´Love to Love´: The OPEN HART Story
By Tara MacPhail and Doug Skipper
OPEN HARTS is a registered charitable institution based in Australia. It is a part of the Global Neo-humanistic Movement that aims to cultivate a sense of universalism throughout the planet. The OPEN HARTS vision is ‘a world where all beings live with an open heart’. Its mission is to ‘support all beings in awakening and expanding their consciousness so that they align with their true purpose and contribute to society in a way that is of maximum benefit to themselves and others.
OPEN HARTS is an acronym representing the fields of passion within the organization:
O – Oneness, P – Planet, E – Education, N – Networking, H – Health,
A – Arts, R – Rights, T – Transformation of S – Self and Society.
The word HARTS is spelled differently as it symbolizes the importance of questioning what is commonly accepted as given, and to acknowledge different perspectives.
OPEN HARTS was formed in 2009 by a small group of people who shared a passion for making a difference in the lives of others and who recognized the power of an open heart. It also arose from the need to live a meaningful and service oriented life. The organisation has been in an early phase of development and is now ready to take the next step in its evolution.
A large part of the OPEN HARTS ethos is supporting people in aligning with their passions and deeper purpose in creating the life they envision. By connecting with our heart and following it’s guidance we align with the ‘Universal flow’, and generate an energy field where our personal dreams come into resonance with the collective well-being of society.
OPEN HARTS is committed to networking with others and creating alliances to bring about change in a collective and co-operative way. OPEN HARTS has officially endorsed the Earth Charter, which is a declaration of fundamental ethical principles for building a universal society. It recently partnered with the Australian branch of the global Earth Charter Initiative in its tenth anniversary festival.
With its global outlook, OPEN HARTS operates within Australia and internationally. The guiding philosophy of OPEN HARTS is Neo-humanism, and its attitudinal principle can be summed up in the phrase ‘Love to Love’. For more information visit www.openharts.org.
