"Citizens for Global Solutions, a grassroots membership organization, envisions a future in which nations work together to abolish war, protect our rights and freedoms, and solve the problems facing humanity that no nation can solve alone. We invite you to work with us on our campaigns to promote the International Criminal Court, reform United Nations peace operations, and encourage our government to adopt a multilateral foreign policy that emphasizes cooperation with international institutions and our allies."

Citizens for a United Earth
Citizens for a United Earth is a group of volunteers in the area of Rochester, NY, who want a peaceful, sustainable, prosperous future for all the world's people. We believe the time has come for global citizenship, with people aware of their interdependence with others all over the world.

Civitatis International
Civitatis is a diverse non profit international research center that addresses issues from the perspective that the individual citizen is the primary sovereign unit in international society and that this basis is the key to understanding the many issues challenging the international system today.

Democratic World Government
Within any nation, the choice is between government (meaning the rule of law) and anarchy (the "law of the jungle"), and no serious person would choose anarchy. Governments are either democratic or dictatorial, and given a voice in the matter, the people of every nation will choose democracy, almost unanimously. These two statements are also true for the world as a whole. Without a world government to make world laws, nations will just continue to make wars, and terrorists will continue to kill innocent people. With nuclear, chemical and biological weapons in the mix, a World War III may well destroy all life on Earth. At some level, most people already know all these things, but they think they are helpless to change them. Now there is a credible plan of action, a plan that is already being carried out.

Earth Rights Institute
Earth Rights Institute is dedicated to securing a culture of peace and justice by establishing dynamic worldwide networks of persons of goodwill and special skill, promoting policies and programs which further democratic rights to common heritage resources, and building ecological communities.

Globalizing Peace, Justice Sustainability, Prosperity
The Simultaneous Policy is a peaceful political strategy to democratically drive all the world's nations to apply global solutions to global problems, including combating global warming and environmental destruction, regulating economic globalization for the good of all, and delivering social justice, peace and security, and sustainable prosperity.

Pax 2100
The goal is the economic, political, and social wellness of all individuals, cultures, and nations in a global framework which makes this possible. This means a form of human organization which assures each individual peace, justice, the right of retaining cultural identity, fair access to the earth's resources, health care, education, the right and opportunity to work, freedom of speech, religion, and to move freely around the world, and the right to participate in its governance.

Peace One Day
The Peace One Day (POD) film project began as the vision of one man, British filmmaker, Jeremy Gilley. Launched in September 1999, POD gained active support from all sectors of society, from governments through to individuals. In September 2001, POD achieved its primary objective. A United Nations General Assembly resolution (A/Res/55/282), put forward by the UK and Costa Rican governments, was unanimously adopted by all UN member states, formally establishing an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace, fixed in the global calendar on 21 September - Peace Day. All sectors of society are being asked to honour and celebrate the Day on 21 September. The vision of the Day extends far beyond the cessation of violent conflict and represents an opportunity for individuals to join in a moment of global unity.

Sapiens is an international movement of people and organizations working to establish a democratically elected World Governing Authority by the democratization of existing international bodies (particularly the UN) or by the creation of completely new democratic bodies such as the e-parliament.

United Nations
Today, nearly every nation in the world belongs to the UN: membership totals 191 countries. When States become Members of the United Nations, they agree to accept the obligations of the UN Charter, an international treaty that sets out basic principles of international relations. The United Nations is not a world government and it does not make laws. It does, however, provide the means to help resolve international conflicts and formulate policies on matters affecting all of us. At the UN, all the Member States - large and small, rich and poor, with differing political views and social systems - have a voice and a vote in this process.

We, The World
"Our purpose is to maximize social change on a global scale to create cultures of peace and environmental well-being for a world that works for all. We hope you will join us in this endeavor!"

