Paul articulates a vision for restoring the circle of life, promoting inter-cultural healing and peace, and rebalancing relationships among humans and between humans and the natural world.

Miguel and Stephanie are supporting Mari Luz and the women’s federation in their struggle to defend the Amazon’s rivers from big oil and other mega development projects.
The speakers will present a book of stories about the origins of the rivers and the “karuara” — river spirits who live underneath the waters and protect the indigenous peoples and their environment. In solidarity with Indigenous communities around the world, they believe that the water sources are sacred. Indigenous communities are guardians of their rivers, lakes and streams in the spirit of conservation and protection.
