Event Description: EICSP will be participating at the the 2023 Parliament of the World’s Religions, Monday 14 - Friday 18 August 2023 | Chicago, IL. USA.
The 2023 Parliament proposal that EICSP is partnering on has been accepted for the 2023 Parliament program:
The Parliament and the Dawn of the Second Axial Age.
The Dawn of a 2nd Axial Age
Wednesday 16 August 2023, 1-2:30pm
Jointly organised by Contemplative Life and EICSP, Scottish Charity, SC048996.
We are rapidly entering a new age, and it will be, perhaps, the decisive time for the Earth. It will be an age unlike any other in the issues it will resolve, in the direction it assumes, in the consciousness that guides it, and in the truly global civilization it will fashion. Nationalism and fanaticism will evaporate before the rising sun of a more universal identity discovered by the human family. Humankind will come of age, and will outgrow these forms of association as doubtful luxuries no longer desirable or affordable. The Parliament, The Global Ethic and the cooperation of communities, science, spirituality, the arts and technology will enable humanity to begin to operate as a conscious superorganism and usher in a second axial age.
This session is primarily based on Towards a Global Ethic and former Parliament Trustee Brother Wayne Teasdale's work on the signature document during the 1993 Parliament in Chicago. All of the participants have been carrying on the vision of Interspirituality and the emergence of a global ethic.
