Inspiration 6: Sustainocratic tables

An sustainocratic table ready to determine regional priorities together

#Sustainocracy, our new #democracy, introduced a totally new way of thinking and handling. It is a real time democracy based on our core human values. We do that with the Sustainocratic table. No banks, no politics are involved, just our regional core human values and shared responsibility.

The table is managed by an independent #Sustainocrat. He or she invites all relevant parties to the table and makes sure that the human natural core values lead the result and project driven dialogue. I have been practicing this role for 10 years now. It was not easy to get everyone to the table but I managed to get it going after much trial and error….

The table symbolizes our  regional society, our #community. The table has four supportive legs, each representing a key participant of our society today:

#citizens – our behavior and culture
#government – common infrastructures and use of our public funds
#entrepreneurs – innovative solutions
#science and #eduction – our applied learning process

On top of the table are our core natural human values as shared #responsability. The sustainocrat at the table connects all four leg’s representatives based on #equality around the table. Each have equal part in the values driven process. Nobody is “the boss”, also not the Sustainocrat. They come together to safeguard the common core values through proactive, results driven innovative projects.

Current existing examples of such tables, with me as connecting Sustainocrat:

#AiREAS: air quality, health and mobility
#School of Talent and Wellness: participatory learning
#FRE2SH: regional food security
#COS3i: social inclusion and citizens participation in our core human values

2020 Corona's invitation to a new reality

Author Jean-Paul Close became aware of the problems of the industrial, capitalist, consumer, political, economic structure and globalisation of society back in 1996. He decided to step out of his executive position and comfort zone to dedicate his life to experiment with reality for himself, his surroundings and finally the world, to finally turn up with something that suits his perception of sustainable human progress and wellness best. 

Along the way he defined entrepreneurship of the 21st century, decifred the “secrets of true wellness” and finally defined the new reality referred to as Sustainocracy, the awareness driven co-creation society. In 2009 he already pinpointed 2020 as the year of the big letting go and adopting the new reality throughout the world. Meanwhile he experimented and developed this new reality in his own surroundings with the participation of many governments, citizens, entrepreneurs and scientists. Others came and observed: “It exists, we want this too”.  

Lockdown: every ending is a new beginning

The first thing we learn from the Corona Crisis is that our health and safety are core human values. And these do not come from remedial health care, politics, economics or banks. Those core values come by taking proactive, self reflective responsibility. When we flatten the curve of exposure to the coronavirus we collectively have better chances of immunizing ourselves and curing for future resilience. Around the world we witness sudden solidarity among neighbors, helping each other, singing a song together, clapping publicly for health care people. We also see humor, creativity, relativity, discussions and dialogues appear on social media that help people deal with their fears and regain some trust in themselves or their surroundings. We also see how quickly our natural environment recovers and improves with the absence of humans.  

Many of the things that happened were unthinkable only a few weeks ago. The virus and the unprecedented government measures interrupted instantly our daily trusted comfort, cleared our possible blind spots, creating room in our busy minds to look at what is happening and react. People are in essence primarily a social creature, not the uncontrolled consumerist hoarder that capitalisme wants us to be. Our real nature appears while we face a bad spill. But soon this is over. Not because a button is switched and the virus is gone. Our reserves run out, we will need to act to create our sustainable human progress, together. We can start and practice now while we have the time to reflect. 

Why Sustainocracy? 

Because Sustainocracy places our natural human being and values, not money or political interests, at the core of our societal reasoning for wellness. It seeks our harmonic, constructive (not destructive) relationship among ourselves and our environment. It works as a next awareness driven step, not by demolishing our past but using and restructuring it from an evolutionary perspective. In sustainocracy money is one of the many means, not a goal. 