World Beyond Borders
In the Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace, John Perry Barlow wrote of "a world all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth." We are not content to have this world exist only in cyberspace. We seek to make the real world a place without borders... o where people recognize each other's common humanity and celebrate both cultural diversity and our fundamental unity; o where everybody's basic needs are met in ways that allow all of us to thrive; o where war has been abolished and conflicts are resolved through political and legal means; o and where our loyalties to our planet and the human species come before national loyalties. These goals can all be accomplished through the establishment of a democratic global government.

World Citizen Foundation
"The World Citizen Foundation is a nonprofit nonpartisan think-tank dedicated to the design of solutions to international problems based on the fundamental principles of equal human dignity, liberty, democracy and constitutionally protected basic rights of all."

World Citizen News

World Federalist Movement
"An international citizens' movement working for justice, peace, and sustainable prosperity. We call for an end to the rule of force, through a world governed by law, based on strengthened and democratized world institutions. We are inspired by the democratic principles of federalism." One World Trust "The One World Trust was formed 50 years ago by the All-Party Group for World Government to promote a greater sense of world community. The Trust believes that sustainable world peace, prosperity and justice will only be achieved when individuals see themselves as world citizens as well as citizens of their own nations."

World Government Web

THE WORLD - universally outgoing, conceptually unbounded, the planet dynamically, synergistically and organically one with itself and the cosmos. CITIZENSHIP - the restrictive rights and duties within a given social structure. The two words together seem paradoxical. "You can educate either the citizen or the man," wrote Thoreau. Yet in their union lies the potential success of the human species; in their non-union lies the demise of a fatally flawed creature which could not overcome its self-imposed global anarchy.

The Global Spiral is the winner of a 2007 American Graphic Design Award from Graphic Design USA.

The Global Spiral is a monthly online magazine dedicated to the mission and vision of Metanexus Institute. Metanexus is a not-for-profit organization that promotes transdisciplinary research into profound questions of human meaning and purpose with the aim of transforming our educational, religious, and civic institutions.

The present moment, with its ever-accelerating technological development, instantaneous global communication, and unprecedented interaction among cultures, presents remarkable possibilities for enhancing the common good. However, despite the increase in the quantity and diversity of our knowledge, our understanding of ourselves and our world is becoming ever more fragmented. This fragmentation lies at the root of many of the current threats to our well-being and the well-being of our planet.

The Global Spiral addresses this problem by offering transformative, transdisciplinary content that is not just about the life of the mind, but about paying mind to the whole of life. We do this through…
· Incisive articles written by scholars whose thought transcends disciplinary divisions
· Penetrating book reviews
· Original works of art that expand our understanding of foundational questions
· Current news and events from Metanexus network partners around the globe
· Engaging Interviews with luminary scholars
· Multimedia downloads

Our main areas of exploration include:
· "Science and Religion dialogue" as symptom of the fragmentation of knowledge
· The rediscovery and retrieval of human meaning and purpose
· Navigating the clash of civilizations and cultures through transdisciplinary scholarship and dialogue
· New possibilities for metaphysics
· The urgency of authenticity
· The self, soul, and personhood
· Nature and Humanity
· Faith and Reason
The Institute for Responsible Technology is organizing a major program with the natural food industry. Although this will be the subject of an entirely new website soon, here is a preview of the campaign.
Healthy Eating Means No GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms)

You may have heard that genetically modified (GM) foods are safe, properly tested, and necessary to feed a hungry world. UNTRUE! Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are one of the most dangerous and radical changes in our food ever. These largely unregulated ingredients are in 60-70% of the foods in the US, but are well worth efforts to avoid them. This is the first in a series of articles that exposes the serious risks of the GMOs on our plates and farms, and helps you to feed your family a healthier "non-GMO" diet. Fortunately, health-conscious retailers, distributors, manufacturers and growers are now participating in The Campaign for Healthier Eating in America, which will eliminate GMOs from thousands of products. This will make it easier for you and may even end the genetic engineering of the entire US food supply.

