Mission & Approach

Mission & Approach Overview

Hidden Leaf Foundation’s philanthropy is grounded in the belief that the worldview and practices of the dominant global society must undergo fundamental changes for humankind to pursue a more just, ecologically healthy, and compassionate society. We also believe that the work of manifesting inner wisdom in the outer world is an essential pathway for advancing such a life-affirming society. Thus, Hidden Leaf’s mission is to expand inner awareness within social change organizations in order to enhance the effectiveness of the progressive movement. We do this by promoting transformative awareness practices which help us still our minds and reflect on our own internal conditioning to align our values, thinking, and actions to advance a more just, ecologically healthy and compassionate society.
