Rising Intent produces literary and artistic work of the highest quality, integrity and intent. Our mission is to embody and encourage the rise of consciousness and well-being in a continually evolving world. Creations produced by Rising Intent are open-minded and positively oriented; they resonate with the awakening knowledge of humanity’s potential for greatness. The perspectives offered represent a balance between science and spirituality, the synchrony of matter with essence, a deep respect for the natural world, and harmony between peoples of all cultures and creeds.


The Heart of the Matter:

The inspiration behind Rising Intent is a very special book that has been years in the making. This work, which delves into the nature of reality and the power of consciousness, has fuelled the evolution of our venture. Though this book was slated to be Rising Intent's initial offering, life and love began to play upon it, and our little company began to sprout, branch out, and bear fruit, even while the original seed remained hidden from view. Still, it is the heart around which all of our other pursuits revolve.

As Lao Tzu said: "True mastery can be gained by letting things go their own way." Keeping this in mind, we invite you to enjoy the delectable sprouts that have arisen quite naturally from our original intent. 


Special Announcements:

We are pleased to announce our brand new offshoot: "Birthing Art". As a Division of Rising Intent and through its own dedicated Website, Birthing Art offers a platform for artists to share and promote their new work. The art that is birthed on these pages will resonate with our core values and connect independent artists with lovers of creativity in all of its formats. Click our Birthing Art Menu item for more information on this project, and visit www.birthingart.com to view and learn more.  

A new Children’s Division called: “Infinity Times Eternity” has also recently branched out from  Rising Intent. This name was inspired by a phrase in the first book that will be offered in the near future. The book is entitled: "The Most Love EVER!" and it is a part of a proposed four-part "Love" Series. Please click here to learn more about it. You may also wish to visit our dedicated Children's site: www.infinitytimeseternity.com


The Shared Quest

Rising Intent's "Shared Quest" initiative donates ten percent of net profits to causes that enlighten and uplift humanity. Organizations selected for this program work toward a better understanding of consciousness, and seek solutions to all forms of suffering brought on by the mind. Through their research and development, they serve not only individuals, but all beings, and the natural world in which they live.

No specific religious or political affiliations are connected to these ventures. As we move forward with this effort, we will provide a list and description of these organizations on our Shared Quest page.

Through its products and The Shared Quest program, Rising Intent joins the growing world effort to integrate body, mind and spirit, and to promote harmony between self and others, energy and information, thought and action. The goal in achieving coherence in these areas is to bring us ever closer to the joy and fulfillment that we all seek and to bring our relationship with nature back into balance.

By purchasing and enjoying products offered on Rising Intent and its affiliated sites, you are contributing to your own quest for self-discovery and for harmony between man and nature.
