Thank you for getting involved in a way that works for you. Every bit of attention given to the mission of a Global Ethic for a Global Civilization helps. As Lynne Twist says, “It’s not about a big role or a small role, it’s about YOUR role.”
1. LIVE the CIW mission and operating values in your own life and projects.
The Center for Integral Wisdom is an Activist Think Tank dedicated to partnering with leading thought leaders and change agents to transform and evolve the source code of culture through application of Integral principles.
Together we articulate, evolve and deliver a new, Integral narrative for living – which transforms each individual, culture and life itself – creating a world of outrageous love, through outrageous love.
Our mission is to love outrageously, live outrageously, and create an extraordinary world.
These are the core values the CIW team operates around. We even use these values to select our MVP of the week.
- Be Outrageous Love
- Operate from Commitment
- Take Ownership
- Choose Radical Creativity
- Show up
- Operate with Integrity
- Operate in Alignment
- Commit to Transformation
- Be Awesome & Fun
- Get Stuff Done
