As we humans learn to live in a living universe, awakening our capacity for collective consciousness is our most critical and creative challenge.

Michael Bernard Beckwith's picture

Authentic evolutionary leaders are guided by their inner spiritual practice, lead with their heart, live by their values everyday, and maintain a beginner’s mind of teachability, receptivity and humility, ever available to new insights and revelations.

Joan Borysenko's picture

If we take some deep breaths, let go of our agenda, and open up to the presence of love, the spirit of guidance will let us know how to participate in creating—and enjoying—a future that works for us all.

Gregg Braden's picture

As we live the greatest shift in power, wealth, technology and beliefs the world has ever seen, our personal choices of cooperation and sharing become our collective answer to the crises of our shift. This Evolutionary Leadership group is simply giving a name and a focus to the cooperative movement that is emerging spontaneously throughout the world.

Conscious business leaders understand that as the most powerful institution in society, business must assume responsibility for the whole—the planet itself, and all its people and creatures.

Deepak Chopra's picture

The universe has become self aware within us. We have the responsibility to be stewards of its future evolution.

Jack Canfield's picture

We are standing at a major crossroads in human history. We are being called to evolve to a higher level of consciousness, cooperation and co-creation of a world that works for everyone and all life forms. If we fail to answer that call, we risk the total destruction of all life on the planet.

Scott Carlin's picture

I would like to invite people to engage in conscious conversations where, through heart-centered listening and being truly present in the moment, a deeper more authentic connection occurs.

No more prizes for forecasting the rain; only prizes for building the ark. Let's get it done!

Andrew Cohen's picture

In our time, when so many people are looking for ways to make the world a better place, more and more of us are going to have to be spiritual heroes: to be willing, in all our imperfection, to be exemplars of what’s possible and to stand for spirit in a disbelieving world.

Dale Colton's picture

Mutual respect, cooperation and collaboration among individuals, communities and organizations of like-minded people world-wide can collectively create enough conscious coherence to form a "critical mass" to shift the consciousness of the planet.

Stephen Dinan's picture

Everything in our world is sacred and interconnected - and we're in the midst of an epochal shift to recognizing that truth in every realm of human endeavor. It's a magnificent time to be alive and participate in this evolutionary leap.

Gordon Dveirin's picture

If we want to get back to the garden, we have to become the gardeners.This is the secret door to paradise – co-creativity –humans and nature partnering as artists to bring the world of living beauty into ever fresh forms for the shared sacrament of pure enjoyment.

Barbara Fields's picture

To be/work/love from a place of true and pure authenticity catalyzes a state of grace beyond linear explanation. It’s a kind of spiritual alchemy... When all stops at the center. When the noise of material life fades and all distracted motivations dissolve... In this place, one sees clearly and choices cannot help but be authentic. You stand at the cocreative edge and hold hands with the universe.

David Gershon's picture

And the ancient heroic ones offered the torch and said "make the world better." Those who receive the fire embark on a profound journey to greater self knowledge, spiritual fulfillment and soul growth.

Ashok Gangadean's picture

All through the ages our great wisdom teachers - our evolutionary elders - have issued a call to humanity to fulfill our evolutionary destiny through an awakening of consciousness. This global call to conscious evolution fulfills our individual and collective maturation as humans and marks our advance to sustainable cultures and the flourishing of our human family. We have arrived at our moment of choice.

Mark Gerzon's picture

To meet the tough global, integrated challenges of today, we urgently need to raise the level of our collective leadership. We need to increase both our global intelligence (mind) and our planetary empathy (heart) in order to a give birth to a just and sustainable civilization.

Charles Gibbs's picture

The call of this moment and all moments is to seek the light and face the darkness without and within with an unflinching commitment to journey each day at least a little toward enlightenment – living in love, fearless, joyous and free – in service to this glorious and wounded world.

