Consciousness precedes being – without a global revolution in the sphere of human consciousness a more humane society will not emerge.
Vaclav Havel
 

gaiamedia is a non-profit organization established in Basel on 23 July 1993, which communicates information leading to a holistic understanding of nature and human life.

A radical inner transformation and rise to a new level of consciousness might be the only real hope we have in the current global crisis brought on by the dominance of the Western mechanistic paradigm.
Stanislav Grof
 

The exploitation of Earth, the technical progress, and the steadily faster changing ecological and social conditions continue to endanger our environment and our existence. This rapid global trend confronts us with an unprecedented challenge of hitherto unknown complexity and urgency. A change of consciousness is needed – a better world is possible.

There is nothing wrong about this world. Wrong is simplky the way we are looking at it.
Henry Miller

We investigate good news, positive developments, and meaningful insights from various sources. We are convinced that a mindful and respectful acting in cooperation with our fellow human beings and in harmony with nature is desirable and that it will enable all of us a fair, peaceful and fulfilling life.
 

To understand the evolution of consciousness one has to hold on the evolution of the ability to learn.
Julian Jaynes

Who thinks sharp, becomes a pessimist, who thinks deep becomes an optimist.

Evolving our consciousness is not something we do only for ourselves – it is something we also do for others…for all others, and for the earth.

Until 2009 Gaia Bazar in Basel offered literature about various aeras of life and spheres of knowledge, from Ayahuasca to Zen. At the Gaia Lounge interested people joined for discussions or visited lectures about this kind topics.

On the occasion of the 100th birthday of Albert Hofmann in 2006, we organized under the title “The Spirit of Basel” the international Symposium “LSD – Problem Child and Wonder Drug” (www.LSD.info). Followed two years later by the “World Psychedelic Forum” (www.psychedelik.info).

Until 2006 “gaiamedianews” was a printed Newsletter. Then we introduced the electronic GoodNewsLetter which in the meantime reaches readers from over 50 countries.
