Pachamama Alliance Game Changer Intensive

Aug 23

Elders Action Network (EAN) is now offering Pachamama Alliance’s Game Changer Intensive (GCI) to EAN Groups.

The Game is Rigged: It’s Time to Change the Game

The Game Changer Intensive is about both personal and planetary transformation: Who we need to be and what we need to do at this momentous time in human history. The Intensive catalyzes the inner work of transformation and aims to inspire and equip us to engage in effective collective action in the world.

This high quality eight-week course features videos, readings, and activities delivered through an online platform that also allows for meeting weekly with our EAN Action Learning Partners and the opportunity to interact in the overall online discussion forum throughout the course.

Please Read This Information Before Registering

Awakening the Dreamer Introductory Program
In preparation for the GCI, your first step is to take Awakening the Dreamer, a free, transformative 2-hour self-guided online course that explores the role you can play in bringing vision into reality.

Enroll in the next EAN Elder Group Intensive
Enrollment BEGINS on June 13 and ENDS August 21 at 11:59 pm PT.
Our EAN Game Changer Intensive begins with an Orientation on August 23.
Enroll here and you will then be put into a special EAN Study Group.

Time Commitment
The Game Changer Intensive will require about 3.5 hours of your time each week for eight weeks—a considerable investment on your part. Feedback from previous participants has us confident that you will find it worthwhile and a best use of your time!

Internet Access
The Game Changer Intensive is an online course so participants must have broadband internet access to watch the videos, read the articles and participate in meetings.

Course Format
The title “Intensive” is apt: you and your small group cohorts will be engaged in an intense, uplifting, empowering course with the key issues of our time and will explore what we can do to make the biggest difference at this time in history.

      • Coursework: The Intensive is divided into 8 modules, each of which includes selected videos and readings, as well as additional guided activities. These will take about 90-120 minutes per module and get completed in your own time each week.
      • Online Discussion: You will also have an option to participate in structured, lively discussion forums on the topics being presented, again on your own time. This could take an additional 20 minutes each week.
        Weekly Conference Calls: In addition to the coursework, there will be a regularly scheduled Zoom Meetings with your EAN Learning group. Time commitment: 75-90 minutes.
      • Live Community Gatherings: At the beginning and end of the course, the full Intensive learning community comes together for 90-minute webcasts.

Donation Based Tuition
The Game Changer Intensive has a unique approach to tuition: it is voluntary and is paid at the end of the course. Upon completion, you are requested to financially invest in the Intensive, selecting an amount that reflects the value you have received from the course and that has integrity with respect to your financial means.

Testimonials from previous EAN participants

The GCI is a thoughtful and well organized course. Well worth the time! Although I had a good working knowledge of the issues the GCI deepened my understanding of the issues with resources that I have continued to use when speaking with others. I especially enjoyed the weekly online small group conversations.” –Lynne Iser, Founder of Elder Activists, EAN Board President

I knew that the ‘political game’ was acutely rigged, but wasn’t clear on the depth and breadth. After the GCI I have clarity about what to do, and where to allocate my time and energy. I’m inspired and invigorated to work toward the tipping point for real change. An impressive program.” –Pam Nichols, Founder of Arete International, EAN’s Elders for Regenerative Living Action Group

The Game Changer Initiative is most impressive in the sequential presentations it offers, the logic the organizers lead us through, and the sheer quality of each of its segments. Each session grabs us by our minds and hearts, leading us to understand how socially, politically and economically the “game” is rigged favoring the few. We, knowing this, can do something about it to transition to a fairer, safer, caring, sustainable society. It gives us two excellent ways to engage – addressing the threats of climate disruption and the threat to our democracy caused by unlimited financial influence.” –John Sorensen, EAN Founder
