Drawing: Marko Pogačnik.

Since entering the third millennium we witness the rapid deterioration of the ecosystems of the Earth as well as growing problems within the modern civilization. I am convinced that it is not possible to repair the three dimensional planet Earth since it is basically a creation of the human mind. The purpose of the project “Creating Gaia Culture” is to develop a direct communication with the consciousness of the Earth – its Greek name is Gaia – and starting from small groups of dedicated people to develop a new civilization in cooperation with Gaia and her co-creators of the multidimensional Earthly universe. The project was published in the book “Creating Gaia Culture” (Clairview, 2021).

Marko Pogačnik, born in Kranj in 1944, lives in Šempas in Vipava. In the years between 1965-71, he worked within the OHO movement and group, and from 1971-79 in the agricultural-artistic commune in Šempas. He developed lithopuncture – the art of acupuncture of landscapes and cities. He is the author of the national coat of arms of Slovenia. Between 2016 and 2022 he serves in the world as UNESCO Artist for Peace
