Dr. Nancy Roof (USA)
Founder-Editor, Kosmos Journal for Global Transformation
“My vision for transformation is this: Our family is all humanity and all life. Our home is planet earth. Theatre of Transformation is a gift to the world. Presents times are so dire politically, in so many ways, that it has catalyzed an awakening in people that we haven’t seen before. It’s a paradox: when things get to the worst, they also get to the best. People are awakening like they have never awakened before, and wanting to participate. We used to think information was what people needed, but now people are informed, they know what’s going on, they want to participate, I am very encouraged by this, and by the quality work of Theatre of Transformation Academy.”
Nancy Roof, Ph.D. is the founder of the award-winning Kosmos Journal: Global Transformation in Harmony with all Life, based on evolving interior development and cultural values as they impact globalization and world community. Kosmos Associates, Inc. is also actively involved in the founding of the Global Commons movement with James Quilligan of the Global Commons Trust.
Nancy won the 2009 Images and Voices of Hope award for journalism as a tool to inform, inspire and engage individual and collective participation in a global shift to higher-level thinking. In 2004, Kosmos was nominated by Utne for excellence. Her testimony on the human dimension of the United Nations was distributed to the US President and Congress.
As a founder of Transpersonal Psychology (late 70s), she served as a spiritual guide to individuals for 20 years. In the late 80s, she began to define the field of global transformation at the United Nations, where she successfully lobbied for elevated global standards in international treaties and co-founded the Values Caucus (1994) and the Spiritual Caucus (2000).
Working with 78 international organizations in war zones for over two years, she recognized the traumatic effect of war, not only on military personnel, but on their families, communities and service providers. She then designed the first global training programs and workbook on secondary traumatic stress, implemented initially during the Balkan wars and now used internationally.
She is a founding member of the Global Commons Initiative, World Wisdom Council, Creating the New Civilization Initiative, 2020 Climate Leadership Campaign, WorldShift 2012 (Ervin Laszlo), Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment, a Board member of Integral Review, a member of the Research Advisory Board of Ethical Markets and Living Earth TV, and a speaker at Mikhail Gorbachev’s World Political Forum.
