The Revolution Is Love:
A Sacred Activism Community Conversation
with Charles Eisenstein & Lissa Rankin

While we crave Oneness and yearn to end the story of separation, those trying to create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible might unintentionally sabotage the revolution of love by dividing into two camps—the “Being” camp of spiritual seekers loving the world into peace and the “Doing” camp of activists fighting for change in a troubled world. How can we be fully effective in serving Oneness, if we carry separation within us and among us? We are more powerful united than divided. We need each other!

This free 2 hour teleclass is intended to gather, unite, and activate us as an effective revolutionary force of love.

BEING: Those inclined toward “Being” claim that lasting change in the world stems from ending our inner wars, radiating love, and being the change we wish to see in the world. They hope to love people into doing the “right” thing and tend to shy away from those in the “Doing” camps because they judge them as angry, hostile, and ineffective. They believe the revolution of love starts with accepting the world as it is, seeing the perfection in it, and then practicing love as an entraining invitation to others who yearn to create a more beautiful world.

But Being without Doing risks keeping love in a theoretical realm, a safe realm where it isn’t tested and developed by encounters with the world. Moreover, we are not separate beings. To exist is to relate. Sooner or later, the person inclined toward Being moves toward Doing.


DOING: Those who advocate for more “Doing” don’t think it’s enough to just sit around on meditation pillows or pray for peace or BE love. Such activities seem to them a bit “airy-fairy”—a waste of time when there is so much urgent work to be done. They think it’s naïve to assume that evil will just evaporate because enough of us start BEING love, and they assert that sometimes force is necessary in order to protect the innocent and the planet.

But Doing without Being risks reinforcing what isn’t working, repeating ineffective kinds of action that are determined by our own hang-ups, wounds, and blind spots. We are not separate beings—what we encounter outside ourselves mirrors something within. Sooner or later, the Doer moves naturally toward the inner work that marks the pursuit of Being.


So How Do We Revolutionize the World with Love?

That’s what Charles Eisenstein and Lissa Rankin will explore during this free 2 hour community gathering teleclass. We met as keynote speakers at the UPLIFT festival in Australia in December 2014, at which the tension between Being and Doing arose in the pre-festival gathering. Everyone there wants a world of love, unity, healing, and beauty—we are united in that, but perhaps a little bit divided in how to get there. It is time to face and heal that divide.

We sense that this conversation wants to go global. So let’s create this Revolution Is Love together. Consider this your Call to Action.

During this 2 hour conversation, we’ll be discussing:

  • How to unite Being with Doing
  • A key step necessary to get from where we are to where we’re going
  • -4 limiting beliefs we must question in order to choose love
  • The #1 thing we must release in order to revolutionize with love
  • The importance of rewriting our Story of the People and our Story of Self
  • Essential tools to help leaders of The Revolution Is Love fulfill their purpose
  • How even the smallest acts of love can change the world
  • And more . . .

We Want to Hear From You!

While we have much to share about this topic, one of our primary intentions for gathering this tribe together is because we respect the wisdom of those gathered in service to this revolution, and we prioritize giving your voice a chance to be heard. While many of you couldn’t make it to Australia to join us, we want to use our modern technology to gather together the tribe of light workers in service to this revolution, so we can BE and DO together, in order to create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

The two of us will engage this dialogue for the first part of this gathering; then we will invite you to make your voice heard, speak your wisdom, and participate in bringing into being that which wants to be born through us all.

You may not think you’re a leader in This Revolution Is Love, but if your intuition is nudging you to join us for this gathering, you ARE. Just say yes.

With love,
