Together in Creation

A radical, prophetic vision that reveals a profoundly challenging perspective of human consciousness and its evolution.

Written in the form of an unusual epic poem, “IS” takes us on a mythical journey through the intrigues of the relationship between the masculine and feminine essences and calls into question many familiar assumptions of current consciousness

A mosaic of colorful visual poems inspired by the sacredness, mystery and majesty of

Cape Town and Jerusalem

A framework for transitioning from a governing system rooted in the mindset of separateness and the domination of life to a system of governance rooted in the mindset of interconnectedness and the cultivation of Life.

A collection of art and posters with inspiring quotes and images based on the written material from ITSOIS and from Ubuntu 4 Animal's campaigns.

One simple organizing principle that can change

the world: Applying the reality of our ecological inter-dependence to our local and global

governing systems.

There’s a rhythm coming through


There’s a rhythm coming through

Its showing us there’s something new

Beyond our busy expectations

Multi-media fabrications

And collective lamentations

Awakening a different dance

Beyond the “me good - you bad” stance

Groups and nations competition

Of domination and submission

Arguing each other's version

Calling it a damn perversion

Of what is right and what is wrong

And to whom truth and land and God belong

Claims of special entitlement

Guised as rational argument

Or as rules and laws of God or man

Pointing to a larger plan

That gives some power over others

Like birthrights of the older brothers

This alienation seems to start

When we learn - head must rule heart

And every other body part

We scorn our instincts, intuition

Standardizing all tuition

Always dashin, following fashion,

Stalking status, choking passion

The rush for bigger and for faster

In our push to grow and master

Has only lead to a disaster

Bulldozing all that’s in our way

We’ve lost the caring, lost the play
