The project draws inspiration from local sacred circles popularly referred to as the Mandala which means "Sacred Circle" in Sanskrit, the ancient language of India. Existing in almost all of the world's traditions, the circle has been a medium for integration and seeing all things as whole, interconnected elements. Using the mandala as medium, process, and message, valuable earth wisdom coming from the local culture and practice are applied to the existing conditions that need solutions and actions.
The CC’s purpose is to support and empower communities in tapping existing knowledge, capacities and resources to address existing ecological, social, and/or political conditions. Transformational community actions are designed using integral, innovative, and whole systems design and approach. Through shared earth stories, the project hopes to derive collective wisdom that holds space for Earth Wisdom to be remembered, explored, translated, and most importantly - applied to some of the pressing issues humanity and the earth face today in relation to conflict, ecological degradation, and climate change related disasters. At this moment CC members are working on the following projects: Earth Wisdom Circle, Kites for Peace, Seed Story Project, Living Library Project, Project Rainbow, Cocoon Dream Lab, and Inner Climate Change. Something outstanding about these projects is that they are all accompanied by wonderful partners.
