Our profound global crises — of climate, culture, society, economics and more — are requiring us to transform our very ways of being individuals, friends and citizens. A New Republic of the Heart is a place for spiritual practitioners and change agents to learn, practice, and become the next-stage citizens and leaders who can rise to our collective moment.
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 radically committing to our “inner work,” our “interpersonal work” and our “outer work.” 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.
- Influential, leading-edge conversations on the State of Emergence podcast
- Our practice community, the New Republic of the Heart Social Experiment
- Free public online events, such as our recent Spiritual Friends Amidst Cultural Madness
- Our Voices blog exploring community insights
- Books, essays & teaching material, such as A New Republic of the Heart and Being the Change
- A Movement of Movements (in development) to cohere and collaborate with allied communities
Why We Are Here
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.

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.
