Center for Subtle Activism
No problem can be solved by the same level of consciousness that created it.
The more subtle a force is, the more effective it becomes. Love is the greatest force in the world.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.
The Center for Subtle Activism (CSA) is an action research center and networking hub based at the California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco, USA to advance the study and practice of subtle activism. Subtle Activism is an activity of consciousness or spirit, such as prayer, meditation, or ecstatic dance, intended to support collective healing and social change.
The CSA is the home of the Gaiafield Project, a sustainable program of subtle activism initiatives developed collaboratively by leaders in the field. The CSA aims to connect people around the world through love, compassion, and awakened consciousness to support collective healing and positive social change.
What does the CSA do?
- The CSA is an incubation tank for collaborative subtle activism programs and events. The CSA brings together leaders in the field of subtle activism to co-create annual subtle activism events and to collaboratively develop media and web resources of value to the whole field. The CSA is currently convening the “Gaiafield 2012 Dreaming” project in collaboration with leaders from the World Peace Prayer Society, Common Passion, Vessels of Peace, Pathways to Peace, HeartMath, the Shift Network and other leading subtle activist organizations.
- The CSA illuminates, appreciates, and strengthens the existing field of subtle activism through on-line and in-person networking opportunities for subtle activist leaders.
- The CSA co-ordinates research into subtle activism through organizing scholarships and fellowships for CIIS students, CSA staff, and faculty.