This societal “awareness driven co-creation” community structure, Sustainable human evolution & Democracy (Sustainocracy), defines two important things for sustainable (regional) human wellness:

  • Our basic core natural human values: 
    • Health (in a proactive way and not to be confused with health care)
    • Safety (including respect for each other and our environment)
    • Awareness (our individual and collective learning process)
    • Co-creativity (we, people and institutions need to work together)
    • Basic daily needs (food, water, warmth, healthy air)
  • That we take responsibility together of the above in co-creative, real time democratic communities (people, government, science, education, entrepreneurship)
Time to move on to phase 3 of human evolution

As we live through the first months of the corona outbreak we see human solidarity grow, air pollution reduce or disappear, CO2 improve, water clear with the return of fish, etc. This shows us the positive impact of eliminating our old lifestyle from before the virus crisis. We have, however, not yet created a new one, we are just put on a hold. Can we use these insights for the better? 

When we place the old reality, from before the lockdown, on the sustainocratic table of challenges we notice that we do not comply with any of the core values. We were sustaining a reality based on perceived commercial abundance accessible only through money. Noone is taking proactive responsibility or is accountable for our core values, we only react when they are not there, like now. So everyone had become blindly money driven, not responsibility focussed. Over time we tried, in our local surroundings, to show people and institutions our vulnerability but they would hardly join the table. Their comfort zone was still intact, their blind spots in place. Multidisciplinary co-creation would demand genuine regional value creation and sharing, a major transformation of thinking and handling for most people and institutions. 

In one area of attention however we managed to get the full multidisciplinary “level 4” co-creation table completed back in 2010, even until now. That was on the topic of regional air quality and human health (AiREAS). Partial sustainocratic tables (often with money controlled government lacking) were achieved in city food productivity (FRE2SH), social inclusion (COS3i) and participatory co creative learning (School of Talents & Wellness).  All together it provided us with a lot of experience in this field of work. Not just in the co-creation together but also the difficulties of people and institutions to change the context driven dialogue, behavior and societal, non financial results driven contributions.

Level 4 implies the restructuring of level 1, 2 and 3

Applying Sustainocracy

Now, with the Corona outbreak, we see a tremendous mentality change. Suddenly there is massive awareness about health and other things that we used to take for granted. Certain core values are solved without enormous remedial public investments, just by letting go of our old structures and lifestyle (such as air quality in many places). Others, such as social cohesion, are receiving an unprecedented amount of attention due to the sudden impediment of connecting physically and emotionally with our loved ones. When what we took for granted is taken away it becomes often more important than when we had it so accessible that we forgot about it. People look for creative ways to compensate for their feelings and express themselves in a positive way. But let us not fool ourselves. The lockdown cannot last forever. Already lots of people are facing financial challenges and problems due to the impossibility to do their old jobs. They may even doubt if these jobs are going to come back once this is over. When we apply the sustainocratic 4 x Value criteria of entrepreneurship of the 21st century it is easy to make the distinction. A job or activity should comply with all four nowadays:

  1. Value creation for the human being in terms of helping sustain the core natural values
  2. Value creation for society in terms of care, reduced costs, social cohesion, participation
  3. Value creation for the environment, in terms of circular processes, symbiotic relationships with nature, no pollution
  4. Value creation economically for continuity

Money is hence just a means, not a goal at the expense of the other values. Other means, such as awareness, talent, creativity, engagement, etc are more valuable than money. In some cases a particular value creation of a job or activity can be placed on “zero”, while compensated with higher other value creation, but it should never be negative. Negative values go in detriment of others or nature and eventually create problems, even if the activity is economically successful. Entrepreneurship of the 21st century is 4 x Value driven only and accounts for all entrepreneurial actions, not just business but also of government, education and human participatory behavior.   

Old style governments are now creating funds to cushion current financial problems temporarily but these funds do not last forever. These governments are not seen (yet) in the activation of the new society. It does not invest in it because it is not money driven, only applauds the human voluntary initiatives as they are cost saving, not valuing the value created. We are really therefore for now on our own selves as we work towards a new government model too, often together with government, not politics. The most important capital of a society is its creative and participative population, not money or wrongly oriented control driven governance. Some forces will want us to go back to the old scenario, but do we? Probably not, simply because we have become aware of its negative impact. We need to keep the positive values that appear now and restructure ourselves to fulfill our needs locally as much as we can. We need to do this together through co-creation. 

