The 2018 Geography of Hope Conference will take place March 17 & 18, 2018 in Point Reyes Station. For more info, visit

The 2018 gathering strives to cultivate emotional and spiritual resilience during these fraught days of political upheaval, social turmoil, and environmental assaults. With nature as a touchstone, the conference will stimulate a search for new ways to find hope, healing, and strength.

On Saturday March 17, participants will experience a feast of presentations, conversations, writing and reflection with Peter Forbes, Rue Mapp, and Caleen Sisk, building emotional and spiritual resilience for themselves and for the earth.  On Sunday, March 18th, attendees are invited to take part in a land-based local restoration and environmental efforts with Peter Wohlleben, bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate—Discoveries from a Secret World.

As one of northern California’s most exceptional gatherings, the Geography of Hope Conference brings together writers, activists and leaders to the coastal village of Point Reyes Station for discussions and activities that inspire and deepen our understanding of the relationships between people and place.
