Getting back to normal

Change is so strange, we just want it to be normal

I wonder if after World War 1 and World War 2 people thought that life would get back to normal, after all the trenches, the bombs the young lives lost?

I wonder if after the Spanish flu people thought that life would get back to normal?

We weren’t expecting covid and we want it to go away so that things can go back to normal.

Can they?

Does life every move backwards?

What is normal?

Was it so great anyway?

There have been so many changes in my life time that some people never expected to happen and some people didn’t want to happen.

We weren’t expecting the Berlin Wall to fall.

Or Aparthaid to end.

Or the Peace Agreement in Ireland.

Or gay marriage to be legalised.

Or women to be allowed to be church leaders.

Or the ban on smoking in public places.

We like to think that the world is never changing and stable.  We like to think that if we hold on tight enough, things will stand still.

Things change.

Some things crumble and new things take their place.

What new is emerging?

I’m curious.

Regenerative living coach, author, podcaster, facilitator, educator, Dr

Business as usual is no longer possible.  We need to dramatically shift how we think and live in order that the planet and all those people we share it with as well as our children's children, flourish.  This is the time of the Great Turning (Joanna Macy) and each of us can play our part in tipping life towards health and well-being for all.

Finding your thing or things can be the most radical thing you can do for your own well-being and for the well-being of the planet.

Work with me to create a life where your energy, health, social connection and emotional and social well-being are not just sustained, but improve, regeneratively. 

I am an author, educator and researcher who coaches individuals and organisations to find more regenerative ways of living and working in order to support the health of all peoples, the more than human world and future generations.

My work is based on wisdom from indigenous people, science, and my own direct relationship with people and the more than human world which have taught me about the interconnectedness of all things, and our dependency on each other for well-being.

There are more things to measure than income and status so let's start creating the world we want our grandchildren to live in.  It starts here and it starts now with each of us, daily.
