“Spiritual Wisdom in Everyday Life”

Globalisation for the Common Good Initiative (GCGI)

12th Annual International Conference

Up-dates and Final Call for Presentation and Participation

What is the relationship between the inner life of spirit and the outer life of service in the interest of the Common Good? *What spiritual values apply in economics, education, business, management and ecology? *How can the secular and sacred elements of life be better integrated to advance the common good? *How can the wisdom and insight gained through inner exploration be used to better our individual and collective health?

The 12th GCGI Annual International Conference and our 2nd Joint Summit with the School of Economic Science will take place August 31-4 September 2014, at Waterperry House | School of Economic Science Oxford.

In this time of turbulence and uneasiness, people’s hearts are surrounded by anxiety and uncertainty. Through collective efforts, the inner calling for kindness and goodness will be awakened and we will construct a world with harmony and stability for the common good.
