What is Cultural Emergence? 

Cultural Emergence is an invitation to create cultures of personal leadership, collective wisdom and Earth care. Emergence initiates breakthroughs that expand our thinking and enable us to build personal and collective resilience, and embody new ways of being and interacting.  It nourishes and empowers us to design the world we want to live in. 

Welcome to Cultural Emergence. I have been co-creating these empowering tools since 2016, with inspiration from many people. Around the world there are people who are using Cultural Emergence in their lives, families and communities for positive change. It is a joy to share Cultural Emergence with you, and to anticipate the positive ripples that may arise. I am excited to welcome you on this adventure into a hopeful future.
