Here is the video recording and pictures of the ceremonial launching of Cloverleaf: Journal of Education in Evolvement and All Encompassing Spirituality on September 25, 2016 during the Seventh Annual Reflective Conference on Education to Globalize the Human Mind - We Are One: Living lives in All-Inclusiveness.
Hon. Bardish Chagger, Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, Minister of Small Business and Tourism, and the Member of Canadian Parliament for the riding of Waterloo officiated at the launching ceremony. She was assisted by Bob Chodos and Sandy Milne, both of Interfaith Grand River, Stephen Modell of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Kevin Nadjiwon a Member of Batchewana First Nation Band of Ojibways, Shiv Talwar and Fred Lawlor both of Spiritual Heritage Education Network Inc., the publisher of Cloverleaf.
The publisher organization is founded to help address our misguided yet persistent notion of “us” vs “them” through systematic education at all levels. Such a notion, besides being contrary to the spiritual truth, leads to an atmosphere of fear and mistrust making us incapable of perceiving common humanity or common good. In fact, underneath our diverse facades, we are one human family living in a global community of families sharing one commonwealth.
Without a meaningful and deep sense of oneness and commonwealth, human structures of family, neighbourhood, community, country or the planetary united nations as a whole are destined to a poor sense of belonging and lack of peace with individuals constantly in “fight or flight” due to stress wasting them constantly in ill health, unhappiness and lack of insight.
In such an atmosphere, democracies, nature or the climate has no chance of survival or sustainability.
The publisher is launching the Cloverleaf to disseminate its educational aspirations.
