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.
I like to think of our challenges as weaving. We are all weavers. The weaver constructs the warp, anchoring it to the loom, and then, by working the weft in and through the warp, creates patterns and the entire tapestry. The Epic of Evolution, in scientific form, is the warp on which all present and future meaning for our lives must be woven. There is no single correct way in which the weaving will take shape, no single authorized manner in which the Epic must appear in our worldviews. All of the various weavers of meaning will find something common in the warp. In the cultural crises that face us all, each will learn from how others move within the loom’s constraints and possibilities. We humans are the cultural religious animals of evolution on our planet. We are here to weave the spiritualities that are lifegiving for our phase of the Epic of Evolution and for the next generation.

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.
