awakening into connection
Thoughts following the US action in Iraq
We’re all on the journey towards connection and coherence, exploring at whatever rate seems right to us – and then we wake up and find that the world has descended into chaos.
At times like this, it’s easy to fall into tribal narratives – whatever our tribe may be, we know our side is right and the other side is wrong. Which is largely the old-paradigm thinking that got us to this in the first place. Instead, those of us who believe in a different future, need to find ways to be grounded and balanced – we need to be the balance for the world. Every bit of research shows that the more we can change our own energy, the more we can become heart coherent, the more we can shift out of crisis-ridden Beta brain patterns into alpha or even theta, the more the people around us come into balance. The ripple effects spreads out.

How can we shift business to a regenerative model that will be fit for the world we need to create? Jo Chidley, recently returned from Davos, has devoted her business life to breaking the moulds of the way things are done – and has inspiring ideas of the ways we can shift our habits to change the world.
A free meditation from the Accidental Gods ‘connecting with water’ series. Put on your ‘seven league boots’ and head in the direction of the setting sun into the time before people were here.
Stand on the shores of a Loch and discover something new in the depths of yourself.
How can we feed ourselves while re-establishing our connections to the web of life? In a world where global food systems are extractive and destructive, how can we regenerate our land?
How can we create more connection with the people who matter – locally, nationally and internationally? Ruth Catlow of Furtherfield has designed 3-person chess where the pawns can declare world peace, set up the Treaty of Finsbury Park between humans and other species – and experimented with quadratic voting on the blockchain to create real local democracy.
How can we shift our mindsets away from service to a destructive and extractive culture and offer ourselves fully in service to life.
Exploring the wrinkles we need to iron out and the potential banana skins we need to step round if we are to set a clear and effective intent.
intention intensive resourcesAction plan for group & solo work...Groups exist to help you hone and hold intent - so you can (collectively) do whatever works for you In Manda's idealised image, you connect in your groups at least once per week. And then: - you...
Why don’t we harness our astonishing capacity to create real impacts on the future? There are a host of reasons and each of us has different strategies for getting in our own way…
The world is changing: we all know this, but knowing what we can do, how theories of change actually apply… that’s harder. Eva Schonveld and Justin Kenrick are deeply embedded in applying the theory of change in ways that work and from which we can all learn.
Three years – and 160 episodes – into the podcast, Manda takes stock of where we’ve been, why we set up and, crucially, where we’re going, both in the ‘cast and in the membership programme.
The Oxford Real Farming Conference (ORFC) is one of the highlights of the regenerative farming year. Running from 4th – 6th January, this year sees a return to the in-person conference as well as a continuous rolling on-line programme. As part of the lead in, Accidental Gods was honoured to speak with Satish Kumar, one of the god-fathers of the regenerative, redistributive movement.
As our world and our lives transform, we need some stable anchors. So, as we do each year, we got together with two other star podcast hosts: Nathalie Nahai of The Hive and Della Duncan of Upstream, to reflect on the year just gone and look forward to the year ahead.
