I am deeply moved by the living fire of Sacred Activism with the key voice, teacher and light in this emerging consciousness, Andrew Harvey. He has founded the Institute for Sacred Activism to implement a vision for "a new world founded in universal compassion and sacred passion for all life". (www.andrewharvey.net) My experience of sacred activism began when I was 17 and spent a year and a half doing volunteer work in Kenya before I went to college. That experience has transformed my life as well as the incredible teachers that I have met on the path and beautiful people who are serving life in small and extraordinary ways. I bow to your heart. I bow to the transformation of suffering and the re-birth of a green culture for the future.

My personal sacred activism projects have been quietly gaining momentum. Through God's grace and the power of community much can be accomplished with joy, steady focus and the spirit of service. Since 2007, We have planted over 350,000 trees through Trees for the Future and the Global Mala Project now happens in over 50 countries with over 800 events around the world for the Fall Equinox weekend, UN International Peace Day. Let us all become Energy Activists and commit to move towards non-toxic fuel sources our bodies and the earth, consciousness and the earth. Thank you for your unwavering spirit.

For 2016, we will be supporting SolarAid

SolarAid has pledged to get a clean light into every home in Africa by 2020.

A solar lamp does more than shine a light. A solar lamp protects the environment and transforms lives.

598 million off-grid Africans have no access to electricity and many rely on toxic kerosene for lighting. These brutal lamps emit noxious black smoke and burn up to 20% of the household income - locking millions into poverty. By contrast solar lights cost as little as $10, pay for themselves after 12 weeks and last for five years. Having free, clean light and not wasting money on kerosene transforms peoples’ chances in life. We have taken on the challenge of getting these lights to the people that need them most and aim to get a clean light into every home in Africa by the end of the decade.

Every $10 donation gets a light to a school in Africa.  Help us support SolarAid here.
