Viridis, Latin for “green, to sprout” or the notion of “green life,” promises to be one of the most important and visionary movements in this day of profound change. If you are a conscious, awake and participatory citizen today, you must be engaged in the preservation of our planet and its beautiful natural world. Viridis Graduate Institute stands out as an educational organization that appreciates both the ecological and the psychological dimensions involved in this effort. – Thomas Moore, Author, Care of the Soul
