Resonate!2017- A Transformation Festival
October 22-24, 2017 in Peterborough, Ontario
What if We Usher in a New Epoch by Weaving Resonant Communities Together?
What if we gathered to celebrate a milestone, the evolution from one era to the next, and birth a new way of being in relationship and community?
What if we forged a history to look back on by sparking a genesis moment?
What if we could create a space for life – for wanderers and mystics, resonators and renegades to form a new family dedicated to sensing what life is calling forth in our communities?
WHAT DO WE DO?
We work to unlock the abundance and gifts inherent in every community, organization, or group. We do this by holding space for connection and deep dialogue, by inviting each person into openness and vulnerability, by allowing a community to truly see itself and fathom the wealth of talents, dreams, ideas, and values that were always there.
Concretely, we host communities to enter resonant space with one another, so they may experience what it feels like to allow the energy of abundance to flow. And, we co-create and share the stories of each community that are the connective tissue of generative relationships.
Invariably individuals from each community we work with raise their hand and say they too want to learn how to host resonant space and narrate the stories of their community. Our work is not truly done until these individuals have heard their calling, so we can teach and mentor them the lessons we have learned. Our work is not truly done until local hosts and narrators are the experts in nurturing resonance in their own communities and homes.
HOW DO WE ENGAGE COMMUNITIES?
Stories, films, artwork, and images create a new narrative of resonance and possibility in your community.
Resonant community springs out of two fundamental community patterns. The first is convening – how a community gathers in openness, in diversity, in trust, and in curiosity. The second is narrating – the shared stories, sounds, and images that together create the intellectual and emotional foundation of how community members see and interpret their world. Many communities get convening right, while neglecting the potential of narrative. Narratives of all kinds – personal stories, films, poetry, music, and more – weave an understanding of what a community is and what is possible. Ignoring narrative is like not watering the garden: great intention, resources, and hard work can be brought down in no time. Imagine what would happen to your community if it soaked up a constant flow of ideas, personalities, and potential to nourish its growth.
The Way of Resonance Training Program
The Way of Resonance is a year-long program specially designed to teach the core practices of The Resonance Centre methodology and to support participants in living the practice in their own settings.
During The Way of Resonance Training participants step into their own mastery in hosting generative conversations, in holding space for groups, in creating the narratives that bind us together, and much more. Our goal is not to transfer knowledge, but to foster competency that can be used in any setting, in any organization, and in any community beyond the constraints of strict methodology or critical mass. When you are finished with The Way of Resonance, you will have begun to master a new way of being with others that naturally sparks resonance, generativity, and connection.
The year-long training encompasses four 2-day workshops, six personal mentoring conversations, and continuous online exchange with each training group.
WHO ARE WE?
We’re a pretty diverse bunch! Media, government, academia, corporate administration, branding, and entrepreneurship – we’ve covered a lot of bases.
Yes, we’ve had business failures and successes, years of self-denial, decades on the cushion, hosted over 400 events, and created thousands of media works.
But our past is not what defines us.
We are a family of choice. We have all heard the calling of resonance and abundance, generativity and community, and there’s no going back.

WHAT ARE WE WORKING ON?
Collectively we bring decades of experience – successes and failures – to our work at The Resonance Centre, spanning the business, government and civic spheres.
Below are four core areas that we are currently engaged in.
“To be present is to be open to resonance.” - Peter Pula "Whole people participate in whole communities in resonance with the whole of creation." Chuck Peters “When we gather, we are inviting people to fall in love differently.” - Peter Pula “Community is the way for us to stop the merry-go-round of destructive consumption and to fundamentally shift into the next step of social evolution.” - Peter Pula "Resonance can never emerge as long as we insist on consensus." - Ben Smith “The abundance present in a community of souls is infinite and immediately obvious.” - Peter Pula
