Welcome! We come together at a unique moment in time. It seems as if we had to be quarantined in order to find each other and connect like never before.

The UP Convergence 2020 is an 8-Day Multi-Zoom Global Online Summit culminating in a 3-Day Peace Weekend starting on 9/11 and continuing through 9/21.

The goal of the UP Convergence is to empower each other to move UPward, change the limits of what’s possible, and come together in an unprecedented action to #UniteTheWorld. We invite and welcome your genius!

“Remain true to yourself, and move ever upward toward greater consciousness and greater love! At the summit you will find yourselves united with all those who, from every direction, have made the same ascent. For everything that rises must converge.”

United Forever: Facing Our Future

United Forever: Facing Our Future

Sep 29, 6:00pm - Sep 29, 8:00pm

UNITY EARTH

The historic UNITY EARTH four-year peace building series will climax in Washington DC on Tuesday September 29th with United Forever: Facing Our Future, a global broadcast giving voice to the silent supermajority who believe we MUST stand together in the face of the great challenges of our time.

Watch the full broadcast on Facebook or at www.unity.earth

Featured presenters include UnGun Institute Founder Dr. Marty K Casey, Unity of Washington DC Senior Minister Rev. Sylvia Sumter and Chief Dwaine Perry of the Ramapough Lenape Nation. The event will open with indigenous youth leader Janiskwe Medina-Tayac of the Piscataway Indian Nation and close with a powerful ceremony presented by May Peace Prevail on Earth that presents and honors the flags of all 50 U.S. states and 193 nations.

Since 2016, the Road to 2020 event series has woven its way across four continents, uniting thousands of diverse groups in the quest to pave a brighter pathway for humanity and the planet. Presented by global peace building network UNITY EARTH, in partnership with a broad range of local, national and international organizations, the Road to 2020 culminates this month with the Caravan of Unity across America.

Launching at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, the Caravan has featured a groundbreaking series of live stream and in-person intercultural, interfaith and musical events in Las Vegas, Colorado, Nebraska, St Louis, Chicago, Philadelphia and Stony Point, NY with the Ramapough Lenape Nation. The tour now turns its sights to Washington DC, with a grand finale to be broadcast live from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Tuesday September 29th.

The event - United Forever: Facing Our Future - aims to give voice to the growing movement that believes our best hope is to face our future together: as Americans, and as human beings. The finale will bring the momentum of the Road to 2020 and Caravan of Unity to the nation’s capital, with a diverse group of presenters set to inspire an international virtual audience with poetry and prayer, speech and song.

United Forever is proud to be able to honor the Piscataway Indian Nation, on whose land this event will be held.

We are very blessed to have two powerful heart-centred guides to open our 3.5 day online event.

We are joined by Woman Stands Shining, Pat McCabe, to open our conference with prayers and blessings.

Join us for a wonderful ceremony and then be enthralled as you listen to Pat's wise counsel.

⭐️⭐️Pat McCabe (Weyakpa Najin Win, Woman Stands Shining) is a Diné (Navajo) mother, grandmother, activist, artist, writer, ceremonial leader, and international speaker. She is a voice for global peace, and her paintings are created as tools for individual, earth and global healing. She draws upon the Indigenous sciences of Thriving Life to re-frame questions about sustainability and balance, and she is devoted to supporting the next generations, Women’s Nation and Men’s Nation, in being functional members of the “Hoop of Life” and upholding the honor of being Human Being.⭐️⭐️

Following this heartfelt opening, we will continue our deepening journey of togetherness as we listen to the powerful heart-wisdom of Mac Macartney.

⭐️⭐️Mac Macartney is an author, an activist, and an international speaker. He is the founder of Embercombe in Devon, a centre that seeks to inspire and empower people to live in close relationship with nature and co-create a regenerative, flourishing future for all species.⭐️⭐️

Over a period of twenty years Mac was mentored by a group of indigenous elders. During this training and ever since, he has attempted to bring two worlds together – an ancient world-view that emphasises relationship, interdependence, and reverence for life with the significant challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century.

In 2013 Mac was presented with the Enlightened Society Award, and in 2015 he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Education for his work in service to the community by Plymouth University. He is the author of a recently published new book entitled The Children’s Fire, heart song of a people, and has delivered four compelling TEDx talks.
