The Spiritual Naturalist Society is proud to announce that the Charter for Compassion and the SNS have recently become partner organizations. This will mean that the SNS has agreed to share Charter announcements with its members, subscribers, and the public; and the Charter will likewise provide a link to the SNS on its website, and has allowed the SNS to post its announcements to the Charter’s Facebook page.
The Charter for Compassion is a document that transcends religious, ideological, and national differences. Supported by leading thinkers from many traditions, the Charter activates the Golden Rule around the world.
The Charter has, so far, been signed by over 95,000 people and growing. As described on its website, “The Charter for Compassion is a cooperative effort to restore not only compassionate thinking but, more importantly, compassionate action to the center of religion, moral, and political life. Compassion is the principled determination to put ourselves in the shoes of the other, and lies at the heart of all religious and ethical systems.”
SNS Executive Director, Daniel Strain, says, “The motto of the Spiritual Naturalist Society has always been, “Happiness through Compassion, Reason, and Practice”. Given that our aim has been to highlight the foundational role of compassion in our practice, a partnership with the Charter for Compassion makes perfect sense. I’m sure our own members and readers will be interested to know about the progress of the Charter, and become a part of its noble efforts.” The Society is proud to have partnership agreements with several excellent organizations with compatible values.
The Spiritual Naturalist Society works to spread awareness of spiritual naturalism as a way of life, develop its thought and practice, and help bring together like-minded practitioners in fellowship.
