Why “The Shift”? Because...

  1. 1.Current life conditions are mounting - threatening all life on earth.

  2. 2.Old thinking isn’t going to save us. We need a global mind-shift.

  3. 3.Moving in a different direction is our only chance to survive and flourish.

  4. 4. Not only must we shift, we must proceed with the speed, money and energy equivalent to WWII’s armament campaign. We need to step it up.

Is this “human nature”?

“In a time of crisis, pressures mount for Life to take care of itself—to evolve, to awaken and do what needs to be done to survive and flourish.”

What Would It Look Like?

This 25-minute video (the longest on this web site) asks us to reflect on the state of the world and ourselves, and to listen more closely to what is being asked of us at this time of unprecedented global transformation.

What if the world embodied our highest potential? What would it look like? As the structures of modern society crumble, is it enough to respond with the same tired solutions? Or are we being called to question a set of unexamined assumptions that form the very basis of our civilization?

THE SHIFT “A”, “B”, “C

Questions:

  1. 1.What global shifts do YOU think need to happen?

  2. 2.Is human nature a hindrance or a help to a positive shift?

“What does it mean to look in the face of a world that seems to be going rapidly in the wrong direction – and say, No. We’re going to switch course, and I’m going to make it happen.” 

from ‘The Shift’ movie trailer   


  Our possibilities are infinite; our choices unique, and what we each do is important.

Life Conditions Are Signaling A Major Shift.

“Society is sick and wants to get better.
And, as individuals get well, society gets better.” Ann Wilson Schaff

Humanity WILL SHIFT. Whether it is ugly, catastrophic and selfish - or intelligent, compassionate and life-giving depends on what we do. . .NOW!

SHIFT HAPPENS

THE SHIFT is not only crucial, it must happen with the speed, money and energy equal to WWII’s armament campaign.

For the shift to succeed it will take a massive people’s movement.
We can’t wait for the people with big money, high positions and power to take the lead, though they could and must play a part in this. More likely it’s going to be the work of tens of millions of people growing in awareness, making different choices, influencing public policy, and inventing fresh approaches to a just, compassionate, and sustainable world, one by one; moment by moment.
