Imagine Fest 2019 has ended
Back To Schedule
Sunday, September 22 • 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Heal Yourself, Heal the World Conscious Conversation & Panel Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Imagine Fest is more than an uplifting event, it is a call to action and an opportunity to grow through conscious conversation. Together we will explore the relationship between human trafficking, modern day slavery and systemic oppression - and the role each of plays in combatting them. If we are not actively imposing this insidiousness, we are likely passively perpetuating it.

How do we unearth and root out oppression in our own hearts, in our community, in our country, in the world?

Join our powerful panelists with varied lived experiences as we discuss the idea, "Heal Yourself, Heal the World," its implications, applications and putting it into action.
