Click here to see what a Universe Day group in San Francisco did at a previous annual Universe Day. Just like "Earth Day" events, we encourage you to invent your own local awareness celebrations, gatherings, creative partnerships with organizations, educational events, and community events. We dare you to inspire outside-the-box on ways to promote awareness for effectively reducing carbon emissions by using the new universe evolutionary perspective to create a more sustainable planet.
Please send us information about the local Universe Day events that you are creating at email@example.com and we will let others know about them. We will also be posting updates about our local San Francisco Universe day 2013 event in the Facebook window father down this page.
The basic mood of the future might well be one of confidence in the continuing revelation that takes place in and through the Earth. If the dynamics of the Universe from the beginning shaped the course of the heavens, lighted the Sun, and formed the Earth. If this same dynamism brought forth the continents and seas and atmosphere; if it awakened life in the primordial cell and then brought into being the unnumbered variety of living beings, and finally brought us into being and guided us safely through the turbulent centuries—there is reason to believe that this same guiding process is precisely what has awakened in us our present understanding of ourselves and our relation to this stupendous process. Sensitized to such guidance from the very structure and functioning of the Universe, we can have confidence in the future that awaits the human venture.

Authors and Luminaries Comments on the Universe for the 3rd Annual Universe Day
Universe Day is a unique and utterly special celebration, where the universal Ground of Being itself, underlying and giving rise to all of manifestation, is celebrated, honored, and given thanks for. Unlike parochial and specific-cultural celebrations of Spirit,
this is a celebration of cross-cultural and trans-individual Being itself, manifest so beautifully and exquisitely in the elegance, truth, goodness, and beauty of the entire universe itself and its extraordinary evolution, which is nothing less than Spirit-in-action. Please come and join us in this wonderfully important and profound celebration, this coming December 31
-- Ken Wilber
Ken Wilber is the world's leading “integral” philosopher. The author of such titles as A Brief History of Everything (1996) and A Theory of Everything (2000), his philosophy integrates body, mind, soul, and Spirit with self, culture, and nature. Integral philosophy is rapidly becoming a powerful presence in fields as diverse as politics and spirituality, psychology and business, medicine, and art. Revered as the “Einstein of consciousness,” Wilber has written sixteen books exploring different facets of human development and cultural evolution.
