Pat markets and facilitates traveler’s participation in Pachamama’s journeys to the rainforest of Ecuador and supporting each person in realizing their personal goals for the journey.
“Working with each traveler choosing to learn more about the integral role of the rainforest in our planet’s delicate balance and the spiritual and cosmological message of the Achuar people is an opportunity to contribute to the possibility of miracles occurring. My work with Pachamama provides a joyful arena for my commitment to a thriving, just and sustainable world.”
Prior to her work with Pachamama, Pat was involved with several non-profit organizations and worked closely with Lynne Twist and Soul of Money Institute for many years.
Director of Pachamama Journeys
David is responsible for Pachamama Journeys, an experientially based, transformational program that powerfully reconnects participants to the Earth, themselves and others through direct experience with wild nature, indigenous cultures and shared group experience.
“In 1998, I was called to the San Francisco Bay Area with the deep knowing that my life’s work would be there. Soon after, I became the second staff member of the Pachamama Alliance. I’ve been bridging the global North and South for over 15 years and have had the privilege of spending significant time with our indigenous partners in the rainforest and Andes. I’m a committed student of earth-based wisdom.”
Prior to his current role, David held several positions at Pachamama, including Executive Director for 7 years. He also managed a successful State Senate campaign in Massachusetts, facilitated wilderness experiences and vision quests for adjudicated youth in the Arizona dessert, and was a Peace Corps volunteer in Latin America.
