Initiatives of Change
Our vision is of a just, peaceful and sustainable world to which everyone, responding to the call of conscience, makes their unique contribution.
Our mission is to inspire, equip and connect people to play their part in building a better society.
Our values are honesty, unselfishness, love and purity of heart as practical tests for motives and daily actions.
Our core practice is listening in silence to divine inspiration or the inner voice as a source of truth and renewal.
