DO USA 2014 @ Campovida
Sep 18 – Sep 21 all-day

Once a year we gather a small number of outstanding human beings to share their story with you in a barn, in a rustic farming community 90 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Our hope is that the stories and conversations allow you to observe and reflect in a way that invites new possibility.

Doing starts with being. We firmly believe this. We also believe that trust breeds magic and curiosity trumps judgement. DO USA is about embracing uncertainty, quieting your cleverness, supporting vulnerability and living empathy.

You’ll laugh hard and you’ll probably shed a tear. You’ll hug, you’ll dance, you’ll gaze at the stars and promise yourself you’ll do this more often.

You’ll dream big, you’ll walk barefoot in the grass. You’ll breath deeply and you’ll sit still and wonder. You’ll need to zip your sleeping bag all the way to the top and you’ll need coffee, because there are moments you don’t want to miss…they could change your life forever.

It’s a small event, we’ll be romancing 100 amazing individuals. There are no name tags, everyone is equal. You’ll eat and drink fresh local organic food and wine grown on site, your senses won’t know what hit them.
