Foundation for a Culture of Consciousness, the Common Good and Conviviality

“We stand at a critical moment in the Earth's history, a time when humanity must choose its future. As the world becomes increasingly interdependent and fragile, the future at once holds great peril and great promise. To move forward we must recognize that in the midst of a magnificent diversity of cultures and life forms we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny. We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society.”


(from the Preamble to the Earth Charter)


“The basis of this is the development of a culture of consciousness focussed on the actualisation of our highest potential. Within this culture, everybody is encouraged to discover the humane inter-connections of meaning and life, and to grow into them. Within this culture, life can be felt more deeply and also shaped for the benefit of all: here and now, as our common viable future.”


 (Michael Plesse)

“There is another world, but it is in this one.”
