The On Being Gathering — Becoming Wise: A Calling for This Age

Thank you for your interest in the inaugural On Being Gathering! While 2018 is sold out, we are excited to meet you next time! Please sign up for the Letter from Loring Park to find out about future events, as we plan them. Check out our events calendar for other ways to connect with On Being.

If you have a programming or logistical question regarding the 2018 On Being Gathering, please email Laurén Dørdal at [email protected].

For years we’ve aspired to gather together — in the flesh — our far-flung universe of listeners and readers. Now, in partnership with the new 1440 Multiversity in the hills and redwood forests of Santa Cruz county, it’s finally happening!

Our inaugural adventure will take place on President’s Day weekend: three days of conversation, poetry, and community with Krista Tippett, beloved teachers from the show and the blog, and the entire On Being team. Special guests include Seth Godin, Maria Popova, David Whyte, Maria Hinojosa, Naomi Shihab Nye, Omid Safi, Jennifer Bailey, and Parker Palmer.

In large and small groups, we will take up the possibilities of this moment to generatively inhabit the spaces of our lives and renew common life in a fractured world. There will be shared meals and music in the evenings, and plenty of space across the three days for restoration, one on one conversation, and quiet reflection.
