Teachers at The Wisdom Foundation

Support Global Wisdom, for Our Future.

Many are concerned about humanity’s future. The world is moving faster than ever, and meanwhile the planet is full of conflict, greed, ego, selfishness, inequality, mental health issues, stress, and much more.

It’s been said that we are drowning in knowledge, but starving for wisdom. We’re changing that.

The Wisdom Foundation extracts ancient and evidence-based knowledge to move past our collective ego and create global spiritual awakening, religious unity, and a human future full of peace, abundance, and compassion.

How the Foundation Works

Content Creation

There has been no other time in history where we have so much access to the deep wisdom of the world's many spiritual traditions, as well as scientific research.

The Wisdom Foundation works to extract knowledge, create content at scale, and saturate the world with wisdom, for a better human future. This is done through media like Youtube videos, social media, articles, ebooks, and other helpful resources that get distributed worldwide.

It is also our goal to partner with the world's foremost spiritual teachers and research organizations. By collaborating with them, we can create powerful resources that help people and the world transform, as well as supporting those teachers financially to further grow their impact.
As a result, we believe that humanity can use that wisdom to create a future of peace, collaboration, innovation, abundance, and compassion for all.

Our Goals

Spiritual Awakening.

Call it salvation, liberation, enlightenment, or something else, it all involves transcending one thing: The ego.

Both ancient and modern teachers for millennia have taught the need to examine ourselves, move past the ego, and transcend to higher awareness.

This is not some far-out, New Age experience. This is a scientific psychological phenomenon that is accessible to all. By teaching the mystical practices at the core of every religion, all of humanity can access abundant wisdom, joy, peace, and compassion in their lives.

Religious Unity.

We believe religious unity is not just a pipe dream.
The evidence is clear that all religions and traditions point to the same spiritual experience humans have called God, or the Divine.

Through teachable practices, anybody in any religion, or no religion at all, can experience a deep sense of peace, joy, compassion and wisdom in life. We believe this can mean the end of religious conflict, which is so often the cause of conflict in family, politics, and war.

By unity we don't mean nobody disagrees, or there should be one world religion. We mean every practitioner can practice their religion, while having the intellectual understanding that at their core, other religions provide the same spiritual experience. This can be a source of great peace for all of humanity.

A Future of Peace, Abundance & Wisdom.

As part of extracting humanity's spiritual wisdom, we don't just teach meditation (though that is crucial). We also teach practical, evidence-based tools to help people become happier, healthier, more effective humans. This includes knowledge from the fields of nutrition, wellness, mental health, physical health, longevity, and more. We believe that inner peace and health, overflows onto others and makes the world a better place.

In addition, we also work to raise awareness for solutions on global social issues, such as sustainability and climate change, as well as the future of AI. It's our goal to be part of the ongoing conversation to solve these problems, for the good of us all.

“I believe there’s nothing more important happening on the planet right now than the rising consciousness of humanity that is coming about through the healing and growth of every one of us.

I’m passionate about our work at The Wisdom Foundation because we are supporting important worldwide projects, from a range of faith backgrounds, that are playing an integral role in this global awakening process.

The future starts now, and it starts with each and every one of us. As each one of us moves towards our purpose of helping one another in whatever way we feel called to, humanity wins on every level – education, health, social justice, environmental protection, world peace…

When there is peace in the hearts of every individual, there will be peace on the planet.

Thank you for supporting this important work.”

Streaming services like Netflix are multi-billion dollar companies that are based on a simple, cheap monthly subscription of less than $20.

Our goal is to recruit 20,000 donors to commit to at least $5 a month. For less than the cost of a monthly streaming subscription, you can support the spread of deep wisdom all over the planet.

That’s $100,000 we will send every month to teachers and organizations that are spreading the wisdom of mindfulness and personal growth.
