FOUNDATION FOR ONE WORLD, ONE HUMANIT Y, ONE CONSCIOUSNESS
«In today's evolutionary process, mankind – that is to say mankind's awakening – stands in the focus. It is that one step in consciousness – from the myth of separation – into the always existing One, indivisible reality. The caterpillar becomes a butterfly. Once this evolutionary step of human beingness is accomplished, humanity understands itself as an unseparated whole in the service of everyone and everything at the same time. Thereby a new culture can arise: Heaven on Earth.»

A S P IR IT UA L S IT E O F G R E AT P OW E R Since more than 15 years Villa Unspunnen is successfully established as a place of stillness and encounter in the village of Wilderswil, in the Bernese Oberland. The site is beautifully embedded in the powerful mountain environment of Eiger, Mรถnch and Jungfrau, and simultaneously providing a view on the silvery-blue Lake Brienz. This spiritual site of great power and stillness is now being prepared for the next generation, in the form of a campus in spirit. The foundation "Golden Wind" serves as the basic structure for this campus.

The foundation places itself in the service of humanity becoming conscious. The core goals of the foundation are the universal spirituality and the universal cooperation in their inseparable unity. In the context of a cooperative culture integrating all beings, the foundation aims to explore, encourage and convey these core goals. The foundation is a non-profit organisation and active internationally

Campus in Spirit
A N E X T E VO LU T IV E S T E P The foundation «Golden Wind» is the base on which the Campus in Spirit is set. In the centre of the Campus in Spirit is THAT which is eternal and cannot be put into words – now, right now – and holds all names. The Campus in Spirit combines universal spirituality and universal cooperation, which is to say conscious being and becoming which is in harmony with the whole. Universal spirituality is inclusive, respecting, embracing and at the same time transcending all spiritual paths: IT IS. The universal cooperation relies on the first life-impulse of each human being: to cooperate. In the sense of all and everything at once. This is the big adventure of humanity. The Campus in Spirit helps to discover this, to investigate and to practice it, finally as a way of living together. The universal (pathless) path is simple, direct and only needs an open, truthful heart.
PAUSE FOR A MOMENT AND NOW, SEE HOW THIS SITE OF GREAT POWER SERVES HUMANITY AS A CAMPUS IN SPIRIT.
It is autumn, and the first coloured leaves are dancing towards the misty ground. Around 50 people of different age are gathering in the big hall. Just now, they all are turned inwards, in silence, each of them in his very own manner and yet connected with everything that is. They came here to investigate on how and by what they might contribute to a local-global shift in awareness. What does this mean for oneâ€™s own life and as a citizen of the world? It isn't an easy task that this group of people has decided to tackle. However, by being together in this conscious way, new possibilities arise.
In the park and gardens, two people are simultaneously making preparations to overwinter flowers, plants and shrubs. They cut back the rose bushes, weed and rake around and thereby contribute to the beauty of the site. In the «Room of Stillness» it currently isn't that still: young people from 15 nations are meeting here and discuss about the spirit and purpose of a «Global Council» which is to represent humanity in order to approach global challenges with a wise overall view. In the library, which is located in the first floor of the Villa building, are found students who are writing a master's thesis on «Universal Spirituality and Economy for the Common Good». Three trainees are staying here too, surfing on the internet for research. They help organising the "Global Friend's Retreat" to be held next year. Meanwhile, inspired cooking takes place in the kitchen. The scent of herbs and roasted nuts permeates the house. All eat together here, whether guests, students, trainees or people living permanently on the site. Sometimes people here dance together and celebrate life, sometimes they gather around a fire, and sometimes they all sit in silence. People who desire to simply develop conscious being-ness join from the village and the environs. At some point it gets very quiet. The stars sparkle in the dark night and the Jungfrau glitters – barely observable – mystically in the soft moonlight.
