"As we awaken to our true reality, dormant supernatural powers and potential will become the norm. This book is prophetic.”  Deepak Chopra, M.D.

“As Rose deepens her self-knowledge and widens her planetary, solar system, and cosmological awareness, we follow her on this evolutionary path available to humans. Rose creates an evolutionary Cosmic Compass game with new roles for our Avatars, far beyond earlier models. I loved this book!" ~ Hazel Henderson

The New Paradigm in Politics by co-editors and co-authors Anneloes Smitsman and Alexander Laszlo and the book's series editor, Ervin Laszlo, provide an exploration of the necessary transformation of our contemporary political systems and practices. In August 2021 The Laszlo Institute hosted “The New Paradigm in Politics Symposium.” This book summarizes the key ideas and practices of 35 world-renowned thought leaders in the fields of systems science, futurism, consciousness research, public policy, law, social science, and philosophy who advocate the role of politics to create a new paradigm in human civilizational development. Contributors include Nafeez Ahmed, Frederick Tsao, Garry Jacobs, Jean Houston, Rama Mani, Violeta Bulc, Youssef Mahmoud, Charles Eisenstein, Flavia Valgiusti, Naresh Singh, and others. The New Paradigm in Politics provides the grounds for the design of systems of governance that are based on holism and interdependence—rather than the old mechanistic paradigm of dualism and separation.

Dr. Anneloes Smitsman served as the lead architect for the architecture of The SEEDS Constitution. Part 1 of the Constitution is designed as a Thrivability Compass, based on her Cosmic Compass design. The SEEDS Constitution is a unique founding document that revolutionizes governance, technology, and economics for regenerative human development. it serves the evolution and development of the SEEDS ecosystem, and serves as an evolutionary blueprint for Constitutional design for regeneration and thrivability. It became official on 10 July 2021, as the result of an extensive consultation through 8 Constitutional Assemblies, with over 1500+ comments between various drafts from 120+ people from around the world. The "Declaration" of SEEDS reads: 

"We, as the people of SEEDS, adopt this Constitution as our living compass, to co-create the evolutionary systems, cultures, and tools for thriving civilisations and the regeneration of our planet."

Love Letters from Mother Earth - The Promise of a New Beginning by Anneloes Smitsman, became an Amazon Bestseller in 2018, and will soon be available as an musical audio experience via Messages from Mother Earth with soundtracks by Alan Howarth. 

Love Letters from Mother Earth include thirteen letters in the voice of Mother Earth to guide us into the heart of our humanity and discover the essence of who. Providing essential wisdom and support that our planet, as a caring and conscious Mother, shares for this challenging time. Discover the three essential keys for actualizing our unity and transforming the root causes of thousands of years of division. 

This is the r3.0 Educational Transformation Blueprint for which Dr. Anneloes Smitsman served as the lead author, and which provides 7 Transformative Learning Perspectives for Regeneration and Thrivability. The Blueprint shares the stories, perspectives, and suggestions of an eclectic group of educators, economists, evolutionary scientists, transformation facilitators, and system designers. The seven interconnected Learning Perspectives form the foundation for the inner and outer shifts towards regeneration and thrivability. Each Learning Perspective is explored through a three-fold structure that offers various dimensions of each theme. The full Blueprint is summarized through a list of recommendations.

Into the Heart of Systems Change

Into the Heart of Systems Change, is the Ph.D. dissertation of Dr. Anneloes Smitsman, and presents her research as an external researcher at the Maastricht Sustainability Institute (formerly ICIS), Maastricht University, the Netherlands, from September 2014 to August 2019.

The dissertation offers a diagnostic integral framework for addressing key systemic conditions of the sustainability crisis. This framework is based on an exploration of the informational dynamics of healthy living systems, and the extent to which this is harmed and decoupled by mechanistic growth archetypes that are not coherent with the evolutionary process of life. Seven systemic thrivability barriers are diagnosed and explored through the case-study research, and addressed through seven transformation strategies. An essential distinction is made between systemic barriers that emerge from mechanistic growth archetypes that are decoupled from the evolutionary process of life, and systemic boundaries that emerge from the regulation of the interdependencies and evolutionary coherence of living systems. A life-centric qualitative growth model is offered with 5 Future Archetypes through a narrative of thrivability, instead of mere sustainability. Various methods are combined into an integral approach for systemic transformation, weaving together indigenous wisdom, new paradigm cosmology, informational sciences, quantum physics, evolutionary biology, and complexity sciences - grounded in the praxis of inner and outer systems change.

The case-studies explore the sense of entrapment and degeneration many people experience in mechanistic systems and cultures, as well as the conditions for inner and outer transformation. Providing new perspectives and approaches for addressing the root causes of our sustainability crisis. "Into the Heart of Systems Change" completes with a transition plan for co-creating the conditions for thrivable civilizations. The main research outcomes have since been applied worldwide for the design and governance of new economic and governance systems, such as the SEEDS Constitution and the Hypha DAO. The outcomes also serves as the main inputs for the r3.0 Educational Transformation Blueprint.

“Full of wisdom and insight, with a vision of the future everyone can benefit from in our age of change amid uncertainty. The Future Humans Trilogy by Anneloes Smitsman and Jean Houston is an act of true compassion, which exhibits empathy and understanding that leads to answers, and the answers are the essence of the world’s wisdom traditions. The stories in this Trilogy speak directly to the heart, where all inner journeys begin. When the heart awakens, the person is transformed. This Trilogy is living proof that such a radical change is desirable, possible, and necessary in everyone’s life."  

Jean Houston, Ph.D.

Principal founder of the Human Potential Movement

"Anneloes Smitsman is a leader and pioneer in the development of the architecture of creating civilizations that enhance the wellbeing of both person and planet. In this she is a treasure trove of ingenuity and wisdom. She is one whom leaders in social evolution regard as the person who has the genius to implement the revolutionary solutions and visions that can advance the necessary development of both people and planet. I, as well as many others, regard Anneloes as a female Einstein. I met prof Einstein when I was 8 years old, and he told me that his greatest quality was imagination, a quality which Anneloes shares abundantly and which informs her extraordinary creative gifts. She is a living example of what it means to walk the path of the emerging future human. 

Knowing her very well and having worked with her in the development of our books and courses, I can honestly say that she is one of the brightest minds I have ever met. She is a true renaissance woman who brings her unique gifts to the kinds of design and implementation that have the power to shift the negative trajectories of our present world, and thus she creates the designs and solutions that introduce a whole new architecture that inspires while it implements the creation of the promise and dream of a thriving world. Anneloes brings together the tools and the practical knowledge to accomplish this evolutionary task.”
