Are you seeking integrated ways to co-create a better future for yourself and humanity?

A message from Dr. Gruder


I have learned over the past few decades from audience responses to my keynote addresses, training programs, and media appearances, is that the majority of us are unhappy with extremist and dystopian versions of how to deal with the erosion of personal freedom, societal wellbeing, and government effectiveness. People are looking for a positive unifying nonpartisan vision of the future that can simultaneously restores individual freedom, repairs social fabric, and establishes political sanity… along with ways to bring this vision to life through an integrated suite of mindsets, skills, and initiatives.

If you have found that other visions of humanity’s future fall short of the mark in some way, or if you are seeking more effective ways to convert an inspiring vision into practical action, I invite you to have a look around this website so you can discover if the vision and plan I am proposing is closer to what you’re seeking than another approaches you’ve encountered.

If it does, I encourage you to apply to become a free member of The Center Enlightened Self-Sovereignty, and to get involved in whatever ways, and to whatever extent, fits right for you.
