Global Spirituality, Sacred Earth, and World Shift

Music, Celebration and Town Meeting: Can We Make The Leap?
with leaders in the Interfaith-Interspiritual, Sacred Earth, Integral, and United Nations NGO Community

June 10, 2014 | 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
The StarHouse, Boulder, CO

We are at the dawn of a new consciousness, one that will transcend the past cultures of fragmentation and isolation…This work will be the task of an emerging “Interspiritual Age,” made possible by a new set of historical circumstances. — Wayne Teasdale, Interfaith and Interspiritual pioneer


We live in a time where not only are individuals discovering the uniqueness (and unique importance) of their own spiritual path and practice, but the world itself is becoming more and more aware of:

  • Sacred Earth (the fundamental need to sustain our planet with a rich living environment)
  • An Emerging Global Spirituality (as our planet inevitably goes global and multicultural)
  • The necessity of a profound World Shift (if we are to avoid calamities from a number of global cultural and climate related challenges)

This program brings together spiritual teachers and leaders from across the world’s interfaith and interspiritual, eco-spirituality and eco-activist, and global sustainability and social and economic justice communities for a rich evening of mind and heart sharing on the possibilities and necessities of World Shift.