This industry-wide rejection of GMOs can be achieved by a "tipping point," in which a sufficient number of shoppers in the US avoiding GM ingredients force the major food companies to stop using them. Europe reached the tipping point in April 1999 and within a single week, virtually all major manufacturers publicly committed to stop using GM ingredients in their European brands. This consumer-led revolt against GMOs in the EU was generated by a February 1999 media firestorm after a top GMO safety researcher, Dr. Arpad Pusztai, was "ungagged by Parliament" and able to tell this alarming story to the press.

Dr. Pusztai was the world's top researcher in his field and a senior researcher at the prestigious Rowett Institute in Scotland. He had been working on a UK government grant to design long-term testing protocols that were intended to become part of the official European GM food safety assessment process. But when Pusztai fed supposedly harmless GM to rats, they developed potentially pre-cancerous cell growth, smaller brains, livers and testicles, partially atrophied livers, and a damaged immune system. Moreover, the results clearly indicated that the cause of the problem was due to the unpredictable side effects arising from the process of genetic engineering itself. In other words, it suggested that the GM foods already on the market, which were created from the same process, might also create such effects. When expressed his concern he was fired from his job after 35 years and silenced with threats of a lawsuit, his 20 member research team was disbanded, the testing protocols were abandoned, and the pro-GM establishment embarked on an extensive disinformation campaign to discredit the study's results and protect the reputation of GM foods. But when an invitation to testify before Parliament allowed Pusztai to finally tell his story, all hell broke loose. The outpouring of news coverage, said to one columnist, "divided society into two warring blocs" over the GM food issue. The tipping point was reached quickly thanks to the buying power of consumers that convinced manufacturers to keep GMOs out of the EU, in spite of official approvals by the pro-GM European Commission.

Post Carbon Institute
The mission of Post Carbon Institute is to assist communities in the effort to Relocalize and adapt to an energy constrained world.
Post Carbon Institute is a think, action and education tank offering research, project tools, education and information to implement proactive strategies to adapt to an energy constrained world. The development of Post Carbon Institute came out of concern for the environmental, social, political and economic ramifications of global over-reliance on cheap energy.

Our main response to these concerns is the strategy of Relocalization, which aims to rebuild societies based on the local production of food and energy, and the Relocalization of currency, governance and culture. The main goals of Relocalization are to increase community energy security, strengthen local economies, and dramatically improve environmental conditions and social equity.

PK:336998~pagePK:149018~piPK:149093~theSitePK:336992,00.html is a site devoted to promoting the advancement of worldcentric consciousness. The mass movement of this global awareness can trace its origin to the earlier photographs taken of our planet. (The one featured in the animation above on the Earth Flag was taken in 1972) Because of the growing momentum of this coherent and more encompassing perspective, it is absurd to think that within a hundred years or even fifty years from now we will still be living with our current imbalanced world order of ecological crisis and anarchy between nuclear armed nation states. It is more likely we will begin learning to live together as one united people or our species will enter a new dark age to become decimated by world wars and environmental catastrophe. If we want a sustainable and livable future, we must continue working towards a united world for ourselves and the generations that proceed us.


Can we permanently stop
terrorism and war?
If 50 demonstration projects and 23 published scientific studies can be believed, the answer is Yes.
If this large body of evidence-accepted and published by mainstream scientific journals-is accurate, groups of peace-creating experts can dramatically reduce violent crime, terrorism, and war.
If the scientific process is meaningful, ancient sages were correct about the peace-creating power of human consciousness. Modern science and timeless wisdom have come together in a practical, powerful technology of peace.

