About Commonway

Commonway Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to the creation of a society that is in line with our deepest spiritual values – a global society that includes all peoples.

Recognizing that we will not solve humanity’s global problems with the same attitudes, philosophies and consciousness that created the problems in the first place, Commonway teaches people how to shape a world that works for all.

The core of Commonway’s work is inclusivity, the concept that all of our lives are inextricably linked, one to the other.

None of the challenges of the 21st Century can be solved in isolation. It is narrow focus and myopic thinking that created the problems in the first place. What we need is a search for solutions based on inclusivity, solutions that extend across relationships.

Commonway provides a positive understanding of human interactions and change, leading to creative, effective solutions for our turbulent times.

Together, we can survive and thrive in these times.
