About Andrew Harvey Andrew Harvey is an author, religious scholar and teacher of mystic traditions, known primarily for his popular nonfiction books on spiritual or mystical themes, beginning with his 1983 ‘A Journey in Ladakh’. Love, Magic, Miracles Conference 2012 Andrew believes that three things in this moment in life are inter-related. In this impassioned talk given at the Findhorn Foundation’s 2012 Love, Magic and Miracles conference he tells us that “the human race is in a massive, menacing evolutionary crisis affecting the future of humanity and nature; there is a great death of the environment, corporate fascism is dominating the world and the new age is willing people to sleep when people need to be alive and active; as a result of this a massive birth is also taking place, the largest movement of civil reaction with two million NGOs on the planet.” ​He explains that many of us are not with ​this birth​, ​w​e are fragmented​ and​ disorganised​.​ Time​ ​is running out​ for the human race​. ​We must rise to the challenge with ​”the magnificence of souls on fire with love for God and the world” using a transformational force, which ​he ​calls​ Sacred Activism. Andrew ​speaks of people who ​demonstrate ​this: Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Lech Walesa, Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, describing their lives of wisdom and love.​ ​​He then goes on to describe the ​”​birth of a holy new kind of human being​”, one that is​ a “conscious divine being​”. He believes that an ​evolutionary leap​ must happen​ and that ​​​previous ​levels of ​consciousness​​​ are​​ simply ​​​unable to deal with the destructive systems in​ place. ~ Alex Wright From the moment Andrew stepped into the centre, he commanded the stage like a Shakespearian actor in the throes of passion and for two hours didn’t stop for a single pause. The heat was turned up high and we sat in a simmering cauldron of ideas and intellect. In the opening ceremony of Saturday evening Andrew had expressed his wish, “That we all wake up a commitment to put love into action, now before the world is destroyed.” This was the absolute theme of his talk on Monday night, expressed with relentless fervour, the mind of Oxford academia merged with the heart of a mystic. If Robert Holden was yin, Andrew Harvey was yang. The force of his passion was apparent when he recited Rumi, “Love’s horse will carry you home.” One of the couplets he asked us to remember captures the energy of his presentation, “Mount the stallion of love and do not fear the path – Love’s stallion knows the way exactly.” For me certainly it was a wild ride in the Hall, forging ahead into the unknown, being challenged, inspired, awakened into the fire. ~ Excerpts from the Communications Conference Team 2012
