An international coordinating body devoted to linking metaphysical and New Age groups.

  • It was originally formed as the International Cooperation Council, and it has been led for three decades by its coordinator Leland Stewart.
  • The council seeks to coordinate cultural and religious organizations that, in their own ways, "foster the emergence of a new universal person and a civilization based on unity in diversity among all peoples."
  • Formed to propagate ideals of unity during International Cooperation Year, it was voted into being in 1965 by the General Assembly of the United Nations.
  • The Unity-and-Diversity World Council continues its work of publicizing the aims and ideas of humanitarian groups that bring together the methods and discoveries of modern science with the insights of religion, philosophy, and the arts.
  • Much of this synthesis is concerned with developing areas of awareness in human consciousness and unorthodox healing techniques.
