9Having waded from the shallow waters of a material existence into the deep profundity of an ‘awakened’ lifestyle, spiritual healers and twin-flame soulmates Eden and John have now dedicated their lives to helping others discover what it is to become a New Human. Here they share some tips on letting go, calming down and listening to our hearts.

What is the concept behind your Becoming A New Human project and how exactly would you define a New Human?

zEden_ShootPromo2Eden: The New Human concept came about in our experiences working with people at the soul level. Those who are awakening are realizing there is something more to who we are, and that humanity as a whole has the ability to completely transform itself. We are using a fraction of our abilities. We are just barely beginning to understand the true powers we hold in creating our reality and being in harmony with Earth. There is an absolute difference in the abilities of those who have shifted in the last 10 years, such as being more empathic and sensing others’ energy, visioning or “3rd eye” psychic abilities, as well as the ability to help others heal. There is also a lot of information coming through on the actual physical changes we are undergoing in order to hold a greater energy for all of these changes.

JohnGermainLeto_PromoShotJohn:  For me, the New Human is about taking the components that are the deepest elements in life, and bringing them to the foreground. It’s reversing the way that most people live in life. Instead of the priority being the literal level, mental level, emotional level, and then spiritual level, it’s flipping it so that the order of importance is the spiritual, emotional, mental, then the literal.

How can those interested join the initiative, or benefit from the work you are doing on this project?

It’s more of a movement than a project meaning we encourage each person to find their own highest path and listen to their soul’s calling. Once you set your intention to awaken and re-remember who you are, you will absolutely be guided and supported in your awakening in a way that’s right for you.

We’ve organized the initiative into 4 core areas on our website, and we provide concepts and specific energetic tools to be able to fulfill the intentions in each area!

Otherwise we’re always honored to work with people in session to help them find their own highest path and help awaken their own abilities in healing, seeing, and connecting to the higher realms. We also welcome people to join us for our sacred travel to sites around the world.  We are currently leading a very special trip to Peru this coming June 2014 to work with the indigenous shaman and visit sacred sites.

You speak of four core elements that embody becoming the New Human. Can you break down and explain the idea behind each section for us?

 

16

The four components are Calm Down, Let the Past Go, Enlighten Yourself and Create Abundance.  We feel that each of these aspects are the keys to a soulful life.

Calming Down:  It is certainly important to slow down, empty ourselves, and connect to our centers. This area provides information, meditation techniques, and other ways to ground oneself and connect deeply to our core. From this point, all becomes possible.

Let the Past Go:  We learned that it’s very hard to move forward in life if you are still carrying a lot of heavy energy from the past.  We all go through experiences in our lives where we’re meant to learn lessons. It’s important to keep the lessons, but let go of the old stories of how we got them. This section provides tools and techniques to let the past go so that people can be freer to go in a higher direction.

Enlighten Yourself:  This is all about raising our consciousness and vibration. Simply put, there are many different ways to approach our Soul’s journey and the path we take. There are many practices, beliefs, and traditions. The purpose is to respond to experiences from a place of love while also powerfully co-creating life in alignment with your highest path.

21

Create Abundance:  We are each Creators at our core. We can, absolutely, create the life we dream on all levels. This section explores ways to be a more empowered Creator.

How can holding onto the past hinder people in their health, well-being and in their daily lives?

When we hold on to the past we’re not truly free to create in the present moment. We place the experience of our past into the potential of our future, leading us to repeat the same patterns and life lessons until we heal them. What that means is that instead of allowing a moment to be what it is, we bring a wealth of old emotions, hurt, anger, sadness, or regret that creates disharmony.  This disharmony, over time, can often manifest as physical health problems which is why when someone has a repeating health issue, it’s generally best to look at it from the level of the energetic, in addition to treating the actual physical condition.

Calming down and Letting go of the Past are especially difficult in todays fast paced lifestyle. What changes can someone make in their personal lives to help them to achieve these goals?

