I’m glad you’re here.

We have
work to do.

What if we actually aimed for thriving?

Too often, we accept busyness and productivity as their own reward. Or we’re afraid to be bold, so we aim for something less than thriving.

As a result, we’re falling dangerously short of thriving in our communities, in our organizations and in our own lives.

So, what if we recognized the characteristics of thriving living systems in our organizations and communities?


And what if that were somehow simple and useful, opening up new insights and suggesting new ways forward?


What if our most powerful role is to act as stewards of life’s processes, actively cultivating the fertile conditions for life to thrive?


And what if this helped us achieve all of our other objectives more effectively?

This is the most important work of our times.
This is the practice of thrivability.


Here’s how I can help.

Whether you’re an organizational leader, a community planner or just someone looking for answers, here are some ways I can help.


Sharing deep expertise on what it takes for life to thrive in our organizations, our communities and our own experience


Hosting meaningful conversations to navigate complexity collectively, creatively and joyfully


Offering a comprehensive framework for designing and stewarding effective change


Mapping the opportunity in The Age of Thrivability: Vital Perspectives and Practices for a Better World


Delivering thought-provoking keynotes, workshops and webinars, with warmth and interactivity

“We need to see ourselves more fully as active stewards of life’s unfolding process and as part of a larger living world.”

The Age of Thrivability

La création d’une organisation, moment béni

"In every realm of our lives, we're faced with a choice: continue down the conventional path of alienation from life, despite that pathway’s inevitable devastation; or forge a new path of greater alignment with life, with all its promise and potential."

This is the voice of the mechanistic worldview. It sees no alternative to its destructive ways. “Despite what a lot of activists say, it is entirely legitimate to invest in oil & gas because the world demands it... We have no choice” but to continue to invest.

I wrote this 2 years ago - and looked back at it now to remind myself that there may, indeed, be a silver lining to these dark days. I confess the silver seems more dull and tarnished as I look at it today... but it's still there.


WHO IS THIS BOOK FOR? "The Age of Thrivability touches on history as well as future trends, on science as well as spirituality, and on the meaning of life as well as practical questions of how change happens within organizations.
