Deep Change Gathering Slideshow from stone circles at The Stone House on Vimeo.

The Deep Change Gathering in June of '09 brought together social justice leaders from across the country who are bringing transformative practices into their work for change.

Sponsored by the Seasons Fund for Social Transformation and created by the Movement Strategy Center, stone circles, and the Rockwood Leadership Institute, the gathering gave practitioners an opportunity to learn, explore, and connect around new strategies for transforming ourselves and our world.

These images were taken by Willie Davis and the musical accompaniment is from Baby Cowboy- a local up-and-coming Asheville, NC based band.