Succinctly, to calm down someone could be more aware of their breathing and breath more deeply into their belly. Prevention is always the best medicine — even 5 minutes each morning standing on the earth in bare feet (when possible) and taking deep breaths into your core can help tremendously. Over a few weeks, this becomes a grounding ritual for the day you can always come back to.  During the day even five seconds – five long seconds – of closing your eyes, breathing, and imagining energy running up and down your divine line (center column in front of your spine) can do wonders to bring you back to your center point.

For Letting the Past Go, we suggest a daily practice of clearing your personal energy field.  This can be done in numerous ways. Also upon going to bed, take one full minute to make a mental note of everything you were grateful for from that day. Building gratitude helps you stay focused on what is working, not what isn’t.

 

Before beginning your own personal journeys to becoming New Humans, you both had successful careers as entrepreneurs. What were the catalysts for your spiritual awakenings?

Eden: For me, the catalyst was hitting rock bottom following a variety of challenges that came all around the same time — a crumbling marriage, a massive car accident, and losing a company I was co-founder and CEO of. I also had issues from my childhood and teenage years I was still holding on to that needed healing. I was miserable and having a mid-life crisis, unsure of who I was or how to be happy. Of course everything happens for a reason, and it made me seek out energy healers for deeper work. Within 6 months I found myself in the Amazon jungle with local indigenous shamans. Those two weeks changed my life; I came home, separated from my husband the next day, moved out 4 weeks later to a new city, and completely started a new life with a new outlook.

John: For me it was a deep underlying sense of not being totally fulfilled. Material success certainly does not equal soul fulfillment. Before someone starts a true spiritual exploration, we often just do what people expect us to do. When we start asking ourselves the questions that don’t have easy answers, and we commit ourselves to finding them, then awakenings can occur.

What was it that you realized was wrong with your old ways of living and how easy was it to adapt to a new lifestyle? 

Eden:  My major shift first happened during my work in the Amazon jungle. I had radical awakenings and insights into who I really was, what my purpose was here, and worked through years – and lifetimes – of pain that needed to heal. I saw where I held on to pain and suffering, where I had continually allowed people to cross my boundaries and hurt me, and how I had stopped listening to my heart. It wasn’t that the old ways were wrong so much as not in alignment with what I was here for and what I was truly capable of.  I came back transformed, but also got thrown in to massive changes as a result.  But thankfully, things began happening effortlessly, I was supported during my entire journey in more ways I ever could have imagined.  The more I trusted the shifts, the more beautiful they became.

How dramatically have your lives changed?

Eden: Completely!  I used to be highly stressed working 12 to 14 hour days, striving for material things (nice home, nice car, nice clothes, nice shoes), being in a relationship with someone who always put me down and was emotionally abusive, and didn’t honor me (or the feminine) or things that were important to me.  I had no voice, never spoke my truth, and my heart always hurt.  I thought being with a “soul mate” and being able to live a life of travel and freedom and spirituality was for other people. I was resigned.  Yet after my awakening, I met my twin flame who I’m completely in alignment with on all four levels – emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually – and is someone who deeply honors the feminine and my soul path.  We live in a beautiful home near the ocean in a city I had always dreamed of living in (but never thought possible), and I get to work from home, on projects I love and being creative. I do healing sessions with clients, being in service to other’s soul path.  We also travel the world as often as we can leading sacred ceremonies and connecting with sacred sites. And this year, we also welcomed in our baby daughter.  My life is so radically different than before, but it’s absolutely perfect and a reflection of who I truly am.  All of my dreams came true once I trusted.

John:  One of the biggest changes in my life is my relationship to my work. My personal path has fueled the way that I’m meant to be of service to others. This evolution was essential. If I’m going to help others find and then step powerfully onto their highest path, then I’d better be on mine. Also, there’s just a deeper sense of satisfaction now that I’ve aligned my life purpose with my soul’s purpose. 

What advice would you give to someone who has realized they are not on their Right Path and are yearning for more from life but are not quite sure what direction to take next?

