Dr. Craig F. Schindler
Dr. Craig F. Schindler’s life has been devoted to one big, overarching question: What will it really take to bring about a shift in consciousness and action that’s needed for us to overcome the global threats to our future and move us forward as a species to our next level of conscious evolution? On that quest, he got his law degree at Stanford University and a Ph.D. in psychology and ethics from UC Berkeley and the Graduate Theological Union. He has taught at Stanford, Harvard, Trinity College and UC Santa Cruz. He is the president of Project Victory that has facilitated national dialogues, pioneered methods of conflict resolution and trained 30,000 in compassionate leadership. He has developed and taught The Wisdom Leadership Intensive: On Mindfulness and Compassion.
Albert Einstein expressed the dilemma we face in the nuclear age: “The problems we have created cannot be solved at the same level at which we created them. We need a new way of thinking.” The human-caused threats to life require us to make an evolutionary leap in our consciousness - a transformation in our way of thinking and being. Since I was a young man, I have been passionately engaged with the quest to find the way out of our dilemma. How can we transcend our destructive patterns of fear and greed, hatred and violence? How can we enlighten oneself and humanity?
