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

"Subtle Activism envisions the emergence of postmodern or integral expressions of spirituality that help to re-establish links between nondogmatic forms of spiritual consciousness and modern public awareness—not through overt action in the sociopolitical or even intellectual arena, but via actual practices that enact the connection at subtle levels of consciousness."
