About Dr. Sven Werchan

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.

He says:
*Life is good when you’re able to do what you love!*

From SUSTAINABILITY to THRIVEABILITY with Dr.Robin L.Wood

streamed live January 14th 2015

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

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.

See my website for more of the backstory: http://www.rlw.zone. and http://thriveability.zone/
