Our learning and unlearning methodology support new thinking and practices that deepen commitment to access wisdom.

Generative Communications

Generativity means giving birth to something, and that something emerges from this conversation.

  • You feel connected, more understood, seen, heard, and experienced. You’ve been recreated beyond any label or concept – acknowledged as a legitimate being. That is generative communication.

  • Cultivating a generative mindset transforms our relationship to language from being describers of some objective-knowable world to being designers and authors of reality.

  • This page presents our model, principles, and process to support coaching and consulting programs. 

Deep Listening

Listening is an underdeveloped asset in our leadership, culture, and organizational life.

  • Deep Listening cultivates openness to receive concerns and perceive experiences to connect deeply with others

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Awaken • Integrate • Embody

In Sanskrit, Bhāvanā describes a process of cultivation: the development of mental qualities such as imagination and awareness directed toward intentional change.

AWAKEN. An inquiry into the nature of being beyond our conceptual maps. We experience our whole being as body, mind, and language.

INTEGRATE. Invite an opening that expands and includes all parts of ourselves. We envision possibilities beyond our past frames of reference.

EMBODY. Engage life with contemplative practice beyond our reflexive selves. We embody and sustain new levels of awareness and action.

“Our philosophy is grounded in only half a language … the power of discourse is deployed but the strength of listening is ignored. We have a culture that knows how to speak but not how to listen; so we mistake warring monologues for genuine dialogue.”

—Gemma Corradi Fiumara, The Other Side of Language
