How can we co-create a flourishing future?

Without vision, the people perish
Visionaries are those who believe that a new and different world is possible and dedicate their lives to this end. They articulate and hold to ideals that may be considered ‘unrealistic’ by their more cynical and worldly contemporaries, and yet social and moral progress comes about precisely through challenging the status quo and envisaging new possibilities and potentialities.
Spiritual visionaries such as Teilhard de Chardin, Rudolf Steiner, Beinsa Douno (Peter Deunov), Walter Russell, Simone Weil, Thomas Troward, Sri Aurobindo, Sir George Trevelyan, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Andrew Harvey and Anne Baring have all envisaged an evolutionary process towards cosmic consciousness. Here we become aware of the central I Am within as our essential root identity as One Mind and One Heart corresponding to a trajectory towards a fuller expression of a culture of Love, Wisdom, Truth, Freedom, Justice and Goodness.
Among contemporary expressions is the Wholeworld-View articulated by Dr Jude Currivan – this wholistically integrates universal spirituality, ancient wisdom teachings and indigenous traditions with and supported by leading-edge scientific evidence – and offers a unifying framework of the Unity of reality and its multidimensional realms, to understand, experience and embody unity in diversity.
It describes a Universe that not only exists and evolves as a unified entity, but embodies an impulse to evolve, from simplicity to complexity and self-aware individuation. Where everything in existence has meaning and purpose and where we, as divine beings having a human experience, are its micro-cosmic co-creators and evolutionary partners.
Envisioning an evolutionary vision meaningfully in terms of how we might collaborate, extending the ‘me’ to encompass the ‘we and the ‘all’; not only for our human family, but the entire biosphere – extending out to potential forms of life throughout the universe.
In this session, after some initial background, we will open up a space to explore the common elements of such visions in terms of metaphysical principles, ethics, values, identity and purpose as a way of rekindling our inspiration and commitment to co-creating the kind of future we all aspire to and yearn for – as well as the next steps we can take together in this unfolding process of collective awakening.
