A New Way of Being Human

Our profound & urgent global crises are requiring us to transform our very ways of being alive. By consciously and whole-heartedly engaging our “inner work” of personal transformation, our “interpersonal work” of authentic relating, and our “outer work” of beneficial action, we can become next-stage citizens and co-create a sustainable world.

What is a New Republic of the Heart?



An international tribe of spiritual practitioners and change agents from over 20 countries is gathering to support one another in responding to our profound global crises. We are meeting, listening, practicing, experimenting, iterating, and co-creating with the intention to be of benefit to the future of all we love.

We invite you to explore our current initiatives and, most importantly, consider bringing your own energy, care, intelligence, and creativity to our collective efforts.


Our nonprofit, A New Republic of the Heart, is currently dedicated to offering the following initiatives.

Why We Are Here

Our Mission

A New Republic of the Heart is committed to serving a collective awakening to what time it is on the planet and the transformation of our very ways of being individuals, friends, and citizens in times of crisis. We intend for our public offerings, educational content, and community efforts to empower ourselves and others to move through and beyond denial, anger, grief and despair into a new level of clarity, joy, fellowship, responsibility, and effective action on behalf of a sustainable future.

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.
