Are you a sacred activist?

Are You a Sacred Activist?   Take the Quiz!

  • Do you have a burning desire to change the world or make a difference?
  • Is there a cause or issue that breaks your heart?
  • Are you devoted to a spiritual practice such as prayer or meditation?
  • Are you concerned about the environment, social justice, non-violence and personal wellness?
  • Are you seeking for deeper meaning in your life?
  • Do you believe love is the essence and creative force of life?
  • Are you anxious about the current state of the world and looking for a way to pitch in?

If you answered YES to two or more of these questions then you are being called on to become a Sacred Activist – what author Andrew Harvey defines as a humble and divine agent of change to birth a new world of compassion, peace, justice and harmony.

In his new book, The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism, Harvey sounds an urgent clarion call to all who care deeply about the future of humanity and of the planet. “We need to not only fix the existing system but radically transform it so we no longer, by our choices, threaten our lives or the lives of millions of species.”

Harvey’s book reveals how the large-scale practice of Sacred Activism can become an essential way for preserving and healing the planet and its inhabitants. Harvey believes the current crisis at hand drives us towards the positive practice of justice, equality and harmony with nature such as the new movements towards ecological sustainability, social justice and non-violence, the advent of new alternative forms of technology and energy, and more.

In his book, Harvey offers seven powerful laws for Sacred Activism and he shows that neither the noble, pragmatic work of the activist nor the passive spirituality of the individual is enough to change the world. These two must be fused to become an unstoppable force of transformational love and compassion in action to affect meaningful change –beginning with ourselves.

This year Harvey officially launched The Institute for Sacred Activism , which offers a year-long global curriculum for implementing his philosophy and vision and is dedicated to continuing the tremendous work of extraordinary ordinary people such as Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Desmond Tutu. Each of these individuals rose up to meet the challenges of their time with great spiritual grace and integrated inner contemplation with decisive action.
