1. There is a cool network helping talented people have global impact before they are 30. Cue Sandbox Network. Great work, guys.
2. Jeff Vander Clute is still getting audiences to think about thriving. See here for some of his April address ‘Thriving Communities Reconnect’ to Whidbey Institute. Jeff is Executive Director of New Stories.
3. The Democratic National Convention is a place of theatre, not authenticity. I did not connect with the speeches I saw (Michelle Obama and Barack Obama). However, Bill Clinton’s contribution was widely acclaimed.
5. Marianne Williamson is making a move into the political arena – at the intersection of consciousness and politics: See her interview with friends Ed and Deb Shapiro here: http://vividlife.me/ultimate/26295/marianne-williamson-discusses-her-new-project-sister-giant-the-coming-together-of-consciousness-and-politics/
