How can I assist you on your Eco journey?
As an individual or as an organisation
I can offer assistance in the following ways.
Circle & Conversation
We can look at ways to instigate healthy communication and decision making practices into your life, home, school, community, council or your company.
Eco Awareness & Action
We can start by getting connected with self, nature community and planet and we can figure out what really matters to us.
And then we can turn that to Action!
Conscious Living & Zero Waste
Together we can discover optimum ways to embrace sustainable living and working practices and we can get going!
Conscious Living & Zero Waste
Talks & Workshops
In person or Online
Explore a deeper understanding of the individual and collective steps we can take to reduce waste and protect our futures.
For 5 years we as a family have been living a "Less Waste" lifestyle and have accumulated many tricks and tips to share.
I can host Zero Waste talks and workshops at your school, work place, or for your community.
We can meet online or in person, either way it is possible to have conversations where we can identify your blockages the and hiccups that keep you off the path to Conscious Living. Together we can find ways for you to integrate sustainable (for you and for planet) systemic solutions into your life and living/working spaces.
We see how this connects with people living in poverty and facing mass migration as a consequence of climate breakdown.
Themes of Our Discussions
We look at gaining an understanding of how our individual and collective actions impact locally and globally.
We uncover the story behind our consumer lifestyles, products, marketing and the harsh reality of recycling and renewables.
Adopting Sustainable habits isn't always easy, many of us find blockages in our path whether our own personal internal resistance or the external logistics. I explore these here in various Videos.
Eco Awareness and Eco Design
in your heart, home and in your work and corporation
Connecting with Self and Nature is a journey home first, it is about getting ourselves together and fit before we set off on any adventures.
What Nature is Around You
What Nature is In You?
Learning to recognise the gifts of nature and how to forage for those sustaining gifts along the Journey.
And Leaning to recognise and harvest our internal gifts too.
We can build more meaningful connections if we work together with our compassionate collaboration instincts activated, We can build resilience using the knowledge Nature shares with us.
Magic & Wonder
When did we last let the magic of nature and of the wonderful species of our planet enchant us?
Our irrevocable connection and reliance upon each other!
What can we achieve if we sit with the great mystery that life is and enjoy the uncertainty rather than fear it?
This is the Harvest from the outcomes from a Circle Gathering with the members of our Eco Istanbul Facebook Community
Regenerative Design & Eco Building
Designing and Creating Regenerative Space (and why we must!)
At its best regenerative space has the capacity to bring out the brilliance, generosity and creativity of everyone that uses it. At its worst space can, intentionally or inadvertently, become a polarising and detrimental force upon us.
The definition and design of regenerative space is a multifaceted task...

What about urban and regional scale regenerative solutions and development?
I am a founding member of the
Sustainable Urban Development Platform
which asks exactly these questions, and implements the solutions.

Circle Hosting & Connected Conversations

Meaningful Connections &
For self, couples, family and all kinds of connection, business and personal. Here is a Link to my article on the Cooking Up Dialogue Blog that explains how to create and Hold Space:
Physical, Mental & Emotional, Online Space and Space in Time, and How to create the Container that best Holds it.
Circle or Council Way and Connected Conversations
Historically we have sat in Circle whenever something important was to be discussed but also we have gathered around fires to tell stories this way since the dawn of time. Circle is in our DNA, it is also a relevant and powerful tool to ensure healthy relevant, inclusive and effective meetings in a modern-day board room or council meeting.
During Circle we ask Curated Questions to activate empathy and connection, we introduce the participants to the concept of Deep Listening and Speaking with Intention, we learn to not judge or try to solve any problems that might arise.
In both Circle and Connected Conversations, the key is to provide a non-judgemental and safe environment where people can simply be themselves, the questions are designed to be open ended and invite participants to speak from the heart and to get to the bottom of the problems, whether the group be a family or a board room of directors.
Cooking Up Dialogue
Cooking Up Dialogue
A Project about Diversity and Inclusion.
We dream of communities empowered with the tools to communicate with compassion, overcome polarisation and with a capacity to collaborate and work together on our local problems.
Please contact me if you would like to brain storm as to how we can collaborate.
I host circle gatherings, workshops and talks on a voluntary basis and will continue to do so, when time permits, for non profit organisations.
Individuals and organisations who have funds available to them will be asked to contribute fairly or in such ways as according to the gift economy.
