If we are ever to have a government that actually responds to the needs of the majority of people in this country, we are going to need much more than a change of administration and Congress. We need a fundamental change of consciousness. We also need fundamental and systemic changes to our systems. The values and beliefs on which our country was founded – imperialism, racism, patriarchy, and capitalism – and our current systems are killing us and the life-support system of our planet and undermining our capacity to see each other as embodiments of the sacred and to celebrate the awe and wonder of our universe. We at Tikkun and the Network of Spiritual Progressives have an approach to shift consciousness that can significantly contribute to the kind of transformative movement that is so badly needed. I will share how we got here and what progressives can do to help shift the tide.
Beyond promoting short-term fixes, we can and must promote a world based on a New Bottom Line, whereby we measure success by the extent to which we maximize our capacity to care for each other and care for the planet rather than by the extent to which we maximize money and power. In our time together, I will share bold proposals that could create lasting change and a strategy to build the movement we need to enact such change.
