Fostering a Global Consciousness of Oneness

By means of all created things, without exception, the divine assails us, penetrates us, and molds us. We imagined it as distant and inaccessible, when in fact we live steeped in its burning layers.

— Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

We support projects inspired to create and express an emerging consciousness of oneness across many different fields, including but not limited to: arts and culture, Earth literacy and new science, mentorship and education, new media, philanthropy, social and cultural healing, economics, the reintroduction of values associated with the feminine, and through wisdom teachings from different traditions that can bring this awareness into the fabric of everyday life.

For more examples of the myriad possible ways to work for and within a consciousness of oneness, please see our Recent Grants for examples of our funding in this area.

Cal-Earth is dedicated to research and dissemination of simple, sustainable, and widely replicable earth building technologies for the benefit of humankind. Cal-Earth’s primary initiative is to promote the philosophy and use of Superadobe, a technology developed by visionary architect Nader Khalili (1936–2008), who was inspired by the mystical poetry of Rumi to seek the equilibrium of earth, water, air, fire, and to unite them in design in service of beauty and human need. Cal-Earth’s mission is guided by three principles: (1) shelter is a basic human right, (2) every human being should be able to build a house for him- or herself, and (3) the best way to provide shelter for the exponentially increasing human population is by building with earth.
