“One Earth Community: Sharing Our Stories” follows on its precedessor, "Spirit Matters:
Wisdom Traditions and the Great Work". Descriptions of this gathering, held in Toronto in May 2004 and captured in the recently published Circles of Transformation: Finding Our Way in
the Great Work* provides a hint of what is to come at ONE EARTH:

“The Spirit Matters Conference was an event combining an uncommon diversity of luminous minds with a compassionate and celebratory exuberance on behalf of all species and the animate earth that enfolds us.”
-David Abram, author of Spell of the Sensuous

“More than a conference , Spirit Matters was a gathering of kindred spirits passionately committed to bring forth a finer world- a nourishing feast for the soul,
the mind, and the senses.”
-Jorge Ferrer, author of Revisioning Transpersonal Theory

“Spirit Matters was truly a celebration of Earth Democracy- of the sacredness of life in its magnificent diversity- of the sacredness of our human diversity as a condition
of peace and human harmony.”
-Vandana Shiva, author of Earth Democracy
