On taking up any significant transformational issue, it soon becomes evident that knowing, though necessary and urgent, is not enough: understanding and wisdom are needed, too.
It also becomes starkly evident that these qualities – knowledge, understanding and wisdom – become effective when grown, shared, held and practiced in common with others.
The power of human agency is collective. For generations this agency has been extremely energetic and clever. Having separated so far from nature, however, human agency has not been wise – for us, for our planet, for life as a whole. Now it is urgent to bring wisdom back into human understanding and collaboration, discovered – recovered – in the depths of nature, from which we humans are truly inseparable.
Hunger for wise agency, for learning in this way, is rapidly emerging, while challenges to viable continuity of living together are also multiplying. H3uni is therefore offering a dynamic seedbank of methods, lively ways and means for bringing about regenerative responses collectively to ever-changing circumstances.
Life manifests in self-creating ecological systems interacting strongly, ingeniously – and hopefully – with one another at various levels of recursion, to bring forth ever-growing and ever-nourishing diversity. At every order of magnitude, from micro- to macroscopic, living entities develop clear identities and congruent participation (giving and receiving) in their locally embedded systems. Together, these synthesise microverses, macroverses and our known universe of organic proliferation.
Humans are made of this stuff, too, obviously; although centuries of emphasis on analytical thinking have given prominence and priority to ideas of separation: to only half, if that, of our true integral role in planetary life.
H3Uni is a store of ways for systemic inquiry, study, practice and successful transformation. Available immediately for people who need it, and as a store of know-how and do-how for people in future. As seeds spring to life when watered, so our methods flower to abundance with spirited human engagement.
We must urgently curate our resource of understanding and methods for maximum accessibility to current and future generations, as they awaken to their need for them. The growing Resource Library, together with course materials and recordings, research work and papers, offer a fertile transformational seedbank.
Perhaps, in undertaking this vital work, we may become good ancestors for coming generations.
