The WorldShift Network

Logo: WorldShift NetworkOn the 12th of June 2007, Ervin Laszlo’s 75th birthday, the Club of Budapest WorldShift Network was established as an international foundation. The purpose of the foundation is to connect the many organizations and individuals throughout the world who are presently working for a values-based holistic civilization and to strengthen their effectiveness.

The WorldShift Network focuses on six topics taken as organic components of an ongoing change of consciousness:

  1. Unity of Humanity and Nature (shifting from domination to unity)
  2. Global Subsistence Economy (shifting from exploitation to sustainability)
  3. Salutogenesis (shifting from disease control to the safeguarding of health)
  4. Global Wisdom Culture (shifting from ego-centered knowledge to holistic wisdom)
  5. Participative Civil Society (shifting from domination to participation)
  6. Planetary Peace and Freedom (shifting from separation to community)

The WorldShift Alliance

The WorldShift Alliance is to serve as a “mega-network” of like-minded individuals and organizations actively addressing our shared societal and ecological challenges and opportunities. The Alliance’s broad mission is: To effectively address humanity’s growing challenges and opportunities with new thinking and actions in sufficient time to adapt to rapidly changing world conditions.

Through a multifaceted “web community” the WorldShift Alliance is to bring the various sectors of society and the diverse cultures of the human family together with the thousands of individuals and groups who are actively working for a better world. It is to function as a worldwide community of global citizens and forward-thinking organizations who can together shift the human future to a peaceful and sustainable path.

The World Wisdom Council

In Partnership with the World Commission on Global Consciousness and Spirituality

The World Wisdom Council is to represent the collective wisdom of humanity, both masculine and feminine, and from every continent, major culture, and religion. Its core mission is to transcend narrow national agendas and self-serving individual interests, recognizing that thinking based on these levels cannot meet today’s growing global challenges. It has been convened in the conviction that the paramount requirement in this age of discontinuity and transformation is to recognize that, through the development of a new dimension of consciousness, the world can be constructively changed by women and men wherever they live and whatever their interests and lot in life.

The WWC is an independent body, with initial members drawn from the Club of Budapest and the World Commission on Global Consciousness and Spirituality.

The Global Peace Meditation/Prayer Days

Numerous tests and experiments have shown that deep prayer and meditation can heal people, heal other species, and create peace and harmony in human communities. The annual Global Peace Meditation/Prayer Days were created to amplify the power of meditation to reduce the level of conflict and violence in the world and help create deeper understanding, tolerance, and readiness to live in peace with our neighbors near and far, as well as with nature.

The First Global Day, Sunday, May 20, 2007, brought together an estimated one million meditators in sixty-five countries on five continents. Never before have so many people in so many countries and from so many faiths and cultures joined together to direct the power of their meditation and prayer to the first truly common cause of all of humanity: peace on Earth.
