A New Republic of the Heart is coming into being spontaneously, naturally, sprouting through the “cracks in everything” – cracks through which light gets in to a fragmenting – and paradoxically globalizing at the same time – world. Here we list just a few of the countless organizations, websites, publications, and other resources that express the intelligence of the heart as it reclaims the human world. You can turn to them as you consider how you can connect more fully with the inner transformational work and the outer activist work through which you will make your most powerful contributions to wholeness.
Understanding & facing global problems with solutions
Sometimes the reality of our current situation sinks in. What do we do when we are confronted by the startling and challenging statistical realities.
While some attempts at cross-partisan dialogue (aka: transpartisanship) in the USA (such as No Labels) are well known, a wide variety of initiatives are advancing on many different fronts.
From the very rich and broad world of progressive activism, addressing issues of economic, political, gender, and racial justice, I list only a few very general progressive initiatives here.
Integral evolutionary resources
The community of integral evolutionary thought and practice has been the primary context for my teaching work since 2004. Hundreds of books, conferences, seminars, meet-up groups, salons, articles, and blogs contribute to the integral evolutionary conversation.
Humans are a lot more than our brains. Here are just a few of the organisations that are researching and helping people to enable fuller capabilities.
Growth centers & concious conference communities
Organisations for growth, healing development, expansive and deep thinking and feeling abound.
Storytelling for change
Lets gather and share the great, simple, emotionally powerful stories that describe our human journey and call higher human potentials from us.
Explicitly spiritual activism
Many books and organizations are working to catalyze spiritually-inspired social change. Each works in its own unique way, but many initiatives have important commonalities with the unique synthesis you see in this book.
Convening transformational conversations
Long before anyone heard of “we-space”, conscious people were pushing the envelope of what could happen among them in groups. Whole fields of deep conversation have been a part of human culture as long as we have existed. Indigenous people sat in council. Socrates dialogued with his students in ancient Greece. The Chatauqua movement invigorated the civic life of America in its first century or more.
Countless small and large-scale social entrepreneurs and corporate executives are working to make business a powerful force for environmental responsibility and positive social and economic change.
Spiritual Practice and Inner Work
Communities of practice are central to the vision of this book. For these communities to make a critical social difference they must embody new higher ways of being and behaving, and that requires profound transformative practice. The majority of the most dedicated communities of practice are spiritual communities. And as we embrace new forms of practice, our experiments will necessarily draw upon this legacy.
