The intention of Our Common Roots (OCR) is to provide access to film, audio, and written material that inspires and unites us on our common quest for a healthier world. The "web" in our view is a powerful tool of nature that is evolving along with our own need for an evolutionary leap as a species. The well being of the entire web of life depends on our ability, as one human family, to better understand how to respond as a whole.
Pressing topics of our time range from integrative and mind body medicine, to the emergence of a practical reintegration and respect for the feminine, ancient and contemporary healing arts, food security, and authentic spiritual practices that help us to transcend previous limitations and obstacles. There are teachers, healers, scientists, mothers, fathers, artists, gardeners, and other inspired individuals, in our time and from others, that have a great deal to share. Our goal is to help in that process and to contribute to it through an active website and global community forum.
It is unlikely that the solutions that will change our world will come from anything but a grounded, passionate and positive grassroots movement. It is our hope that together we can all contribute to a "tipping point" of evolutionary consciousness. A tipping point that not only helps us to practically adapt to the radical changes we now face, but delivers us to a greater level of transformation, health, and vitality.
Together we can create the future we want to see, building on our common roots, intent on using the challenges of these times as compost for our blooming. If this is a vision you share and believe in, we welcome you to become a member of this site and we're grateful for your support.
