Welcome to the Deeptime Network

Where a Deeptime Perspective Empowers Evolution

We’re a global network of:


We’re blown away . . .

with the discovery that the universe is a single interconnected entity that has been transforming for 14 billion years, and believe that this perspective changes everything.

We believe . . .

that understanding our deep past is foundational for understanding where we come from, who we are, how the universe works and how to make the best choices for ourselves and the future of Earth.

We use many names . . .

for a Deeptime Perspective — Big Picture, New Story, Montessori Cosmic Vision and Education, Big History, Journey of the Universe, Universe Story, and Gaia Systems Theory, to name a few.

We’re creating a deep future . . .

by addressing today’s problems—global warming, intolerance, income inequality, food security, environmental degradation, alienation, social break down, meaninglessness, and more — with a Deeptime Perspective.

We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
— Albert Einstein

“Sharing stories of the universe gives children a crucially important gift — a context for their presence and helps them connect to their purpose and sense of belonging. Deep Time learning and surging curiosity are born through exploring interrelationship and interdependence, just what the DTJN is all about!”

Scientist, Religious Naturalist

Ursula Goodenough
Professor of Biology
Washington University, St. Louis, MO (US)

“Scientific inquiry has provisioned us with a mind-boggling new core narrative — the epic of evolution, the epic of creation, the universe story, big history, everybody’s story — where humans and human cultures are understood to be emergent from and, hence, a part of nature.”

Educator, Jesuit Priest

Robert Athickal, SJ
Founder, Tarumitra
Patna, Bihar, India

“At Tarumitra, we are concerned about the future of our planet and believe that understanding a deep time perspective is central for creating a way forward. Tarumitra is a students’ initiative with a membership of over quarter million members and network of over 2500 schools and colleges.”

What Difference Does It Make?

After watching the Cosmic Plan lectures with Dr. Michael Dorer, my curriculum director turned to me with starry eyes and said this is what we have needed for so long.  We are going to be talking about these lessons all year long.

Steven Whewell

Head of School, Hill Country Montessori School

From a far flung ‘corner’ of South Australia, I have a great sense of the whole and wholeness of our world through my interactions with the DTJN community.  I engaged in Professional Development meetings via Zoom, little knowing how much they would challenge and inspire me, how much I would value the enormous bank of resources available through this website.
Di Shearer, PhD, D Min, MEd, MA (Theology)

Spiritual Director; Retired Educator, Strathalbyn, South Australia

DTJN is a tremendous community for connecting with local communities around the world inspired by Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme, Maria Montessori, and others orienting to a Cosmic Story with an understanding that everything is connected.

When we share stories of the universe with children, we give them a context for their presence and help them connect with their purpose and sense of belonging. Deep Time learning and surging curiosity are born through exploring interrelationship and interdependence, just what the DTJN is all about!
