Hope Tank

The world has enough think tanks. We need hope tanks!

Each month, we gather with local friends to generate ideas for building a nonviolent world. Hope Tanks are nonviolence affinity groups for working out strategies for the Great Turning.

Join us for these monthly discussions, which open with a silent meditation and include a potluck (please bring something vegetarian to share).

Petaluma Hope Tank

Our meditation runs from 8:30-9:00 a.m. We then enjoy a potluck breakfast, which is followed by discussion. The hope tank usually wraps around 11 a.m.
