Soulmates, married couple and business partners since 1999, say: “In order to keep doing what we love doing – supporting people to master personal and career shifts – we had to change a lot and we have to keep changing to keep going.

ABOUT Ammon Johns 
Others say about him that he is a long-timer of Internet marketing, well respected, and described as a mentor, expert, and guru, especially in relation to SEO and search marketing. And he sort of accepts this description.
Ammon started building websites in 1996, first for himself, then for others.  Soon he found himself was spending more and more time on working out how to get traffic and custom to sites – until he decided to become  a full-time specialist in web promotion.

FROM A SUSTAINABLE TO A THRIVEABLE WORLD
STREAMED LIVE ON JANUARY 14th as part of the first ever broadcast series of THE WISDOM FACTORY
Dr. Robin Wood is working with big enterprises, not only to coach them into more sustainability, but to reach true TRIVEABILITY . His conviction is that only those who are powerful now can be a driving force of real change,
ALL EPISODES OF THE YEARS 2015 HAVE NO SEPARATE STREAMING PAGE

Dr. Robin Wood ( +Robin Wood) is Founder of the +ThriveAbility Foundation+. The ThriveAbility Index and Assessment enable organisations to take transparent strategic decisions that enhance the thrival of their key stakeholders with a lower footprint through irresistible innovation breakthroughs.

TIMESTAMPS :

0:00 TECHNICAL PROBLEMS! The audio continued although we could not know that. So Dr. Wood, after about minute 10, soldiered on without any input from us who thought we couldn’t be heard or seen.
10:00 Dr. Wood introduces himself and the topic, beginning with the Club of Rome some 40 years ago
12:00 How THRIVABILITY is using measurement to monitor the global health
13:30 He begins a presentation, paralleling personalizing our individual footprints and those on a larger scale
15:50 All living systems – and also organizations – have inputs and outputs that vary widely
16:10 Now it gets complicated because there are so many priorities
16:35 Assessment -Three axes of measurement: X = horizontal development (socio/cultural stages of development of an organization
18:00 Y axis = the vertical stage of development of the organization itself
18:50 Z axis = The “third” dimension (coming out from the paper graph toward you) compares how the organization is using up resources versus what its “fair share” of those resources should be, a very complex process!
20:15 (Heidi and I begin to come in)
21:30 Dr. Wood resumes the three axes discussion
22:30 Summary of all this Assessment stage above: how to proceed with all this information which is often a year or more “out of date”
24:40 Now continue with what works and what doesn’t: The second stage
25:15 The other Stakeholders must be Onboard
26:10 “The average lifespan, by the way, of a large corporation is 11 years.”
26:25 Dr. Wood explains why:“It’s not surprising [that] organizations are stupid.”
27:34 Oil companies are examples of this lack of vision today
28:50 “The stone age didn’t end because we ran out of stones.”
29:10 Does ThrivAbility depend on oil? No!
30:30 Groupthink and scenarios for the future
33:30 Countries can be as stupid as corporations
34:12 Isn’t it more important that through education we find those who would be capable of integral leadership?
35:35 The third stage: connecting the leadership potential and efficient pathways forward
36:30 Integral leadership status; a summary
38:19 Assuming your analysis is correct…on to stage 4, the transformation itself
39:38 Lots of Dilbert bosses!
40:10 The four stages at the individual level and collaboration of our different types
44:15 Dr. Wood’s personal adventure with a very low footprint at Perpignan
46:35 The opportunities to be more thrivable are growing all over the world
48:00 A change in tone as he discusses things at the personal level
49:15 Sustainability is like a diet but Thrivability is a fine way to eat
50:50 Robin’s vision, how to reach him and goodbyes

*What is THRIVABILITY*? Have you ever thought about THRIVING in your life? Or where you mostly concerned with SURVIVING?
Well, most of us are still in the surviving modality: being concerned about money, jobs, about the family, a constant effort to keep things going. And the idea of THRIVING belongs to a distant and unknown future.

Dr. Robin Wood   is Founder of the “ThriveAbility Foundation”.  The ThriveAbility Index and Assessment enable organisations to take transparent strategic decisions that enhance the thrival of their key stakeholders with a lower footprint through irresistible innovation breakthroughs.

Robin: My journey as a person,  the link to ThriveAbility, is the deep need I’ve always felt to be close to nature, and the pain I’ve always felt seeing the damage and destruction our industrial civilization has been inflicting on the planet, together with the growing, very serious dangers of climate change now looming over us.
Taking a careful look inside of all of us, I realised that we will need to motivate ourselves very differently in the future if we wish to survive as a species. This combined my lifelong interest in psychology, my passion for science with an aptitude for business and a love of all things integral, packaged into ThriveAbility.

