CATALYST

A Co-creative PROGRAM TO IDENTIFY AND CATALYZE KEY FINANCIAL INNOVATIONS in service of an economy that ENABLES the thriving of all life

Initial session: July - Sep ‘19


What to expect

This program invites resource-holders, multi-disciplinary thought leaders, and front-line entrepreneurs to come together in a co-creative, inquiry-based journey. With the support of master guides, you will inquire into where we are, how we got here and what the highest leverage ‘trim tabs’ are for building next economy financial infrastructure. Throughout, the program will be grounded in whole person developmental practices to advance and integrate expanded fields of consciousness into the work.

Your voice is important

The challenges we face are ecosystemic. Our solutions must invite the wisdom and co-creative capacity of the full ecosystem. We have curated a range of perspectives and disciplines for this program such that each of our hand-selected participants holds a unique and essential key. This is an invitation-only program.
