New Ecospiritual Renaissance is a cultural movement and an expression of opinion. It is nonpolitical, with no party or confessional affiliations and was founded by the Ecospirituality Foundation, an organisation in consultative status with the United Nations.
The movement is inspired by the philosophy of Ecospirituality proposed by Giancarlo Barbadoro. The concept of ecospirituality arises from the experience of Natural Peoples, meaning those native populations that have resisted assimilation into the religions and ideologies of majority society. They remain on every continent as cultures that have maintained their contact with Mother Earth, understood as a point of reference for individual personal spiritual growth. Ecospirituality is the philosophy of Nature, an experience of inner harmony extending to include everything around us, with due respect for the environment and all forms of life. This philosophy is inspired by Nature in an overall sense, meaning not just the manifestation of its natural cycles, but also its mystical aspect as the depositary of a great cosmic mystery.
Ecospirituality leads to a reassessment of the relationship between the individual and the environment, so that all living creatures, as well as the planet itself, acquire equivalent value and dignity to that of mankind. The individual is no longer seen as the indisputable dominator of his world, but reverts to being kin to all life forms and to the planet itself, sharing an experience as part of an ecosystem orbiting in space. This offers the chance to engage harmoniously with the environment, both as a social dimension and in terms of contact with nature, showing respect for its harmony.
The philosophy of ecospirituality also results in a reassessment of culture and research from a point of view that is not anthropocentric and is free of ideological barriers, through dialogue respecting all ideas. This is then a culture of new understanding, combining science and spirituality without prioritising any field over any other.
