The Graceline Institute was founded by Mickaela Grace as an evolutionary atrium in the center of the community where all walks of life engage in direct and visceral experience to strengthen the unified field and elevate the heartbeat of all humankind.

Throughout history, great strides were made when at least one healer, humanitarian, or leader—like Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Malala or Nelson Mandela—took personal responsibility for themselves and the problem at hand, transformed the duality of right versus wrong, blaming, shaming, gaming, or complaining, and transcended their own egoic or emotional manacles to drive the public discourse to a higher domain. They did this not for personal gain, but rather in humble and humane service to All. And this Institute is devoted to the idea that a great humanitarian and a great r/evolutionary sits dormant in each of us.

Every human is a healer.

Every human is a leader.

Our political and environmental climates are changing rapidly. And at the rate the earth is warming and the rate we dualistically create divides both foreign and domestic, we can no longer wait for an outside authority to come parent the problem—nor can we entrust that our society will simply self correct if we ignore or avoid all critical tipping points. As a species, we can no longer stand idly by simply worrying, blaming, and complaining. We cannot point to fake news, injustices, electoral colleges nor hijacked elections for being the root of all dystopia and dismay. Nor should we leave it to world leaders, activists, or artists to better elevate us (though they’ve historically paved the way beautifully).

We must grow our own emotional intelligence if we expect the zeitgeist to suddenly offer an elevated level of discourse. We must grow up our views, our vote, and our participatory field. We must become the ones we have been waiting for.

 And it begins with abolishing the slavery of story.

 It begins with liberating oneself from catabolic conflict or entangling emotion.

 It begins when we decide to begin

There is no doubt that we live in a scary political climate. But when we fight against each other dualistically, this is how the “powers that be” continue to exercise their tyranny—because divisiveness operates as the greatest distraction from unleashing the evolutionary potential of our true emancipation and subsequent emotional intelligence (EQ).