We hear this a lot.  As humanity is being pulled forward into stronger energies of love and unity consciousness, people everywhere are yearning to live their soul’s purpose and a path that’s truly in alignment with who they are. Many people can’t just live life on auto-pilot anymore, but they may feel stuck on what to do.  The hard part is we rarely see the big picture or have any idea where our new life may take us.  So our best advice is simple:  listen to your heart.  Find time in stillness and ask yourself what it is you truly desire. Don’t feel stuck!  You ARE the creator of your life and you are more powerful than you can imagine.

The trick is, you need to become still enough to truly listen to your heart and make a choice to awaken. Once you set your intentions – truly in your heart – to follow your highest soul’s path, simply ask your Guides or Angels or the Universe (or whomever you feel is there to support you) in helping bring this to you.  Trust it can and will happen and be open to the signs, teachers, lessons, and messages that get put in your path. Trust the process of opening; it will bring you everything you need.

One other way to get in touch in a deeper way is to journal. Try to see if you can “just have a conversation with your mind” and open up to something greater that wants to flow through you. It’s in that “something greater” that you’ll experience the clues to your highest path.

Researchers Outline Reality of Psychic Ability & Explore Whether It May ‘Run In The Family’

Avatar

Published

CE Staff Writer 8 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    It is commonly believed that psychic ability, like many mental and physical traits, runs in families. This suggests the presence of a genetic component. Researchers recently decided to search for one among people with psychic abilities.

  • Reflect On:

    Can special abilities, or psychic abilities be passed down? Are these abilities innate and lying dormant within all of us?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

‘Psychic ability’ comes in many different forms, from telepathy to clairvoyance or remote viewing, there are a number of phenomena that have been demonstrated under strict scientific controls that have yielded statistically significant and repeatable results. There are also multiple declassified documents that have been archived by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) via their electronic reading room, for example, pertaining to individuals with “special abilities” who are able to perform feats like telekinesis, or healing at a distance. You can access a few examples of that here, and here where I go more into depth.

The literature in this area, from peer-reviewed research all the way to examples from the within the defense departments of  multiple countries, is quite robust. It’s another subject seen as fringe and in-credible yet has more than enough evidence to for a reasonable person to deem these abilities as possible.

The researchers of a recent study published in EXPLORE titled “Genetics of psychic ability – A pilot case-control exome sequencing study” decided to search for some sort of genetic link among people with psychic abilities. They explain:

Many cognitive and perceptual abilities are associated with genetic factors. An open question is whether or not extraordinary “psychic” abilities such as mind-to-mind communication (in the vernacular, telepathy), knowledge of future events before they occur (precognition), and perception of hidden or remote events (clairvoyance), might also be associated with genetic factors. Evidence of the reality of such extraordinary abilities has been offered by multiple meta-analysis of experiments conducted over the past century, which demonstrate independent repeatability and robust statistical significance.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that extraordinary manifestations of these abilities run in families.. Few formal studies have evaluated the genetics of psychic abilities. Telepathy studies with identical and non-identical twins have found mixed evidence for greater concordance among identical versus nonidentical twins on telepathy task performanceOther case studies of families with data on up to four generations have been conducted. The pattern of familial transmission in second sighthas also been examined. This capacity is defined as “a special psychic ability believed to be a natural faculty of mind, regarded as an inborn gift by some andan affliction by others…Second sight implies that there are two forms of sight. One is normal sight and the other is the ability to have prophetic visions which occur spontaneously and arrarely directed at will.” Second sight is considered hereditary within the Scottish tradition. A formal pedigree analysis of second sight found an autosomal dominant pattern f inheritance. Other studies have evaluated the relationships between psychic abilities and the temporal lobe. However, to our knowledge, no similar investigations have been conducted using modern genetics techniques.

Interesting stuff, isn’t it? For the study, more than 3,000 candidates from around the world were selected and screened through two online surveys. This was done to locate people who claimed that they, as well as other family members, had some form of psychic ability. Eligible candidates were then selected as the final “psychic cases,” and then age, sex, and ethnicity-matched individuals, with no claims of psychic ability, were selected as the controls.

