When faced with challenges, either personal or global, what helps us face the mess we're in is the knowledge that each of us has something significant to offer. However, in rising to the challenge, we are often encouraged to revise our way of thinking.

e-sustainability-image2The loss of humanity’s spirituality and original value system has led to unsustainable patterns of living. Regaining balance and harmony in our world requires a reawakening of human consciousness, whereby ‘hot heads and cold hearts’ are transformed into ‘cool heads and warm hearts’.
