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 (Hay House), 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 declares.
Harvey’s vision has already been embraced by leading luminaries and activists including Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, David Tucker (executive director of the Pachamama Alliance), Seane Corn, Caroline Myss, Julia Butterfly Hill, James O’Dea and more. The Hope 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 including: Sacred Practice, Surrendering to the Divine, Constant Humble Shadow work, the Alchemy of Anger, Recognizing and Protecting Ourselves from Evil, Joy and Networks of Grace.
Through these laws 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.
The Hope lays out a conscious road map for preserving our future and birthing a new divine humanity.
