Deep Democracy Institute



New since December 2011: Deep Democracy Exchange 

Deep Democracy Exchange is the daughter of the Deep Democracy Institute. This is a platform for information exchange within the worldwide community of people who are interested in finding new and better ways to collaborate. We hope that by sharing books, articles and other resources that are related to our vision we can attract authors and readers in the fields of science, spirituality, ecology, economics, psychology, and politics who are interested in linking their fields of expertise to the areas of leadership, personal development and well-being, community facilitation, coaching, change management, and organizational dynamics. We hope you will enjoy browsing through some of our newest favorites and older classics. or
