Mission

Our mission is to boldly confront the crises of 21st Century life on planet Earth by committing our talents, resources, experience, and wisdom to develop a network of conscious elders who:

  1. Assume personal responsibility by living simply and committing to lifelong learning and contemplative practices that enable us to live peacefully with ourselves, our human community, and the natural world, while practicing compassionate social and environmental engagement;
  2. Work to restore and preserve the carrying capacity of our planet by vigorously supporting regenerative technologies and initiatives, and by collaborating with a diverse network of inclusive communities that advocate caring, equitable, sustainable, just, and non-violent action; and
  3. Co-create new kinds of cooperative leadership with younger generations.
