The Foundation for Conscious Living is...
A grand vision.
A global movement.
Three powerful ideas in action.
The Foundation for Conscious Living is a non-profit organization committed to embodied Authenticity, Response-Ability, and Appreciation in partnership, community, society, and the planet. We’re creating a world in which everyone enjoys a flow of appreciation and co-creation, in an evolutionary (instead of fear-based) context.
The Foundation has grown out of Gay and Katie Hendricks’ 80+ years combined experience, exploration, and expertise in conscious living and loving. It expands upon the work of the Hendricks Institute, shares powerful ideas with those who need it most, and serves as a lasting legacy of optimism, creativity, and contribution.
We dream big.
Together, we can usher in a new era of human potential and flourishing. One where…
- Each of us lives in harmony of mind, body, and spirit. Aligned inside ourselves, we live our lives in expanding waves of creativity and integrity.
- All of our relationships honor the essence of ourselves and others, and every interaction is conducted with honesty and integrity.
- We all honor our organic spiritual nature. This connection forms the basis for evolutionary, co-creative partnerships at every scale.
Focus on what matters most.
Sparking massive change can be surprisingly simple! In our own lives and in working with thousands of people, we’ve seen the astonishing power of three ideas: Authenticity, Response-ability, and Appreciation.
If everyone on the planet—or enough of us to create a tipping point—grow these three ideas, we’ll shift into an unprecedented new era of appreciation, creativity, and evolution.
We believe everyone on the planet, regardless of location or income, deserves access to resources that support this shift.
What We Do
In our ongoing efforts, we sponsor research, resources, and outreach to individuals, communities, and organizations. Our programs include:
- The Big Leap Online Programs: A blossoming offering of programs facilitating support and connection at no cost for people and communities in civil unrest, trauma, and disasters, teaching them to access their internal resources and respond to challenging events in empowered ways and to create caring community.
- Media: We fund and produce projects with educational and entertaining messages for conscious living and loving.
- Recent Projects: Our Body Intelligence Hub invites you to listen to your body wisdom and let it guide you through your life, so that it can support your health and well-being. We recently supported The Conscious Loving Film Festival, which inspired innovative filmmakers to produce highly entertaining art that also contributes valuable insights to a world hungry for new and positive perspectives on love.
- Training: We offer quality training and resources for individuals, communities, and businesses committed to bringing these ideas to life and creating positive impact.
- Coaching: Our Big Leap Coaches have practiced and integrated both the most advanced body intelligence skills available, such as breathing and movement-based processes, and the reliable Conscious Loving map to thriving relationships that has been in circulation for several decades.
