At the CIW board meeting in March 2015 in Texas, Daniel Schmachtenberger, Founder of the Emergence Project and Director of Research & Development of CIW, gave a fantastic talk about his outrageous dream: that one day, the sentence “We live in a world of outrageous pain” is no longer true.

The vision of the Emergence Project is of an omni-considerate, integrally developed, effectively and spontaneously self-governing global civilization.

Can We Give Our Children a Healthy Climate by 2050?
For CIW Board Member and Founder of the Healthy Climate Alliance Peter Fiekowsky that question can easily be answered with a resounding YES. The more interesting question is of course the question of HOW.
This question can be answered on two levels:
On the first, according to Peter, it is simply a matter of engineering – with solutions already in the making and many more coming – to lower the CO2 levels from the current 410 ppm (parts per million) to 300 ppm in our atmosphere by the year 2050.
On the second and deeper level it is a matter of capturing the public imagination.
According to a recent article on Forbes about him called The Man With The 300 / 2050 Vision, “Peter states…
…that 300X2050 is a second moonshot. We need to set the goal first (3oo ppm) and achieve it, some way, somehow, and very soon, by 2050. All our efforts need to be engineered to that outcome. But Neil Armstrong only stepped on the surface of the moon July 20, 1969 because it captured the public imagination, because there were so many stories to tell along the way, because we were with him, and the scientists of NASA the whole way. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” As a child, I built toy space ships. We played ‘astronaut,’ and followed each satellite and Apollo launch. Now today how do we inform and inspire the world on what will be our most important journey: to a sustainable planet, our gift to all who will follow? The science will be there. The money is there, trillions across the world now sitting on the sidelines. We lack only the political will, which will come if We the People take the lead and are ready to dream as big as we need to, given the scale of the problem — and the opportunity.”
On September 18, Peter Fiekowsky was part of a breakfast event at the UN SDG MediaZone, just outside the UN headquarters in New York City, to announce the launch of the 300×2050 online funding platform and an initiative to identify, fund and achieve a new climate goal—true Climate Restoration.
by Dr. Marc Gafni & Dr. Kristina Kincaid
It was the sensual Persian poet Hafiz who understood the full power of erotic surrender in every arena of life. The ecstatic poem “Tripping Over Joy” transmits something about the power of surrender:
Between your experience of Existence
And that of a saint?
The saint knows
That the spiritual path
Is a sublime chess game with God
And that the Beloved
Has just made such a Fantastic Move
That the saint is now continually
Tripping over Joy
And bursting out in Laughter
And saying, “I Surrender!”
Whereas, my dear,
I am afraid you still think
You have a thousand serious moves.
Loosening the Reins
The one master who saw it as his role to reclaim the erotic at the core of life was the Baal Shem Tov, Master of the Good Name. We have already met this master of Eros in this book, and we will encounter him many more times along the way. The Baal Shem Tov was an eighteenth-century magician, mystic, and healer who founded the movement of spiritual renewal, Hasidic Judaism, that swept Eastern Europe in the 1700s. The story is told of a fateful meeting between Jacob Joseph of Polnoye, a well-known religious master of the time, and the Baal Shem.
The master from Polnoye had apparently heard of the Baal Shem before but had refused to join his ecstatic movement. Then Jacob Joseph heard that there was a lone individual in the marketplace telling stories. His stories were preventing people from coming to the prayer house for morning prayers. He had his attendant summon the renegade storyteller with the intention of severely reprimanding him. The Baal Shem came to him, smoking his pipe.
