Humanity's Team is proud to have the honor of presenting its 2010 Spiritual Leadership Award to internationally renowned mystical scholar and Sacred Activist architect Andrew Harvey .

The award presentation — was held May 19 at the New York Open Center in New York City, the largest urban holistic learning center in the United States — recognized Andrew’s extraordinary demonstrations of inspired action and visionary leadership through his life lived.

The award, which our movement gave to Nobel Peace laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu in Pretoria, South Africa, in 2009, has become the standard among global awards honoring individuals for distinguished inspired action and eminent visionary leadership.

Andrew has clearly exhibited such action and leadership through his life, which he is guided to consciously and decidedly use in service of the greater good.
Born in south India and living there until age 9, Andrew credits this early period with shaping his awareness of the Oneness of humanity, the inner unity of all religions and a unified, interconnected world infused with the sacred.

Later educated in England, including at the University of Oxford, and now living near Chicago, he is a powerful messenger of New Spirituality values and a passionate articulator of the vital importance of Sacred Activism in helping humanity through its current crisis, which Andrew sees as a crisis of birth that is producing a new human sense of Self that expresses the ancient truth and sacred belief of Oneness with God and life.

Andrew’s many gifts to humanity reflect the heart in action. They range from his distinguished mystical scholarship, consummate translations and interpretations of the Sufi mystic Rumi and extraordinary spiritual teachings and writings to his transformative guidance and direction of the structure and growth of Sacred Activism in the United States and around the world.

We in Humanity’s Team also observe that a hallmark of his leadership, especially through Sacred Activism, is that it is intended to create more leaders, not followers. To us, that is the foremost sign of a spiritual leader.
