Gathering Soulful Community for Personal and Planetary Transformation
Dear Friend of A Whole New World,
Can you feel a new consciousness flowing through you and the world, transforming everything in its path?
Even though you know in your heart these changes are potentially very positive, you’re aware the world as we have known it is melting and collapsing all around and inside us, and it’s challenging to ride the rollercoaster of change at times.
Like me, I’m sure your heart has been broken over the years, as you’ve watched the destruction of the natural world and the loss of life in wars that don’t make any sense to you. You may have felt you were trudging through a desert with no kindred souls in view. But somehow you’ve managed to keep the flame of possibility for a better world alive inside you; even when others turned away, you never let that flame be extinguished. Thank you, I love you for that!
Perhaps, you’ve carried a dream in your heart of the way we could live together in harmony with all beings on Earth. You may have already had a taste of peaceful and loving community and know how beautiful, and alive with meaning, life can be.
You may have found meaning in learning itself, as the understanding grew in you that we are changing the world from the inside out. Perhaps right now, you’re experiencing a compelling need to free yourself to express and create more authentically and passionately. Or, like me, you’re weaving a creative enterprise from your soul work, using your passion, experience, wisdom and longing.
Now, finally, after all this time, we change-makers and transformational catalysts are finding each other, and coming together in soulful communities. We are starting to understand that, what from one perspective appears to be a profound crisis in the world is the chance we’ve been waiting for our entire lives. As things fall apart there is a Great Awakening of consciousness spreading throughout the planet and it is time to co-create the kind of Whole New World we really want.
Imagine a world full of beauty in which every single person is respected for their unique gifts.
A world in which creativity and self expression are cherished.
A world where everyone feels at home, and has a home, nourishing food to eat, educational opportunities and valued work.
A world in which we live in harmony with all living creatures.
Where people aren’t judged for their color, accent, age or gender but diversity is highly valued.
A simplified world, without all the stress of industrialized living, yet with all the advances of science and technology.
A world where wealth is shared and everyone has enough.
A world without war in which all the money now spent on killing and destruction is used to support people to live their highest potential.
I’m sure you can imagine this and more, because somewhere in our cells we know what is possible and why we’re here now, gathering together, each one of us getting ready to play our unique part in the conscious co-creation of a New Story and a New Culture.
Staying awake and conscious means opening our hearts to the suffering on Earth, whilst at the same time staying empowered. When we know what we can do to make a difference and do it, no matter what, this sacred calling draws out and ignites all of who we are and can be.
Join us in spreading seeds of possibility, as we grow our soulful global community.
We have been laying the foundations for A Whole New World over several years and now we’re launching the next stage of our global project with a program of activities designed to connect, inspire and empower. Our regular free weekly offerings include blog articles, newsletters and:
Starting on Friday 25th June at 1pm ET, and then every Friday, check out the A Whole New World Radio Show on Real Coaching Radio Network. I’ll be exploring the essential elements of personal and planetary transformation through a series of creative conversations with a range of innovative guests, especially what it means to become more conscious and change the world from the inside out, and how people are bringing the new consciousness down to Earth in life changing initiatives.
Each week, we gather on a teleclass call for Soul Sanctuary, with a focus on unity consciousness and planetary healing followed by a heart sharing circle.The next series starts in September.

CO-CREATION AND THE NEW ECONOMY
A WHOLE NEW WORLD is a fore-runner in a new gift economy which values soul work. One of our aims is to model and explore sustainable soulful enterprise outside the conventional marketplace, and make it easier for others to follow suit. As more and more people heed the call to an authentic life and develop their unique contributions, it becomes clear that soulful enterprise is an evolutionary process which is all consuming and which unfolds in its own time. We invite you to join us in inventing and discovering the New Story and laying the tracks for the New Culture as we go, through a process of experimentation, creative conversations, inquiry and participation.
The biggest challenge for many soul-preneurs is how to sustain ourselves whilst laying the foundations for a successful enterprise. In the spirit of this new soulful economy, we would do well to observe how ants, bees, or geese survive by working together. An ant colony is built as billions of ants each carry a small burden. Through our membership structure for A WHOLE NEW WORLD, we encourage you to contribute regular small sums to stimulate exchange and the flow of abundance, for the growth of the Whole.
This is a way to take a series of steps in your commitment to envisioning and co-creating a whole new world. We have set contributions low, because in this time of challenging economic circumstances, we don’t want anyone to be excluded from A Whole New World due to lack of money. We encourage you to see these as $$ contributions rather than fees. The sums do not reflect the value you can harvest and give through your participation in these learning communities. Your contributions will help to cover costs as we develop and expand our offerings and lay the groundwork for co-creative alliances and further profit sharing.
In our interviews and conversations over the coming months we will be exploring emerging forms of community economy. Our intention, over time, is to co-create with community members many different ways in which we can mutually support and prosper each other and the greater whole, moving away from the old individualistic paradigm to a genuinely interconnected soulful economy.
