Four Domains of Evolutionary Transformation

Together, we call attention to the progressive changes already underway in the world’s great religious and spiritual communities. We envision a not-too-distant future in which that axial turning will give rise to new levels of understanding, mutuality, commitment, and service to the human community and the Earth. To that end, we pledge our energies – physical, conscious, and spiritual to the realization of the evolutionary promise embodied in these four Domains of evolutionary transformation.


Reconciling with the Other: From Enmity to Empathy


We envision a world in which the cultural and religious barriers that once divided humankind have been overcome at last. We trust that one day every stranger will come to be seen as a neighbor and every neighbor as a friend



We call on the World’s Religious and Spiritual Communities and all concerned groups and individuals…


· To work to broaden and deepen understanding, respect, and cooperation among the world’s religious and spiritual communities.

· To engage the openness and unspoiled wisdom of the next generation in initiatives fostering interreligious dialogue and engagement.

· To strive to overcome the taint of religious exclusivism and to nuture the developing spirit of inclusivism and pluralism in our communities and our world.

· To celebrate the new story of religious and spiritual evolution as part of the larger emerging story of the ongoing evolution of planetary culture.

· To support efforts to identify and overcome the rigid strictures of unexamined dogmatism and to create in its place new models for creative inquiry.
