An Inner-Leadership Symposium

for the

Rise of a New Earth Community

The Cosmos, Gaia and Spirit Symposium uses an integrative view, providing an opportunity for individuals to identify and actualize their Great Work or Cosmic Calling. Attending this three-day retreat is a meta-preparation for people wanting to explore:

In what ways might heart-wisdom unify your sense of being and belonging?

What context might lead to a deeper understanding of “all is one?”

What wisdom do you acquire through awareness that the Earth is alive and that you are an integral part of its process?

What core content and process allows one to be inspired for self-learning, self-discovery and personal transformation?

What methods help you to center yourself in order to sustain your vision?

In what ways does your relationship to Gaia, Cosmos and Eros evolve? How does it benefit the whole?

What is the source of your wisdom-knowledge for right-living?

In what ways might deeper meaning and expanded consciousness emerge?

Awakening the Legacies

Inspired by his 40 years as a Montessori educator and his understanding of the deeper implications for her contributions, as well as the wisdom-teachings of Thomas Berry for the birth of a new Earth community, Philip Snow Gang has created these symposia to help individuals align their higher aspirations for a sustainable future.

Maria Montessori

As servants of the child, teachers can only help the great work that is being done. Doing so, they will be witness to the unfolding of the human soul and to the rising of a New Human who will not be the victim of events, but will have the clarity of vision to direct and shape the future of human society.

(Education for a New World, 1946)

Thomas Berry

Our educational institutions need to see their purpose not as training personnel for exploiting the Earth but as guiding students toward an intimate relationship with the Earth. For it is the planet itself that brings us into being, sustains us in life and delights us with its wonders. In this context we might consider the intellectual, political, and economic orientations that will enable us… to establish a more viable way into the future.

(The Great Work, 1999)
