The Network of Spiritual Progressives is a very fine conglomeration of U.S.-based progressive thinkers whose Washington conference I attended a few months ago (June 2010). Totally awesome conference, speakers, & experience. Totally glad I went!!
Along with my conference fee, I’ve been given a one-year subscription to the NSP’s fantastic magazine, Tikkun.
(Tikkun, btw, pronounced tee-kun, means to mend, repair & transform the world.)
More cool stuff about NSP than I really have time to articulate right now, since I’m mostly focused on something else entirely.
But wanted you to know a few things about NSP & Tikkun:
- The NSP group has come up with fantastic ideas. The people involved in this group are very big thinkers! One of their excellent proposals is the ESRA – the Environmental & Social Responsibility Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
- Another is the Global Marshall Plan (the NSP Web site has links to both, of course…)
- The other major thing I wanted to mention is that the Sept./Oct. 2010 issue of Tikkun Magazine is very well worth reading!! There are excerpts from a number of the speeches of the amazing speakers from the June 2010 Washington conference (e.g., Dennis Kucinich, Bill McKibben, Keith Ellison, Jeremy Ben-Ami, Margaret Flowers, Lester Brown, Arthur Waskow, Brian McLaren, Marianne Williamson & Sharon Welch – along with lots of info about the proposed ESRA – along with gobs of other great articles!!
You definitely want to check out the Network of Spiritual Progressives & Tikkun magazine; trust me!!