The Intenders of the Highest Good
The Intenders of the Highest Good show you how to set your intention to have that which you desire come to you as easily and effortlessly as possible. We have rediscovered a simple method of empowerment that we call The Intention Process which is making all of our dreams come true. We understand that our desires are in us to be fulfilled and that our thoughts create our world. We support and help one another to become as clear as possible in our words and our thoughts so that we can live our lives to the fullest.
The Institute for Research on Unlimited Love was founded in June of 2001 with a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation. Sir John was kind enough to allow the Institute to borrow its name from his book entitled Pure Unlimited Love: An Eternal Creative Force and Blessing Taught by All Religions (2000). Throughout his life Sir John has urged all religions to think of God primarily in terms of Unlimited Love for all persons without exception, and he has proposed a "humility theology" in which we recognize how very little we really do know about spiritual realities. Deeply concerned with the ways in which human arrogance and group egoism can lead to religious violence, Sir John has proposed that we acknowledge how little we know, and that we draw on the best methods of science to gradually help us gain insights into the great perennial questions that animate spiritual and religious belief and practice. Often, Sir John has suggested that progress will come from learning as much as we possibly can about such things as gratitude, joy, purpose, optimism, forgiveness, creativity, awe, unselfish giving, altruism and love. And in particular, he has asked us to study deeply about love as the Ultimate Reality of all existence and of all human goodness.



A Plea For a Change of Discourse
Frank Visser
My 25 years of involvement with Ken Wilber and his work have been quite a story. Let's take them decade by decade. It is a story of discovery, meeting, creativity, debate and distancing.

The Eighties: Years of Discovery
It is not difficult to initially be impressed by Ken Wilber's writings. Even his strongest critics have gone through that phase.
Back in 1982 I had just started my university studies (psychology of religion) after a trip to India (Poona), and found the academic treatment of the subject quite a hard landing. After I stumbled on Wilber's book No Boundary it immediately piqued my interest. His subsequent books were what I call a "second education", in parallel with my academic pursuits.

Especially The Atman Project (and it's companion volume Up from Eden) grabbed my attention. It outlined a path to Spirit, both in individual development and cultural history, and integrated a lot of material in the process. In subsequent years, I absorbed Wilber's books one by one, and was especially longing to see the announced two-volume transpersonal psychology handbook System, Self and Structure in print. I even secretly thought I could, with the help of that handbook, straighten out my fellow academics on the subject of psychology, spirituality and mysticism.
About the Initiative
World Peace-the healing of the world-is achieved through a very simple principle: We Create Peace By Being Peace. It is this universal truth that has inspired the Peace Every Day Initiative, a global, collective, daily, meditation of peace. The purpose is to unite a minimum of 8,000 people, while holding the vision of 144,000 or more people, to meditate/pray by becoming the vibration of peace for 40 minutes or more each day, individually and especiallly in groups. Any time of day is effective, though sunrise or sunset are powerful nodal times. This powerful thought-form of peace is enough to shift the global consciousness so that we may fully celebrate peace on earth!

Launching the Initiative
The Peace Every Day Initiative was launched on November 8, 2003 at sunset. This was the time of an astrological Harmonic Concordance. The concordance is a lunar eclipse and a six planet configuration in the shape of the Star of David which is said to accelerate the healing of karma, heal the waters of the planet, heal the ecosystem, elevate consciousness, and harmonize male and female into sacred relationship, a subtle relationship which supports people in living in the Divine Presence. It is an accelerated opportunity for humans to work collectively to enhance the transformation of the planet.

Global Prayer Project
Prayer, Meditation & Discussion with James & Salle Redfield is evolving a collaborative social network that orchestrates, monitors, and validates the effectiveness of peace-engendering events, such as local and global meditations and prayers, peace concerts and dances, and other practices.
The Culture of Peace Initiative is a United Nations-designated "Peace Messenger Initiative" with participants in all the world's regions. The annual highlight day of the Culture of Peace Initiative is the International Day of Peace, September 21.

What is the GaiaField Project?
Many people intuitively recognize the power of uniting millions of people from diverse spiritual traditions around the globe in meditation and prayer for peace.

