#AGoldenCivilization Movement Launched on March Fourth!

AnEveningwithGeorgeKinder.jpg
I was deeply moved and inspired by how George eloquently described, and has brilliantly mapped the only possible way forward for us as a species. I know these truths in my bones and have built my own private practice helping individuals out of outworn patterns and into living new creative ways of being. George is inviting this and more on a global scale. He has a thorough understanding of what our larger political and economic systems are based on, and is able to specifically assess what’s no longer working while introducing new possibilities for the future. Of course, this can only be accomplished with a fundamental shift in consciousness and so he gracefully introduces his expertise in mindfulness. In the past, I’ve attended two conferences with His Holiness at MIT’s Dalaï Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values where they admitted that a shift in consciousness was absolutely necessary to make crucial decisions in areas of global impact such as environmental engineering and sustainability in big business. George is also putting together these needed worlds of a more enlightened consciousness, changes in commerce, political reform and earth sustainability, but he is taking this out of academia and calling on our individual participation. We can bring our collective ideals, creativity, enthusiasm and active involvement to the Golden Conversations taking place all over the world. I look forward to being part of these conversations towards the creative enlightening of our future.
Many thanks!!

Mindfulness Mapped: A Leader’s Guide to the Present Moment

Step boldly into your greatness by accessing the present moment. Thought leader, mindfulness teacher/author, and finance guru George Kinder unveils his life’s work with a Map of Mindfulness. He uses the map to explain new forms of leadership, economics, and democracy all rooted in the present moment.

This radical 60-minute talk offers insight into how you can personally apply his methods to access your inner leader and enhance your performance in every aspect of life: at work, with your family, and in your relationships. Kinder explores how strong leadership skills come from being present. Always residing in the present moment means you are ready for anything from inspired action to empathic wisdom.

His leadership system democratizes entrepreneurial spirit, maximizing both innovation and growth across society as it maximizes the efficient allocation of human capital. He shifts the frame of economic thinking by grounding all of space and time in the present moment and argues that moments of freedom rather than moments of transaction become our focus. He proposes self-knowledge as a more sustainable motivator than self-interest. In just one hour, you will understand the present, how to access it, and how it enhances your leadership potential.

A Facilitator's Guide to Hosting Golden Civilization Conversations

It's time to Life Plan civilization! Kinder Institute founder, George Kinder, leads a live training focused on hosting community conversations for a Golden Civilization. Inspired by his latest book, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness, George encourages you to step into leadership roles within your communities and help groups vision the future and live into it now!

Towards a Golden Civilisation - Conversation on Primrose Hill, 21 November 2018

In late October 2018, George Kinder’s good friend Julian Powe invited 37 of his friends, ranging in age by 50 years, to “come and experiment” with him and his wife, Jacqueline, at their home on Primrose Hill in London. A group of 25 gathered on a Wednesday evening to, as Julian put it: “Imagine a thousand years into the future there is a Golden Civilisation.  What does it look like?  Feel like?  How do people communicate, exchange goods, and govern themselves?  And what else can we each do to move towards it right now? Bring your wildest ideas and most personal values to a conversation about the future - and come and enjoy a convivial and civil (perhaps even goldenly so!) evening on the 21st.” What came out of that first meeting was a beautiful vision poem of all the qualities of a Golden Civilization. This poem would be read at future Golden Civilization Conversations as an example of what others are doing and how close each groups’ visions tend to be. See for yourself!

Let's Create a Golden Civilization!

Over nine years ago, I began writing my latest book,  Golden Civilization & The Map of Mindfulness , as a reflection on the Banking Crisis, the Great Recession, and the distrust of the financial services industry that I spent my professional life combating. I wanted to address with positive visioning many of the societal structures and systems that caused it and that require change to bring authenticity, and both the exhilaration and peace of freedom sustainably into civilization. 

And, something occurred to me as I was finishing the book: If we live in a participatory democracy, then we have the power to deliver ourselves into a Golden Civilization. Not within a thousand years or a thousand generations, but  now . We need only come together, establish the most clear and powerful vision of what it is, and then take the action necessary immediately to make it happen.

In my book, I share what I think will take us to a Golden Civilization. and certainly the ideas are revolutionary and groundbreaking, but it is just my perspective. My aim is much greater. What I really want is to listen to and build without delay what Homo sapiens all over the world think a Golden Civilization would be. I want conversations to be thriving and intermingling the world over! Families gathering in living rooms, neighbors conversing around the kitchen table, students creating visions in the classroom, communities coming together to act in unison, and groups everywhere connecting with each other online. The  Golden Civilization Conversation  movement was born and we want more voices at the table so we can create a Golden Civilization within this generation.

Fast forward seven months and the conversation movement is taking place on five continents and growing every day. All over the globe, people have chosen to be leaders in their communities by holding conversations that vision the future and commitments to create it now. 

Join me.
