Restoring Communities

While it’s impractical for us to share every aspect of nature with one another, it’s possible to share the monetary value that we assign to nature. By sharing we can unleash a cultural, technological, ecological, and spiritual renaissance.

Making Cities Smarter Than Their Bankers

The banking
system encircles and ensnares people, buildings and environments,
defining cities, credit-rating some higher, no matter their quality of

and incentives for livability.

Sacred Economics
envisions a world where people do things for love, not money. What would you do, freed from

life.

We return to Boston for the explosive conclusion to the DNC protests,
and then journey back to Maine to decompress with Wolf, with unforseen
consequences.

The Sky Starts an Inch off the Ground

Transformation is messy: your old

transformational processes have some things in common, and as these
collective crises converge upon us they make "normal" unlivable. So whether we
intend to or not we're pushed to a different way of being.