Several well-organized global meditation and prayer events, such as the Harmonic Convergence of 1987, the GaiaMind meditation of 1997, James Twyman's "Great Experiments" and the annual International Day of Peace Vigil have involved hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people. Numerous research studies have documented consistent, significant correlations between the presence of large groups of meditators and improvements in social indicators such as crime rates, war deaths, and terrorist activity. Many spiritual leaders and visionary thinkers have hypothesized that these global rituals for peace may accelerate the emergence of a unified global consciousness.

The vision of the GaiaField Project is to support the emergence of a large, resilient, multi-hub network of spiritual leaders and their constituencies who will regularly participate in and co-create large-scale global meditation and prayer vigils. Our aim is not so much to set up another new global meditation network, but to facilitate the sharing of information and resources between the many existing networks which share the goal of bringing together hundreds of thousands of people in meditation or prayer for world peace. Our strategy involves upgrading this website ( to incorporate state-of-the-art web broadcasting, mapping, and social networking technology to more easily organize events, connect peacemakers with each other, and enhance participants' sense of interconnection during events. (This current website is a placeholder for the interactive website still in development.) Our strategy also includes convening face-to-face meetings with relevant spiritual leaders and organizing annual live or online gatherings for leaders.

The GaiaField Project is currently a joint project of the California Institute of Integral Studies and Wisdom Mountain, both of which are non-profit organizations based in Northern California. For more information, please contact Project Director David Nicol at For more information about the people behind the Gaiafield Project.
Children of the Sun is a global platform assisting in the transformation of world consciousness through the Unified Field of Higher Consciousness. As Ambassadors of Light, we serve as the bridge between dimensional realities.

The Planetary Grid Transmissions

Every New and Full Moon …throughout 2008

Program Description
The Crystalline Grid is powerfully reactivating as part of the New Earth template. This planetary grid is our new foundation and a spiritual "telecommunications system" to help us connect and remain connected to the higher consciousness of humans all over the world.

By consciously aligning with and connecting to the Crystalline Grid on a regular basis, we strengthen our ability to receive and transmit higher dimensional energies... as one synergistic beam of Love and transforming energy. Children of the Sun is putting out the call to people around the world to join this influential matrix and expanding forcefield of light.

This is a massive support system during this period of increased intensity in the Earth's restructuring process. One of the main uses of this highly advanced crystalline structure is to bring stabilization and balance to our and the Earth's processes. It also profoundly assists us in developing skills of higher consciousness. This includes the higher sense perception such as telepathy, clairaudience, clairvoyance, receiving and decoding the languages of light, multidimensional communications, to name a few. These are very important skills for the now times.

The Transmissions

The grid transmissions take place every new and full moon. These regular transmissions shower amplified infusions of light to assist in our personal transformation and as that is divinely aligned. As a forcefield, this amplified field supports each of us in releasing the old and embodying the new. We unite and link our collective Light in a purified, highly tuned geometric field. This unified geometric field is also know as Group Merkaba.
Important to Build the Grid Networks

Serving as crystalline human portals and an extension of this powerful network, we each receive and transmit these new Earth energies to and from our intimate sphere of influence and the geographic locations in which we live. It is very important that we focus on building our own networks of light on this grid matrix. This is to help your friends, family and those closest to you. As we are all linked, what occurs in our field also affects those in our intimate sphere. The networks also empower and expand the matrix into greater fields of mass unification.
With aligned intent, we can accelerate transformation into specific areas of the world especially those affected by the planetary shift. In these times of tremendous change, we are assured of this unified forcefield and giant support system to be in place, every new and full moon without fail.

Everyone is inspired to build their own networks of Light. We are also calling forth participation from people who anchor light energy at sacred sites and specific geographical areas of strong crystalline energy. These are the "central power stations" of the grid across the globe. These places of centralized power hold a high concentrated level of crystalline energy, purified frequencies and are the massive energy fields used to support this grid matrix. Human representatives from these areas help to optimize the transmission process.

How it Works
The transmissions will occur over a full 24 hour period on each day of the new and full moon.

