Our Mission

The purpose of HopeDance is simply to report on the outrageous, pioneering and inspiring activities of outstanding individuals and organizations who are creating a new world--regardless of their spiritual tradition or political agenda.

We publish material and engage in activities (forums, workshops, film festivals...) that are necessary in building ecologically sustainable, practical, down-to-earth solutions, holistic, healthy and awakened community.

Inspiring genuine hope, our intention is to also help connect people to specific projects, individuals, and organizations so that dialogue, wisdom, and vital action will be the fruitful outcome for the people, plants, animals and land in San Luis Obispo County, Ventura County and Santa Barbara County... and beyond.

And we are very much involved in personal consciousness change since often times we need to change ourselves since that is the person we can ONLY change... AND move toward our happiness with smiling, laughter, giddiness to almost counter the virus of seriousness and left-brain obsession of this particular culture at this time.
