A Journey Inward with Steven Wolfe
The Sunday morning program will begin with an open dialogue facilitated by Steven Wolfe that will explore the inner source of our driving desire for space. Through this guided communication, attendees will seek to access that subtle region of their being from which the passion for space exploration and settlement arises. If sincerely engaged in, this exercise will serve to strengthen the resolve to pursue and ultimately achieve our goals in space. To prepare for this session, read this article by Steven Wolfe:
11:00 am Elaine Walker will make a presentation regarding her experiences at the Mars Station on Devon Island.
12:00 pm Additional Sunday sessions will focus on leading edge ideas and culminate in a town hall meeting and workshop on how to expand and accelerate this important movement.
