We envision a vibrant, healthy world for future generations, supported by a thriving network of individuals and groups fully equipped to innovate, collaborate, navigate difficulty, share leadership, and embody their evolutionary purpose.
integrating generative values into internal systems & culture
At this moment, around the world, organisations, communities, and groups of all kinds are bringing their gifts together to support a collective shift away from the industrial growth society towards a more life-sustaining civilization. We believe that, in order for this shift to take root at the deepest level, these pioneering groups must integrate their life-sustaining values into their internal culture and systems: into the "how" of their day-to-day activities.
In alignment with this belief, the Culture Garden Team models what we teach. At every stage of the process, our strong, synergistic support draws from the wisdom of nature, the wisdom of the group, and the wisdom of the body, integrating multiple intelligences into the heart of every project. Thus, it is the "how" of Our Services, as much as the "what" that allows our Our Clients to awaken latent potential, to locate and embody their gifts, and to Rise Up in Brilliance in their full transformational potency and power.
We envision a vibrant, healthy world for future generations, supported by a thriving network of individuals and organisations fully equipped to innovate, collaborate, navigate difficulty, share leadership, and embody their evolutionary purpose.
We support leaders, change-agents and advocates of this shared vision to fulfill their true potential.
We provide expert facilitation for the complex process of re-visioning, re-evaluating, and re-designing group systems on multiple levels. We also provide training and ongoing mentoring in specific areas (such as governance or peacebuilding) to support our clients’ development. At every stage, we bring the synergy of our unique skill-set as facilitators, which integrates the wisdom of nature, the wisdom of the group, and the wisdom of the body into everything we do.
Connection is like an invisible root system, which links each individuals’ inner journey of self-actualization with the interactions and activities of the whole. Practicing connection ensures that a group’s outer activities and initiatives support its members’ inner wellbeing – and vice versa – which invokes the powerful synergy of mutual benefit. We’ve seen the ways that this synergy is an invaluable source of energy, inspiration, and guidance for any group.
Creativity is the process of giving shape, energy, and intention to the vast field of possibility that exists within and around us. By attending to how it nourishes, receives and directs its creative energies, a group ensures that what it creates is well-formed, rooted in its deepest intentions, and responsive to the ever-evolving needs of the world. It can also include its partners, community, and the other-than-human realm in its creative process, unleashing the joy and generativity of a co-creative flow.
Collaboration is about sharing intelligence, effort, and leadership. This doesn’t mean that every decision or action must be taken collectively; rather, it means we believe that every member of a group has valuable input which can be engaged in different ways in different contexts. We believe that groups are more alive and make better decisions when they use flexible, collaborative systems which draw from the intelligence of the whole.
