Bringing the Overview Effect Down to Earth: Our Cosmic Human Heart
The Overview Effect is a phenomenon experienced by astronauts when they see Earth from space, usually involving a direct experience of the Oneness of humanity and our planet. We'll hear from the man who coined the term "Overview Effect" (OE) and consider how it's a powerful tool for building heart coherence — even without going into space. An OE simulation, meditation and "Tone Home" experience will complete our final Global Coherence Pulse Experience morning.

Pulsing the Planet with Heart-Centered Coherence
“BELLA GAIA shows you how humans and nature are connected, and how art and science are connected. Itʼs an exploration of the relationship between human civilization and our ecosystem through time and space.” - Kenji Williams, BELLA GAIA Founder & Director
Enjoy an evening of beauty, awe, music, celebration, reflection and communion. In this closing session of our month-long Global Coherence Pulse Experience we will continue to explore the “Overview Effect” through a breathtaking Bella Gaia experience. We have also invited a number of our musical heartist back for encore performances to uplift us as we “Pulse the Planet” with the shared heart-centered coherence we have been building together all month long.
In coherence, our impact is exponentially greater than the sum of our parts.
