You long to make a lasting difference in the world, but politics and protests aren’t for you. The shouting for change appears judgmental and hopeless. Where is the inspiration? Imagination? Dream?
For more than thirty years, Dr. Chalquist has collected resources for bridging reflection and action through the medium of reenchantment, hope, imagination, and story. Change the story and you change the system. He calls this approach Enchantivism. Quiet people can do it. Burned-out activists can do it. You can do it, and it’s fun. Unleashed, Enchantivism can help communities find renewal and creative ways of affecting positive change for a future we can all thrive in.
To get inspired, attend this free training series online or in person. Participants will be invited to join online or on campus at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.

Most of us know what we’re against. Let’s explore what we’re for.
For fantasy is true, of course. It isn’t factual, but it is true…. It is by such statements as, “Once upon a time there was a dragon,” or “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit” – it is by such beautiful non-facts that we fantastic human beings may arrive, in our peculiar fashion, at the truth.
– Ursula K. Le Guin
