Earlier this year, Generation Waking Up and the Luv Amp Project came together for a magical, life-affirming leadership training at the world renowned Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA.

This three day leadership training brought together a talented group of changemakers, artists, and musicians from L.A., Santa Cruz and the Bay Area. The training provided ways to explore how we can individually and collectively play a role in bringing forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world, while also connecting participant through the heartfelt musical vibrations of the Luv Amp Project and the healing properties of the Esalen hot springs.

The intention of this love-filled collaboration between The Luv Amp Project and Generation Waking Up was to empower a group of young people to take leadership in a new project called, I.AM.LIFE. I.AM.LIFE is “a life-affirming, music, arts, and media project emphasizing and fostering the connection of Western youth with Amazonia and its indigenous people – expressing urgency and possibility of taking personal responsibility for life.” At the leadership training, we spent time beginning to vision and plan a trip to the Amazon in Ecuador where some of these young leaders will interact directly with the indigenous people of the Amazonian rainforest.

In the next few months, these young leaders and their mentors will be collectively creating and organizing the next phase of the I.AM.LIFE project by engaging in research, planning and collaborating with key organizations like Amazon Watch and The Pachamama Alliance.

The next public event of the I.AM.LIFE project is “ART4LIFE“, taking place in Los Angeles on April 27, 2013. Artists will display and auction their original art, and all proceeds will go to I.AM.LIFE to support six young people who will be traveling to the Amazon.