DNA from the saliva of the 23 participants were subjected to “whole-exome sequencing.” This is a test that looks at most of the genes within an individual. After this, two independent bioinformatics analyses were blindly applied to the sequenced data. This means the ones doing the analyses had no idea about the results the other lab was getting. They were completely separate.The analyses focused on protein-coding sequences and another one included some adjacent noncoding sequences.

According to the researchers:

Sequencing data were obtained for all samples, except for one in the control group that did not pass the quality controls and was not included in further analyses. After unblinding the datasets, none of the protein-coding sequences (i.e., exons) showed any variation that discriminated between cases and controls. However, a difference was observed in the intron (i.e., non-protein-coding region) adjacent to an exon in the TNRC18 gene (Trinucleotide Repeat-Containing Gene 18 Protein) on chromosome 7. This variation, an alteration of GG to GA, was found in 7 of 9 controls and was absent from all psychic cases.

You can access the full study here.

This means the study did not find any significant markers suggesting that these abilities may be genetic, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t. We already know through epigenetic studies that various traits are passed down to offspring, be it physical or even emotional. It is interesting that the study did however identify a noncoding variant that was largely restricted to non-psychic controls.

The most conservative interpretation of these results is that they result from random population sampling. However, when the results are considered in relation to other lines of evidence, the results are more provocative. Further research is justified to replicate and extend these findings.

Keep in mind, the researchers did test those who claimed to have psychic ability and overall they scored better on the tests than those who did not. There were many limitations to this study, and a big one was the size of the number of people used for the study.

Given the fact that, in the researchers experience and based on my research and examples that I’ve written about, these abilities are undoubtedly real, so looking for some sort of genetic component is quite reasonable and would have tremendous implications.

The researchers explain:

The identification of genes involved in psychic abilities has the potential to yield clues about their distribution within the general population and also their evolutionary origins. Such a finding may also have clinical value because it may help inform the development of pharmacological or environmental interventions to enhance or suppress such abilities, and clinical performance applications could be used. Enhancing these abilities could augment decision-making in many contexts, stimulate creativity in art and science, and improve diagnosis of disease, insofar as these faculties and activities may be partly dependent on, or enhanced by, psychic ability.

For example, perhaps telepathic communications could be developed for individuals living with communication disabilities, such as aphasia or cerebral palsy. On the other hand, suppressing these abilities might alleviate psychotic symptoms in some individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, insofar as “disordered” psychic manifestations may be at risk factor in these individuals.

The Takeaway: Studies within the realm of parapsychology, which encompasses the study of various psychic abilities mentioned in this article, are abundant. Many show eye-opening repeatable results. Remote viewing is one of many great examples, showing “successful replication” by yielding “significant scientific evidence.” (source)

The methodology and the controls on these experiments are tighter than any other area of science where I’ve worked. Dr. Dr. Jessica Utts, former Chair of the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Irvine (source)

Again, there are also documented real world examples that defy belief linked earlier within this article, which brings me to my next point. Much of the science produced today, in my opinion, isn’t really following the scientific method. By that I mean discoveries that challenge what we once thought we knew, and ones that have paradigm shifting implications for humanity, are often ignored and unacknowledged. We see this all the time in the field of parapsychology.

“There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing.”
 Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

Why do we fail to properly confront new concepts and ideas that don’t fit within the frame? Studies and results from these realms truly call into question what we think we know about the nature of reality and human potential. They will force humanity to open up to a broader view of reality that currently may not fit within the accepted framework of knowledge in the minds of many. But if there’s one thing that’s constant, it’s change.

Discoveries in this field, I believe, will lead to the realization that love, compassion, thoughts, emotions and service to others are key for humanity to move forward. It’s more than likely that this is the true nature of human beings, not competition and separation.

These must be our priority, we have to change the way we think here on planet Earth. If we continue to operate from a place of greed, ego, and have a lust for power, control and material wealth, which are cultural learnings, not necessarily our nature, we will not move forward to a thriving world. Non-material science has the potential to change the way we perceive the world, and ask the deeper questions like, why do we live the way we do when we can create a human experience where everybody can thrive? How can a race that is so intelligent and technologically advanced be so politically and morally corrupt?

