We exist to serve others, innovate, and make the world a better place, with a humble yet confident voice.
Our Mission

To consciously evolve a world that works for all.

Our Vision

To unleash the power of science and inquiry to help us notice what’s within us and between us, to create a more harmonious world for everyone around us.

 While Prosocial World is based on science, it is not just for scientists. It is also for activists, idealists, pragmatists, visionaries, and contemplative change agents; in short, anyone who has a prosocial worldview.


As such, it uniquely places the vision of spiritual seekers, who embark on different paths to self-discovery to consciously evolve a more harmonious and regenerative world, on a foundation of the most recent developments in evolutionary science.


These developments do not replace current knowledge of humanity but rather integrates it into a single coherent framework. It is the power of integration that enables PW to combine insights from fields as disparate as political science and mindfulness-therapy into a change method that can help any group clarify its valued goals, flexibly work around obstacles, and become a force for good in cultural evolution at larger social scales.


Ultimately, PW transforms into a neural network that moves our global society toward an interactive and balanced ecosystem of unity consciousness — one equitable and harmonious prosocial world.

Need a facilitator for one of your groups? 

If you are not already skilled at facilitating groups, the best way to adopt Prosocial is to be guided through the process by a trained facilitator. We have facilitators who work in all sectors including corporations, government departments, community groups, and others around the world. Some of the members of our community are also open to working for free with groups that have limited resources.