Unified Meditation will take place during 3 world times:
Paris, France 8 p.m.
Sydney, Australia 8 p.m.
New York, USA 9 p.m.

During this day, you may choose to go into meditation, connect to the grid and simply receive. If you have built a network or desire to assist with the unified planetary focus, you can also serve as a crystalline human portal in both receiving and transmitting.

We would like to emphasize the importance of placing conscious focus on building your luminous body of Light, our vehicle of ascension that transports us into the higher dimensional system of new Earth energy. The more that this crystalline body is developed and activated, the more easily you can connect into the planetary grid and cosmic hologram of Love.

The Flower of Life Research organization was created to disseminate the teachings of the merkaba, sacred geometry, (as originally presented by Drunvalo Melchizedek) as well as the opening of the heart. We also provide methods to integrate the left brain (mind) and the right brain (heart/feeling/intuition) into a fluid understanding of the cosmos that is not only intellectually understood but also tangibly experienced. These teachings help inspire individuals to remember who they really are and to find the courage to expand beyond their limited views of themselves. Each human has a unique talent which, when discovered, nurtured, and truly lived, changes our own personal world. By living that pure true self beyond our limited beliefs, we slowly change the world around us into an experience of higher intention, greater freedom and possibility.

Have you ever wished that you could FEEL your connection to the universe rather than just visualize it? Through our teachings of sacred geometry, we introduce the student to ancient esoteric teachings given around the world for thousands of years. These teachings, based on sacred geometry, illustrate for the left brain how there is truly only one consciousness, one spirit, one God, and that we are all part of that oneness. After the mind understands this concept, we then teach the student a 17-breath merkaba meditation that will allow he or she to feel and experience this unity of all life. The left and right brains suddenly awaken to this universal truth and the heart begins to put this truth into action.

The cooperative planning that emerges from the meeting tends to last for years.

Circle Work
One of the simplest, most ancient, and profound methods for helping to elicit a group's collective intelligence is the practice of people sitting in a circle listening deeply and speaking from the heart. The circle format encourages a focus on dialogue - people learning and exploring together in an open-ended way - rather than on getting through an agenda or completing tasks. Many circles invite in the presence of the sacred through a simple ritual of lighting a candle or taking a few minutes of silence to begin the meeting. As Tom Atlee (founder of the Co-Intelligence Institute) says, "Even the simplest, most unsophisticated circles are experienced as revolutionary by people who've known little more than the hectic, banal, adversarial or repressed communication modes typical of our mainstream culture."

Leading social change networks and organizations who have adopted the circle format as a central practice.

They work with neighborhoods, cities and towns, states, school districts, schools, and college campuses, paying particular attention to the racial and ethnic dimensions of the problems they address. Study circles are small, diverse groups of 8-12 people who meet together in the spirit of dialogue and deliberation for several two-hour sessions. They aim to connect deliberative dialogue with social, political, and policy change.

The Simple Living Network: Simplicity Circles (
Simplicity Circles are small groups of people who gather together to support each other to simplify their lives. Hundreds of Simplicity Circles have formed as part of the burgeoning Voluntary Simplicity movement involving tens of thousands of people around the world. Simplicity Circles are usually organized around the principles outlined in a book by Cecile Andrews, The Circle of Simplicity: Return to the Good Life (HarperCollins, 1997).

Peace X Peace: Connecting Women for Peace (
Peace X Peace connects women's circles in the United States with women's Circles everywhere in the world - directly via the Internet - for the exchange of information and personal experiences that typically result in mutually supportive actions. Their internet-based Global Network facilitates direct online communication between women-led circles across the US and Sister Circles around the world.

Circles of Ten: Women for world peace (
Women for world peace create support groups for women focused on nonviolent, solution-directed, social change and experiential, educational, peace circles that promote peacemaking activism locally and internationally.