New Moon In Aries: Taking Bold Action

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

We are having a New Moon in Aries during the later hours of April 11th in the Americas and on the 12th everywhere else in the world. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned throughout this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Scorpio on April 26th/27th.

Aries season began at the Equinox (on March 20th globally this year) as it always does, as per the framework of the Tropical Zodiac. Being the first of twelve signs, and initiator of a transitional season, it begins the Astrological New Year. However with this New Moon actually occurring in Aries as well, it will crank up the energies of this sign even more so in comparison to the previous weeks that were part of a lunar cycle initiated by a New Moon in Pisces.

Aries is the domain of self, independence, and individual needs. As a Cardinal Fire sign ruled by Mars, it is assertive, courageous, direct, pioneering, and leading. It is initiating, quick, bold, energetic, and warrior-like. Negatively, this energy can be inconsiderate, selfish,  hot tempered, combative, restless, impatient, aggressive, and overly competitive. Aries lacks thoroughness due to its quick forward energy.

New Moon Conjunct Mercury & Venus In Aries

This New Moon is close to both Mercury and Venus. This can reflect a period in which our social interactions and engagement with others can be more lively. Both Mercury and Aries have a busy moving type of energy and we may feel more active, physically and/or mentally, as a result.

The conjunction of both of these planets with this New Moon also means it is tied into cycles that each of those planets have with the Sun. Venus recently joined the Sun in the last week of March and it is now travelling ahead of it in zodiacal position.

In recent weeks this has been a time in which we experienced shifts, developments, endings, beginnings, or more clarity around Venus areas of friends, love, social dynamics, values, worth, or financial matters in some cases. This New Moon and the weeks following can continue this process, especially when it comes to beginnings or newer ways of expressing ourselves in these areas.

Mercury is now approaching the Sun as they will make their conjunction on April 18th/19th. At that time we may experience developments, which may be significant, connected to what has transpired during its previous retrograde in February and how things have unfolded since then. From there, these things may develop further with a better perception, or circumstances may indicate lack of sufficiency, not what was anticipated, or that something needs to change.

Planets In Aries Square Pluto & Sextile Mars Trine Jupiter

This New Moon, along with Venus and Mercury, are in a square with Pluto and sextile with Mars and Jupiter. Pluto combined with Aries and Mars energy can reflect a period of intensity. However, it can also play out as issues around power, control, manipulation, jealousy, insubordination, or subversion.  It can also be revealing, psychological, compulsive, transforming, and purging.

The sextile with Mars in Gemini adds to the lively, assertive, instinctual, and energetic expressions of Aries. The Aries’ planets sextile to Jupiter, which is also trine Mars, can be good for applying ourselves in a way that is expansive, optimistic, educational, philosophical, explorative, freedom seeking, or centered around beliefs. New doors may open up and it can even be lucky for some people.

Uranus square Saturn (mentioned here in a previous article) is still in the backdrop as it will be throughout the year. Although it’s not in one of its strong periods, themes of ‘freedom/rebellion/revolution being at odds restrictions/limitations/traditions are still playing out. This may get activated in different ways by this new lunar cycle and the Aries energy that has already been present over the previous weeks following the Astrological New Year.

Making Intentions & Things To Consider

How would you like to grow and expand and what do you need to change to get there? In what areas do you need to be more bold or courageous? What have your relationships shown you in recent weeks? What is important for your individuality? What are your personal needs? What do you stand for and should you be fighting for it? Do you need to be a leader in any aspects of your life? Are there any new things that you want to explore?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time. However, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment it will occur is 2:31am Universal Time on April 12th. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

A Symbiosis of Humans & Technology – Changing The Conversation

Have you ever noticed that discussions about transhumanism tend to focus on technology more than humanism? The journey to reaching our highest potential as a species is usually focused externally on the technology rather than internally on our conscious evolution. This is probably because people assume that conscious evolution is more about spirituality whereas technology is more having to do with the things humans create. The two paths are interdependent so we need more conversations between experts in each of these fields. It will only be through a recognition of the symbiotic nature between humans, their technology, and the environment that we will avert self-destruction.

trans·hu·man·ism (n.) 1. A belief that humans should strive to transcend the physical limitations of the mind and body by technological means. 2. A movement of people who espouse such a belief.