Next to the health driven adjustments we can thank corona for we have two sustainocratic priorities that come to mind are food and helping the vulnerable. Let us see why….

Food resilience

It is springtime in the Northern Hemisphere. It is good to take responsibility directly for our food supplies. As our financial system tends to collapse we need to get access to food through direct means. Various farmers cannot supply to their traditional markets such as restaurants because they are not operating. They have supplies that need to get to the needed. As the fear (not yet the reality) of scarcity grows people will hoard more including life essentials. This will leave the most needed and people on low budgets in jeopardy. If no action is taken now anarchy will break out and public safety will turn into ghettos of aggression. This we need to avoid with common sense and collaboration.  

We can set up food productivity in gardens, around schools, in empty office buildings, on rooftops. This can be done with the involvement of these vulnerable citizens. We can introduce a circular reward system that accounts for the labour put into the food production, distribution, the sharing and processing once the food is fully grown. You can find on the internet many proven techniques for balconies, avoidance of polluted city grounds by growing crops on top instead of inside, etc. Don’t just go for the easy stuff, take herbs too, plants with nutritious and remedial values. There are also videos with things you should be careful with, in view of certain allergies or poisonous side effects. Even if the lockdown is lifted and everything goes back to the old stressful and polluting normal, this exercise is worth the try. It will change your community life and sense of security, abundance and freedom.

Care for each other    

In times of fear we all tend to go into survival mode. The more powerful and able will try to selfishly take what they need and even hoard. The vulnerable and less able enter into more difficulties. These groups will stand up and try to defend themselves. The atmosphere will get grim and chaos may appear, which is bad for everyone. The way to avoid this is to make sure everyone is served with their basic needs. That is the first step, the second one is to ask everyone to help, within their possibilities, and create the abundance we need all together. We are used to being able to get what we need through money, but when what we need is not available money becomes useless. Our basic needs are food, warmth (eg shelter and care), drinking water and healthy air. We also need each other to create trust (not fear) in the togetherness, warmth in the dialogue and care when needed. 

New small heroes

Regions that evolve now to level 4 awareness driven co-creation of our core human values are referred to as Small Heroes. They develop resilience against all kinds of issues because of their self sufficiency, social productivity, sustainocratic engagement and sharing with caring attitude. They develop high attractiveness, especially for families with children who seek genuin wellness and want to avoid the growing speculative criminality and forced money dependence in larger urban structures. They benefit from the corona inspiration and relative ease to transform from relative lack of identity to true authentic imaging of warmth and quality of life.

Small Regional Heroes

Fear for corona contact

If fear of corona contact is an impediment to initiating the above, just consider that your trip to the supermarket may get you in touch with more people than working in open air in your vegetable field or back yard. We need to get to immunize ourselves somehow so some minimum exposure will always happen, just like any other flu. There are all kinds of remedial precautions circulating already on the internet to protect you. Don’t fear and lay back for all to pass, stand up, be precautious and act, preferably the sustainocratic way: health and safety first. 

You can find publications for free download on https://sustainocracy.blog/publications. Through my Instagram (@jeanpaulclose) and Facebook accounts I share daily inspirational statements and information. It will not be easy to learn to work from the new context, especially if you are an institution or government that used to rely on the old dynamics. But it can be done with great satisfaction when your new societal ecosystem starts working in the sustainocratic way.

Good luck and if in need of any help, just let us know.

2018 is the year of diverging realities

These two short examples are illustrative before we go to 2018 and the diverging/converging realities.

