‍Hello ,

We are pleased to send you the second episode from global thought leaders on our journey of Extraordinary Wisdom.  We began on February 17, 2023 with Episode 1 featuring Dr. Willis Harman speaking about the spread of a global mind change as humanity confronts the challenges of moving forward into a peaceful and sustainable future.


In Episode 2 we bring you the wisdom of Dr. Ervin Laszlo speaking about the development of planetary consciousness as humanity struggles to find the right path forward through a bifurcation point in its evolutionary journey.  With Episode 2 of the Wisdom Journey we are also including Episodes 3 and 4 of the Visioneers Audio Theatre in which the characters begin to take their message of peace and collaboration into the world and experience the first taste of resistance and danger from those who embrace a different vision.  The Visioneers story is a powerful complement to the wisdom of the global thought leaders.  Together they will engage your mind as you consider what role you are meant to play in this unfolding real life story that all of us are experiencing in these first decades of the 21st century.


As we said in our last message, the overarching purpose of the Wisdom Journey of 10 episodes we are bringing you (one every two weeks) is for you to consider as we go your own stories and examples of worthy people and projects that you can nominate to become part of the Visioneers Virtual Expo of a Web of Good Work https://thevisioneers.ca/virtual-expo, and for you to consider creating a Visioneers Leadership Circle https://thevisioneers.ca/events/waging-peace/visioneers-leadership-circles-event-handout in your own community of positive action contributing to a peaceful sustainable future.


Through this process we are helping to build Humanity’s Golden Peace https://thevisioneers.ca/activities/wisdom/humanitys-golden-peace, which the thought leaders are calling for.  This is a high order journey of meaning and importance for the world on which we are embarked together.  We encourage you to invite your friends and colleagues to join us as we go.  Each episode is being posted to the website https://thevisioneers.ca/activities/wisdom/extraordinary so that people can join at any time and see what has come before.


We are excited to know that you have joined us on this journey and we look forward with anticipation to what we can do together.


Here is the link to this stop on the journey.



With every good wish in all that you do,

Gerri and Desmond
