I have long felt deep in my heart the why of what I do…but I have been too quiet on what I actually do in the big picture. For example, why this blog on thrivability?
- I study network theory and mapping so we can see the territory we are working with and map it. I also attempt the visualization of information in other ways so we can better see ourselves.
- I brain-crunch on collective intelligence and wisdom so we can collaboratively learn and act from wisdom as a whole.
- I delve deep into currencies and flows so I can help information, energy, activity flow and connect visibly. Make the invisible–visible and intentional.
- I observe and initiate community development and facilitation.
- I champion innovators, leaders, and visionaries of the emerging culture and these related fields.
- I track social-entrepreneurship, democratized-philanthropy, and the nonprofit sector as it relates to social justice.
Why? I want to build these fields, so the whole farm (the many fields) supports our opportunity for thrivability.
I don’t want to see nonprofits repeating the same work in different locations without awareness of each other, available resources, or connection to possible champions and volunteers.
I want an organic, self-evolving, self-organizating ecology for wisdom and action so we can co-create a world we want in symbiosis with our environment. I want a whole new culture. And I don’t want it by tearing down the old one. Thank you Modernism, thank you post-modernism. Thank you to all that has come before and led to us being right here, now.
Let’s together use our strengths to focus on co-creating a world we can share and flourish in together.
So, I do everything in my power to create and enable the systems, architectures, processes, flows that enable that.
