Every Voice of the city has a role to play in the city as we all experience the pandemic. Each Voice is experiencing a different challenge, but each Voice can respond in positive, life-giving ways.

As I have dialled into the multitude of digital nomad media, I have gradually discovered those who have clustered together edgy inquiries amidst the interstitial zones of the flow of change. I now notice many partial truths are lighting up the city. This morning I wondered if there is a meta-pattern to the intelligences? [...]

I stepped out on my balcony this morning with a quizzical sense of change-in-process. In this second half of the year of pandemic - our 7th month of a shared world experience - people are talking about returning to the “old normal”. Or wondering what will be the “new normal”. My sense is [...]

In our VUCA world, confused and confounded by the rapid global spread of covid19, we may be viewing the unexpected emergence of a superordinate goal that is quickly aligning a plurality of nations, cities, citizens and experts to work together for survival.

VUCA World – Contact or Contract?

Contract can mean “to confirm an agreement” or “to reduce/diminish/withdraw in size”. In the English language it is ambiguous, paradoxical and ironic that the same word can mean both a positive affirming energy and a negative declining energy. In the VUCA world of a pandemic like covid19 both meanings of the word “contract” are [...]

Elizabeth Kübler-Ross drew the curve of Death and Dying in a way many of us recognize all change happens. Her curve maps the Change Process of Spiral Dynamics. It is the same cycle that Otto Scharmer uses for the U Theory. It is the same pattern I designed for Integral City Book 2 using [...]

Gaia as a living being has organs for her body, brain, mind and heart. Great rivers, lakes and oceans are her veins and arteries. Rocks and mountains her skeleton. Prairies and soil are her skin. Fungi, mycelium, microbes and insects are her metabolic tracts. Forests, plants and gardens her lungs. Animals are her animators, [...]
