Conscious Community Project

The Alef Trust Conscious Community Project (CCP) aims to build and nurture a more conscious and inclusive community to help support global change. The initiative includes the cocreation of a global research network which provides project grants to members of our learning community, within an overarching research framework. These projects are envisioned as “cultural fractals” that create resonance and can light the way to more holistic and integrative approaches to education, health, ecology and community.

Two rounds of projects have been funded, in Spring 2020 and Spring 2021.

  1. Conscious Community Project
Wild Refuge works alongside residents of Chy Rehab in Truro, Cornwall, to explore the process of connecting to self, others and the transpersonal through nature, as an aid to holistic change facilitation. It takes the form of a semi structured 7-week program for people with addiction issues and complex needs including mental health diagnoses and […]
  1. Conscious Community Project

Twelve curious practitioners from South Africa and Italy embarked on the 12-week journey that integrated theory, practice, and personal insights with application on the field. “I feel so liberated that […]
  1. Conscious Community Project
This project explores how we can create a deeper relationship with Earth in virtual spaces and whether this can improve wellbeing. Together with an immersive film director, Kelley Van Dilla and my eldest nephew, Caleb Roberts (13), we’re co-creating an Earth connected process that’s both grounded in my own research on Earth Connection and developed […]

The Alef Trust Conscious Community Project is delighted to announce that we are supporting six new holistic change facilitation projects around the globe. The quality of applications from students, alumni and faculty of the Alef community was again exceptionally high, and we are excited to be working alongside these project leaders and their teams to […]
  1. Conscious Community Project
I believe that engaging with the natural environment creates a desire to preserve it. This is at the root of the Transforming Land, Transforming People project. Embodied connection to the natural world reveals information that can be transformational. I am influenced by the work of the eco-feminist and activist Vandana Shiva, who also integrates a […]
