Time to Declare Our Interdependence
"The further human society drifts away from nature, the less we understand our interdependence."
- Peter M. Senge
We believe humanity needs a radical transformation of how we view nature, ourselves and how we can collaborate
Nature is not
ours to control
We recognize we are part of nature and wholly are wholly interdependent with its systems. Our bodies, our food, our air and water are nature.
We weren't born
to live in boxes
We are reclaiming my autonomy by breaking free of the boxes of our own making. We seek the freedom from our limited beliefs and the beliefs institutionalized by society.
Life does have
We are reconnecting with our innate power to live life with Radical Purpose. Purpose is not a target outside us, it is a path inside which we can learn to follow.
Humanity is not only
We leverage our collective intelligence to bring about new ways of being, working and governing by working with awareness and transparency.
comes from people
We were born to come together and make a purposeful impact on the world. Collectively there is nothing we cannot change. The power is ours, we need to make it count.

Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure, as Freud believed, or a quest for power, as Alfred Adler taught, but a quest for meaning.

If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.
