More Beautiful World
What would the "More Beautiful World Our Heart Knows is Possible" look like? What would it take from each of us to get there?
I'm offering an 8-week online course and mastermind in which I will present my own research on this theme and provide a space for people to explore their role in the co-creation of this world.
The Mission Behind This Course
Charles Eisenstein coined the term "The More Beautiful World Our Heart Knows is Possible". Although everyone likely imagines a somewhat different version of this world, I find it striking how much similarity there seems to be in people's visions of this world.
Most of us wish to see a world in which nature, animals and humans live in greater harmony, without exploitation. We long for a world where we have agency over our life and our daily work feels meaningful. We wish to have loving and nourishing human bonds. We want technology to support us, not make us its slave.
Throughout the past two decades, I have been on a quest to learn what it takes to live in accordance with these principles. I had the privilege to get to dive into many different "universes". The entrepreneurial ecosystem of Berlin. The academic elites in Cambridge. Conflict zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. Shamanic tribes in Gabon, West Africa. Yogic ashrams at the foothills of the Himalayas. Other dimensions through psychedelic medicines.
In this upcoming course & mastermind program, I will share practical insights and timeless wisdom that I have acquired on my eclectic path. I will combine contents that I have taught in Business Ethics at a university level with spiritual and shamanic lessons I have learned along the way. I will also openly share things that I have learned the hard way through my unconventional lifestyle that included phases of polyamory and nomadism.
But this course is not a sequence of talks. Each 2hr session will be an hour long lecture on various topics and an hour of interactive sharing. Each participant will be encouraged to choose a project/theme which they will work on throughout the duration of the course. The project can be of personal or professional nature as long as it's related to "creating a more beautiful world".

“Action on behalf of life transforms. Because the relationship between self and the world is reciprocal, it is not a question of first getting enlightened or saved and then acting. As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer
