Wisdom In Nature has four core strands providing a framework for dialogue, reflection and action. These four strands weave together a range of supporting values into a more coherent whole. Each strand comprises an intention for two supporting movements: a movement ‘away from’ ; and a movement ‘towards’.
Our intention, thus, is to facilitate a movement away from states, processes, and paradigms that contribute to imbalances in the social and wider ecology, and move towards ones that are nurturing, wholesome, in alignment with our natural order (fitrah), and that help restore ecological balance (mizan).
The two movements in each of the four strands are summarised in the (provisionally worded) table below.
All are underpinned by the concept of Engaged Surrender.
Away from concentration of power amongst the rich and privileged;
Towards more equalisation of power that honours diversity, draws out consensus and creativity, and empowers all.
The above four interconnected strands are underpinned by a nonviolent, process-oriented activism, expressed through a contemplative dimension within the framework of Islam (Surrender to the Divine).
