Join Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Jack Canfield, Gregg Braden, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Jean Houston,  Barbara Marx Hubbard, Joan Borysenko, Bruce Lipton, Debbie Ford, Lynne Twist,  Lynne Mc Taggart, Duane Elgin, James O’Dea, Andrew Cohen and over forty other Evolutionary Leaders to co-create a new narrative of conscious evolution by:

 

 

* Building a global community and creating a culture of peace

* Restoring ecological balance to nourish all life and mitigate the effects of climate change

* Engaging in social and political transformation by calling for a more conscious democracy

* Promoting health and healing by acknowledging the profound mind-body-spirit connection

* Supporting research and education that optimizes human capacities

* Encouraging integrity in business and conscious media 

 

 

“A Call to Conscious Evolution – Our Moment of Choice” was jointly issued by thirty-eight thought leaders and change agents.   They share a global, long-range perspective and a deep faith in our combined creative capacities to shape our own destiny. The future, in their view, is not what “happens to us” but rather what we can NOW imagine.  

 

 

On July 26, 2008, these renowned Evolutionary Leaders met at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California, to explore their extraordinary potential as a collective. Out of that first meeting came discussions that led to the drafting  of A Call to Conscious Evolution.  

 

This group met to address the global prospects for evolutionary leadership. Their legitimacy however comes from a universal mandate that empowers us all: If not us, who? If not now, when?

 

The Call underscores current issues effecting the globe. Our economy is in crisis, wars are continuing to add to their deadly toll, and the balance of world power is shifting dramatically. Meanwhile, trust in government is at a historic low.  Are we entering an era of chaos and decline, or are we poised to jump to a higher order?

This group believes that today’s mounting world problems are merely symptoms of a fractured, dualistic way of thinking (us vs. them, human vs. nature, win/lose). That view is dangerously out of touch with the acute interdependence, wholeness, and unity in diversity of all that lives. Looking outward but not inward, reacting to external symptoms but not the root cause, we can’t see why our world is out of balance.   As Einstein famously said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

As the slogan goes, “this is Our Moment of Choice.”
