Spiritual Activism is a movement of interconnectedness between engaging in spiritual practice and striving to create social change. It is a revolutionary way to mindfully explore injustices of the heart, as well as the world. By nurturing ourselves with compassion and faith, we can also begin to find sustainable solutions to create a more just and loving culture of the world. As spiritual activists we remain loyal to our five principles of freedom, community, compassion, belief and justice. We keep these principles with us, and strive to keep their presence with our thoughts each day.
Five Principles of Spiritual Activism
We seek to find freedom within ourselves, and for our communities. With liberty we are free to ask questions, find truth, and to change our minds and hearts.
We commit to this journey with the precedence of togetherness. Though we may take different footsteps, we recognize that we are seeking an attainment of the same goal: unity and love
We can love the world with more ease once we learn to love ourselves. We are a part of the struggle because of our human connection, and we seek justice for others because it is a part of beings as well.
We must believe in our hearts that another world is possible. We allow faith and our spiritual practice to guide us in the direction of justice and community. Our belief leads our work, as our work leads our belief.
With our promise to ourselves and each other, we seek a better future for our global community. We find it necessary to raise our voices for the muted, marginalized, oppressed, and suffering people.
