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’. Spirituality is living a life based on inner guiding principles - a life which naturally embraces the wellbeing of the individual, the family, the community and the world.

The Brahma Kumaris in Australia are offering retreats to discuss this (August and September 2014, in the Blue Mountains and Melbourne) with special guests selected from: Dr Haydn Washington, Janet O'Sullivan, Julian Crawford and Kris Schaffer.