How would a monkey tell a fish what it is like to climb a tree? For the monkey it is difficult to explain. For the fish problematic to understand. They both live in different worlds. The fish and monkey excel in their own living environment, context and behavior yet can hardly imaging each other’s world because it does not belong to their daily reality. They would even deny each other’s existance.

Then there is the inspirating story of the flatlanders. These are imaginary beings that live in a two dimensional world. In their world there is no up or down, just forward and backward, left and right. How do you explain these flatlanders about the existance of the third dimension in which we can deal with depth and height too? That within these 3D we can find endless amounts of 2D worlds that run parallel and even could cross each other? And that these worlds have no idea about each other’s existance. Each of these flatlanders would also be capable of denying the existance of the other ones.

When we talk about Sustainocracy as societal alternative we also find such perceptions at human level. Sustainocracy is a different reality than what we have been used to for generations and were educated into. Just watch these 10 minutes of James Wildman showing us how we fool ourselves:

Sustainocracy is also a new dimension that has been added to our society. That is new and difficult to understand. It does not require much explanation for those who have made the step already. For those who encounter the ideology and practical reality for the first time, they tend to stay in their old patterns of reasoning. They mirror Sustainocracy against their own known and accustomed way of living. That does not work. Just like a fish will never climb a tree if it keeps swimming in the water.

MDE list.jpg

On the other hand why would an ape want to convince a fish? Or should the 2D world want to understand the 3D reality? That indeed is not at all necessary. Unless one can get clear benefits from the cross over. That is one of the reasons why new realities such as Sustainocracy came about. The current (old) human reality is destroying our habitat, including our relationships among each other and our environment. The consciousness that develops involves “it needs to be done differently”. This is already a step into the direction of a new dimension of connectedness and behavioral adjustment.

The advantage of any human being is our capacity to evolve in awareness (understanding new things) in which new dimensions become visible and challenge our behavior and lifestyle. In essence we can evolve from swimming into climbing trees and learn to manage both. We are also capable of reasoning in 2 and 3 dimensions while opening up our personal and collective evolution towards 4 and 5D consciousness. The human being has unprecedented evolutionary possibilies even during a single lifetime. This also means that certain people advance in this sooner or deeper than others.

That is how the situation arises in which different realities start to appear, diverge and mingle, colliding or strengthing each other. That does not only go for the individual but also for institutions, governance and business enterprises. In 2018 new dimensions and realities manifest themselves structurally (not ad hoc anymore) as optional next to the old one.

In Sustainocracy we position “the human being” and our core natural values at the kernel of our thinking and dealing with reality. It is all about the wellness we create together, our continuity and evolution as a species. Then suddenly different rules count than the current political and economically geared situation that made us dependent of a costly hierarchical structure. For many only this single reality exists because of their dependence on it. “It is as it is”, people state with apathy. With this attitude they reason about everything as soccer player that wants to play basketball by using only soccer rules. That cannot be done of course. It is not as it is, it is the way we interpret our reality and act accordingly. Big challenges such as pollution, deforestation, destruction of life on Earth, inequality, climate change, illnesses, etc get us to think differently. To that understanding belongs new models and behavioral patterns.

2018 stands for new societal structures that at first function next to eachother with engagement of three groups of people and institutions:

  • Those that hold on to the political economic reality and their own fragmented role in it,
  • Those that structurally engage with level 4 participation (like Sustainocracy), reasoning and dealing from a holistic approach and symbiosis,
  • Those that get stuck between the two realities.

This situation we will also encounter during the city council elections in 2018 in which core human values and cocreation have penetrated the political agenda too. An example is the Brabant Health Deal.

More and more citizens group together to take responsibility for their environment and quality of life, looking for partnerships in equality and purpose with the local policy makers. Also the political economic hierarchy has no other choice than to engage in order to avoid liabilities that can be connected to the old governance model. The new reality hence gains momentum.

