It is a with great joy that I write this letter to inform you that The Great Balance (TGB) has moved to a new stage of development. During the last two years, we have been quite busy working and seeding the Great Balance in the spiritual world, as suggested by our dear friend and fellow of the Arhuaco culture, Mamo Dwawiku.
In 2015, TGB became a not-for-profit organization in the State of New York, registered at the IRS with the capability to receive donations that are fully tax deductible. The dual nature of TGB is reflected in the spiritual board of counselors as well as in the permanent board of directors. TGB also counts a large number of individuals and organizations who have accepted to become ambassadors and members of the TGB Circle of Dreams, representing different parts of the world. We have made progress in developing and establishing different projects, most of them in the Heart of the World within the Arhuaco reservation in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains of Colombia.
In December 2015, TGB was inspired to submit its first proposal for a seed grant. It was with The Pollination Project, a fantastic organization that extended its hand to help us to start planting One Million of Trees to restore and protect the watersheds of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (Hyperlink). This seed money, enhanced by additional contributions from friends and allies, allowed TGB to initiate a beautiful journey engaging schools and the Arhuaco community around the Sierra in this environmentally critical project. A year later, In April 2017 we received a second grant to continue the One Million Trees (OMT) initiative from the Sisters of St. Francis (hyperlink).
Today at the end of 2017, TGB has extended its field of action by establishing a branch of the organization in Colombia. In addition, we are in the process of joining the Divine University in Australia for a project to help the Mamos of the SNSM on the Mission Of The Heart – Earth’s Restoration (MOTHER) project. This project aims to reclaim, restore and protect the sacred sites of the Black Line.
TGB is projecting its presence and action through several other projects on education, health, and social services. You may find additional information about these initiatives by visiting our new website at www.thegreatbalance.org
In general, TGB organization is promoting balance in all walks of life, between humanity and nature and seeking the integration of the spiritual and material aspects of life. An essential aim of The Great Balance is to restore harmony in the world by bringing together the feminine and masculine energies within each of us and in society. That is our sacred mission.
My invitation to all of us is to bring balance into our own life to help Mother Earth to heal herself and everything that lives on her. Thank you for visiting our website. We hope TGB will inspire you to become the seed of the new change Humanity is longing for.
President of The Great Balance Incorporated
The mission of The Great Balance is to promote authentic balance as a mechanism for social transformation, cultural understanding and personal and spiritual development. The Great Balance seeks ways to restore balance between humanity and nature, supporting the integration of the spiritual and material aspects of life. The Great Balance aims to restore harmony in the world by bringing together the feminine and masculine energies within each of us and in our society.
Our beneficiaries are individuals, groups, communities, organizations and institutions who are seeking to achieve attainable, realistic, functional and optimal balance in all walks of life. Our mission will be achieved by sponsoring and supporting educational, social, economic, and artistic projects and personal growth development, both nationally and internationally.
The journey of The Great Balance is to open the heart, to embrace Mother Earth and to listen from that deep place of inner rhythm and connection to the sacred I AM. From this sacred place within all, we invite you to join us in exploring the idea of Great Balance –what it means and how to facilitate its expression and embodiment in the world.
Our vision is based on an invitation to all of us to become leaders of The Great Balance initiative by working together to advance the mission of The Great Balance and help Mother Earth in restoring her beauty and natural resources. We are supporting Mother Earth so she is able to fulfill the divine cosmic plan designed for her and for humanity. By sharing our experiences, documenting our progress, noting where we have fallen short and identifying the challenges that lie ahead, The Great Balance can help us to travel toward a new humanity and a new world. The challenge of creating a sustainable balance is global and requires a global response. We believe that it begins with a simple idea: balancing ourselves to balance the world.
