“I interact with my peers, with all species that I know of this earth and the entire universe, only to learn. I think it’s our mission. After walking around near and far, I found that all the worlds, all the moons and all species are within me: the chatter with my peers and with the silence of the moon. The vastness of the sky and the smallness of a grain of pepper. The stillness of the lake and the fury of the sea. And so on, the infinitely … then, I understood that only knowing my Self I can know everything.
Just loving myself, I will love.
And I began again … to see if this is the right path … María Inés Cámara, Great Balance Artist
We call the work The Great Balance, but who are “we”? Who is doing the work?
We are an ever-widening circle of individuals and organizations around the world working in diverse ways and initiatives to bring the vision of The Great Balance fully into being and consciousness. We call ourselves the Circle of Dreams.
We are pursuing our own unique missions and visions, enhancing our purpose of awakening a universal consciousness; expanding unconditional love to all beings, and to all creation and Mother Earth, through a common commitment to The Great Balance.
The Great Balance is a work in progress. Each person who contributes to the work adds to its value. Through conversations and experiences, we are learning that planning, development, and action to carry out our defined goals and objectives are open-ended, requiring different processes and approaches. Our collective wisdom is more substantive than anything we arrive at separately.
Goals & Objectives
The common goal of the Circle of Dreams is to actuate The Great Balance. Our primary objectives are to:
Preserve the autonomous and unique nature of the Circle of Dreams participants and their projects, initiatives, and contributions.
Foster dialogue among cultures and fields of knowledge, by exploring and understanding how Balance is defined, established, and maintained in different arenas of human experience and action.
Provide a convergence zone for integrating knowledge from the various fields, with the aim of understanding the nuanced complexity of interdependent relationships.
Identify innovations and key ideas that seed dynamic Balance, recognizing leverage points within each Circle of Dreams initiative.
Advance practical collaborations and support among the Circle of Dreams, promoting opportunities to exchange and share ideas.
Connect innovations with practice, and devise interventions that elicit and nurture social responsibility and healthier relationships with others and the planet.
Create reciprocal learning experiences that allow the Circle of Dreams to incorporate the knowledge generated from The Great Balance in a dynamic feedback loop.
