Cultural Transformation

In order to experience justice, freedom and ecological sanity manifesting in our world WE have to come together as a human family to co-create a culture that actually supports these values.

Renouncing hopelessness and reclaiming our power…both personally and collectively…is the transformation that is being called for.

This is a process of untangling the dysfunctional patterns, beliefs and behaviors that define our current version of culture and taking responsibility for what we choose and create with our words and actions…in our relationships and purchases…with our time and inspiration.

This cultural transformation requires us to connect…to collaborate…to share and learn from each other…to get creative and explore our capacity for change and come together in a web of mutual support for the wellbeing of ALL.

My understand and perspective on cultural transformation is  also heavily influenced by the teachings of Martin Prechtel through his school of remembering deliciously important forgotten things, Bolad’s Kitchen