INFO
When we create a map we need to explore the territory – and when the map is created, it becomes easy for others to explore the territory, too. In consequence the territory transforms and a constant update testifies the development. The Integral Map created by Ken Wilber has given orientation to so many of us for how we can understand ourselves, the world, where we are headed and what choices we can make to give our contribution in the best way possible.
In this episode we bring together 2 pioneers in creating new maps. Josef Kreitmayer is operating globally via Internet and is co-creating a map for transformational activities worldwide. Tamara Romaniuk started out in her home country Poland to connect local businesses and to teach them cross-promotion which gave great results, a real win-win instead of the former competition. She now intends to expand the Local Hero concept to other places by inspiring people to learn from her experience and then adopt it and create similar initiatives in their communities.

Josef Kreitmayer is Austrian and lives in Vienna and is working on international projects. He is a Project developer, activist, seminar leader and networker. Having studied sociology and human ecology, he has developed a cartography of projects of alternative forms of economy and innovative education initiatives – which will be the focus of our talk today. He builds this “future library” and gives courses in participatory forms of project design and leadership. find his main projects, contacts and websites on his linkedin profile:

Tamara Romaniuk comes from Poland and lives now in Berlin/Germany. She considers herself to having always been an un­con­ven­tional, un­tamed soul. She stud­ied at the Fine Arts Acad­emy and has al­ways ques­tioned what it means to be an artist. She fi­nally un­der­stood, that we are all artists and when we’re giv­ing our best, we’re be­ing artistic. Over the last decade she has cre­ated Lo­cal He­roes to pro­mote cre­ativ­ity, in­di­vid­u­al­ity and en­tre­pre­neur­ship. And this will be our focus today Find her at http://localheros.com/

About the people in conversation in this show:

ABOUT Jeff Salzman: Jeff  was a successful businessman before he left everything behind for dedicating himself entirely to the INTEGRAL message. He is offering free weekly podcasts where he discusses the most important questions of our time.
He worked with Ken Wilber for three years building the Integral Institute. He has a Masters Degree in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism from Naropa University. Jeff spent the last few years as a co-founder and a lead teacher of Boulder Integral, now The Integral Center. These days he travels, teaches and comments about current events on Integral Life and The Daily Evolver. Find him on Twitter @DailyEvolver.
He is an integralist, an evolutionary, and now a public commentator who, swimming against the current of prevailing culture, is heartened by the state and future of things. It seems to him self-evident that life is animated by the power of evolution, inside and out, and that we are riding a geyser of emergence toward a sacred world. In this blog I will make that case or grow trying! –

ABOUT Martin Shervington is an Explorer of consciousness, a marketeer, a writer on communication including in Google+ where he is very well known by his PlusYourBusiness Offers, Newsletters and Community – and also as a most valued guest in many Hangout Shows..

INTRODUCTION

Studies show that up to 80% of people who work in the corporate world don’t like what they are doing for earning their money, or they don’t like HOW they are doing what they do. They feel like robots and alienated from their creativity and initiative. And the unhappiness with the work situation is valid for bosses in the same way as it is for managers and all the other levels of employees.
“Normal” organizations kill engagement, joy and responsibility for what people are doing, they lack free space, recognition for what they are and what they are doing, and of the possibility to be part of the decision making process.

The good news is that there are many experiments going on which lead to a better work-world, to higher personal satisfaction and to a better business result. In our show we will explore how these new models look like, what problems they resolve and which ones might be created. We have 2 experts in the field to give us their experience and their vision for new operating systems for organizations.

Dennis Wittrock, M.A. in philosophy, English and in Arts. He was the  co-director and visionary of the 1st Integral European Conference (IEC 2014), as well as the  co-founder of Integral Europe and a former board member and CEO of Integrales Forum and Die Integrale Akademie in Germany, the most known Organizations which spread the Integral ‘Worldview in the German speaking countries.
Dennis works as a freelance journalist, author. He is a certified Holacracy®-Agent and -Practitioner  and trainer, as well as an integral activist and blogger. Furthermore he is  a practitioner of bodyweight-training, zen, yoga and chant.
Dennis believes that an integral approach is a key contribution to achieve human ThriveAbility on this planet.

INTRODUCTION
Just as there has been a time when life and mind were not embodied on earth, the higher planes of consciousness may also be waiting their time to become a part of ordinary embodied reality. The human body in symbiosis with nature and cosmos provides a coherent ontology for establishing a higher order of consciousness; a state of creative potentiality marked by a common primal power that inhabits and informs the prima materia of all living organisms. Situating the body in an active site of primal consciousness (Nature) and externalizing our formative consciousness (Origin), we influence everything germinal to becoming human. Participation in this context could be said to characterize the fullness of integral consciousness. Through such participation, one could discover a source of wholeness ordering one’s existence and expression that knows no human, theoretical, temporal or spatial differentiation. Like Gebser’s view of evolution and that of Sri Aurobindo, the notion that the ultimate potentials of human consciousness are enfolded in the origin- make it possible for us to conceive of reorganizing new developmental lines by tuning in to our human origins. With a renewed interest in the divine feminine, along with her originary forms and powers, an opening of the entire planet to receive the birth of a new mutation is now possible. These originary powers provide the emerging mutation with an associated way to come into our awareness, and it is pulled towards us. This may be the key to new ontology. Ontology that provides pedagogy for seeding the emergence of a new human being.