Lynnaea Lumbard's picture

Knowing we co-create our own evolution calls us into the greatness of our beauty, wisdom, compassion, skill, grace and courage to live into a new story of what humanity can be.

Jean Houston's picture

There is a radical need for a new natural philosophy based on our new knowledge of the cosmos, the world, the cross-cultural mix of knowledge and understanding, potential evolutionary directions, and our own emerging realities.

Barbara Marx Hubbard's picture

The only solution is our own conscious evolution.

Bruce Lipton's picture

We are on the threshold of the greatest adventure in human history — conscious evolution! New-edge science offers a bold and hopeful vision of the next “holistic” stage of human civilization and what each of us can do to fully participate as co-creators of the world to come.

Howard Martin's picture

Through the power of your heart’s intelligence you can move beyond your limitations into a new reality that allows you to become a more conscious co-creator and true custodian of the planet and its future.

Elza S. Maalouf's picture

I strongly believe that meaningful change in the Muslim world will take hold when Pragmatists—and not just moderates—are chosen to lead. In a predominantly tribal world Pragmatists can lead, moderates follow. My work is informed by Psychology at the Large Scale that designs for the emergence of healthy cultures.

Fred Matser's picture

The chaos in the environment is a reflection of the disorder in our minds and hearts (invironment).

Rod McGrew's picture

The Evolutionary Leaders represent a New Perspective on the many ways in which the Human Collective can Serve to Enrich Humanity and the Environment as a Whole.

Lynne McTaggart's picture

For hundreds of years we have acted against nature by defining ourselves as separate from our world. What is now called for, in the midst of the continuing crises in our current way of life, are measures far more radical than individual instances of economic, political or ecological reform. We now require nothing less than a revolution in our thinking, in our entire paradigm.

Nipun Mehta's picture

Small acts of generosity elegantly reduce our mental footprint. It is that internal simplicity that will seed a cultural shift from consumption to contribution, transaction to trust, isolation to community, and scarcity to abundance. 

Nina Meyerhof's picture

People of the world who hear the Call to Consciousness acknowledge that we are called upon to move from limited thinking to the emerging awareness of our inherent unity. Yet it is our future generations who will BE and live this. May we help be their WAY and support their future of evolutionary leadership in this revolution of social consciousness.

Deborah Moldow's picture

The times we live in are calling us all to a new level of love and service. What a joy to answer this call together!

James O'Dea's picture

In the end the human story is a healing story, and Earth's whole system healing will be an initiation into an even greater story of cosmic unfolding.

Carter Phipps's picture

What the world needs now are Evolutionaries, committed activists and advocates, positive agents of change, interested in conscious evolution, who recognize the urgent need for our own culture to evolve, and for each of us to play a positive role in that outcome.

Carolyn Rangel's picture

The brave are fearless, but the benevolent are invincible.

Ocean Robbins's picture

The struggle for justice is as old as tyranny itself, and the longing for a world guided by love is as deep as the human heart. Thank you for joining in the ancient struggle to build a new world.

Oran Cohen's picture

Within each individual is the indivisible. Our work is to find the Song of Our Heart and to courageously bring it to the world with audacity, imagination, passion and grace. And, through engaging our mojo, inspire others to do the same. Now that's how we change the world; one swinging heart at a time!

Peter Russell's picture

The next great frontier is not outer space, but inner space: research and development into the untapped potentials of human consciousness.

Elisabet Sahtouris's picture

If bacteria could learn to cooperate without benefit of heart or brain, surely we humans should be able to as well.

Yuka Saionji's picture

When we start to truly connect with the wisdom within ourselves, as well as the wisdom that lies beyond us, a shift starts to happen. I believe the time has come for individuals and organizations awakening to this balance to come together in love and power, to join hands in this movement, and to collectively create a positive future together.

Gerard Senehi's picture

Not already knowing is a quality that is inherent in the evolutionary perspective,  because we intuit that entirely new ways of seeing, being and acting are  possible. This intuition gives us the freedom to let go of attachment to the way things are and open ourselves up to new possibilities.  