Still there will be regions in which so called Trump effects can occur due to the conservative capitalists that see their position weaken. The effects are being analyzed by Otto Scharmer (Theory-U) in his recent blog. He sees it all as a prelude needed for the awareness boost that precedes change.

Anyhow, and concluding, the new realities manifest themselves, show what they are about and win engagement through self aware citizens, governors, innovative entrepreneurs and institutions. This gives both tensions and positive flows. But in 2018 for the first time they will stand side by side and fight their differences in an evolutionary battle for our sustainable future. Nature itself will add to it too assuring that it will be another challenging year full of threats and opportunities. How we deal with this duality will determine our own flow.

I myself made my choice already over 20 years ago as a person. In 2009 STIR Foundation was created to host the engagement of people and institutions that wanted to shape the core human values through innovation. And since 2012 it has its own name, framework and common denomination under Sustainocracy, which expresses itself through level 4 movements such as AiREAS, FRE2SH, COS3I and School of Talents in Eindhoven, Brabant, Netherlands, Europe and the entire world. In view of this evolution 2018 will be for me individually and collectively at the side of Sustainocracy, a wonderful year.

Wishing you a sustainocratic new year

Combining ZEN Resorts and Sustainocracy

The Indian owner and global societal entrepreneur Dr. Mahendra Shah openly commits to work together with us by combining the best practice of his ZEN Resorts (healing and herb centers) in Bali with our Sustainocracy (core values driven democracy) in Brabant (the Netherlands) or our Global Health Deal of innovative awareness and health driven cocreation. This is what Dr. Shah writes:

I completely agree with the notion sustainocracy as it integrates sustainability of human beings with Democracy (Participatory positive (sustainable) interactions and actions amongst all members of the community-society as well as living in harmony and sustainably with nature.

Today the greatest local, national, regional and global 21st century challenge comprises human health and the pollution-degradation-destruction of nature. Both these aspects are critical consequences due the escalating adoption of modern lifestyles around the world. Modern lifestyles are often characterized by (1) deficient food consumption – nutritionally inadequate, food contamination and eating “on the go”; (2) little time for exercise i.e. balanced physical, psychological and spiritual exercises; (3) Stress at work often in a highly competitive, and uncaring environment focussed on meeting deadline after deadline (4) Stress at home and the family; (5) living in ever more polluted environment. These five factor cocktail is resulting in the increasing burden of ailments and diseases of modern lifestyles such as headaches, backache, blood pressure, mental stress, diabetes etc, for all of which modern medicine prescribes drugs including pills, insulin etc just to maintain health with little hope of curing.

The fundamental challenge is how to make a human being sustainable such that he or she interacts with other human beings enhancing their sustainability and also lives in nature responsibly, ensuring a sustainable environment. Democracy is at the core of sustainable relationships between all members of the community and society

For over four decades the world community has met at countless conferences and summits just formulating and endorsing agenda after agenda for sustainable development (recall 1972 Stockholm, 1992 Rio, 2002 Johannesburg etc) and so often without commitment of actions and resources for implementation. We should learn from the mushrooming technology driven silicon valleys, now in almost every urban center around the world. Let us create sustainability valleys bringing together the doers and practitioners of sustainable development and sustainable healthy human beings.

We need to establish sustainocracy centers in every viable urban and regional setting around the world to enhance sustainable development, sustainable human health and real participatory democracies. We have had a decade of experience at Zen resort Bali helping guests from around the world to experience sustainable lifestyles and adopt health eating, exercise, thinking and living in harmony with each other and with nature.

Thus I am ready and committed to partner and work with you with you towards a “combination of Zen resorts and Sustainocratic regional resilience processes could well be the highly desired evolutionary process for all cities to follow”, including three well documented operational examples, one in Bali, one in India and one in the Netherlands

Whilst it may appear difficult to convince the congregation of the Gemert castle, and also in the case of many such properties of the Vatican, that such entities, initially created for the spiritual, moral and ethical religious welfare of the community, need to be utilized and transformed in the 21st century to meet the emerging challenges of human and natures health and sustainability. There can be no better legacy for the congregation and the Vatican then seeing their historical properties utilized to enhance human health and education towards sustainable living. Governments also have a role to support such initiatives with policy and resources as in the long run a healthy society reduces the burdens of healthcare, which are escalating in this era of modern lifestyles. Such properties were created for genuine societal wellbeing and they should not become only an instrument of economic gain.

