LIVING SYSTEMS

Aligning the economy with ecology and the human spirit

From the 1970s the element of change was Earth. We saw the first pictures of Earth from Space. We read the Limits to Growth. And we read impactful books on permaculture, healthy soil, and economic reform. 

Now, we are learning more. Solid becomes liquid. Ecology is organic and inorganic. Exponential growth is a function of nature if you know what to let go, and decay. Our planet is full of mathematics, quantum biology, and old wisdom.

This is a time of merging old wisdom (Vedic, Mayan, Phoeniciers) with western science. Let's cut to the core and redesign the ugly, grey, dead human systems to become colorful living systems.

 

Minimizing, maximizing, and optimizing the system in simple ways. The first step? As counter-intuitive as it sounds... shifting from scarcity to abundance. And making space for new things to emerge.

STORYMAKING

Conscious storymaking is more important than just storytelling. It combines many elements of what we see in the world and will reach wide, and far. Giving huge opportunities for spreading impact and attracting value flows.

We won't tell your impactful stories for you. But we can include them in ours to reach our wide audience (book a call to discuss possibilities). Or we will guide you on impactful storymaking.

Don't know what and how? Book a call.

Methods

All methods and tools have been developed in real-life projects. It means they are working well to make complexity simple without reductionism. And get flowy.

We identify the acupuncture points of change in a system. We cut through the complexity. Get to the core and build new opportunities from there.

Communicating without manipulating.


The methods will be shared in books and stories. Explored in 1:1 sessions or a group.
