MISSION AND PURPOSE STATEMENT
As a global grassroots movement embodying Oneness with a profound respect for cultural diversity and responsibility for all of life, Humanity’s Team is dedicated to raising consciousness through living our individual lives with purpose, each being a loving presence, and serving through authentic leadership. As spiritual activists, we are united in our passion to awaken society to Oneness as a community of joyful, loving, peaceful, and harmonious beings. By our conscious use of the 5 Steps to Peace and our involvement in local good works, we pledge to transform the face of humanity in one generation.
Oneness is the energy of Love that lies within and connects all of life. The universe in one being and we are its cells; all essential and responsible for the whole.
Introduction and History
Humanity’s Team South Africa is the South African chapter of a World Wide volunteer Spiritual Movement (A Civil Rights Movement for the Soul) that was founded early in 2003 in Boulder Colorado by Steve Farrell who became the Worldwide Coordinating Director. Together with a small team he formed a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization and created a governance structure and programs focused on awakening the world to Oneness. Today, Humanity’s Team is represented in more than 150 countries on six continents. Humanity’s Team was founded based on the idea that almost all of our common challenges are as a result of our incomplete views about God, Life and one-another.
Humanity’s Team proposes a Spirituality that enlarges and enhances humanity’s current beliefs in ways that could change how we live with each other, bringing peace and harmony to our planet at last. This Spirituality is an expansion of all our present theologies; an updating of them; a refreshing of them, rendering all of our current sacred teachings even more relevant to our present day and time.
Key to this Spirituality is a belief that God is not separate from anyone or anything — and neither are we. Humanity’s Team’s core principle is We Are All One.
Since Africa is considered to be the Cradle of Humankind – whilst honouring and celebrating Oneness as it is found in all cultures, traditions and religions – Humanity’s Team South Africa has felt particularly called to play a part in the reclaiming and promoting of uBuntu – I am because we are as Africa’s ancient gift of Oneness to the world since we were found in South Africa in 2005 by Anna-Mari Pieterse who also became the Country Coordinator.
