Wheatley has spent the past seven years training leaders and activists from 35 countries on all continents to consciously choose to be Warriors for the Human Spirit. This is not a casual choice; it requires training and strong community to put service over self, to stand steadfast in crises and failures, and to work from unshakable faith that people can be generous, creative, and kind. It is the leader’s responsibility to create the conditions so that people can manifest these capacities and contribute, no matter how difficult the outer circumstances. Meg names these “Islands of Sanity.”
