This year more than ever, we have seen drastic examples of people acting from their insecure thinking, believing that circumstances require such actions. If ever the world was ripe for a different way to handle emotions, conflicts and traumas, now is the time.
Imagine a world where solutions were not handed down by others, but arose from the collective wisdom of the very communities themselves. In Modello, Lakewood, Des Moines, and other communities where people have begun to see their innate wisdom and resilience, we have seen that happen. YOU can help make that happen locally and globally!
This past year, your generosity has allowed us to craft virtual programs to engage Principles-grounded followers across the globe in learning how to bring the Principles to their own communities by:Read more
Recent occurrences in Charlottesville, removing statues, government outbursts and fractured global relationships weigh heavy on our hearts. Hegemonic "isms" reflect ignorance, wreaking exclusion. Such behaviors indicate a disconnection from our innate well-being. I've been thinking about how a 3P understanding cultivates unity. Thus, as a Collaborate Associate, my project with Center for Sustainable Change is to facilitate a webinar focused on diversity and our common self-identity.Read more

Michael Neill presented a wonderful Ted Talk entitled "Why Aren't We More Awesomer?" For CSC the answer might be because YOU are not participating in The Awesome Event. If you are participating, we will definitely be "More Awesomer."
How could you miss this Event? This is the first Three Principles Event where people from all over the world, utilizing the principles to create transformational and sustainable change in their own communities, will gather to share their experiences and learn from others. This includes YOU who – having gained even a glimmer of the inside-out nature of life – is sharing that understanding through your life and the way you now "see" the world.Read more
Have you been part of a child's life? Have you watched YouTube videos to see how to do something? Have you helped a colleague figure something out? Have you given directions? Have you mentored someone? Have you helped a teenager learn to drive, or operate a piece of equipment, or use tools? Have you trained a pet? Have you helped someone new get to know your neighborhood? Have you contemplated a scene, and simply wondered?
There are so many ways to ask the questions, but there is one answer. We are all teachers. We teach ourselves. We teach others. We explore, explain, discover, share... The simple definition of teacher — one who helps to learn — defines our experience of growing through life.
Official "teachers" — those who work in schools — carry the burden of imparting the core knowledge of civilization, but we all share the opportunity to expand and enhance that knowledge and engage in lifelong teaching and learning. Fundamentally, the truths that guide the best experiences of teaching and learning in school settings are universal, explaining how our minds and others' minds function optimally across all of life.
We have put together a series of courses for teachers, using the metaphors and examples of school because school is something we all share. The courses point to the explanation of how our minds work, and how we access the innate source of wisdom, insight, common sense, creativity and joyful learning common to us all.
If you've noticed "Resiliency in Teaching" as a CSC offering, and been curious about it but perhaps thought it didn't have anything to do with you, we'd like you to reconsider.Read more
