Tikkun - to heal, repair and transform the world

The Network of Spiritual Progressives (NSP)

NSP is a project of the Tikkun Community. The NSP is a network of people and institutions that...

  • Advocates a New Bottom Line in America. This bottom takes into consideration not only how well institutions and the economy maximize money and power, but how well they maximize love and caring, ethical and ecological sensitivity and behavior, kindness and generosity, non-violence and peace, and the extent to which they enhance our capacities to respond to other human beings in a way that honors them as embodiments of the sacred, and enhance our capacities to respond to the earth and the universe with awe, wonder and radical amazement.
  • Challenges the misuse of religion, God and spirit by the Religious Right.
  • Challenges the anti-religious and anti-spiritual assumptions and behaviors that have increasingly become part of the liberal culture.
  • Challenges the extreme individualism and "me-firstism" that permeate all parts of the global market culture.
