Regenerative Leadership

Regenerative LeadershiBy Laura Storm and Giles Hutchins

Regenerative leadership and the online learning journey that I did with Laura Storm – changed my life, I was trying on looking at how to apply permaculture values to business structures when the Cambridge mentor that I was talking with said right you have to read this book.. and it was the answer to all of my questions about how to create living systems in a business structure. I chose to do that in my industry of fashion and the niche here of working with small hives – but this works of course for industry, corporates, governments and community based systems.

The book gathers together and makes clear the various work done by many amazing players in living systems and whole systems thinking, such as the great Donnella Meadows, Daniel Christian Whal, Otto Scharmer, Charles Eisenstein,and the original work of William McDonough & Michael Braungart.

It changed my view on how to build a business, that it doesn’t have to be about one person winning and others loosing in a degenerative way – as it is in our current economic system.  I was able to play and work with applying a balance throughout society. It isn’t that we have to become communists to do this, we can create structures that resemble nature, in nature there is always a balance, it is living and breathing.  As we see in climate change when you upset the balance of an ecosystem injustice and suffering occur.

The book shows us that we can look to reconnect to nature, each other and what we create inside of this re-connection in such a beautiful and powerful way.  It gave me real inspiration and so I started to create my own ecosystem with its principles.

So, if you want to learn more – grab a copy of this – it is AMAZING.

Why Talk to a Guru? When You Can Whisper to a Horse. The art of Natural Leadership
Author: Paul Hunting
Horse Joy – The Natural Leadership Centre – with Paul Hunting

Why talk to a Guru?

Why talk to a Guru?

I met Paul several years ago.. and one afternoon later, i was happy to be changing jobs, and leaping into the unkown with a plan, and trust in myself.. a few years later, with many great experiences behind me, the experience of Horse Joy still remains as something i can’t explan and relish.

This book is profound. It deserves a second reading. This is more than about horses. It’s about you.” Terry Tillman, World Renowned Leadership Coach, Trainer and Best-Selling Author Natural leadership liberates your right and destiny to have a joy-filled, healthy, abundant life. ‘Guru?’ offers you practical keys to unlock the spiritual intelligence that enables this. It shows how skilled coaching alongside horses will help you harness your natural potential to create a sustainable future and lead the life you are meant to. This is not about horses – nor about coaching, business, psychology, philosophy, physics or theology. Inspired by one man’s evolving relationship with horses – and through them to the spirit in all things – it challenges all these disciplines to raise their game. It is an extraordinary work: sometimes subtle, sometimes passionate, always provocative. ‘Why talk to a guru? When you can whisper to a horse’ With this intriguing question, Paul Hunting challenges our assumptions and paradigms that conceal the truth of who we are. He reveals phenomenal insights into the nature of man and the universe.

It will enrage those with ‘sacred cows’ to keep and liberate those who are truly looking for greater meaning, purpose, and joy. With his horses he both honours and cancels out the animal in us. We are left holding our true spiritual nature in the palm of our hand. While primarily intended to unleash authentic, natural leadership in sustainable businesses, he is spotlighting the cause of issues unconsciously affecting us all. ‘Guru?’ is a practical antidote to the primordial superstitions of religious dogma, New Age ‘psychism’ and the nihilistic reductionism of modern science – all equally demeaning to the true nature of the human spirit. This work is essential reading for those who really do care about a sustainable future and are willing to pick up the gauntlet to become part of the solution.
