"There is no doubt that,at this time in history,Western civilization is suffering from a great sickness of the soul.The West's progressive turning away from functioning spiritual values;its total disregard for the environment and the protection of natural resources;the violence of inner cities with their problems of poverty,drugs,andcrime;spiraling unemployment and economic disarray;andgrowing intolerance toward people of color and thevalues of other cultures all of these trends,if unchecked,will eventually bring about a terrible self-destruction.In the face of all this global chaos,the only possible hope is self-transformation.Unless we find new ways thatcan touch and transform the heart and soul deeply,both indigenous cultures and those in the West will continue tofade away,dismayed that all the wonders of technology,all the many philosophical'isms'and all the planning of the global corporations will be helpless to reverse this trend."Dr.Malidoma Patrice Some drumsofchangedotcom
