The Fountain For the Natural Order of Our Existence
with Jyoti, Bethany Yarrow & Rufus Cappadocia, Lawrence Bloom & Mindahi Crescencio Bastida Muños

Our system is broken because 8 white men own more than half the world’s money. Our system is broken because the climate is changing and the signs of chaos are all around us. It’s broken because we have lost our ability to connect to Nature, to our true selves, and to what it is to be human. The Kogi of the La Sierra Nevada of Colombia tell us that the ending is falling into the beginning, and we will complete this process in 2026. The beginning will be those individuals who are moving forward based on the original principles of unity, respect, reciprocity, inter-connectedness and heart. The Earth and our communities are counting on us to recognize each other and come to the table to weave the gifts each brings into a strong response to these times. On this evening, we will come together in community to energize our collective mind. Join us as we discuss the creation of The Fountain and its principles of Sacred Economics.

The Fountain is a collective of many hands and many hearts, and many good, strong minds. Its mission is to restore an economic model that is based on feminine principles of reciprocity and collaboration guided by Nature and the Sacred. And to do that, the keepers of indigenous wisdom and culture have been brought together with people who understand how business and financial systems work. We are taking the best lessons of what it means to work together in harmony with nature.
The Fountain is both an experiment – for who knows what we are ultimately creating – and it is most definitely an intention. We know what doesn’t work, and we know what works in different contexts and cultures. We are ready to help humanity move beyond an extractive model of accumulating wealth and hoarding of capital. We are ready to become the next generation of humanity – one that supports life, that nurtures growth, that wields compassion in the boardroom and that puts our humanity at the center.

The Unity Concert brings awareness to the need to return the Black Hills to the Great Sioux Nation. As stated, “We anticipate that if the Black Hills are returned to their Native guardians, it will impact how we treat endangered sacred sites around the world and will be a catalytic step toward reweaving the sacred fabric of our planet.” Through this work collaborative relationships with many indigenous communities and organizations that are focused on economic, social and environmental solutions have developed, creatively addressing the global challenges of our times.
