ENARGEIA

(Pilio, Greece)

Mission Statement:

Spiritual practice

Community Description:

An open living community and Spiritual centre.

A vision comes true
The need to live life with Freedom and Love, away from big noisy cities. Discussion after discussion, year after year, the vision began to anchor, in the heart and from there in the mind. Yet, we were all there, into the glossiness and faked up of daily routine.

Enargeia emerged as a collective need of many to live their lives according to a viable model. Life at a place, where permanent residents and guests would have the opportunity to share life, to learn on the same principles and values within a spirit of sustainable development.

The Values
Both the work and service of Enargeia, towards civil society, are based on the understanding of the enormous challenges that humanity faces today and which can be surmounted only by developing a planetary consciousness.

A consciousness for which is sought to be developed within Planetary Education which promotes planetary awareness which in turn creates planetary citizens. This includes becoming conscious of the underlying energy structure of our society, the kingdoms of nature, the planet and the solar system.

Goals
The nurturing of Education of Peace which seeks consciousness of:
Unity between humanity and nature
from dominant use towards unity within all kingdoms

A global economy of sustainable development
“ from industrial exploitation towards sustainable development and viability

A good health “ from illness and disease control towards a healthy physical, emotional (sentimental), mental and spiritual living

A planetary culture of wisdom“ from the intellectual knowledge towards the heart centred wisdom

A participative society“ from the authoritarian principle towards participation, unanimity, a spirit of noble emulation for the Common Good, contribution and sharing of material and non material goods

A planetary peace and freedom“ from the national or the racial isolationism towards the community of the peoples

Current stage
Since 2003 Enargeia owns two beautiful pieces of land, 300m away from the sea, including thirty olive trees around 600 years old and a rich ecosystem.

Enargeia seeks to operate the whole year, organising workshops and seminars in municipal or private buildings of the area until the completion of its own buildings. Education, the arts, therapy and governance are the areas of knowledge on which we have worked up to now.
