup groups into alternative living and health, alternative spirituality, and human potential. Please approach us if your group wants to be part of this.
Exchange your ideas and talents; everyone has good ones, now is a time to network with others to learn what you want to know more about. Aliens? Alternative Health? Veganism and Animal Rights? Survival? Spirituality? Indigo Children? Intentional Communities/Co-ownerships/Co-ops? Ask experienced people questions about things you want to know more about. Help other people learn more about your areas of expertise.
Barter your talents and goods; everyone has talent now is a time to market them. Can you heal? Teach? Entertain? Write? Create something of value? There are people who want your help and/or goods and they don't even realize you are out there. If you have books or DVD's on these subjects and want to distribute them or trade them, bring those along, too. Paying money, bartering, or trading in exchange for your own goods or service are all acceptable.
Share your food; we are advocating a sustainable, small footprint diet so it will be a vegetarian/vegan potluck. We do want to spread the idea that animals deserve a life of freedom, too, with a side effect of better health and wellness for humans, and better use of the planet resouces. Please bring any kind of vegetarian dish, with a label that has the ingredients, as well as a dish to eat from and utensils. Also, bring an old blanket that you can use to sit on, if it starts raining, as we will have to move to a sheltered area, close by.
Let's have some good, clean fun, too. More now than ever we need to bring positivity into our lives and the lives of others. This is an event where you can express your physical side too, connect with new people, and laugh. Bring music and dance. Bring yoga mates and strike a pose. Bring frisbees, baseball equipment, volleyballs or board games, like Scrabble, for the cerebral types.
WHY: The old way of doing things is coming to an end. People are waking up to the knowledge that the vast majority of the 'crap' marketed out there is either snakeoil, harmful to yourself or the environment, or just something you don't really need. People are waking up to the knowledge that our financial world upon which our society is based, is on the verge of total collapse, so let's envision a new way to run our society.
Now is the time to create a networked Toronto community to not only survive, but thrive with like minded people who want to bring change into their lives and into this world. This event is all about exchanging what you have to benefit yourself and others in a positive way. We may have different interests, understandings, beliefs, values, and lifestyles, but to truly survive and thrive, we need to accept those differences and focus on what brings us together. There will be multiple meetup groups attending this event which provides a huge opportunity to accomplish this goal. We will also take names and emails of those interested in forming an intentional community, based on these ideals. If it is successful, we will be doing this every Sunday, in Kew Park.
Be there or be square!
