What we do and believe in

We support the creation of Conscious Tribes; self-organising and regenerative communities in the form of families, teams, companies, and ultimately nations.

We believe conscious people are capable of

  • (self-)reflection: thinking about your own feelings and behaviours and the reasons behind them,
  • (self-)compassion: treating yourself and others with kindness and appreciation,
  • ownership: understanding yourself as a co-creator of every situation and searching proactively for solutions, to take action, and
  • deep dialogue: using dialogue to tap into collective wisdom and create sustainable solutions.

We believe the world needs more conscious individuals and collectives that can navigate a complex world while acting in a peaceful and regenerative manner.

We believe that communities, such as organisations, are the most powerful levers to increasing global consciousness and unleash humanities collective potential – which is why we are passionate about supporting people in organisations to become more conscious.
