"By transforming our consciousness we participate in the transformation of the world."
- Robert Thurman
Healing the Planet and the Whole Earth Community
We live at a critical moment in the history of Earth. Ecological challenges make headlines daily, threatening the well-being of humans and the planet that sustains us in being. At La Vista, we believe that at the root of these challenges lies our spirituality. We provide programs that encourage eco-spirituality, recognizing the Sacred present throughout the 13.7 billion year story of the Universe. This spirituality offers a global vision of planetary unity based on the sacred story of the Universe.
There are many ways you can participate in transforming your consciousness and aligning yourself with the healing of our planet and the whole Earth community:
• Spend 19 minutes viewing "The Overview Effect" on vimeo. For more than 40 years, astronauts from many cultures have been telling us that their perspective on Earth from space has awakened the kind of vision one needs for a healthy future for our planet. This short online movie shares pictures and words from astronauts and others, allowing each of us to have this sacred experience. Please take time to enjoy this presentation
