A Community of Practice and Collaborative Action

Our global challenges may be distressing, but our response doesn’t need to be. Millions of change agents around the world are creating new ways of living and working that are joyful, meaningful, inspiring and already changing culture and society. You’re invited to learn, practice, and collaborate toward becoming one of the global citizens and community leaders who can rise to our collective moment.

What is A New Republic of the Heart?



We serve spiritual practitioners and change agents in over 20 countries who are committed to becoming more effective citizens, activists, and leaders in their own communities.

Our educational offerings focus on three essential areas:

  1. “Inner work” of self-awareness and personal transformation
  2. “Interpersonal work” of authentic, compassionate relating
  3. “Outer work” of practical, beneficial action in the world

We invite you to attend online events, participate in courses, join our global community of practice, or support our work with a contribution.


We create educational experiences, we support a global practice community and we create collaborative alliances that catalyze change within us, between us, and around us. Here are a few of our first initiatives:

An Ethos for Revolutionaries

Explore The Book

Written by our founder Terry Patten, A New Republic of the Heart: A Guide to Inner Work for Holistic Change addresses our global meta-crisis in all its aspects—environmental, economic, political, and cultural. Terry frames our global and societal crises as opportunities and challenges to us, now, personally—in terms that penetrate our usual abstractions and avoidance.
