How do we create a society that works for all? Sharif Abdullah of the Commonway Institute provides profound insights for a "common society" in this interview with Talking Feather Radio. Commonway Institute is an inclusive social change organization, dedicated to creating a society that works for all. Their goal is to foster inclusive, sustainable human societies on an ecologically viable planet. Sharif Abdullah is an author and catalyst for inclusive social, cultural and spiritual transformation. Sharif is recognized nationally and internationally as a voice for a "common society", a visionary movement beyond the extremes of secular globalization and religious fundamentalism. He founded the Commonway Institute in Portland, Oregon, whose purpose is to teach and practice inclusivity. This is the recognition that my life, my fate, my future are inextricably linked to yours. It is vital to our future to make the change from "I am Separate" to "We are One." It is only through this profound shift in consciousness that a new society will be born. We are in deep trouble, says Sharif. We live in a world that works for only a few. It doesn’t even work for those it purports to serve. Through the practice of exclusivity, "I am separate", we have created a soul-starved society. The irony of our times is that things are getting worse and worse, and better and better, faster and faster. However, Sharif presents a unique way out of our world dilemma: By changing our consciousness – how we Think - we can change ourselves, our communities, our nation and our world. Our world is shaped by our beliefs: change the underlying beliefs and the world will be changed. Sharif’s gift is to help us make sense of an increasingly complex and turbulent world, and to show us how to become the leaders we need at this time.
