With the Earth seen to be at an environmental crisis point and humanity increasingly at risk, the Shen Foundation was established to encourage, coordinate and sustain the efforts of all people in responding to and finding solutions to the planetary crisis.

We believe there is an urgent need to reconnect with the principles of balance, harmony and health for the individual, our sustaining environment and the wider world. Such beliefs are rooted in the ancient Chinese tradition of Daoism that affirms the fundamental principle of a profound ecological interdependence between all things.

We seek to integrate this ancient wisdom and its teaching with the best and wisest use of modern science and technology in effectively meeting today’s personal, societal and environmental challenges.

In essence, The Shen Foundation is actively engaging in the widest and most fundamental sense with wellbeing – supporting the health of individuals, the health of communities, the health of our planetary environment and the underlying interconnections that exist between them.

“Surrender yourself humbly; then you can be trusted to care for all things. Love the world as your own self; then you can truly care for all things.”
-Lao Zi, excerpt from Ch. 13 Dao De Jing
