We Can Hope and Change the World for the Better, but only when we embark on Our Journey of Hope

Our Journey of Hope is about many things. It is about challenging the norm. It is about  volunteerism and service. It is about serving our communities, our world, and caring for our planet, our home. It is about finding out more about ourselves than we ever imagined possible. It is about having a dream. It is about a mission and our vocation in life. It is about believing in our journey and stories. It is about hope.

‘It is hope that can give meaning to life and which will give us the courage to continue on our way into the future together.’

And this is why our 2018 LUCCA Conference offers a journey of hope to all those  hoping  for a better world, a world of wisdom and beauty, peace and justice, fairness and kindness, caring for our Sacred Earth and Mother Nature. Please consider joining us. Let us march together, taking action in the interest of the common good, to design and construct the better world, we are all yearning for.

“Perhaps the greatest threat to our common future is a combination of extreme individualism and extreme arrogance, as we deal with proposals to expand – through the genetic engineering of species and the geo-engineering of Earth’s climate – our domination of forces of nature of which we have only the most superficial understanding. The turning we humans must navigate to a viable future depends on a profound awakening to our nature as spiritual beings and our responsibility for the consequences of our choices and our relationships with one another and a living Earth.”
