Business as usual is no longer possible. We need to dramatically shift how we think and live in order that we, the planet and all those people we share it with as well as our children’s children, flourish. This is the time of the Great Turning (Joanna Macy) and each of us can play our part in tipping life towards health and well-being for all.
We know that we are a tipping point for climate, for inequality, for mental health, for poverty. Many of us have also experienced personal tipping points in the last year: rethinking how we work, live and educate our young people.
‘The point at which an issue, idea, product, etc., crosses a certain threshhold and gains significant momentum, triggered by some minor factor or change.’ (Dictionary.com)
‘The crisis stage in a process, when a significant change takes place’ (Collins Dictionary)
- You might find yourself at a personal tipping point which you didn’t chose such as children leaving home, a death, a divorce.
- You might be at a tipping point where you know things need to be different, that you need to change your career, how your relationships function, your lifestyle, where you live but you can’t work out what to do about it.
- You might be at a wider tipping point where you want to change how you do business, how your community functions, how you shop and consume. You might know you want to create a more regenerative way of life but don’t know how.
‘To use something that you already have in order to achieve something new or better’ (Cambridge dictionary)
‘Power or ability to act or to influence people, events, decisions, etc.; sway’ (Dictionary.com)
Work with me to find the leverage in the tipping points you are experiencing to create a life where your energy, health, social connection and emotional and social well-being are not just sustained, but improve, regeneratively.
Work with me to find your thing or your things: the things that energise and excite you. You can listen to people who have found their thing on my podcast. Finding your thing or things can be the most radical thing you can do for your own well-being and for the well-being of the planet.
‘The life coach … is someone professionally trained to help you maximize your full potential and reach your desired results. They are like a supportive friend and a trusted adviser rolled into one. They’re someone who will push you to identify your goals, hold you accountable and provide encouragement throughout your journey to become a better version of yourself. Life coaches complete extensive training that teaches them how to ask the right questions, communicate effectively and get to the heart of your needs and desires in life. (Tony Robbins)
‘Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen.’ (Pete Carroll)
I am an author, educator and researcher who coaches individuals and organisations to find more regenerative ways of living and working in order to support the health of all peoples, the more than human world and future generations.
My work is based on wisdom from indigenous people, science, psychological and somatic approaches. My own direct relationship with people and the more-than-human world have taught me about the interconnectedness of all things, and our dependency on each other for well-being. There are more things to measure than income and status so let’s start creating the world we want our grandchildren to live in. It starts here and it starts now with each of us, daily.
