Healthy and Conscious Media
Evolutionary Guidance Media (EGM) is a theoretical framework designed to create a discipline in which the academic investigation of conscious media, socially-responsible media, green media, and spiritual, or transformative media can flourish. Broadly defined, EGM is media designed both in content and context specifically for the purpose for guiding and/or facilitating the societal emergence of transpersonal consciousness -- specifically planetary consciousness.
The c3: Center for Conscious Creativity was founded in 2004 to provide individuals like you with the resources to explore, encourage and fulfill the innate human drive toward Authentic Self-Expression.
c3 believes that as you dedicate yourself to full self-actualization and expression, the result is global transformation -- holding true to the theory that as the individual transforms so also does society.
