Spirituality and Environment

Theme: Transformation of Innerself (Spiritual) for the transformation of the External World (Environment)

Our Vision

To understand the need for finding solutions to all environmental problems through inner transformation as world is a projection of our own minds and the external environment is only a reflection of the environment within ourselves.

We welcome all the environmental and spiritual gurus and scientists and all those interested in the preservation of the environment and sustainable green planet.

The main objective is to initiate an action that emerges from deep awakening of wisdom and compassion for nature that occurs through inner transformation and realization of our universal inter-connectedness with each other and with the planet. This will lead to finding new long term solutions to support sustainable life style that can help mitigate and minimize the environmental degradation.

We invite all the presenters to show case different ways and means and strategies to achieve this goal.
