Welcome to Waking Up Together!
This is a place for people like you—people who are waking up to the deeper meaning of this pivotal time in human history, and who want to take positive action for the benefit of future generations.

This website is based on the work of Elizabeth Rabia Roberts, spiritual teacher and international citizen activist.

For the past 50 years Rabia has been deeply engaged in the three great movements of our time: social justice, peace, and environmental action. Rabia has lived and worked in places as diverse as Iraq, Syria, Burma, Thailand, Jordan, Iran, Israel, Palestine, Brazil and Afghanistan. Her unique experience has yielded a rich harvest of insights relevant to the challenges facing us.

Here you will find teachings, trainings, videos, books, people and projects connected to her ongoing work.

Rabia and her colleagues today are taking a leadership role in bringing the New Story to contemporary leaders in education, community development, and spiritual traditions. Through Rabia’s mentoring and training programs, you can learn from and participate in this critical work of social transformation.

“These 50 years have given me a unique perspective — grounded both in feminine insight and in global experience with social change. I join my voice with the great cadre of elder women in our time who speak out for resilience, compassion, and courage. When my grandson grows up and wants to know what I was doing as our environment and culture deteriorated around us, I want to be able to say, ‘Everything I could.’ This commitment to tomorrow’s children keeps me alive and filled with passion to continue my life’s work.”