Standing at a Crossroads: The influence that technology has on society and culture is called, technodeterminism. Most of us carry mini supercomputers in our pockets called smartphones. These devices act as external brains which seamlessly integrate into most aspects of our life. Most of us are completely dependent on them for travel, work, communication, entertainment, and beyond. Take a moment to consider the future implications of augmented reality, artificial intelligence, machine-learning, mass surveillance, automation, genome editing, nanotechnology, and their potential influences on society, culture, and our environment.

When I think about these things, I can’t help but ask:

Why aren’t people like the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, and Dr. Andrew Weil conversing more with people like Ray Kurzweil, Elon Musk, and Steve Mann?

Ancient Futures: It will become increasingly imperative for our most advanced technologies to be informed by the natural ethos of indigenous people blended with the emotional-intelligence of our enlightened spiritual masters. We must remember that the first humans who captured fire to light their cave, stay warm on a cold night, or cook their food were using technology. Anthropologists proudly call us humans “tool-makers” as one of the attributes that make us distinct from most species.

Paradigm Shift: Conscious evolution will require a concerted effort to communicate across silos and disciplines. Cooperation and collaboration towards collective goals will need to take the place of competition for personal gain. What are we hoping to accomplish, and at what cost? We are a risk-taking species and that drives us to exceed all our limitations. Let’s make these be calculated risks because with our technology also comes a great responsibility.

Start Within: Even our most sophisticated technology does not possess the complexities of organic systems. Computers and machines can do many things for us but they will never be able to feel for us. The realm of emotion is central and unique to our human experience yet it is only now starting to be recognized as a valuable form of intelligence.

Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to recognize one’s own and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior.” -Andrew Coleman A Dictionary of Psychology

Research in multiple fields of study shows that curiosity, creativity, taking initiative, multi-disciplinary thinking, and empathy are skills that will redefine traditional beliefs about intelligence. The ability to accommodate new information requires a certain level of mental flexibility, humility, and ultimately character. It is through our ability to feel and process our emotions that our higher intelligence flourishes.

SuperHumans: Any sports fan knows that there are individuals who possess superhuman gifts. Think of popular sports stars like Michael Jordan, or any of the various extreme sports heroes who somehow manage the seemingly impossible. We also have the various musical or art prodigies who express the skills of a master before the age of 10. We have seen humans walk on red-hot coals with bare feet, walk a tightrope between skyscrapers, and exhibit mind-boggling feats of mental-focus, and will-power. Did you know that Wim Hof ran a half marathon barefoot on ice and snow, with a time of 2 hours, 16 minutes, and 34 seconds? Humans are capable of amazing things when they channel discipline, practice, creative brilliance, fearlessness and focus. We have barely scratched the surface of what is possible!

Global Meditation: This simple practice of quieting the mind, and bringing presence to one’s breathing has a long list of documented benefits that include enhanced neural connections, deep feelings of connection and well-being, as well as a strengthened immune system. When we compound this focused intention to include tens of thousands of people all over the world, we begin to literally shift planetary magnetic resonance. The science does not lie, we are potent electrical beings with the ability to focus consciousness and create beyond our wildest imaginations.

Everything technology offers is a reflection of the technology that we, as humans are. Learning to laugh at ourselves a little while delving into our emotions and to make room for possibilities beyond our currently held beliefs is essential for this journey. In order for us to create technology that is aligned with all of life and our planet, we must first become aligned with ourselves and each other. Global meditation is where we practice together!

We can no longer claim that a technology is advanced if it is destroying our skies and rivers or perpetuating harmful practices like war and domination. These are examples of misguided technologies. Our DNA has been informed by countless generations of evolution. It is time that we focus our consciousness towards the natural wisdom kept by indigenous people, while embracing the presence of enlightened spiritual masters. This will allow us to infuse our science and highest technological advancements with ecological and emotional intelligence for the benefit of all life.
