About Pachamama Alliance Community Events

Community events are gatherings held by Pachamama Alliance Communities, including monthly meetings, seasonal ceremonies, discussion groups and other special events.

Event Details

Each of us has had our lives shaped by the systems created by the global imbalance between women and men that has existed for thousands of years.


It’s time to bring those who identify as men and women together to tell our stories in a safe, brave space of honest sharing and deep listening.  Because this issue has affected all of us, the healing that can come from the sharing of our stories on this issue can be profound. Although we will be explicitly focused around issues for men and women, all are welcome.

Please consider joining us for this Listening Circle to begin to heal the divide that creates so much misunderstanding and suffering in our personal development, our relationships, our institutions, and our culture. Let’s move together towards the biggest picture our hearts can hold for a beautiful future, one truly heard story at a time.

• Be ready to listen and speak with courage,
openness, honesty, and compassion for one another.
• What is said in the circle stays in the circle.
