The Time Is Now

What You Give Your Energy to Matters

Let’s face it - we imagine and build differently when energized than when drained. But what if we had the energy to imagine & create the better systems we deserve AND maintain our personal well-being?

We Face Big Challenges

Our communities are on fire from racism, inequality, climate change and the many other problems facing us.

Working for Change Can Be Exhausting

We live in a world created by the imagination of few people with money and power and fighting to create different realities can leave us drained, burnt out and disengaged.

Focus Is on How Money Moves in the World Instead of How Our Energy Moves

In the process we treat some people and their creativity and intelligence as disposable. Our energy is a precious currency that we need to move with more intention.

The Cultural Context Has Made Us Forget We Have Agency Over Our Energy

The mismanagement of our energy prevents us from making our best contributions to the world.
