Building Green Houses in Peru and a School in Malawi, Africa
Work with Deepak Chopra: In keeping with her dedication to spreading "practical spirituality," Wendy teamed up with best-selling author and spiritual teacher, Deepak Chopra, to create a provocative six-part video series Jesus and the Awakening to God-Consciousness based on Chopra's book The Third Jesus: The Christ We Cannot Ignore. The series was first shown on public television stations around the United States in 2009, and explores the very real differences between the historical Jesus, the Jesus of the Church and the mystical Jesus.
Grassroots Spiritual Activism: U.S. Department of Peace: Deeply dedicated to the reduction and prevention of violence in all its forms, in 2004 Wendy boldly approved the founding of a Unity Center-based grassroots group supporting the bill to establish a federal U.S. Department of Peace. Still strong and active today, the group has expanded far beyond The Unity Center and has affiliated groups throughout all of California.
Awakened World Film Festival: As a long time leader in the Association for Global New Thought, Wendy assisted in the creation of the first-ever film festival to showcase films dedicated to bringing forth a new and awakened world. Producers, directors and actors came together in Santa Barbara, California with attendees from all walks of life to examine the roles of Spirit, Self and Society in a changing world.
India and Italy: Dalai Lama: Wendy has been an active participant in three "Synthesis Dialogues" held in Dharmsala, India in 1999 and in Italy in 2001 and 2004, which brought the world's leading thinkers to dialogue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet.
Turkey: Abraham Path Initiative: In 2006 Wendy traveled to Istanbul, Turkey as part of the planning for the Abraham Path Initiative, in partnership with the Harvard Negotiation Project. This project's goal is to open up a pilgrimage route in the Middle East retracing the footsteps of the prophet Abraham, helping to bridge the gulf between religions and bring inter-faith healing.
Malawi, Africa: Malawi School Project: Having assisted in raising almost $23,000 in 2008, Wendy and her family joined together with Build-On and the Malawi School Project to help build two new schools in the Kusungu District of Malawi, Africa, and fund their 3-year adult literacy program.
Peru and Guatemala: Wendy's Travel With A Purpose groups have built greenhouses in Peru, funded micro-finance loans in Guatemala and assisted in the development and distribution of fair trade products from Central and South America while making friends all along the way.
