Organisational Membership

The Vision

The vision is of able men and women all over the place expressing themselves relevantly in the ordinary here and now situations in which they live and work. This expression may be in silence, in building, in planning, in negotiating, in teaching, or in play, but it will be a responsive and creative expression, and expression that brings joy to the human spirit, that uplifts the soul, that makes us feel part of the universe again.
