It is clear to all that humanity is now at the threshold of a new age. The scientific advancements of the last few decades, including quantum mechanics and the principle of holography, have broadened our horizons of reality into new dimensions. Science today proves with clear logic that which before was considered to be the domain of mysticism or philosophical speculation. These discoveries raise our understanding of human existence to a higher level, the universe and the laws that animate it. The proven effect of thought over matter, of the influence of the observer over the observed, of the complex interconnections between all phenomena and other such discoveries have brought with them bold new developments in the fields of science, sociology, psychology, medicine, philosophy and even spirituality. We may say that our perception of ourselves and the universe around us, which before was limited only to physical aspects, has now also expanded to the vast domain of the “invisible”, following a change in the scientific approach of what can be measured and verified and more importantly, what should be studied and how to do that, since now it is clear that the “invisible” aspects have a paramount role in influencing all phenomena, including that phenomena which is strictly material. We should not underestimate the capital importance of this broadened perspective, because this new and deeper vision makes us begin to be aware of new elements, which before were totally ignored, and which are necessary for achieving health and happiness in the individual life as well as maintaining a harmonious and balanced society.
We support the unlimited freedom of the individual to practice spirituality. Our aim is to create the legal, social and mental space that allows for a free manifestation of spiritual actions in all their different shapes and settings.
Spiritual freedom thus means the right to integrate a divine perspective into the MANY facets of life. Work, family, friends, food, love, sleep, exercise or reading can be equally important dimensions of a spiritual practice - as well as church going and prayer can.
The work of SOTERIA is directed to acknowledge the growing number of people, who decide to follow an 'alternative' spiritual path in private as well as public spheres of their lives.

SPIRITUAL HUMAN RIGHTS
All human rights are based on the intuitively understanding of the inherit dignity of man, which in itself implies a spiritual view on mankind’s undeniable right for personal freedom and liberty. Still, the free and full unfoldment of the spiritual potentials of human life was not in the priority of the times and circumstances under which the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was formulated more then 60 years ago.
Spiritual human rights are today yet to be formulated and ratified by international society based on the ageless science of mankind’s inner nature. Even when modern science today confirms these immanent principles of inner nature, the judicial institutions as well as social and commune paradigms still lack to integrate these aspects in the common understanding of human rights.
Soteria International argues that the needs and potentials of mankind’s inner nature should not serve only as the basis of the human rights in principle, but also as a practical measure of to what degree the human dignity is secured in every aspect of life. Spiritual Human Rights thus signals at possible failures of humanity within society and protect the freedom of our souls.
International Conference: Berlin, 16th-17th of September 2009
Venue: Brunnenstraße 147, 10115 Berlin
The Peace for the 21st Century conference aims at opening new horizons and depths leading to sustainable future peacemaking.
The world today faces a growing state of conflict. The conflicts do not appear only between but also within states and are present even in the heart of the western world, in the form of terrorism. In this intense and general state of conflict we need a better understanding of the roots of conflict and the principles of peace. Through understanding these subjects we may gain awareness and control over the current processes and be able to attain true peace.
