Mission statement:

 

Jazz Cosmos is a consortium of individuals, organizations and initiatives that seeks to harness the creative, spiritual and unifying principles inherent in America’s quintessential musical heritage in pursuit of an arts-driven revolution in creativity and consciousness.

Vision statement

That humanity finds itself at a crossroads requires little elaboration at this juncture in history.

Jazz Cosmos responds to this moment by probing deep into the improvisatory foundations of human creativity and the realm of consciousness that underlies all of creation.

Inspired by an emergent worldview called Integral Theory, age-old spiritual wisdom unites with cutting-edge findings in the sciences and the creative vitality of the arts to yield a new paradigm of personal, educational and societal flourishing.  

Cultural, disciplinary, and ideological boundaries dissolve as prevailing materialist accounts of consciousness open up to new ways of understanding ourselves from the deepest dimensions of soul.

A new, arts-driven story of the sacred emerges to remind humanity of its transcendent core and inherent interconnectedness—among individuals and cultures, between human beings and the natural world, and most foundationally, with the eternal, cosmic source from which the infinite diversity of creation unfolds.  

If the creativity and consciousness revolution is to come about in society, it will need to take hold in the educational sector. Several constituent organizations and initiatives are thus central to the Jazz Cosmos vision.

The Alliance for the Transformation of Musical Academe (ATMA)

The Alliance for the Transformation of Musical Academe fundamentally reconceives the nature of the musician, music teacher, musical scholar/visionary and music studies paradigm around the creative, spiritual (atma translates as soul), social justice and peace ideals of the Jazz Cosmos vision.  

The Consortium for Consciousness Studies in Higher Education (CCSHE)

The Consortium for Consciousness Studies in Higher Education works from the broader academic sector itself toward this arts-driven transformation by promoting an integral paradigm of consciousness.

JAZZ COSMOS Think Tank

Jazz Cosmos Think Tank  brings together thought leaders from a broad sector of society—including business, government, education, arts, humanities, medicine, sciences, religion, and social and environmental activism—to engage in far-reaching visioning around an integral revolution in creativity and consciousness that is inspired by jazz and its improvisatory and spiritual foundations.

 

The International Society for Improvised Music (ISIM)

The International Society for Improvised Music, just beginning its second decade of events around the globe, promotes performance, education, research and transdisciplinary application of improvisatory principles across fields. )