"Up there in the immensity of the Cosmos, an inescapable perception awaits us. National boundaries are not evident when we view the Earth from space. Fanatical ethnic, religious or national chauvinisms are a little difficult to maintain when we see our planet as a fragile blue crescent fading to become an inconspicuous point of light against the bastion and citadel of the stars." - Carl Sagan

"I would like to enroll you in building a chapel open to all humanity for initiation into the miracle of being alive." - Alex Grey


Star Trek has inspired a vision of our future in which humanity is united. Because the Earth's resources aren't sapped by weapons for wars waged between nation states, vast reserves of energy have been freed up, allowing humanity to end poverty and explore space. This popular science fiction series has helped spread a world centric view of humanity; that there is a higher authority in which we owe our allegiance, beyond the limited nationalism of the nation state.


Star Wars presents us with an endearing cosmopolitan archetype; aliens and humans forging close friendships, spiritual bonds and alliances even when they speak different languages and look vastly different from one another. It also makes us think about religion in a universalist perspective. Do alien beings on far off worlds worship the same Gods that our great religions offer us? Or perhaps there is something more like the Force, binding all life in all galaxies together towards one common destiny.

Stop Divine Strake

"Divine Strake" is the name given to the planned military test explosion of a 700-ton ammonium nitrate-fuel oil bomb that was originally scheduled to be detonated at the Nevada Test Site on June 2, 2006. What is the purpose of Divine Strake? One of the main purposes of the "Divine Strake" test, if not the only one, is to use a large conventional high explosive charge to simulate the effect of a low yield nuclear weapon. Early Department of Defense budget documents described the Divine Strake test as a demonstration intended to '...simulate a low yield nuclear weapon ground shock environment...,' and as part of a planning tool to '...improve the warfighter's confidence in selecting the smallest proper nuclear yield necessary to destroy underground facilities...'

Unitary Perception

"Enlightenment is essentially being aware that all human beings are one."

Sacred Sites
Since prehistoric times, sacred places have exerted a mysterious attraction on billions of people around the world. Ancient legends and modern day reports tell of extraordinary things that have happened to people while visiting these places. Different sacred sites have the power to heal the body, enlighten the mind, increase creativity, develop psychic abilities, and awaken the soul to a knowing of its true purpose in life. While contemporary science cannot explain - and therefore disregards - the seemingly miraculous phenomena which occurs at the holy places, they continue to be the most venerated and visited locations on planet earth. What is the key to the mystery of the sacred sites and how are we to explain their power?

Explorer-anthropologist Martin Gray has spent twenty years as a wandering pilgrim visiting, studying and photographing over 1000 sacred sites in 80 countries around the world. To share his insights and photographs with a wide audience, Martin gives presentations at museums, universities and conferences throughout the United States, South America and Europe. Based upon extensive scholarly knowledge and his own mystical experiences at the sacred sites, Martin offers a fascinating discussion of the mythology and anthropology of pilgrimage places and a radical explanation of the miraculous phenomena that occurs at the sites. Featuring hundreds of beautiful photographs, Martin's slide shows are a magical blend of art, history and travel adventure, shamanism, inspiration and spiritual ecology.

The places illustrated throughout his web sites are a selection of those shown in Martin's slide shows. Each of the photographs featured here are accompanied with information on the archaeology, mythology and significance of the sites.

Initiative Emanzipation ad Humanum

Having in mind Life in Peace and Creative Conviviality this three-lingual
initiative since 1999 pursues a double-fold strategy to make the realisation
of that goal become a completely natural purpose in life for ever more
people. The first approach is illustrated by the attempt to empower fellow
human beings to live according to their autonomous personal perception.

Aiming further and deeper towards the common ground of life conventional concepts are redefined in order to break mental walls which brings alternative and more authentic understanding into sight.

The second approach is to set free synergy of human potential by
enlightening dialogue in email exchange of ideas, in internet discussions
and in personal meetings... It is us normal people who have to
stop corporate governance and national security doctrines from jeopardising
existence of Life.

Dr. Wolfgang Fischer, Saentisstr. 24, D- 81825 Munich
