What We Do

The Focus of Our Efforts

Knowledge, Research and Education

The Knowledge and Education work stream of the SSP network has the following objectives:

1. Conduct joint research at the intersection of science, applied spirituality, and policy applications. This includes collaborating on papers, presenting at conferences, organizing seminars within and outside the network, and producing edited books.
2. Engage with communities, particularly schools, colleges, and universities, to develop programs that promote a new education paradigm based on wisdom thinking or principles.
3. Encourage members to participate in overall network activities or specific ongoing research projects. Initially, some research projects have been discussed between interested scholars and the SSP network, which will evolve into ongoing collaborative works. This stream also invites regular presentations of research projects or educational initiatives pursued by members, fostering a deeper and more fruitful collective endeavor.

Social Practice

The Social Practice work stream of the SSP network has the following objectives:

  1. To support, encourage, and build the capacity of policymakers and senior public servants to incorporate spiritual wisdom into public policy decision-making.

  2. To work with communities in villages to learn how their spiritual values can be integrated into public policy.

  3. Form relevant partnerships, advocacy programs, and documentation to achieve the first two objectives.

    We propose to collaborate with like-minded organizations that have well-established grassroots programs for community outreach, as well as think tanks and other entities with access to public policy practitioners. In close collaboration with our Knowledge work stream, we will develop various teaching modules for universities and colleges, workshops for civil society groups, and short courses for public servants. Lessons learned from our community-level work will inform our training courses and advocacy efforts with policymakers, and vice versa—insights gained from our work with policymakers will enhance our community initiatives.

    Our initial fieldwork will begin in India and Thailand.
