About 130 people participated in the Minnesota Presencing Forum on October 24, 2011. The goal of the forum was to strengthen the Minnesota hub of people practicing awareness-based collective change methods in pioneering a more sustainable, inclusive, and aware society. The following images, reflections, and themes came out of the forum and follow-up gatherings.

Stories of Presencing in Minnesota from Patrick Moore
At the November 2011 Presencing Gathering, Patrick Moore shared stories of using Presencing as a change agent/facilitator/entreprenuer in the Upper Minnesota river watershed. The video below is an excerpt from his presentation.
At the January 2012 Presencing Gathering, about 110 people dove into prototyping, to further community solutions in 14 projects in Minnesota that are building more just, sustainable, and inclusive societies. The following video, photos, and word collage offer some glimpses into those activities.
