Luigi Morelli has come to writing from the experience of social commitment through his work, and from a lively interest in the history, myths and legends of the American continent. For nine years he has operated a business co-op promoting ecological practices in landscape contracting, which continues in existence at present in Santa Cruz, CA. He has fourteen years of experience in working with developmentally disabled adults â*“ half of it in alternative, holistic settings â*“ and was a founding member of the Wavecrest community for the disabled (part of the international federation of L'Arche communities), in Orange County, CA, in 2004.
Luigi articulates a clear, cultural-spiritual vision of social change that encompasses political activism, and gives it a new meaning. For this reason he has trained extensively in Nonviolent Communication and NVC mediation, in which he offers trainings. He has also researched and studied other approaches to experiential spirituality, particularly Destiny Learning of Coen van Houten.
His writings incorporate the themes of spirituality and social change, part of which is inspired from the history, myths and legends of the American continent. Myths and legends offer us an understanding of the soul of social change, of its spiritual foundations. In addition, they complement a scientific approach to history. The images of myths allow us to better understand the deeper undercurrents of history and the spiritual influences at play in past and present.
