About SparkAcumen Process: Through the SparkAcumen process, learners come together to find or deepen their commitment to the cause, ground themselves in purpose, and develop a strategy for their way forward. Harness the power of inner-world discovery to spark outer-world change. In this experience, you’ll be called to do both inner-world work and outer-world understanding to reach the best results in leading your cause.

The spark:  A leader’s inner world drives what they’ll be able to do in the outer world. At SparkAcument we believe that planning is essential but the inner work of knowing your purpose in the world is essential to ensuring that one follows through on plans. In most cases change worth fighting for will be difficult. A leader grounded in purpose will have the best chance at a positive outcome. 

The Acument It’s not enough to be excited about the possibility of change or doing great things in the world. Leaders who are most likely to succeed have access to the skills, abilities, and frameworks that will increase their likelihood of success. Through focused skill development and the introduction of frameworks to help thought processes, SparkAcumen gives directions to purpose—increasing the likelihood of positive outcomes  

Our Nature Forum Series 2024

Healing the Planet, Healing Communities, Healing Ourselves

A series of programs engaging communities at the intersections of personal leadership, trauma, healing, and the environment scheduled across spring of 2024 in the third annual Our Nature Series. Through the series, we will more deeply explore… 

  • How the climate crisis exacerbates issues already affecting health equity
  • How actions for the environment help to heal and address oppressive systems
  • Making reparations with nature
  • Connecting to land to begin healing trauma (Gun violence, planting trees, nature deficit disorder, mental health, food apartheid)
  • Elevating methods for nonviolent community organizing

Join us for conversations and events centered around sustainability, climate, and environmental action around our region.
