Our Call & Invitation

Our WOMENwise Community is a call and invitation for us to enter into conscious partnerships and co-creative synergies, based on respect and appreciation for the feminine and masculine principles rooted in Wisdom.

As a community we are committed to embody and practice this, personally and professionally. As Custodians for this Wisdom, we seed this into the Heart of our economic, political, cultural, and social systems.

We are each committed to the deeper shift that is required for the Good of the Whole ~ individually and as a collective of people and organisations.

We understand that our collective Thriveability rests on the quality of our relationships with each other ~ Ubuntu.

As WOMENwise Custodians we lead this shift in our societies. We, therefore, invite the men to walk this journey with us ~ in conscious relationship.  We honour their MENwise Custodianship as equal partners in this healing shift for the flourishing of our World and Future.

EARTHwise Centre

EARTHwise Centre is a wisdom-based enterprise providing custodianship, leadership, value-creation, regenerative design, capacity development, holistic education, and vision development for our collective flourishing and actualisation.

We support organizations to raise their standards, and develop internal capacity and leadership for ecological value creation and thriveability. We bring the heart back into our human activities and networks. We bridge from the collective unconscious with intuitive intelligence to appropriate action, for the Good of the Whole.


Good of the Whole

GOOD of the WHOLE‘s shared purpose is to contribute to a shift in mass consciousness and the dominant worldview of fear, scarcity and separation to love, abundance and wholeness.  We advocate and support an ethos of love and wholeness as the transformative and foundational principles that inform the fundamental character, spirit, beliefs, customs and practices of our culture.  We cultivate an enduring, unified expression and embodied, felt experience of humanity’s inherent unity, wholeness and creative potential in order to inspire and activate others to remember their individual wholeness and serve that wholeness through the collective greater good of others and the planet
