RESOURCES/ACTIVISM

These compassionate resources advance holistic transformation -- even though none are fully and explicitly committed to that goal. The codes in each column indicate the following characteristics of each organization as explicitly reflected in the principal goals they report on their website:

  • Hol: Holistic - addresses the whole person, the whole society, and the whole world by explicitly nurturing global, systemic, personal, social, cultural, and political change.

  • Glo: Global - adopts a global perspective and engagement.

  • Sys: Systemic - adopts a focus on reforming our social system.

  • Per: Personal - supports a commitment to open-ended self-development.

  • Soc: Social - encourages the growth of communities whose members support one another in their open-ended self-development.

  • Cul: Cultural - nurtures compassionate attitudes, values, goals, beliefs, and behavior.

  • Pol: Political — Organizes compassionate efforts to improve political structures, laws, and/or policies.

NOTE: Please notify us concerning possible additions to this list. This website encourages the development of fully holistic projects (as defined above). So far we haven't discovered any. For further consideration, see Goals.
