The Gaiafield Project

The Gaiafield Project promotes the study and practice of subtle activism, which affirms the power of consciousness-based approaches like global meditation and prayer events to support social and planetary transformation. The Gaiafield Project develops subtle activism principles, practices, and programs, builds connections between leaders in the field, and co-creates a global network of subtle activists to support a shift to a global culture of peace.

What is Subtle Activism?

Excerpt from interview with David Nicol by Sheri Herndon of OBO Radio

"One of the most meaningful tasks of our times, then, may be to evoke experiences of planetary communion of such sublime joy that an unspoken vow is made, from the most intimate heart of humanity, to persevere through the trials ahead, to heal the wounds of our collective past, and to accept the pain that must accompany the birth of planetary awareness."
