The magic lies in collective adapt-ability
Few people now would deny that we need to adapt (or die). It's not news.
Our context is changing. Everyone is talking about the need to change, to meet the challenges of perpetual change.

The key to thriving in a fast-changing, uncertain and ambiguous world is adaptability.

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
Unleashing the power in groups
The people we work with believe there is another way. A better way.
A way that develops collective power and creates an antidote to the heaviness of all the complex challenges of the world.
We didn’t invent this stuff.
We aren't the only ones who know it.
So why is it not happening everywhere?
We all (at some level) believe that humans are meant to connect; to live and work together in groups and communities. You only have to look at all the names we have to describe how people gather in groups.
The sad reality is that it's still rare for people to feel a deep belonging, created through potent ways of working together in the groups they're part of.
We mostly live in a highly individualistic society, where we're conditioned to think we can (and even should) survive and thrive alone.
We disagree that it needs to be this way. We definitely disagree that it should be this way.

"Difference is not the problem. It's the solution."
"To feel a sense of belonging is important because it will lead us from conversations about safety and comfort to other conversations, such as our relatedness and willingness to provide hospitality and generosity. [....] These are two elements that we want to nurture as we work to create, strengthen, and restore our communities."
"Through learning we re-create ourselves. Through learning we become able to do something we never were able to do. Through learning we reperceive the world and our relationship to it. Through learning we extend our capacity to create, to be part of the generative process of life"