Yes let us partner up as consortium that has its own ideology (Wellness Continuum, https://marktleiderschap.wordpress.com/2016/12/18/whitepaper-wellness-continuum/), methods (Zen resorts and Sustainocratic healing of regional communities) and mobilize funding and implement.

Divine femininity

You may have witnessed the recent explosive disentanglement of masculine and feminine energy within me and my surroundings. Did it occur to you too? For me it was a brief, very confronting, highly emotional but necessary period in time that comprised exactly 7 x 7.7 = 54 days, precizely between three full moons. I am at peace for along time already with the understanding that whatever happens to me is a miniature prelude of what humankind can expect on a macro scale. In a sense it prepares me and my awareness to be of some kind of use by the time this is needed. Meanwhile I conduct my daily activities with the development of our sustainocratic groups within the City of Tomorrow concept of wellness driven cocreation. As such a new energetic field has emerged around me and is affecting me and everything that our Global STIR community does. I sense it as the emergence of Divine Femininity.

Divine feminine

The emergence of divine feminity goes through chaos

Equality man and woman

As single dad with two daughters the adult man/woman combination was fixed in me as a single identity. I was in harmony (see picture) with myself and my two children, both feminine. The masculine part of me had to structure the household, protect the family from the political economic aggressions, take care of an income, etc. The feminine part in me was caring about the growing up and wellness of my two daughters. In essence this is what our current society feels like too. Masculinety and femininity unified in a dominant masculine structure. Our political economy of hierarchies and dependence is highly masculine while the expensive care and repair system is a masculine version of feminity. Just like in my case there seems to be an unnatural kind of harmony that is about to be messed up.

Here is a short reflection about my process. My eldest daughter already moved out to live her life with her boyfriend, soon husband. When my youngest daughter started to demand her freedom and space too my own presence transformed. My single fatherhood and harmony collapsed, just like the economized masculine care society collapses. My daughter reacts on my worries “why worry? I know my limits and get support for my safety from my friends”. In essence it is exactly what I claim with Sustainocracy in the participation society “we don’t want this (expensive) care and control from government, we take responsibility ourselves, together”. The whitepaper on the wellness-continuum-2 explains this societal transformation process.

Theory is great but the reality of letting go my caring mentality into a mentality of shared responsibilities appeared as an intense inner clash. Various female messengers appeared in my life to confront me in a very short time with my old masculine greed, my tremendous sudden emotional chaos and the emergence of the divine femininity as basis for a new phase of personal harmony based on genuine equality between men and women, masculinity and femininity.

Also in the sustainocratic processes I had been the masculine representation of masculine and feminine manifestation unified in me. If I wanted to let my processes grow I would have to let go of it and allow the equality appear between the emerging divine feminity and the redefinition of old, obsolete masculine dominance. After my clash with my self and the help of several women I became surrounded by literally 100’s of women. With each and all together I developed a relationship of love on a very special, deep and exciting energetic level. At first it was confusing, because it arose my natural sexuality and masculine desire to control. But the women were very clear to me: “we don’t need your care, we want your partnership, your transparant love and divine connecting overview over the emerging reality”. They give me their partnership, love and divine femininity in return to take their authentic place in the community and act as a consequence. Wow! What a great force started to deploy itself.

Genuine equality appeared and it was beautiful. Never in my life I had experienced this before. Not even in my two broken marriages. Now I was in the midst of it and broke through into the era of pure love, the emergence of a new phase of human life, the rebirth that I have been writing about for decades had become reality, including for me. The latter surprised me maybe most. Why me? Why this way? How will this evolve? What is expected from me when emotions hit the world? We will see. I let go and learned to go with the flow.

