One River Foundation



One River Foundation

In an effort to clarify and focus my efforts promoting Perennial Wisdom I revived, with my friend and colleague Frank Levy, the One River Foundation first established in 2001. With permission from Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul, and Mary the foundation’s name comes from his song River of Jordan: “There is only one river, there is only one sea; it flows through you, it flows through me….”

One River Foundation is a global network of spiritually independent seekers, creatives, activists, and holy rascals reclaiming and proclaiming the Perennial Wisdom at the mystic heart of humanity’s religions.

One River currently sponsors four projects:

  • The World Wisdom Bible, advancing a spirituality rooted in Perennial Wisdom;
  • Cup of Wisdom, building community through conversation around The World Wisdom Bible;
  • One River Wisdom School, fostering the study of the sacred texts of the world’s religions and personal iritual practice; and
  • Holy Rascals, training people to creatively engage with the myths, stories, symbols, and rituals of the world’s religions.

One River Foundation envisions a just, compassionate, and thriving world guided by Perennial Wisdom and the ethic of interdependence it reveals.
