It is funny writing the words ‘Humanity Rising’. As I explain in a previous blog where I discuss the Progressive International Movement, I had started plotting a campaign called Humanity Rising at the beginning of lockdown. It was in support of Noam Chomsky and the idea of a radical reconstruction of society with humane values. It was a plan to draw together all the people who no longer wanted the present out-dated system and for us to share ideas on mass. The Monastery, Manchester the phenomenal charity I work for (that are also trying to draw humanity together) were also behind it, but it never happened.
There was no need, The Progressive International Movement mobilised in support of Chomsky’s ideas, and they are on powerful and clear mission that champions good strong values and a humane agenda. Then a Humanity Rising Solutions, global forum, also appeared (nothing to do with me) to ‘represent a movement of people and organisations coming together to counsel on how to leverage the crisis of the coronavirus pandemic into an opportunity for human renewal and increased resilience to future challenges.’ In times where the future is worrying, our leaders are even more worrying and things can look bleak, these progressive organisations are where we can divert our energy and are a tour de force of common good, magnificent hearts and values of integrity and kindness. This is exactly what we need.
Humanity Rising launched their awe-inspiring global solutions summit in May 22, 2020. Due to the pandemic ‘everything has disrupted and everything has changed’ and they have speakers every day talking about transformation and to mobilise ideas. The scale of this movement is phenomenal and growing. Already it is an ‘international coalition of over 200 leaders and 100 partner organisations representing 10 million individuals’ and is an initiative of Ubiqulity University’. Ubiquity university is a visionary global university that teaches and works on social impact. You can do a MA or PhD on Wisdom there in amongst many over inspiring and important courses.
Humanity Rising’s global forum attracted an array of impressive speakers and teachers. For instance, the writer of the well-shared and well-respected article ‘The Coronation’, Charles Eisenstien. The have also had well-revered Nassim Haramein the founder of the Resonance Science Foundation. Haramein’s impressive research on physics, maths, cosmology and quantum mechanics really is pushing all the necessary boundaries. They also have the truly wonderful, Dr Jane Goodall inspiring people to conserve the natural world we all share and talking on how we improve the lives of people, animals and the environment from a local perspective. I recently noticed that David Lorimer from Paradigm Explorer is also talking. As you see from another of my articles on the Scientific and Medical Network that this is another incredible progressive movement. What is wonderful about Humanity Rising is it is attracting speaker from around the globe. Today I listened to the wisdom from eco villages in Senegal and rousing talks on how we already have everything we need for change. What is also wonderful is we listen and we cheer. There are so many of us, so many good hearted people who want change and passionate people creating transformation projects around the globe. Humanity Rising is about bringing everyone together. We can indeed all join together and rise up and above the present out-dated systems. We know they are out-dated and there are alternative and solutions but it is up to us.
Humanity Rising has blogs, video discussions and clear active solutions. Their talks are incredibly inspiring and represent the sentiments of millions of changemakers worldwide. ‘Your future, your community’s future, your country’s future, the world’s future depends on it.” The discussions are recorded and free to tune into. In September, they are assessing where the world is and will start a reiterative process where they will draw together all that has been discussed and no doubt publish their key findings. These global conversations are essential as we move forward and create new solutions and visions. Whilst Progressive International is in pursuit of a world of good values and is politically left, Humanity rising is opening up a new worldview and this is incredibly exciting and thinks outside of systems. There are woman’s circles, meditations and talks embracing spirituality. This is an interesting flavour in Humanity Rising and one that some may find a little off-putting. However, these are essential discussions and as movements such as Paradigm Explorer are moving towards a new worldview, we really are starting to see seismic changes in this direction. I would whole-heartedly encourage you to check out Humanity Rising and be inspired by the wonderful array of passionate speakers. This is very important work.
