As you will know from our previous update, we have wound down the New Story Initiative to open to a deeper calling in service at this time.
Many of you had asked to be kept informed of what emerges and, as long-standing members of the New Story Community, you are invited to an exclusive preview of our new spiritually-inspired initiative: The Great Turning. https://greatturning.net/
Future generations, if there is a liveable world for them, will look back
on this epochal transition we are making to a life-affirming society.
And they may well call this the time of The Great Turning. It is happening now.
If, like me, and many others around the world, you are concerned about the plight of humanity and the planet, and want to cultivate an empowered and compassionate response to these challenging times, you are warmly invited to unite forces with us. Our new online spiritual network is dedicated to supporting the evolutionary leap of consciousness needed to navigate and actualise The Great Turning. We will be honouring and bringing together the visionary work of the giants whose shoulders we stand upon, among them:
- Craig Schindler & Gary Lapid, who first coined the term The Great Turning in 1985 and co-authored The Great Turning: Personal Peace, Global Victory in 1989;
- Joanna Macy who popularised the term through The Work That Reconnects;
- Thomas Berry who championed The Great Work and The New Story;
- David Korten who wrote The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community; and
- Duane Elgin who recently wrote Choosing Earth: Humanity’s Great Transition to a Mature Planetary Civilisation.
The Great Turning is both the individual awakening to the light of the soul
and the spiritual emergence of humanity. It is the shift from our war-weary
adolescence as a human species to our conscious adulthood.
You can read all about our collective mission on our Great Turning website and sign up if you, too, feel the call to awaken, unite and act for future generations.
For those who have expressed that you are missing the New Story Blog digest coming into your email inbox every Friday, you can now sign up to our Great Turning Blog digest for continued inspiration.
And for those who are missing the annual September programme journeys, you are most welcome to join our Inaugural Great Turning programme coming Spring 2022.
Lastly, in early November, we’ll be releasing a video of an inspiring panel discussion featuring our Great Turning visionaries, so be sure to stay tuned to our new website for the release.
I look forward to cocreating with you a spiritually-awakened, life-affirming and resilient response to our times for the benefit of all life.
With love and in solidarity,
Mattie (for The Great Turning Initiative at Findhorn)