Christian Sorensen's picture

A thousand difficulties don’t need to make one doubt. Let your life reflect the ever emerging good for all the world to see.

Michael Dowd's picture

Reality is my God and integrity is my religion. Scientific, historic, and cross-cultural evidence is where I go for guidance and inspiration—not ancient texts or mythic beliefs. My ultimate commitment is to grow in right relationship to reality and assist others and our species in doing the same.

Katherine Woodward Thomas's picture

We all want to be a force for positive change. Yet, until we actually make the choice for care over indifference, faith over control, humility over ego, and uncertainty over certainty, we will be less than effective. Becoming a true evolutionary-- one who is able to midwife the unmanifest potentials of life into the manifest world, requires great character, commitment and courage.

Lynne Twist's picture

When you let go of trying to get more of what you don't really need, it frees up oceans of energy to make a difference with what you have. When you make a difference with what you have, it expands.

Diane Williams's picture

To become evolutionary in one’s thinking one needs to believe that more is possible. It’s about moving forward and not only activating one’s highest potential but taking it a step beyond that to a zone where true evolution takes place.

Terry Patten's picture

We live in a time when evolution demands a convergence of our inner work, our outer work, and our networks. A meta-sangha is beginning to form, in which teachers and students and activists are surrendering ego to birth a much-needed “just-in-time” transformation of human culture.  

Daniel Stone's picture

Each one of us faces questions in all spheres of our lives; and yet the answer to every question lies within our hearts, and is accessible through stillness and love.

Jeff Vander Clute's picture

In Self-realization, here You are, having a human experience of Your own creation. Turn the dial of awareness and You are Humanity having a collective experience. Turn the dial further and You are another species, a planet, a solar system, galaxies, universes, and beyond… all manifesting, experiencing, and disappearing from view. In AWAKENESS, you are the SOURCE of the Totality of phenomenal existence.

Cherine Badawi's picture

Amid this profound moment of planetary transition, we must share the emerging stories that speak to a sane and beloved future within our reach: a future rooted in connectedness - to self, each other and the planet. For in telling the stories, we amplify what is emerging and we amplify what is possible.

Margo King's picture

What joy, realizing the ever present great natural perfection of everything, just as it is! What pure relaxation, knowing ourselves to BE the unified field and power of natural intelligence itself ---- inseparably, spontaneously, acausally, timelessly, immutably, blissfully, infinitely expressing and collaborating in and as life --- as creative expressions, leaders and agents of compassionate wisdom, intrinsic ethics, and skillful means, in practical action for the benefit of all everywhere.

John Steiner's picture

“We put ourselves in the only place of immediate, inexhaustible benefit, each one of us, united together in the invisible fabric of invincible, seamless  solidarity — open intelligence” (awareness, clarity, nature’s own intelligence, implicate order, Tao source consciousness, God....).”
  --Candice O’Denver

Shilpa Jain's picture

If 'divide-and-rule' has been the major operating system of the last few hundred years, and has led us to the current crises that exist today -- perhaps 'connect-and-self-organize' is a way to a healthier, thriving, more just and balanced world at all levels: personal, interpersonal and systemic.

Jeff Carreira's picture

When we face mounting challenges and overwhelming crises, we are tempted to see philosophy as a luxury item that we can no longer afford. It’s not! In fact, in the face of overwhelming difficulties, philosophy, which is the pursuit of truth, becomes more important, not less.

Connie Buffalo's picture

The “renaissance” of awareness is not just for man to advance into greater humanism for the good of mankind, but for men and women to join the symphony of creation and know at last that we are all related.

Jude Currivan's picture

In the commonality of our humanity we are all ordinary. In the commonality of our divinity we are all extraordinary.

Panache Desai's picture

You are not broken. You do not need healing. You do not need fixing. Everything you’ve been looking for has always resided within you and now it’s time to fully embrace your magnificence.

