You know you feel it. Different. Strange. You've heard it before: The World has Changed. It's a bit like stage-fright; suddenly hurled onto the stage of life with a new set, stripped of our old costumes, thrust into a new storyline before we even see the rewrite. And now we have to improvise. Or do we?
The Fuji Declaration states that infinite potential – our Divine Spark – dwells within every human being as part of a living, boundless Universe. Ervin Laszlo explains that Source belongs to everyone and every being ongoing. It is our resource for guidance and reconnecting to it is our true source of comfort and power. Our Source. It is the very fabric of the Cosmos we are expressions of – and at this poignant time of reckoning, Source is now beckoning.
When everything we've relied upon “out there” is crumbling ... when every reassurance we sought “out there” is dissolving ... how to access the guidance of something we can't even see, touch, taste, or hear?
By learning to switch gears – from eyesight to insight, from listening to discerning, from feeling to sensing – the answers to our existential questions become clearer: Who are we and why are we here?
Please join us for a gentle Call to turn the Compass Inward, to cull its comforts, to share the TLC and spread That virally ...
Join us for 4 days / 2 weekends in October to turn words into actions ... to seize a golden global moment of opportunity and discover our magnificent Source of Wonder (of One-der) ... to kindle harmonious transition to this new storyline with an esteemed international group of Change-makers, Game-changers, Creatives, and Eye-openers from multiple sectors (Consciousness, Education, Economy, Environment, Health, Science, The Arts, etc.).
Their unique essence and effervescence will talk us, dance us, sing us, laugh us, and artistically express us into our new realms of living, being, feeling ... and ignite our Divine Spark on this wonderful journey to discover our Source of Wonder!

The Source of Wonder is hosted by Masami & Hiroo Saionji of the Goi Peace Foundation and Ervin Laszlo of the Club of Budapest—the three co-initiators of the Fuji Declaration. The Fuji Declaration was launched five years ago at the base of Japan’s majestic Mt. Fuji, to call upon every citizen to ignite the divine spark in their heart.
This led Ervin Laszlo to publish his book Reconnecting to The Source which recounts personal experience from many who have tapped their Source of Wonder and sparked their divine reconnection. And now, amidst tremors of worldwide upheaval amongst Leadership and Citizenship, another ship sets sail ... for the still waters of a new and deeply inspired destination for All: Within.
The time is NOW for every one of us to awaken the Divine Spark that resides in our heart and bring forth our innate love, compassion, wisdom and joy to co-create a healthy and flourishing world for all.

Spirit Musique represents the musical collaborations of Gianna & André Ripa and serves as a platform for their multimedia projects intended to uplift and promote positive change.
Practitioners of the healing arts first and foremost, Gianna & André create and utilize music as a tool for transformation. Music for them is a conduit for the voice of Spirit.
Spirit Musique goes beyond entertainment, offering a multi sensory journey that invites every participant to their own unique experience.
A rich spectrum of moving percussion layered with etheric sounds and vocals invokes heart opening, while the mesmerizing beauty of large format imagery and art expands the imagination.
Originally from France, André expressed an interest in music at a young age, working as a sound man for theaters in Paris. He embarked on his healing path after moving to Montreal in 1986.
Over the past decades he has emerged as an accomplished hands-on healer and guide for the terminally ill, incorporating dolphin-assisted therapy, music and imagery into his practice.
Since 2002, André’s immersive studies with indigenous elders in Peru, Brazil and Hawaii have inspired his abilities as an intuitive musical composer.
Gianna’s path unfolded from a need to find peace as a driven career woman in her twenties. Through her own need for self healing, she found herself in India, where she studied Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda, a 5000 year old science of healthy, balanced living.
Upon meeting André, Gianna became immersed in the study of subtle therapies utilizing energy, sound and music. In the process she rediscovered her own love of music and the use of her voice as a healing tool.
As a child who believed that signing her prayers was like saying them twice, Gianna still experiences song as a pathway of communication with the Divine.
Together André and Gianna have offered therapeutic programs and transformative retreats since 2007. Over the past decade their powerful work and the resulting music has touched thousands of hearts internationally.
Both André and Gianna are grateful for the many teachers and guides on their paths, especially for the inspiration of St. Francis & St. Clare of Assisi.
Information on their private practice can be found at spirithealingarts.com.

After decades as a physician and teacher at Harvard Medical School and elsewhere, renowned academic neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander thought he knew how the brain, mind, and consciousness worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE) during a week-long coma from an inexplicable brain infection changed all of that – completely. Memories of his life had been completely deleted, yet he awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm – more real than this earthly one!
Since his 2008 NDE he has been reconciling his rich spiritual experience with contemporary physics and cosmology. We are conscious in spite of our brain. By probing deeply into our own consciousness, we transcend the limits of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm. His story offers a crucial key to the understanding of reality and human consciousness.
A pioneering scientist and thought leader in consciousness studies, Dr. Alexander has been a guest on Dr. Oz, Oprah, and many other media programs. His most recent book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness (co-authored with Karen Newell), has garnered accolades from many scientists around the world who study the mind-body question and the nature of consciousness. His earlier books, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife and The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving the Afterlife, have collectively spent more than two years atop the New York Times and international bestseller lists. www.ebenalexander.com
As an innovator in the emerging field of brainwave entrainment audio meditation, Karen Newell, co-founder of Sacred Acoustics, empowers others in their journeys of self-discovery. Using Sacred Acoustics recordings, she teaches how to connect to inner guidance, achieve inspiration, improve wellness and develop intuition.
In her search for answers to fundamental questions, it became clear that direct experience is crucial to full understanding. To bolster her strong sense of inner knowing and alignment with her higher nature, she enrolled in a series of hands-on experiential courses to investigate and develop such skills as lucid dreaming, astral travel, telepathy, remote viewing, self-hypnosis, and different forms of energy healing.
She developed a facile expertise in living through daily connection with universal consciousness using heart awareness as a central element. At international workshops presented with best-selling author Dr. Eben Alexander, Karen demonstrates key practices of consciousness exploration: heart awareness, intention, maintaining neutrality, emotional management and cultivating internal knowing. She is co-author with Dr. Alexander of their latest book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness.

