Our Philosophy

       At The Infinite Program, we understand that all of our worlds challenges are rooted in the unhealed mind and spirit. Without addressing this psycho-spiritual crisis that humanity currently faces, we will endlessly be trying to patch up the internal and external chaos that emerges from this root. At present, the majority of our collective global effort for positive change is focused on the external manifestations of this crisis. These efforts are noble yet they may only serve as attempts to stem the tide of a deepening spiritual crisis that places our world in increasing peril. Furthermore, when political and social change is pursued through unloving, divisionary ways, we risk the deepening of our spiritual crisis. This factor can be seen clearly in the deepening polarization of our politics and the glaring incoherence of our mainstream political philosophies. Thus:

We continue to go one step forward – two steps back
While we perceive progress
because we are only counting the steps forward

      Humanity has all the information, the insights and answers necessary to tackle the issues…yet we simply lack the will, desire and vision to make change. The minds of humanity are not at peace and the hearts not open. Therefore we are primed by our society to charge forward into the world to be self-serving and fearful…thus leaving little room to think of others or to even believe in the possibility of a more beautiful existence. And for those who do try, vision of the path forward is encumbered by a conditioned false narrative of understanding of the nature of humanity which leads to political policy and social views that ultimately helps perpetuate the false narrative.

        The Infinite Program philosophy understands that the most effective and efficient way to heal our society and to change hearts and minds to care about our world and be part of the change for good, is to help the individual heal within. We don’t need to debate what is and isn’t ‘good’ or which direction to go. When we find our own internal healing, our peace of mind and open heart, our values converge on truth and Love. The healed and internally empowered individual is a powerful force of peace and unity, an effective voice of reason, and a clear, focused and humble champion for the greater good.

        We are deeply rooted in the understanding that our need to create endless lists of laws is due to our spiritual crisis – that when we are healed individually, and converge as a community of healed individuals, we do not require law as a body of fear to force us into coexistence….Love is the ultimate peace keeper!

In our healed state we understand harmony
we lead with wisdom of the heart –
we are balanced – and seek balance with all life.

       At The Infinite Program we believe our world is in dire need of what can be called ‘Spiritual Activism’.  That is, we need to bring ‘spiritual/deep psychological healing’ to the forefront of our efforts.  Something so vital for our individual and collective thriving cannot be left to be confined to the fringe if we desire to truly move forward.  Peace, unity and universal respect for nature will not be achieved through the halls of power.  It can only begin from the grassroots upward – and this begins in the heart and spirit of each individual.  We believe it is vital for humanity to begin shifting more and more of our focus onto ‘the provision of healing’ as the most powerful route to solving our challenges – this is ‘Spiritual Activism’.

      Our vision is to bring ancient indigenous healing wisdom to the world. We understand that there is tremendous healing to be found in the combination of deep nature immersion, natural healing methods and loving supportive community. We understand that to truly care for the well-being of the earth and all life, it is necessary to rekindle the bond with the natural world. It is only through this deeply ‘spiritual’ experience that we discover our innate ability within to care for all and to deeply take care of ourselves.

We have a deep understanding of the power of interconnection, culture and popular ideas.

We envision a path forward to make this type of healing into a mainstream celebrated effective tool for societal improvement as well as a popular cultural movement.

We envision, through indigenous wisdom, a path forward of an exponential shift in the evolution of our society that will usher in the dawn of a new era

The Infinite Program is a rally cry to the world
To face the challenge of our time
Our world is in great peril
One way or another we are going to enter a new epoch

We have the free will to choose
Whether we will enter an epoch of great chaos and destruction
As the rates of our social and environmental woes continue to compound
Or
Whether we will heal
So that we may heal our world –
Enter an Epoch of Harmony

The Infinite Program
vision of

Conservation 2.0

The deep understanding that…

The beautiful intention of conservation, to preserve our natural habitat, is only needed because otherwise humanity would simply consume, abuse and destroy – because we are out of balance. The unceasing tide of global development ravaging the land, and the toxification of our atmosphere putting all life at risk, is a clear sign that our conservation efforts, as they currently exist, are losing the struggle.

Attempting to combat nature destruction without addressing the core root of what drives this march towards our own destruction is a lost cause. As our rivers dry, forests burn, islands sink and yet another global climate summit proves useless at tackling the issues that they have created and perpetuate – how long will we wait until we recognize that we must change course? Will we wait until it is too late before we try to take action to revolutionize our approach to nature conservation?

We must learn to see the abilities and intelligence of our species not as a permission for selfish domination but as a great responsibility to be wise caretakers of our home-earth, to preserve balance and harmony.

Wisdom says:
we destroy nature because we have no bond with her

The deeply held value of loving respect for our home has been lost from humanity.
Like the addict who destroys their own body
We are collectively ill

Driven through fear and greed, we consume endlessly because we do not understand or see our own illness.

Why?
Because, as a collective, we have been uprooted from the land.
Detached from the natural world and detached from our own nature within.
Detached from the natural rhythm of life that heals and guides.

This is the root of our nature destruction
as well as the root of our social ills.

This understanding is becoming increasingly understood by modern science –
Reaching conclusions that we have known, from time forgotten, through our indigenous wisdom.

As we increasingly recognize the extent of the destruction we have caused to ourselves and our home-
like the addict, we must accept our need to enter into recovery.
We must turn away from the parasitic mentality of constant growth and consumption.
We must embark upon a great global effort
to find a state of balance with our planet that is sustainable, ecologically and socially.
We must address the root of our illness

This is
The Infinite Program vision of
Conservation 2.0,

A synergy of nature preservation, restoration and community mental/spiritual health guided by indigenous wisdom

Sewing the seeds for
The establishment of a national, and global network of
nature immersion Community Healing Sanctuaries,
Within and surrounding the major population centers of the world.
Where the individual can discover true mental health
Where we, as community can reform our bond of respect to nature
Return to the circle of life
Where nature guides us to flow in harmony with her and one another

What we are advocating is
wise governance by city and state leaders,
Wise investment by conservationists and philanthropists
The formation of a great collaboration to heal our world from the inside out
To heed the advice and knowledge
from the studies of sociology, anthropology and psychology
by supporting this bold initiative to put the understandings of these studies into use
To heal our mental health
To heal our relation to one another
To heal our relationship with the natural world
To set the stage for forming towns and cities of the future
Where we dissolve our social ills
Where we clean up our act
Through the peace of healed minds
And embrace of open hearted community
