“They tried to bury us,
but didn’t know that we are seeds…”
(a saying of uncertain origin)
We are a grouping of spiritually centred people and organisations of diverse traditions, coming together in the One Spirit Alliance. OSA does not have a membership but facilitates collaboration and offers a network of contacts to enable greater communication, understanding and cooperation between groups with different approaches but who share an acknowledgement of the one spirit that unites. The aim is for OSA to grow organically like a honeycomb of connected yet unique cells, seeking to clarify shared aims and values while providing whatever platforms or vehicles may be required to further cooperation and dynamic interaction.
- to bring together the diversity of spiritual traditions while appreciating their differences
- to create a honeycomb of connections and co-creative endeavour which communicates our shared vision more widely
- to promote and offer a flexible framework for mutual support and for discovering the unifying aspects of all paths
- to work with others to further knowledge and understanding of our common heritage, our concern for the environment and to support ethical ways of living which benefit the whole.
- We have respect for the Self of one and allWe honour all forms of planetary life
- We uphold principles of inclusion, co-operation and community

Unity & higher consciousness for a new world
“Let everyone contribute their natural talents or acquired skills to the greater benefit of all in the community. Let us utilise the wealth of our land to provide abundance in all areas of life for the people.” Michael Tellinger 2005.
The One Spirit Alliance was formed in 2013 following an event on ‘Spirituality for a World in Crisis ‘ which drew together over 100 individuals and organsiations who responded to the inner call to more deeply connect with others who also shared a spiritual intention and vision for the future
During this event there was an unmistakeable request for some kind of framework that would enable greater connectivity. Since then the early stages of a flexible structure has been forming, guided by an Initiating Group comprising representatives of some of the early contributing organisations . A second gathering in 2014 in ‘Spirit in Action’ took this another step forward. From this it we agreed to hold a day event ( November 22nd 2014) for groupings to more deeply share their purpose and endeavours so each of us can recognise our role of service within a larger whole.
As we awaken to the ‘new story’ that is emerging amongst us so there is a growing need to honour both the diversity of each institution and grouping and, at the same time, honour the Unity of Spirit that we all share..
Our planetary system seems to be at a point of seismic change with a growing recognition that the old structures of fear and control, of separation and competition, of materialistic greed regardless of other life form, of our fragile eco-systems and the deprivation and distress of so many on global levels- no longer serve. Instead we re beginning to become part of something new that is emerging. This is happening at economic, social, environmental , human and spiritual levels.
The soul family- a global community of people sharing a deep sense of purpose in service is beginning to connect and steward the creation of a new form of civilisation….which reflects the timeless values of love, cooperation and stewardship” Morel Fourman
As the One Spirit Alliance works to bring about a deeper sense of connection and collaboration, an emphasis on contemplation leading to insight in action and an increasing alignment of intention, so we hope to generate a message of hope and create systems and structures that reflect spiritual principles, spiritual truths and spiritual values. If we can then hold a radiating vision that has greater magnetism than the contemporary ‘dreams’ that benefit just a few then a growing fabric of loving connectivity can make a significant contribution towards easing the transition to a new civilisation and- in religious terms- co-create ‘heaven on earth ‘
The steps and stages that the One Spirit Alliance is undertaking include:
1) Connecting and supporting each allied organisation and grouping by meeting together, sharing a website and events calendar, exchanging ideas and intentions, cooperating over speaker availability, mutual publicity and inspiration. This is in the early stages.
2) Providing opportunities for deep exchange of each organisation’s purposes as to engage mutual understanding of how each is placed in an overall pattern that together makes up the whole
3) From this we hope a coherent alignment of intention will emerge at a deep level and be expressed as a ‘mission statement’ in which all can play a part .
4) As this deeper connectivity grows so we hope to offer a vision of hope for the many who feel that their energies are lowered by the continuous flow of negative news and the prevailing paradigm of seperativeness, competition, greed and control of the many by the few
5) We see this as a contribution to the ‘new story’ for a new ‘soul-centred’ and ‘spirit filled’ future for all planetary life
