Seeing with Nature’s Mind: Problem Evolving for a Living World
April 27, 2018 to April 30, 2018

By triangulating the perspectives of traditional tracking (pattern reading), living systems thinking (pattern thinking) and regenerative design (pattern design), we can relearn to see with Nature’s Mind and act as essential members of this living world with essential roles. She is dying for us to play.

It begins with an understanding of how living systems function through direct observation and experience, and deepens as we learn to see and feel from the perspective of ourselves as fellow animate beings.
