CULTURAL PROJECTS

Arbor    strongly    supports    the    deeply    meaningful    and    transformative    nature    of    culture,    new    ideas    that    fertilize    and transform,   and   "the   spirit   of   the   word".   This   represents   the   vision   of   the   man   who   recovered   the   hope-principle   that   has been   lost   by   many   today,   due   to   hardship,   crisis,   nihilism,   and   interiority,   which   is   synonymous   with   depth   and   not intimacy. The   Foundation   believes   that:   practice   should   never   be   separated   from   reflection   (even   critical);   intuition   should   not   be separated   from   logos;   nor   the   visible   be   separated   from   the   invisible.   Without   a   real   cultural   transformation   from   within, everything fades into the background.
“BECOME THIS” November 2008, Milano Mille    Gru,    a    cultural    association    that    produces    PoesiaPresente (“Present   Poetry”),   cooperates   with   SpazioStudio   on   the   creation of    "Homage    to    Hermann    Hesse",    Fourth    Edition:    Become    the present   -   Hermann   Hesse,   Raimon   Panikkar   and   us,   by   Patrizia Joy Peter and Sergio Mauri.
“THE MYSTICAL ECONOMIST” November 2012, Milano Covering    the    wide    current    debate    on    ethics    and    economics through   a   program   that   ranges   from   art   to   theater,   the   dialogue that   the   conference   opened   up   focuses   on   the   radical   rethinking   of the   economy,   inseparable   from   a   profound   change   in   mentality and    culture,    in    order    to    re-focus    on    the    meaning    of    life.    This involves    a    holistic    philosophical    approach,    inter/intra-cultural and spiritual, that rethinks and recreates our worldview.

“WHICH EUROPE?” March 2014, Milano The   work   we   are   conducting   faces   a   crucial   juncture,   concerning not   just   the   continent   in   which   we   live   -   Europe   -   but   in   fact   the entire   world   and   an   entire   era.   More   and   more,   we   are   realizing that   the   moment   we   are   living   is   important,   crucial:   here   and   now, hic   et   nunc.   Our   culture   is   terminal,   we   need   a   paradigm   shift,   or more:   a   radical   transformation.   We   are   waiting   for   the   start   of   a new   cycle,   a   new   spiral,   or   an   ‘age   cosmotheandric’   (to   quote Panikkar)   and   we   are   trying   to   make   our   contribution.   The   most important    links    seems    to    us    to    be    the    holding    together    of spirituality   and   liberation,   which   means   to   combine   internal   and external,    spiritual    quest    and    commitment,    ecological/ecosofical and    political,    in    its    most    worthy    and    wide.    It    is    also    about overcoming    discouragement    that    seems    momentous,    and    not mistaking for fatal something that instead is convertible.
