welcome

We’re exploring systems design and personal development, spiritual activism and neuroscience and the many, many deeply thoughtful, deeply soulful practices being explored around the world which throw light on our journey towards the evolution of consciousness.

Active Hope

Active Hope

As our world hurtles towards tipping points, how can we be part of the solution? How can we find resilience, in ourselves, our lives and our communities? Above all, how can we bring Active Hope to the world? Dr Chris Johnstone and Madeleine Young have set up an online training course based in Joanna Macy’s work that reconnects and we talk about it in this week’s podcast.

The Mermaids had to happen – reflection

In a world that is literally burning, with politicians whose positions of power are predicated on their not listening, what are the most creative, thoughtful, caring people on the planet doing to bring about change? Sophie Miller of Ocean and Extinction Rebellions was an integral part of the stunningly impressive actions at the G7 summit earlier this summer. In this second of two parts, she reflects on her experience – and looks ahead to future actions.

Activism and mermaids at G7

‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.’ As our world burns ever faster and our politicians cling ever more desperately to the old ways of being and behaving, Sophie Miller of Ocean Rebellion commits her creativity, artistry and courage to bringing truth to power.

How to Save Our Planet

How to Save Our Planet

How did we get here? How bad are things really? Is there still hope? (Yes!) and… crucially – what can we do, individually, collectively, in our businesses, in our governments, around the world, to turn the bus from the edge of the cliff? Professor Mark Maslin is a climate scientist with a mission to explain in clear terms all we need to know. And he does it with panache, enthusiasm and optimism.

Behave More! Rebuilding Our World Differently

Behave More! Rebuilding Our World Differently

Imagine a world where we listen to the voices of the young as much as the old, the women as much as the men, all races, all abilities, all income streams – all species… where we honour difference, where compassion and empathy are our keynotes, not competition and separation. If this is the world we want, how do we get there?

The Hijacking of our Common Law

The Hijacking of our Common Law

The Wild Church

When do you feel most alive? When are you most open and connected with a deeper sense of being? When do you fall in love with life and want to turn towards the world with hope and care?

Together

Together

Imagine a world where dignity is valued over nationalistic pride; where we know that ‘enough’ is the opposite of ‘more’; where we understand the bonds that draw us together. Author Ece Temelkuran launches her new book ‘Together’ – and shares with us its message of human resilience
