Seeding potential at the intersection of inner and outer change

“The greatest revolution of our times is the way we see the world … that we belong to a living, self-organising cosmos.“
~ Joanna Macy 


The School of Being

We are living in complex, changing and uncertain times that require creativity, resilience, vision, collaboration, and well-being to meet the future more effectively and regeneratively.

The School of Being’s work sits at the intersection of inner and outer change, by helping people to co-create new potential in life, work and in the world. We empower people to see, sense, and think differently, so that we can be and act differently, individually and collectively, and co-create thriving for all of life.

We offer experiential programs to grow capacity for (1) BEING : Inner Development, (2) SENSING : Systemic Sensemaking and (3) ACTING : Manifesting Potential. Evolving our capacity in these 3 areas can empower us to co-create flourishing in our lives and in our world. 

What we do

Inner Development

Our inner awareness informs how we see, sense and relate to others in our work, our communities, and the world. We help people to make the inner changes required for greater resilience, creativity, and ability to respond to work and life with greater presence, self-awareness, connection and wisdom.


Systemic Sensemaking

Creating change requires systemic awareness and sense-making capability. Drawing upon diverse modalities, we help grow this capacity within individuals, teams and groups to better understand and make sense of complexity, navigate uncertainty, see new potential, and collaborate to mobilise change for better futures.


Manifesting Potential

How we see, feel, perceive and sense informs how we think, act and create in the world. We work with teams and organisations to catalyse creativity, and collaboration, develop capacity for diverse forms of knowing, and activate individual and collective will, empowering people to co-create more flourishing futures.
