About Evolving Consciousness
A few excerpts are provided below:
"The Great Work now, as we move into a new millennium, is to carry out the transition from a period of human devastation of the Earth to a period when humans would be present to the planet in a mutually beneficial manner.
...In reality there is a single integral community of the Earth that includes all its component members whether human or other than human.
The historical mission of our times is to re-invent the human—at the species level, with critical reflection, within the community of life-systems, in a time-developmental context, by means of story and shared dream experience."
Our work (and the content of this web site) is organized around Thomas Berry's 'historical mission of our times' as indicated in the table below.
