Welcome to Enrichment.com! We are a news, informational and inspirational portal that speaks to the nobility of the human spirit, to the real possibility that through the power of intention, choice and faith, humankind can build a more creative, compassionate world filled with unlimited hope, promise and fulfillment for every man, woman and child on our planet.
We believe in a Higher Power out of which all life has emerged. We believe that Life is sacred and intelligent, and that we must treat It with the reverence, respect, kindness, understanding, unique expression, tolerance and support It deserves. We come from an inclusionary and unitive perspective, taking no ideological or religious positions, though drawing on the great accumulation of wisdom from all the world’s great religions, cultures, humanitarian documents, and the enlightened views and thinking of the great philosophers, healers, visionaries, humanitarians, artists, writers, scientists, spiritual teachers and all lovers of life everywhere.
We are an advocacy site. We stand for the forward movement of humanity towards freedom; towards the advancement, full flowering and creative, spiritual development of each person’s unique human potential, higher purpose and improved quality-of-life; towards the acceptance and honoring of basic human rights for all; towards an end to poverty; and towards reverence for the non-human life forms on our planet.
We believe that through deep and honest dialogue and communication between cultures, races, genders, religions and ideas, that mutual understanding and the discovery of our common humanity and aspirations can and will be found. Through an honoring of the richness of our diversity, and our diverse views and values, a pathway to our fundamental unity can also be revealed. Through an appreciation of our common struggles, as viewed by one towards another, a heartfelt empathy and appreciation of the vulnerability and preciousness of each of us may be achieved. In all of this, the vision of Enrichment sees the potentiality of a convergence of all peoples towards a higher plane of unity, love, creative possibility and fulfillment; and the realization of a next step for humanity on Earth.
We're under no illusions. We understand that there lurks within each of us the possibility to become overwhelmed by fear, to descend into intolerance, cruelty, excessive greed, violence and limiting, destructive beliefs. We believe, however, that sometimes through the process of human struggle, compassion can emerge when people are encouraged to see themselves in others, and others in themselves. We also believe that through the power inherent in each of us to choose and to focus our consciousness on the light rather than the darkness, that the seeds of kindness, love, hope, understanding, freedom with responsibility, and encouragement can be planted and sewn.
We choose to believe that genuine creative and spiritual fulfillment is each person’s birthright, and that constructive self-empowerment can take the place of hopelessness, despair, suppression and repression. We choose to believe that a poverty of consciousness and materiality can be supplanted with a consciousness of life's sweetness, of its preciousness, abundance, creative potential and unlimited possibility. We choose to believe that a new light of promise and hope can be enkindled, illuminating the way for a truly brighter and better future for everyone.
We’ve com e to a fragile and vulnerable point in our evolution. Technology can be a tool for great and unparalleled achievement, communication, comfort and convenience, but without the guiding hand of wisdom and compassion, it can be the instrument for terrible destruction and suffering.

Mike Schwager is Founder, President and Editor-in-Chief of Enrichment.com, an idea envisioned on a walk down a Soho street in Manhattan during the winter of 1990. Within this vision was the sense that as the world converges technologically, so is the time also ripe for a convergence and new integration between people, races, genders, religions and cultures...coming together and finding common ground through dialogue and heart-felt expression. The time is also fertile for increased opportunities for human fulfillment, and the growth of human potentiality - through service to the Earth and humanity, vocational/entrepreneurial growth, and creative/ spiritual insight, growth and self-development. Schwager authored many business plans that described the Enrichment theme within various media formats. Enrichment.com is the culmination of this process.