Divine feminine1

Equality does not mean a status quo. It is hard work to sustain our core human values through open, transparant dialogue and shared emotions.

Three powerful lines of evolution defined themselves for progression in this field with our global movement:

5 core conditions

Core human values: The core human values and sustainocratic processes had brought us to this stage of breakthrough. Our core values also developed our column of values which paint a strong contrast between the worlds.

Column of Values

People may use different names or references for it but in essence our new framework for societal evolution has opened up so much space that the divine femininity could manifest itself not only individually but now also in the collective group processes men-women, women-women, men – men. Our old masculine societal structures based on power, hierarchies and dependencies crumple. We don’t want them anymore. We seek the authenticity in people without prejudice or demand, just engagement in the development of our shared core human values. New relationships emerge based on this new energetic dimension of divine femininity, change, sustainable wellness and true equality. The letting go is manifesting itself with the comfort of new connectability in genuin wellness and proper equality for masculine and feminine energy forms that interact in their values driven potential. It is difficult for both to adjust to this new reality. The memory of the old is still powerfully present yet opening up for an intense dialog about relationships, sexuality, role models, rituals, cocreation, love, true values, healing pains, eliminating old impediments, daring, fears, progress, etc. The open dialogue and shared emotions helps us deal with this new reality. It feels good, powerful, caring for us all together and very lovable among eachother. A hugging and kissing type of society emerges in Sustainocracy as a phyical contrast to the old reality where we found it hard to say even hello or touch each other.

Healing: The biggest drama of where we come from is the enormous historic and often hidden surpression and abuse of (young) women, especially in this era of economized emancipation, perceived levels of equality and freedom. Men and women are educated to perform, to be docile, to be subordinate to economic securities and not express their emotions (except maybe our greed). The divine femininity was eliminated from our reality and replaced with individualism within hierarchies, sexual abuse and aggression, disconnected from the feminine roots through excessive masculine bureaucracies and economized care systems.

Within the City of Tomorrow divine feminine representatives now group together and make programs that help people (men and women, young and old) cross their line, deal with their own and collective chaos, heal, put their past in perspective and open up to divine feminity by breaking loose from fear, hate and anger. Emotions are allowed, shared and used to evolve into understanding, awareness, love and learning. To relate in a new way with masculinity without the old dogma’s, rules and limitations. Both men and women now need to evolve into this new relationship. Personal relationships have the tendency to fall back into old behavior. It takes guts, open, transparant dialog and experimentation with new experiences to progress. As a huge community we help each other while the field of energy grows every day.

Awareness and education: The breakthrough opens up to new awareness based formats and education. New products and technologies arise to help young women (and their mothers) develop their own divine feminine awareness. Being a woman is becoming very special, with its own initiation rituals around menstruation, sexuality, sense of self leadership and ownership. Intimate initiation workshops from girl to woman, the relationship with men in different stage of their lives, awareness of the body and its secrets, pleasures and care are introducing themselfs into society, our schools and neighborhoods. An entirely new educational format emerges in which the girls and women get to discover their entire divine femininity in all aspects of their being, their development and symbiosis with their surroundings.

My own role has transformed from initiator of sustainocratic processes to the connecting facilitator between impressive masculine and feminine forces within the context of social and societal innovation (COS3I). Huge circles of social inclusion in Sustainocracy are appearing where masculine and feminine expressions of music, art, craft, sport, entrepreneurship, care for core values, etc emerge, group together and start shaping society in a totally new way. And above all, the processes are being guided primarily by women. The next blogs will develop this further with examples of female partners with powerful awareness, experience and methods that have joined our core values driven movement, teaming up with me in the field of sustainable human progress and now make it a world wide process that goes far beyond the bounderies of myself.
