They are concerned with ecological sustainability and in the case of a core group have a commitment to personal and spiritual development.

Intersubjectivity – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In phenomenology, intersubjectivity performs many functions. It allows empathy, which in phenomenology involves experiencing another person as a subject rather than just as an object among objects. In so doing, one experiences oneself as seen by the Other, and the world in general as a shared world instead of one only available to oneself.
