Revival participants actively employ personal, social, spiritual, and natural world Practices that our Organizing Principles naturally emerge from. This growing list of Practices spans countless previously-existing modalities including meditation techniques, creative facilitation, yogic traditions, interactive art creation, nature connection skills, design sciences, community theatre, council circles, systems thinking, ritual space holding, co-counseling, music making, dance & embodiment practices, etc etc etc… Not aiming to overshadow any of these long standing traditions, we merely wish to contextualize them within a holistic Living Systems Worldview, and practice them with each other in service to our Mission

“To be alive in this beautiful, self-organizing universe — to participate in the dance of life with senses to perceive it, lungs that breathe it, organs that draw nourishment from it — is a wonder beyond words.”  ~Joanna Macy
