The EARTHwise Tipping Point System is a wisdom collaboratory designed to promote our innate evolutionary coherence.
We each are a Tipping Point
Together through ~ songs for action, soulful narratives, co-creative challenges, courageous conversations, quests, regenerative actions, and experiences we love ~ we bring our world into being
During this time of huge societal and personal change it is so important to realize our personal and collective tipping point potential. Through the Tipping Point System and our Wisdom Collaboratory, we explore how our harmonically aligned efforts, talents, love, and wisdom can form a generative social tipping point to bring our world into being.
Here we bring the best of our scientific knowledge, digital technologies, indigenous wisdom, entrepreneurial practice and collective leadership together to become the possibility for the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
Inspired by Mother Earth, our guiding principles:
- Our planet Earth is a conscious being who gives us Life, for us she is Mother Earth. We are part of her.
- Her living systems are evolutionary coherent, this ensures that Life can evolve through increasing diversity and deepening complexity that remains unified. We can learn from her.
- When our evolutionary coherence decreases, disease, conflict, violence, and viral patterns increase. We can change this.
- Our evolutionary coherence is like music, tuned to the cosmic harmonics of our Universe. In here lies the key to regenerate the health of our world and planet. We can apply this.
- When our systems become more evolutionary coherent, health, wellbeing, and peace grow stronger. We can invest in this.
- The COVID-19 crisis is a major wake-up call to listen to our planet. We are listening now.
- For the first time ever, it is possible now to Sing our World to Life together. We are acting now, for thrivable world and future.
“The time is now to create harmony, life-giving relationships with ourselves, each other, and the earth. The Tipping Point System provides us a holistic, heart-centered, inspirational and action-oriented way forward.” ~ Dr Anita Sanchez (PhD), Tipping Point Council, Aztec and Latina, author of The Four Sacred Gifts: Indigenous Wisdom for Modern Times
Why "Tipping Point System"
and why this decade?
Evolutionary Coherence as Music
Imagine that our great composers Bach, Mozart, Beethoven would be alive today, and instead of composing music they compose the orchestra of systems? How would a harmonic system as governance, democracy, and economy feel, taste, look, and be like? What would be our experience of Life, ourselves, and our world if we could hear the consonance and dissonance of our human-made systems?
Right now, during this time of incredible change, and also in the face of many challenges, we have to be able to tap into personal and collective resources that we cannot access if our minds are blocked and in fear. When we are in a musical state of consciousness, we are in flow and receptive. We are then in much deeper harmony with Life and our creative potential.
Our living Cosmos communicates through Sound as Music. We literally are Music. Harmonic music creates coherence. When there is coherence, information becomes aligned and new possibilities open up.
Without evolutionary coherence our systems turns destructive. The diversity and complexity of our systems then start to fight itself, like under the influence of a virus, because it doesn’t have a sense of unity. When our evolutionary coherence breaks down, our world eventually collapses.
This is our greatest task right now - to regenerate our evolutionary coherence for our planetary and collective health and wellbeing. That is why through the Tipping Point System we start with Music.
Singing our Future Into Being
We are currently working on the co-creation of a Tipping Point World Song to celebrate Mother Earth, together with our Indigenous Wisdom Council. This World Song is inspired by Our Vision from Mother Earth.
Evolutionary Coherent Growth
The growth pattern of evolutionary coherent living systems is vitally different from our mainstream societal growth patterns. The biggest difference is that the evolutionary coherence of living systems ensures that the systemic complexity and diversity does not turn destructive.
The low evolutionary coherence of many of our societal and economic systems may well be the decisive factor why our dominant growth patterns, characterised by rapid expansive extractive growth, have become so dualistically polarized and harmful to life as a whole. Perhaps, one of nature's most important teachings is that growth does not need to cost life through constant win-lose dynamics. Being EARTHwise is all about that understanding in action.
Our contribution for developing a thrivability growth pattern
The Tipping Point System through its wisdom collaboratory provides essential creative input and a deeper systemic listening capacity for rebuilding our worlds post-COVID 19, based on sound living system principles. The current COVID-19 crisis reveals even more clearly the importance of applying the thrivability principles of healthy living systems in the design and operations of our societal growth systems.
The Tipping Point System applies the Third Way that has been developed by Dr Anneloes Smitsman, based on her PhD research for addressing the systemic thrivability barriers of our dominant extractive mechanistic growth systems, as well as the r3.0 informational infrastructure for regenerative, redistributive, and resilient economies. The Third Way with the r3.0 Blueprints in-forms a qualitative thrivability growth system that is value-driven and based on the implicate order growth dynamics of living systems.
If you like to learn more about this, join us for the Tipping Point Conversations "Future Normals" webinar series, which starts May 20th. Together, we will explore and make concrete the Future Normals of a new economic system in a post-COVID 19 world.
Creating evolutionary coherent attractors for generative social tipping points
The Tipping Point System is designed to promote our innate evolutionary coherence within the systems we are and form. This is based on the implicate order Cosmic growth dynamics of our Universe - within the Nano: individual systems (you), to Micro: local community and city systems, to Meso: country, cultural and national systems, to Macro: global and bioregional systems.
Our key methodology for promoting our innate evolutionary coherence is by co-creating evolutionary coherent attractors, which are embedded, placed, and interconnected in strategic places. Those attractors can be you, and me as evolutionary coherent EARTHwise people, as well as Tipping Point songs for action, like our anthem, Tipping Point conversations, festivals, and much more.
We are building our capacity for a global transition team via our online EARTHwise courses and membership program. The EARTHwise Leadership Quest Program, is specifically designed to build the capacity of a global transition team, and support people in discovering, actualizing and applying their Tipping Point potential. The 4th online Leadership Quest has just started, and enrolment is still open for more people to join.
Into the Birth Canal
Our current decade 2020-2030 has started with the COVID-19 crisis, which has stopped our business as usual and is forcing us to review what truly matters. Through the Tipping Point System we are living together into the questions of how, together, we can rebuild our worlds in healthy holistic ways. Never before has systemic transformation and the understanding of healthy living systems become this important.
If we don't learn deeply from this crisis, the next crisis that looms around the corner as our climate instability worsens, will hit us even harder.
We are literally in the birth canal now of our collective rite of passage, a point of no return. Now what was seemingly impossible before has arrived and is here. Never before has our tipping point potential become so impactful - for better or for worse.
We consciously and collaboratively work with the potentials of collapse tipping points, by attracting the build up potential to new generative directions - using the evolutionary coherent power of Music, Story, EARTHwise people, and experiences we Love.
EARTHwise Tipping Point Partnership Alliance
Evolutionary coherent living system are collaborative systems. It is only through partnership that we can resolve and transform our greatest societal challenges. Together we can become a generative social tipping point infused with love for a thrivable world and future.
