Life on a Star 1 Family Conference: The Power of One / The Power of Community

August 15, 2021 to August 21, 2021

Jackie Trimble Shapiro & Linnea Bardarson, Co-Chairs Life On A Star 1 theme speaker, William Powers will explore the underlying question most pertinent to our time: How can one live fully, joyfully, sustainably and in community while simultaneously healing the planet? This Theme Talk combines insight into complex ecological problems with moving stories of the people who are affected by climate change and social violence.

We’re excited about getting back to Star Island with socially distanced programming including last year’s planned Minister, Theme Speaker, most workshops and youth programming. The details are being worked out and  we will be updating our website regularly.
