Exploring problem-solving through nature is one way to understand our own nature.

"Awareness is the greatest agent for change."  Eckhart Tolle

In an increasingly disconnected world, it’s important to find creative ways to reconnect to ourselves and one another, especially when facing or leading change. When we step back and tune in, we can see that chaos is a calling to lead differently, to listen differently, to facilitate change differently. It's an invitation for resilience; radical acceptance then radical creativity. 


"We have confused control with order."  Margaret Wheatley

"I believe we’re all in this together and when we regard each other as human beings not human-doings we can move beyond criticism and stuck, and get to the best part, which is creating and solving problems together. Excellence isn’t just acquired, it’s lived."
