Entrepreneurs from every generation and every walk of life gathered at Unity of Santa Barbara Monday evening, Feb. 22, 2016, to network and discuss ways to both grow their businesses as forces for good in the world and effect the positive changes we all want to see.  

Forrest Leichtberg, founder of The Santa Barbara Consciousness Network, noted, “This event, and our future events, give local entrepreneurs ways to network and strengthen the connectedness of the Santa Barbara conscious community, which further strengthens our ability to influence the rest of the world toward more peace, prosperity, sustainability and health.”

Featured speakers were Justin Faerman, co-founder of Conscious Lifestyle Magazine, and Adam Hall, author of The Earthkeeper: Underdeveloping the Future

Live music was performed by David Courtenay, singer-songwriter. The host of the event was Forrest Leichtberg. 

Approximately 100 people attended. A series of monthly Consciousness Network events are planned. 

Sherry Klinger is a publicist representing The Santa Barbara Consciousness Network.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
