| "It is proper to every gathering that the gatherers assemble
to coordinate their efforts to the sheltering; only when they have gathered
together with that end in view do they begin to gather."
"Deep ecology is about transforming our way of life. It is a movement
of people waking up to the root causes of our society's treatment of nature
and peoples. As it seeks to heal the contemporary alienation from self,
community, and the Earth, deep ecology encourages a fundamental shift in
the way we experience nature and how we respond to the ecological crisis."
Principles of Spiritual Activism
"The following principles emerged from several year's work with
social change leaders in Satyana's Leading with Spirit program. Any attempt
to articulate such principles is clearly fraught with peril. We offer these
not as definitive truths, but rather as key learnings and guidelines that,
taken together, comprise a useful framework for ''spiritual activism.''"
of Spiritual Leadership
"In the course of working with social change advocates and ecological
activists, we have developed a provisional set of ''principles of spiritual
leadership.'' These are neither definitive nor authoritative principles,
but rather the beginning of a collective inquiry into how we can apply
spiritual teachings in social change work."
