Who We Are and What We Do

We are, at this point, one veteran of the Pachamama Alliance and two rookies who wanted to see a Pachamama Community in Pittsburgh.  We want to provide information and a supportive community for people who have heard about the Pachamama Alliance or who have completed the Awakening the Dreamer Symposium or the Game Changer Intensive so that they have a Pachamama home base.  We want to draw more people into pursuing the work of the Pachamama Alliance towards a sustainable environment, social justice and a fulfilling spirituality for everyone at the same time as we support those already involved.

Our Mission

Our immediate mission is to build a Pachamama Community in Pittsburgh.  We heartily invite you to join us.  We hope that we will further develop our mission collaboratively as we add members and build to an effective presence.  We want to support individuals in their particular Game Changer work and to possibly develop group projects based on what issues the members are drawn to address.

We will begin presenting Symposiums in September, 2016, and we will focus on adding members to our Community.  We will be alert for like-minded groups that we can align with as well.

The Areas This Community Includes

Our group covers the Greater Pittsburgh area in Southwestern Pennsylvania plus Southeastern Ohio and Northern West Virginia, although anyone is welcome who is willing to travel the distance necessary to attend our meetings.  We are a new group formed in July, 2016, with three founding members.

Our Community Story

Marsha Tongel and Carmen Accetta both completed the Game Changer Intensive in the first half of 2016 and both completed facilitator training following the GCI.  Shortly afterwards, they found Colleen Crivello, who had recently moved to Pittsburgh from the Bay Area in California where she had been active in a Pachamama Community and gained a lot of experience in producing and presenting Symposiums over about a ten year period.  The three met a couple of times and decided to move ahead with establishing a Pachamama Community in Pittsburgh.

Our Community Activities

As a new Community, our “future is all ahead of us” in the immortal words of Yogi Berra.  We hope the new members joining us will help to craft our unique Community and its efforts to support Game Changers committed for the long haul to help achieve the goals of the Pachamama Alliance.  As yet, we have not established a regular schedule of meetings, but we will post the information here when we do.
