What is the Three Principles Global Community?

The Three Principles Global Community (3PGC) is a non-profit organization that is committed to bringing an understanding of The Three Principles* to people throughout the world.  Our mission is to increase the number of people who are teaching, sharing and learning The Principles, and to enhance and facilitate professional collaboration in this field.

The Principles have helped people the world over to discover their own well-being and to move closer to achieving their full potential.  The Principles have had a profound impact on every aspect of life, including: education, business and leadership, addiction and PTSD recovery, athletic performance, community work, and marriage and family counseling.

Through education, coaching, research and collaboration, we intend to serve as a catalyst and a unifying body dedicated to increasing the impact of The Principles throughout the world.

*The late Sydney Banks introduced The Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought to the world as an understanding of the human experience nearly forty years ago. The potential for the understanding that he shared and his vision of its benefit to the world are the inspiration for 3PGC.

About 3PGC

The Three Principles Global Community was established in 2009 in response to a wave of enthusiasm and appeals of people who have been profoundly affected by learning and sharing The Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness, and Thought.  Through their understanding of how The Principles create their experience of life, these people have experienced amazing changes in their personal and professional lives.  They have overcome addiction and illness.  They have healed personal relationships. They have transformed their businesses and achieved unprecedented business results.  Insight into these principles has helped parents strengthen their families, aided leaders in making their communities safer, and enabled athletes to achieve peak performance beyond what they had ever achieved before.  Over the last 40 years, thousands of people have improved their lives immeasurably just by learning these principles.  So people often ask, where did The Three Principles come from?

“Where did The Three Principles come from?”

In 1972 an average working man named Sydney Banks had a remarkable spiritual experience that revealed to him The Three Principles that are the foundation of all human experience; Mind, Consciousness, and Thought.

William James, who is regarded as the father of modern psychology, once wrote that the field of psychology had no true principles. He said if such principles were ever realized on a large scale, it would make the importance of every human advancement since fire pale in comparison. These causal laws, these principles, are precisely what Syd Banks came to know.

People from all walks of life were drawn to learn from Syd. Soon after his insight, a grassroots movement developed and people heard about these principles by word of mouth. Those who were impacted at an insightful level experienced profound changes that transformed their lives.  These changes were unique and started attracting mental health, prevention, and business professionals. To this day, the impact and inspiration of such uncommon results and dramatic change are the driving force in spreading what Syd understood.

Through the years, innumerable foundations, institutions, and businesses have been created to serve as a means of passing on the understanding of The Three Principles. Private, county, city and state programs have been established in mental health treatment, corrections, substance abuse, trauma, PTSD, education, prevention, sports and leadership. There have been unparalleled programs for business leaders, couples, parents, families, the homeless, low-income housing residents, veterans, and the general public.

Like William James predicted, the discovery of principles of human experience would create a revolutionary order of human change. Though Sydney Banks passed away in 2009, the combination of the intelligence and power of The Three Principles and the results of change that people experience created a natural momentum that has carried and will continue to carry this understanding forward.

As most of you know, Sydney Banks had his enlightened experience on Salt Spring Island. Even before he formulated the Three Principles as we know them today, people from all over the world came to the island to listen to Syd’s message.
Even though Syd used to be the first one to say it was about the message, not the man, the Three Principles Foundation and the Three Principles Global Community thought it would be a wonderful gesture to have something on Salt Spring Island to remember Syd and especially his message.
The idea arose to do this in the form of a commemorative bench, right in the middle of the Salt Spring Island park Syd loved, in the hope of triggering curiosity about the Three Principles.
If you ever visit Salt Spring Island, this bench can be found in Centennial Park.
