Whales and Dolphins have lived in PEACE on Earth for millions of years. They are integral to the biological balance of the planet, and they provide a golden model for intuitive intelligence, community and play. They are the most immense, intelligent and physically powerful creatures on the planet… yet they are also of the most gentle. Their peaceful ways and their willingness to connect with humanity despite the lack of mutual respect they often receive, is in many ways benevolent. We have much to learn from them.
New Earth Creations is a multi-medium creative collective, inspired by the fundamental mission to unify, empower and inspire positive change on planet Earth through creative expression and experience. A gathering of like-spirited individuals committed to uplifting humanity's consciousness regarding fundamental global issues, so that those issues can be approached with ACTION that stems from a higher state of BEING (as opposed to fighting fire with fire).
New Earth Creatins was founded in 2005 by writer / creator Chip Richards and visionary artist, Asheyana Richards -- on behalf of our planet's children and ALL who will be inheriting this beautiful Earth. The project is currently headquartered in Northern New South Wales, Australia, where the couple live with their 8-year-old son Joshua, and draws upon artistic creative endeavor from all around the world. Along with a steady stream of conscous creative initiatives, the NEC team is now activating the vision for the New Earth Sanctuary -- a sustainable, creative life retreat center and animal sanctuary.
In June of 2006, the Peace in the Water project was launched during the International Whaling Commission (IWC) meeting, as a way of giving people around the world a focused opportunity to cultivate a higher vision and send out a different message for our oceans and it’s inhabitants – one of appreciation, connection, preservation and PEACE.
After spending several months connecting in seemingly miraculous ways with whales and dolphins in the wild, while simultaneously exploring various traditional pathways of protest and activism, we came to the deep realization that the greatest thing we could do to help the Cetacean community (and in turn, the planet) ... is to BE MORE LIKE THEM. Whatever initiatives we undertake on their behalf must express their incredibly energies of peace, joy and connective, positive power. We realized that if we could learn to express the Delphic and Whale spirit in how we live, that would be a huge first step toward not only preserving the Cetaceans, but our own race as well. We too must learn to open hearts wherever we go, simply by being who we are.
We took this intention to the waters and asked, "How best can we serve?" The answer was simple and clear: "SEE US FREE. Fill your hearts and minds not with images of our destruction, but with visions of our sacred song lines and communal ways being honored and celebrated in the world. Invite us to be here with you. See us in communion with your own race as we all come into the full realization that we are ONE family under the sun."
The project has grown organically since then, and this year we have launched this web space as a global gathering place for conscious initiatives and water / cetacean-based creative projects. So far, people from over 70 NATIONS have tuned in since we went live in June of 2008, among them many brilliant artists, thinkers and visionaries.
In one sense this is about our Oceans and Cetaceans, but in another, this is all about humanity learning once again to step up and unify our voice … and SING THE SAME SONG.
IT IS TIME. Let’s start right now by bringing PEACE in the WATER.
In the Humpback whale family, it is the males who sing. Their song is deeply complex and poetic with verse and chorus, and much like human music, it constantly changes and evolves over time. Science has learned much about their song, but one unexplained fact remains… that even though the Humpback’s song is constantly changing and the whales themselves are spread far and wide, at any given moment, ALL of the humpbacks of a given region - are all SINGING THE SAME SONG.
Within virtually every culture in the planet, prayer is a doorway into the realms of the miracle. Scientific and metaphysical research alike attests to the very real power of unified, feeling based intention and prayer.
