The human family is in the midst of perhaps the most significant transformation of consciousness since its emergence in Africa over 100,000 years ago…a time of incredible new potential for our individual and collective humanity. Simultaneously, we are the first species on this Earth aware that we can destroy ourselves by our own action. This may be the greatest wake-up call to the evolution of consciousness since the origin of Homo sapiens sapiens. The changes required of humanity are broad, deep, and far reaching. We must act swiftly, with a unified voice and mission.
Evolutionary Leaders: In Service to Conscious Evolution www.evolutionaryleaders.net
The purpose of the Evolutionary Leaders project is to collectively inspire, support and serve conscious evolution. Read the Evolutionary Leaders' mission statement, How We Engage Statement and A Call to Conscious Evolution. This project was initiated by the Source of Synergy Foundation in 2006 when it begun retreats with the Chopra Center in New York. In the summer of 2008 the Source of Synergy Foundation co-convened a special retreat in California with The Chopra Center and the Association for Global New Thought to leverage the extraordinary collective potential of renowned Evolutionary Leaders in the consciousness movement so that together they could create a unified field for deeper engagement by:
- Envisioning together how they can utilize their collective energy and intention to accelerate the shift in consciousness and how to bring it more into the mainstream;
- Exploring the cutting edge of action and thinking in the consciousness movement by mapping major pieces of the movement;
- Creating a more concrete sense of collective engagement by clarifying the specific roles each participant/community/larger network is serving in the movement;
- Creating a deeper collective ground for new potential collaborations, sharing of resources, and mutual support among ourselves and our organizations;
- Contemplating and acting on ideas of how new levels of consciousness can help solve some of the world's current challenges.
The Evolutionary Leaders issued A Call to Conscious Evolution following their first retreat to help birth a new planetary culture that activates our full potential as a human species.
It’s an historic moment in time and evolutionary leaders around the world have a key role to play in this new era of change and responsibility. Together, they are helping to shape a new narrative of conscious evolution and strategically engaging a collective field of potential to further ignite a movement in consciousness for the benefit of all.
The Evolutionary Leaders gathered in retreat once again in July 2009 and August 2010 in Malibu, California, October 2011 in Calistoga, California, June 2013 at the United Nations in New York, June 2014 in Ashland, Oregon, June 2015 in Calistoga, California, June 2016 in Abiquiu, New Mexico, June 2017 in Wappingers Falls, New York, June 2018 in Santa Barbara, California, and June 2019 in Loveland, Colorado as an expression of their continuing commitment to a collaborative approach to accelerating the shift in global consciousness.
