Critical environmental problems we face today, from global warming to the degradation of ecosystems, are not technological problems. They are human problems. Wind turbines, solar arrays, organic agriculture — these initiatives and countless others are necessary but not sufficient to create the sustainable, abundant, and peaceful world we all desire.
True sustainability begins within human beings. Creating a truly sustainable world requires an inner transformation, a transformation in human consciousness. Deep within the mind of every individual is a field of silent, pure, unbounded consciousness. This field is simultaneously the most fundamental field of nature, the wellspring of all the laws of nature.
Consciousness-Based Education provides simple, natural technologies that develop the total potential of consciousness — for “diving within” and awakening this field, thus bringing life into harmony with the laws of nature. It also provides a profound understanding of the dynamics of consciousness itself. Applied to the field of sustainable living, Consciousness-Based Education offers a rich new approach to cultivating the full potential of consciousness as the foundation for a truly sustainable, peaceful, and prosperous world.