My true purpose is to drive consciousness development and to help businesses make a positive impact globally. Being a global citizen, having a business background and speaking 6 languages I want to contribute to dignified life in the world.
I was born in East Germany in 1977 and grew up in the city of Jena. Until the age of 12 I experienced the experiment socialism-communism. While religion did not play a role in my family I was raised on humanistic values. I learned Russian as my first foreign language and attended an elite sports school. As I grew up in this political-economic system I saw first hand how businesses operated in context of the rigid paradigm. I also witnessed the effects on people and the environment. In 1989 the Berlin wall fell and Germany was reunited in October 1990. An entire new world opened up for me. I graduated from high school and went on to study Business Administration. I finished my college degree in Arizona where I moved in 1998 at Northern Arizona University. After a first work experience in the San Francisco Bay Area I returned to Northern Arizona University in 2000 to attend the MBA program. I graduated with an MBA degree with emphasis in international marketing and finance in 2001. In the same year I joined the Salt Lake Organising Committee to stage the 2002 Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Salt Lake City. During this experience I really took the humane Olympic values in. In spring 2002 I returned to Germany and started a 14 year career at global sports brand adidas where I worked in various positions within global marketing and finance. Working for a global brand and leading a team which was located around the world gave me global exposure. During the many business trips I did not only get to see the market places and consumers in the various countries, but also got to experience the social and environmental problems around the globe. At adidas I met many very inspirational purpose-driven people some of whom have become lifetime friends. I also volunteered for adidas' own foundation "adidas fund" in the favelas of Brazil working with youth to teach positive values on the basis of sports. Grateful for all the experiences and learnings I could gain I left adidas in 2016 in good terms to pursue my life's purpose. At the end of 2016 I served several weeks as a volunteer in one of the largest refugee camps in Lesbos, Greece where thousands of refugees who fled from the IS war and the crises in Africa live in inhumane conditions. This profound and very humbling experience has strengthened my intent to leverage my skills to create more dignity in the world. I am also greatly concerned about the destruction of ecosystems. The polar bear has become the tragic symbol of global warming. I love nature and I love polar bears. I am fully committed to do what is necessary to protect mother Earth as I deeply believe that economy is only a subset of ecology.
I strongly believe in the consciousness development of people. Therefore, I trust that businesses will transform our world positively and that the 17 UN sustainable development goals will be achieved. I am part of this journey and serving this transformative process is my personal purpose. With great passion I guide businesses to find and act out their own true purpose which fosters dignified life in the world.

I grew up with the perspective, conscious evolution. In fact, I am as old as the worldview is new. In the background of my childhood, while I was playing with horses in my room, my parents Barbara Marx Hubbard and Earl Wade Hubbard were seeking answers to questions such as, what is a deeper human purpose and what is the significance of all that is humanly possible? They came up with three answers which have remained fertile in my mind. We can choose conscious evolution for what is humanly possible to have peaceful purposes. They believed a characteristic of being human is the potential to become universal self-conscious. I personally connected the dots with this potential and responding as how evolution can co-evolve with our species. Conscious evolution greatly influenced my relationship with three important areas of my life, being an artist, mother, and gardener. I pursued tapestry weaving and over the course of 45 years I have woven many commissions, shown in galleries and museums, taught weaving, and exhibited rugs in decorator show houses. I never considered making art a career, however. Weaving, teaching, living the life of an artist, and contemplative writing are processes which involve cyclic and whole-oriented rhythms of integration and reintegration as do mothering and gardening. Their unifying behavior patterns communicate universal self-awareness as well as a tactility which (manually) manifests expressions of life’s / our indigenous qualities of wholeness. I realized a universal self-perspective, which relates by becoming a personal expression, could transform a deeply divided world. We have become even more polarized from the effects of the pandemic and with the killing of African American George Floyd. This is a seminal event because it revealed all dominant perspectives are implicitly biased. At the same time COVID-19 struck in early 2020, I completed The Unwritten Book and Your LifeBook Journal: An Organic Personal Conscious Evolution. The book has taken a quarter of a century to write, because coevolving with Nature has never been considered human work. I am supporting unbiased and integrative (conscious evolutionary) seeing, being, and becoming (universal-self) expressive of who we truly are. The immense suffering of unemployment today reflects an early human decision to separate from a world of mutual sustainability.