Olivia Hansen's picture

Together we can inspire a transformation of consciousness that brings in the best efforts of humanity working for a better world for all. Life and the crises of the times demand this. And together we can do it.

Desiree Hurtak's picture

We live in exciting times where the paradigms of Life are being redefined by those who seek a positive future and those who know that Love is the true Law of Life.

J.J. Hurtak's picture

Future Science is science guided by consciousness. All of us can be witnesses to the aliveness of the spirit and the crucial meeting between science and consciousness that defines a new Image of Humanity.

That which is inside you and expressed will set you free, that which is inside you and unexpressed will eat you from the inside out.

Carolyn Lukensmeyer's picture

Harnessing the burgeoning consciousness that is found in awakening people throughout the world to help address the compelling issues of our time will require a degree of transformation that is unprecedented in the known history of our world. 

Oscar Miro-Quesada's picture

When we surrender the need to figure it all out, and cultivate the ability to let it all in, then our earth walk becomes a sacred dance of healing service on the planet. More than the world needs saving, it needs loving.

John Perkins's picture

We are blessed to be living at this time of the greatest revolution in history, the Consciousness Revolution. People around the world are waking up to the fact that we must transition from a Death Economy, based on wars and ravaging the earth, to a Life Economy, based on cleaning up pollution, helping hungry people feed themselves, creating new forms of energy, transportation, banking, and business in general. The 1% have screwed the rest of us and we are shaking ourselves awake!

Vandana Shiva's picture

Over the past three decades I have tried to be the change I want to see.

Patricia Albere's picture

The experience of 'mutual awakening' holds the key to the future. At this point in history we must develop the ability to turn towards the space between us in a stance of open surrender. When we do, we enter into a dimension of unity and connection that we intuitively know is the reality we are meant to live together. The consciousness of mutual awakening activates and unleashes a profound level of creativity and care that will evolve humanity's consciousness to the next stage.

Panos Anastasakis's picture

The joy of being of service to Life, in all of its expressions, is exquisite and unparalleled. May the Evolutionary Leaders family serve as a vehicle of Divine Love that will ease the suffering and uplift the collective consciousness towards Oneness.

Darius M. Barazandeh's picture

There is a light and song in your heart that is so profound, when you connect to it...anything you truly desire can become yours.

John Clausen's picture

Knowing that we are consciousness becoming conscious of itself changes everything…I see it as a wondrous dance of love and service, of merging and emerging.

Kazu Haga's picture

If we carry intergenerational trauma, then we also carry intergenerational wisdom. By maintaining a relationship with our ancestral wisdom, we can build a truly peaceful world for future generations.

My goal is to spread love, light, peace and truth into the world through the vehicles of music and energetic frequency.

Kurt Johnson's picture

Interspirituality—a more universal experience of the world’s religions, emphasizing shared experiences of heart and unity consciousness—represents part of the world’s ongoing movement toward globalization and multiculturalism. It can be seen as the inevitable response of religions to globalization. ~ Kurt Johnson, The Coming Interspiritual Age.

Bernardo Kastrup's picture

If we only see through the delusional forest of abstract concepts within which we've become lost, and which is constantly reinforced by the mainstream cultural narrative, we will restore our relationship with truth. The rest will then fall in place by itself.

Joe Martino's picture

Change starts within. Even external solutions first have to begin with a change in consciousness.

Act from the heart, don't fear the law.
Prepared to fly, cause I dare to fall.
Walking might seem daunting, only if you're scared to crawl.

Llyn Roberts's picture

We live in a provocative, evolving time that promises to impact how we live together on the Planet, how we continue as a species, and how we understand ourselves in relation to a larger universe. Now is the time to live in ecstatic relationship with nature, and the force of life itself.

Well-being is not about eliminating the unwanted parts of ourselves or our experience. It's about radical inclusion. When we embrace the whole with open eyes and an open heart, we paradoxically transform it.
