  (This page has a CYBER TALK-BACK instant feedback box at the bottom.) 





E ARE INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY CONSCIOUS of the great power to be attained in synergism, where the magnitude of a unified whole is greater than the sum of the separate parts contributing to it, a principle that is alive in Nature and the Cosmos; 

We are individually and collectively conscious that a fast-growing number of people all over the world are discovering and consciously applying the empowering principle of synergism in various fields of human endeavor, including philosophy and economics, social and natural sciences, governance and empowerment, education and profound enlightenment, gender and family relations, inner and environmental health, culture and aesthetics; 

We are individually and collectively conscious that there are compelling reasons and effective ways to hasten, broaden and stabilize the consistent application of the synergism principle for people's self-empowerment and national synergy-building, and that one such way is to establish, strengthen and continually develop a formal and solid organization of conscious and consistently-active synergy-builders and facilitate effective teamwork systems for their work. This is a distinct contribution to the overall pursuit of total human development and harmony throughout the world.

And we individually and collectively commit to live this conscious­ness, further grow in it, and spread it far and wide, to the best of our creative abilities; and on this basis, we hereby uphold the establishment of the solid organization of consistently-active synergizers, under the following definitions, delineations, principles and basic policies.




    Article I:   Name, Symbol and Office of the Organization

  Section 1. The full official name of this organization shall be SanibLakas ng Taongbayan Foundation, Inc. It shall also be publicly projected and known as SanibLakas Foundation.  It shall also hereinafter be referred to as the “Foundation.”   

Section 2.  It shall be the task of the Foundation to exercise best efforts to cause any other entity to refrain from using the word “SanibLakas” in the latter’s name, especially if such use tends to confuse, distort, dilute and/or denigrate the synergetic essence of this name.

 Section 3.  The official symbol of the organization shall combine a set of converging arrows, symbolizing directional unity, with the sunburst, representing the great power created by that unity, in tribute to the atomic fusion process of generating energy within all known suns of the universe.

Section 4.  The central office of this organization shall be in Metro­politan Manila, the national capital region of the Philippines.


  Article II. Objectives of the Organization

Section 1.  The objectives of this organization shall be the following:

1)      to work for the development and application of effective technologies of empowerment for Filipinos as individual human beings and as individual honorable and productive citizens;

2)      to work for the development and application of effective technologies of empowerment for Filipinos as groups and communities, based on the principles of human synergism; and

3)      to contribute to national synergy-building and ultimately to total human development and universal harmony, on the basis of the foregoing objectives.


  Article III.  Declaration of Principles for Human Synergism

Section 1.  In all its internal and external dynamics, the organization shall uphold the Principles of Human Synergism, where empowerment shall be generative and not merely distributive in character and consequence.

Section 2.  Specifically, these principles are the following:

1)   Human dignity and empowerment, as accorded to and enjoyed by individual humans, shall be exalted and enhanced as the basis of collective dignity and empowerment.  SanibLakas work shall endeavor to enable every member, every partner and every person touched by its work, to achieve one’s maximum potential with the greatest attainable sense of fulfillment, to develop individual and collective sense of self-confidence, and to build stronger bonds with fellow-humans and with the rest of Nature, for personal or group success.

2)   Personal growth and empowerment is a life-long process that requires fundamental changes manifesting in consistent living behavior. This can only be built gradually, with each step solidly constructed, starting from the self. The individual must be adequately and effectively helped to be self-confident, competent and clear about the process of empowerment. After the inner self has become ready, the process can move on to formal and informal relationships, groups, society as a whole, and humanity as a whole.

3)    The quality and magnitude of collective commitment, perform­ance and empowerment are all ultimately rooted in the quality and magnitude of individual commitment, perform­ance and empowerment, on the number of individuals contributing to the collective efforts, and on the quality and degree of their bonding.

4) A healthy and empowering organization is one where the principle of synergism is lived to the fullest, where this powerful principle is very much alive in the members’ strong individual and collective sense of determination, confidence and fulfillment (“synergies of heart and spirit”), very much alive in decision-making processes that are broad-based, integrative and unifying (“synergy of many minds”), very much alive in members’ concerted actions (“synergy of the muscles”), pursuing the organization’s vision, mission, and programs of action. Organizations that synergize and thus empower their members fully serve the basic human right to association.

5) In contrast to personalistic leadership, synergetic leadership mandates that formal and informal leaders exert influence among other members to uphold more firmly the organization’s principles, vision, mission, policies, programs of action and plans, and all non-divisive processes that can help to refine these.

6) Meetings are defined as systematic discussions of a definite set of topics to forge strong unities on the best possible analyses, solutions, plans and policies on the basis of earlier synergies of minds and towards firmer and clearer synergies of minds upon which stronger synergies of spirit and of bodies can be attained in an organization as such. Meetings should therefore be active, participatory, orderly and productive. The chairing of a meeting is a function that does not elevate the assigned functionary to any rank higher than that of other participants except only on matters of the orderly conduct of the same.  Members have the responsibility to come punctually to meetings prepared to discuss actively, to contribute substantially, and to respect the other members and their ideas.


  Article IV.  Approaches of the Foundation 

Section  1.  The general approach of SanibLakas ng Taongbayan Foundation in the lawful pursuit of its objectives shall be that of healthy partnership-building, applying generative empowerment and respecting all partners as co-equal teammates in specific endeavors, seeking optimum levels and terms of partnership, and being aboveboard in all dealings with them.  

Section 2.   Such synergetic partnership shall be forged and nurtured by the SanibLakas Foundation with the individuals and groups that are applying the principle and building growing synergies in their respective fields of concern and/or interest.

Section 3.  Partnerships shall be encouraged, forged, nurtured and supported in other ways, among all synergism-oriented individuals and organizations/institutions. The Foundation shall exert persuasive motivation and provide facilitation, educational and other forms of support for many of these synergism-oriented individuals and entities to officially form part of a broad Synergy Community, to be called "Pamayanang SanibLakas,” which shall have its own organic leadership elected by its member-entities and by clusters of its individual members, and which shall officially subscribe as an organization to the herein Principles of Human Synergism.

Section 4. SanibLakas Foundation shall form or help form other lawful organizations in line with its synergy-building priorities, develop these into healthy and self-reliant organizations (with all "Three Synergies" functioning) that can spin off, after which eventuality the Foundation shall continue, as a partner, to guide and help develop these organizations, connect them with other members of the Pamayanang SanibLakas, and give them other means of support.




    Article V:  Recruitment and Retention of Members

3) the individual’s acknowledgment of SanibLakas Foundation as a formal mechanism for persons to pursue common personal missions together in synergy, and

4) the individual’s application for membership and remaining as member therein is a pledge upon one’s honor to abide by its policies, plans and programs in pursuit of its role of synergizing the individual personal efforts.
