Back in May there was a conference up at Hollyhock that I was very sad to miss – the Social Change Institute. (I used to work for the Hollyhock Leadership Insitute and it's events like that that make me wish I still did...) It was a gathering of visionaries in the social change world, and it sounded pretty incredible. You can read Jason's report-out here on an earlier blog post, if you haven't already.

For those of you who don't know much about Hollyhock, you'll be amazed at what a magical place it is. Hollyhock is a huge part of what makes Web of Change so special and unique, because it is nestled on 80 acres of untouched west coast wilderness, and is a place where transformation just seems to happen.
Hollyhock has been Canada's leading retreat centre for over 25 years. For the past 10 years, as a business it's been transitioning into hosting new types of conferences and retreats - ones that balance "kick-ass work in the world" with "spiritual and personal growth". Or, as Van Jones put it last week, "putting some feet under those prayers".
