Event description

Restore & Re-story

Coming Home to Ourselves, Our Communities, and Mother Earth

How might we collectively face the challenges of our times? How might we learn from nature and ancient wisdom to heal ourselves and heal the Earth together? How might we embrace our grief and embark on the journey ahead with grace and gratitude? 

Join us in a two-day journey to Restore and Re-story our past and present realities to design regenerative futures for all.

The Global Ecovillage Oceania and Asia (GENOA) is home to cultures formed by ancient wisdom and spiritual practices which are pillars of many integrative systems in the world today. 

Drawing from the roots of our culture, join us in a collective meaning-making experience as we close this deeply transformative year with ways of reflection, renewal, and reconnection. Gather with us as we share our stories from grief to gratitude, from healing to wholeness in caring for our common home, from self, to community, and to Mother Earth.

Home to most of the climate-vulnerable nations in the world, GENOA recognizes that our hope and healing lies in designing not only resilient but also regenerative futures. While this gathering is for all of us longing to come home to ourselves, our communities, and to Mother Earth, this event is especially dedicated to the youth of today, with whom we must shape the future, in order for us not just to survive, but to thrive for generations to come. 

The Program

In this two-and-a-half-day gathering, we will journey through the process of Restoring ourselves back to resilience and Re-storying the regenerative future we want.

  • Evening of Nov 26: A warm opening night to kick off the Gathering (this session is open publicly, no registration required)
  • Day 1 (Nov 27): Restoring Ourselves for Recovery and Resilience
  • Day 2 (Nov 28): Re-storying Our Narratives for Renewal and Regeneration

Each segment hosts the following activities that engage the body, mind, and spirit coming from the rich traditions and practices of the Asia and the Pacific region :

  • Body - Embodied Practices (Mindfulness and Somatic practices )
  • Mind  - Reflective - Dialogues (Panels and Webinar Conversations)
  • Spirit - Creative Cultural Activities (Music, Visual Art, Movement, and Performances) 

We invite you to walk with us on this path to Restore and Re-story. Join us at the GENOA 2020 Online Gathering on November 26-28!


The gathering is our way to raise resources for our work but we are also sensitive to the economic inequalities and disparities in monetary wealth that exist in the world. We would like this gathering to be accessible by anyone regardless of background and income levels. So we have designed a tiered system and would like to offer this gathering at the rate that supports your financial capacity. 

Our pricing tiers for the whole program:

  • Branch (Full ticket with donation): $40 AUD
  • Leaf  (Full ticket): $20 AUD
  • Seed (Concession ticket): $10 AUD
  • Twig (Full Scholarship): $0 AUD 

No one will be turned away for lack of funding. We are aware that these
fees might still be high, and we do not want finances to stand in the way of you participating or contributing to this gathering. That is why we offer the Twig ticket with a full scholarship to the program. We hope that in this way, we can both raise funds through your financial contributions and accommodate as many of us to join.


Tree (Pay-it-forward): this includes a donation to GENOA, so
we can give scholarships to people with lower access or to
under-represented groups.

This event is brought to you by a collective effort of the Global Ecovillage Network in Oceania and Asia (GENOA) and other partners around the region.
