Come with me as we reimagine stories and, together, weave them into organisational roots.
Stories of organisations as self-organising webs of ecological relationships. Stories of organisations as stewards of planetary, ecosystem, and social system health. Stories of organisations as commons within wider commons. Stories of organisational seasonality: of birth, creativity, rest, reflection, grief, celebration, evolution, and death. Stories of radical organisational responsibility and responsiveness, transparency and mutualism, stewardship and reconciliation. Stories of facilitation as midwife, death doula, and alchemist.
My perspectives have been moulded by over twenty-five years of scraggy and inconvenient health issues that bring my gaze to my inner experiences with laser focus. At the same time, these health issues have widened my gaze far beyond my self, into animism, interbeing, ancestry, self-organising systems, place, constellations of relationships, and the magnificent, mysterious resonance of the natural world. Over time, both gazes has brought me a relationship with life that is intimate, queer, personal, and deeply important.
My perspectives have also been moulded by the middle space I now situate as a woman that’s no longer a young adult but not quite an elder, my white skin and middle-class upbringing in England, my lost connection to my Croation ancestry, and chocolate; less chocolate than I'd like and more chocolate than I probably deserve.
One of my pleasures is the multitude of relationships that I am weaved into: from the most intimate relationships like my marriage to the constellations of care and co-creation that ripple out from dearest friends and collaborators to those that I meet only through their work, right through to my ancestral constellations, past and future.
I look forward to exploring this new constellation: you and I, in relationship. In whatever way it unfurls.
