The Institute For Global Transformation created a global network for Change-Makers and Transformational Conversations, conversations designed to mindfully and creatively explore self, our global challenges and the exciting possibilities for building a better world in the 21st Century.
As Change-Makers, we are pioneers in a new mainstream, millions strong, that now exists worldwide.
Dianne Collins refers to this new group as the Consciousness Crowd. She says: "Millions of people the world over are part of The New Mainstream. It is defined neither by generation, by politico credo, nor by religious creed. The New Mainstream is defined by recognition that we are in a time of awakening to a new mindset, an expanded worldview and yes, a higher-level consciousness for humanity. The New Mainstream is defined by a cosmic pulse of awakening."
This vast group shares a sense of the connectedness of all things. They see themselves as bridge builders. They have deep concerns regarding the environment, economics, social issues, and relationships between people, communities and nations. As a result, they view the world through a radically different lens - a way of seeing that steps out of right and wrong and black and white thinking.
If you consider yourself a Change-Makers, we invite you to become part of our team and help us transform the world. Before responding, please be sure to go to our website at www.ifgt.org and read through our articles, etc. to be sure you are in alignment with our philosophy.
