Two worlds

when love falls apart

Like Comment

We are walking.

We both see a dead rabbit in the road.

I exclaim and want to move it,

you step in first.


You step in

and kick it to the kerb,

I hurt.


You pick it up by the tale,

fingers protected in a plastic bag,

and let the dogs sniff it

as you swing it around.

I hurt.


You drop it in grass,

it lands awkwardly.

I hurt.


I bend,

smooth it,

stroke it,

it is warm,


it’s life feels close by.

I whisper thanks for it,

tell it to go,

tell it I am here,

that I see,

that I value,

that I care.


You stand and watch.


You see a dead rabbit in the road.

I see life in its precious, connected, dying beauty.


We live in two worlds.

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.