ABOUT Barbara Karlsen 
Barbara Karlsen holds a Master’s degree in Somatic Counseling Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, and is currently a PhD candidate in the Consciousness Studies Program at California Institute of Integral Studies. Her area of research is Eco philosophy, Birth Consciousness and the Feminine Divine: Towards an Integral Futurology.
Barbara is a transformational movement teacher. She has been teaching movement- based work for the past 25 years and has co-led wilderness quest journeys In her work with Emilie Conrad, the founder of the Continuum movement.

I think that we have been slow to recognize that second tier thinking won’t bring us answers.  We won’t know what to do in advance because the non-linear nature of what is out there makes it a chaos field.  You can’t pre-cook the solutions, you can only get into the chaos field and emerge them.  It’s a live gig not a recording.  Maybe we haven’t been ready to do that, because we were brought up to think we must know before we do.  Conscious Evolution means that we do before we know, and we know by doing.  It means that you take in to your hands your expertise, your sensing and intuitive skills, your pattern recognition, your understanding, your beingness, your chosen toolkit and above all your courage.  Don’t wait for academic approval of your theory – that’s not worth a damn and will arrive decades too late.  Don’t wait to qualify – you will never be qualified for the turmoil that is building.  You are as ready as you ever will be, and you will only get better by practise.  Conscious Evolution is interactive and generative.  It’s playing in the field of 4-quadrant possibility.  It’s adapting moment by moment.
Go on, be an app.  Be and do; adapt and collaborate; thrive and help thrive.

INTRODUCTION
We begin to understand how important FOOD is in our lives. Sure, we need food for maintaining our body, our lives. But this is not all. There are foods which have the capability to do harm to our bodies and there are those who have the power to heal, even from illnesses like cancer. So why would we continue to eat thoughtlessly whatever we get? whatever our eyes or our noses like – which might be deceptive. So why don’t we collectively enter into a conversation not only of WHAT to eat, but also WHY we eat and HOW we eat?
A skillful and creative cook creates tasty beauty out of literally everything, so why not create a collaboration between nutritionists and chefs? -Yeah, that’s exactly what we are doing here in this show: open your minds, hearts, ears, eyes, noses and palates and enjoy the show!
Our Guests:
Dr. med. Sven Werchan (PhD,) Nutritional Medicine, Psychotherapist, communication trainer, inspired by integral theory since 20 years, works as seminar leader, advisor, coach, lives in Berlin.
Dr.Sven Werchan says about “Integral Nutrition”
Nutrition is daily. Nutrition is everywhere. Nutrition concerns us. And nutrition is not out there. We are nutrition. Every atom of our body comes to us through nutrition.

That is, what my work is about, to expand our own consciousness about nutrition. And to use integral tools, because it is e very complex issue.

What does it mean? It means to go on a journey through our own world of eating. That includes a distinct look on “what and how much we eat”, a compassionate approach on ‚how we eat’ and our own experience with nutrition, it includes reflections on ‚why we eat’ and our ecological responsibility connected with the choices we make.

Integral nutrition is not a new diet nor it delivers strict rules. It is an invitation to find your own nutritional truth, embracing it with compassion and at the same time setting a clear intention to an evolutionary impulse towards a more integral, joyful and sustained way of dealing with nutrition in our own life’s, as culture and as global community.
It is a developmental journey towards the delightful joy of nutritional freedom. A freedom that is rooted in the love and compassion for ourselves and all beings.

Chef Dennis Littley says:
Life is good when you’re able to do what you love!

INTRODUCTION
We conclude our first season of “THE WISDOM FACTORY” with the contribution of 2 very gifted young men who have found  a balance between right and left brain activities, engaging in Integral Theory and being ARTISTS.
It is astonishing how during the last 10 years or so the age of people interested in integral ideas and active to spread the worldview has diminished drastically. Our generation began, lets say, around 40 to get interested into the deep questions of life while we now see many young men and women under 30 being seriously involved with adopting this promising perspective in their lives and in their work.

David and Scott talk about their understanding of ART within an integral framework and they will show us some of their creations. Scott sings two of his songs: “Moses Coffee” and “OM”, while David recites the text of his song “With your time”

 David Long (aka “I AM”) is an integral Artist and Philosopher who uses various medias – mostly music, painting, film, and writing – to express his passion and Ideas. You can see his art, download his music for free, check out videos and learn about other philosophical boons, artifacts, and products at IAM-DAVIDLONG.COM

Scott Marshall is an Integral Practitioner ( ILP), Special Educator, meditator, runner, musician and artist – he has created our event banner!
Scott says:   I make art in conventional ways such as on canvas, and also with computer devices.  The art object has always throughout history been an evolutionary force in the individual as well as the collective. See also HERE
