Fear not the unknown. It is a sea of possibilities. — Tom Althouse
Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there’s a big disappointment, we don’t know if that’s the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. — Pema Chödrön
The Co-Creators Convergence (CCC) is a sacred gift for our body-mind-spirit that many of us look forward to each year. Your Weaver Team – those who weave together our co-creation – is thrilled to announce the theme for our 8th annual gathering as we face the space of the COVID-19.
PORTALS OF POSSIBILITIES: Embracing the Unknown
According to our visionary teacher and futurist, Barbara Marx Hubbard: “Our Crisis Is A Birth.” The virus event has gripped the globe and torn the fabric of our previous experience. During our Co-Creators Convergence, we will create a safe, sacred, resonant field, where we can explore possibilities of our re-birth! What has changed in your BEing and Beingness that wants to be spoken, heard and explored and loved into the future? How have you grown and what new talents have you explored inside yourself? What gift(s) are waiting for you on the other side?
To aid in our explorations, our gathering will be structured to allow for more “Open Space” for sharing, meditation, spending time in Nature and listening to what wants to emerge. As our dear teacher encouraged us, we will strive to answer the question: What is new and evolving individually and collectively as we embrace our “Newness.” As always at CCC, you will be inspired, transformed, entertained, and connected to the heart-centered source of ALL. You will also find kind support from our circle of healers, authors, seekers, empaths and so many more!
NEW! We invite each of you to Co-Create with us. If you have an idea for a collaborative experience that you would like to offer for the group or a way to invite deep and meaningful experiences related to our theme, please let us know. Once you register, you will be sent information on how to contribute your experience during our gathering.
Our 2020 Convergence will once again be held at beautiful Sunrise Ranch Spiritual Retreat Center in Loveland, Colorado, and will commence at noon Wednesday, September 9, and end at noon Sunday, September 13. REGISTER HERE online OR call Sunrise Ranch at (877) 786.0078. (Partial payments are accepted online or by phone.)
Please Note: When making your reservation with Sunrise Ranch, it INCLUDES your Registration Fee ($250), Choice of Food and Lodging. BECAUSE OF COVID-19: If you are experiencing difficulties with payment, limited SCHOLARSHIPS are available. Registration fee (only) can be waived. Contact Noel at CoCreators@Lightpartners.org.
We’ve reserved a seat at our table of Co-Creation that can only be filled by your unique divine expression. We would love to see you in September!
Joy and blessings to you all!
Your 2020 CCC “Weavers” Weaving co-creation into our blessed gathering!

Nicole is a Vibrational Sound Therapy Certified Practitioner, NLP practitioner, corporate trainer, business consultant, and Revolutionary Agreements coach. Nicole’s early journey to healing was deeply self-“centered.” Her only intention was to heal and find meaning from her life of intense abuse, deeply rooted in poverty and suffering. On the path of healing, she discovered the power of presence through techniques she learned in various mystery schools and self-development immersion programs. This process helped her to discover the beautiful world of sound healing. Nicole is dedicated to helping the collective “us” use the power of presence to shift how we view ourselves and the world around us, and discover the beauty in every moment.

In a world where we are taught to find our happiness “out there,” come on in and en-joy the wonders of who you are – Unlimited Potential, waiting to be realized!
I am honored to be one of the Weavers for the CCC again this year. 2020 will be my wife (Thalia) and my eighth CCC. About me:
I have a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering
I “graduated” from a 40-year career in aerospace engineering management
We have two grown children (both married; one grandchild, Elizabeth Rose, was born during the 2019 CCC!)
While pursuing my aerospace management career, I discovered a passion for servant leadership and deep listening. As such, I am a member of the Keepers Council for the Milagro World Center. I am also doing life coaching and facilitating a course titled Safe Conversations. Being a Weaver is another opportunity to put my passions into action. I look forward to hearing you share your passion as we grow in love and compassion!
WHO? We are joyful members of Humanity including authors, artists, musicians, sacred activists, teachers, healers, and co-creators of all ages from all walks of life.
WHEN? Convergence from noon Wednesday, September 9, through noon Sunday, September 13, 2020. We encourage participants to attend the entire event to maximize our co-creative field.
WHERE? We will gather at beautiful Sunrise Ranch outside of Loveland, Colorado. Since 1945, Sunrise, an intentional spiritual community of 70-plus residents, has lovingly stewarded the land and water of its 400-acre ranch.
