Art is the missing language that can bridge the gap in communication when words are not enough. Art has the ability to heal and help us to reach our full human potential.
After spending 15 months running for Congress in Congressional District 3 in Arizona (Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek Carefree, New River) The FUSION Foundation Co-Founder - Annie Loyd stepped down and made a commitment to dedicate her time to building a coalition from the public, private, corporate and government sectors addressing the challenge of immigration reform. Voices for Civil Dialogue is one of the many projects to emerge from this work. Voices for Civil Dialogue is a transpartisan, inclusive coalition of community leaders dedicated to genuine, respectful cooperation, involving groups and individuals from all sectors of society.
Answering the call made by community leaders and elected officials, Voices for Civil Dialogue is creating the conditions for diplomatic solutions for immigration reform. “It is time to convene diverse interest in dialogue and conversation to create responsible and effective solutions for immigration reform,” states Loyd. Proposed solutions focus on reducing the rhetoric through civil dialogue, thus affirming Arizona’s diverse intellectual resources, which strengthen economic growth. Loyd comments, “It is time to invite representatives from all sides to the table and conduct respectful and meaningful conversations.”
One Planet Media publishing is a cooperative with The FUSION Foundation and One Planet magazine to serve as the cultural vehicle that gives voice to the ideas and solutions of our revered societal leaders and provide a forum for our new cultural leaders. It provides a home for those who desire to Stand Up and Stand Out. Even though our culture has become very noisy with judgment of cultural significance being devoted to the bottom line, Fusion Publishing will adhere to a high standard based on evolutionary principles that elevates our thoughts, deepens our understanding and promotes connected-ness.
Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler Ross, Pope John Paul II, King Hussein and Mother Therese are just a few of the cultural voices that have left us in the past decade. Nelson Mandela, Arch Bishop Tutu, the Dalai Lama, Dr. Gladys Taylor McGarey, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Maya Angelou, Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter, are all formidable cultural voices and leaders that have transcended their individual professional pursuits to influence the world in which we live and who are now in their twilight years. We stand on their shoulders and so many others.
Who will rise up and take their place? Who will be the peacekeepers? Who will be the scientists who will lead us in discovery? Who will be the communication masters that evolutionize our language? Who will be the artists whose creations advance our understanding of ourselves? Who will be the Spiritual leaders who will guide us to tolerance and compassionate action?
One Planet Media can be counted on to identify these important voices and provide them the appropriate forum to share their insights and wisdom.

One Planet magazine is our tool for communication! One Planet magazine inspires and stimulates thinking, fosters dreams, and gives rise to action. In short, creating a better world for us all. The format of One Planet magazine is based on a 12 part, whole system design which seeks to bridge divides through an integrated, evolving, holistic approach. Each issue has a focus on one of the 12 segments of this design — such as economics, relationships, governance, technology, social justice, arts and culture, and the environment - while the other segments acknowledge and support that focus.
Systems collapsing upon themselves is part of the convergence into the evolution of a new system and the transition to a higher order. The reliance on current systems has disrupted our connectedness the evolution of democracy in the whole system design understands the intradependency of human nature and of tribal gathering.
We are all connected and the system must work within and from that basic elementary understanding. Supporting the development, sustainability and building the capacity of relationships between identifying needs and resources is the most basic and essential element of a system design that is a catalyst for evolution and creating humanistic change.
Dr. Barbara Marx Hubbard and the Foundation for Conscious Evolution created the Synergy Center. On a local basis this provides the opportunity for identifying key individuals in the particular piece of the pie. The FUSION Foundation has utilized this circle of opportunity to grow the organization and assist individuals, governmental, non governmental, non profit and for profit organizations, and corporations participate in the ongoing dialogue, resource allocation and identification of the principles of the best use practices and the communication distribution of the most current information through One Planet magazine.
