Who We Are and What We Do
Our community of Pachamama Alliance Facilitators includes Victoria, southern Vancouver Island, and the southern Gulf Islands. We welcome newcomers. Some of us have worked together for many years.
This Community Page offers you and your organization added visibility and opportunities for mentoring for new Awakening the Dreamer facilitators. If you have questions, corrections or concerns please contact the page coordinator.
Your presence here lets other facilitators, including from other areas, know that we are here.
We align with the mission and goals of The Pachamama Alliance, as stated at the bottom of this page.
As a group, we are a resource for each other as we and our organizations host, produce, and present the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium and other educational events. The purpose of the Awakening the Dreamer initiative is to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet.
As an entry point for newcomers into our local community we are paving the way for others.
The Areas This Community Includes
We encompass Victoria BC, southern Vancouver Island, and the southern Gulf Islands, all located across the Salish Sea from the city of Vancouver. Please see "Additional Information" toward the bottom of this page.
Our Community Story
The Well Foundation and The Center for Earth and Spirit began hosting and presenting the ATD Symposium in Victoria and Sooke, BC.
In 2011, Transition Salt Spring began presenting Awakening the Dreamer Symposium on Salt Spring Island with support from Victoria-area facilitators.
Our outreach now includes youth groups. The Symposium was presented in 2013 and 2014 at University of Victoria and in 2014 to the Salish Sea Girls' Leadership Program on Salt Spring. Mentoring is available for those wishing to become ATD facilitators.

Victoria, BC, southern Vancouver Island & southern Gulf Islands are across the Salish Sea from the city of Vancouver on the west edge of a vast ecosystem of mountains rivers forests & coastline that connect to the far interior of British Columbia via salmon runs from the sacred headwaters to the Pacific. We, stewards of a region of great natural bounty, find ourselves at a global flashpoint where indigenous tribes and allies like us confront mineral, timber, fish-farming and other corporate interests now destructively taking the area's natural riches for private profit.
