Five ingredients to systemic change

Using your voice

Changing the course of events becomes possible when one person uses the power of their voice to describe a vision and a path to the vision so compelling to the hearts of the listeners that the head cannot find a useful argument against it.

 

Making Incremental examples

Starting small with quick wins and demonstrating how small shifts lead to bigger changes will bring people along and build confidence

 

Sustained determination

Chipping away at it. Remembering that failure only happens when you have given up. If you hold onto the bigger picture then of course there will be stops and starts, recalculations and reviews and listening and learning along the way.

 

Leveraging privilege to support people with less privilege

Building a better future for everyone changes the energy of a mass of people

 

Working towards the tipping point

Creating a critical mass where a slow change in a system suddenly becomes irreversible

 

Maria’s Midweek Mindfulness

For the last 20 years I have worked towards a vision of people living in harmony with our values without the use of violence. Many others are doing the same. What will it take to reach a tipping point?
