For nearly two years, the VisionForce community has been following the story of Clovis Ategeka, as he has ventured forward to create prosperity in Uganda. Now he’s coming to America this June! With your help, that is!

I just interviewed him and his friend/colleague Medi, who aims to join Clovis here in Austin for Prosperity For All 2008. Please chipin even a small amount to make Clovis’ voyage here possible!

Watch for more details about this adventure at the Prosperity For All 2008 blog.

VisionForce stands behind the visionaries in the world who are sticking their necks out to stand for their vision of a better world.

One visionary, Nancy Polend, has taken a stand for prosperity for all in our lifetime.

VisionForce is standing with her, and calling to the world to find 50 visionaries willing to stand with her.

If you’re someone who stands for a better world, and contributes your time and energy in service, we at VisionForce want to stand behind you. To honor you and support you in bringing about the world you envision, we’ve created Visionary Activist Awards, which make it much more affordable for you to attend our iStand Experiences. You can read more about these awards at our One Million Visionaries web site (live but under early development).

Often times we, as visionary activists, can become so enraged by what people are doing to the things, people or causes we care about that we start fighting against the powers that be, rather than standing for the world we envision and inviting others to stand with us. Our iStand Experience is an intensive training in how to think, speak and take action in ways that can inspire even your greatest adversaries to let down their walls and stand with you.

Our next iStand Experience is this June 10-15, 2008 in Austin, TX, where 50 visionaries from around the globe will unite to face everything, avoid nothing and stand for PROSPERITY FOR ALL IN OUR LIFETIME! If you feel called by this and you are a visionary activist, look for applications here next week.

Next Wednesday a few dozen individuals from around the world are gathering here in Austin, Texas to take a stand for their lives, for our lives and for life itself. They are those who are willing to claim the title of visionary, simply be being a conscious being with a choice to see and create a better world in the face of great adversity. They are those who are willing to look within, face what there is to face, find something worth standing for and come together to create a world that works for everyone.

We are at the dawn of a new era, in which human beings own our full power to create. It begins by stepping into a sacred relationship with self, others and all that is.

The work we do at the VisionForce Boot Camp is quite simple, yet very profound, and it has great implications for the world we live in.

The next domain of technology that will transform the world we live in is the inner domain of human relationship–relationship to self, others, the planet, the universe, the divine, etc. For nearly five decades we’ve been flying into outer space and landing upon the moon, but we seem to find it more challenging to traverse the inner space required in landing within the sacred realm of another’s heart, let alone our own. This is the next frontier. It’s an invitation to all those who dare to explore and pioneer new paths for connecting with others, even and especially those seemingly opposed to us, and creating together.

Already, there is a growing movement around the world, as noted by Paul Hawken in his book, Blessed Unrest, of organizations that are rising up to cross divides, stand together and create a better world.

One such organization is the Pachamama Alliance, which we are honoring at our March Boot Camp, in calling out specifically for 44 inspired leaders who are willing to stand with us to “bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just human presence on the planet.”

Today, I honor those who are journeying here next week to “face everything, avoid nothing and stand for humanity.”
