Astraea.net is a portal to Big Picture thinking, with access to holonic tools and techniques, and information on services we offer.
Astraea came on-line in 1999 with The Big Picture Story which outlines the accident of existence from the begining of time until today and explored "the meaning of life". We added pages discussing human perspective in physical, intellectual and spiritual dimensions aimed at helping others self-develop. We published a newsletter for four years (2003-2007) which discussed news and views relevant to enlightened change, and this evolved into our blog, to which we regularly post views on news. And we've been offering coaching and training since before Astraea went live, in areas from business planning to healthy living; our big picture approach leans to biomimicry, using a holonic perspective and experiential learning.
Our passion is to balance humanity's desire for fairness and equity for all life against the need to consume resources and the desire to control resources. We favour The Golden Rule (do unto others as you would have them do to you) over the golden rule (he who has the gold makes the rules). Money and ethics are not mutually exclusive and together offer a solution to the challenges of the world today. Consume fairly, invest ethically and, when you have enough, help the world. We have an open policy and aim to make a positive contribution to the noosphere - the emerging web of global conscience. We hope you will benefit from ths website, perhaps join our community, or come on a course. If you feel passionately about what we do you might even want to join us as we try to do the right thing the right way!
