This podcast, titled “The Wisdom of Darkness,” explores the practice of darkness retreats, which have been used by hermits and monks for centuries but are now practiced more widely around the world. The hosts share their own experiences with darkness retreats, discuss the background of the practice in different spiritual traditions, and address common misconceptions about it. They also discuss best practices for preparing for a darkness retreat, including considerations for nutrition, exercise, and medication, and address concerns around psychological health and safety. The hosts also delve into the neurobiological correlates of spending extended periods in darkness and how this experience differs from a psychedelic experience. The podcast is led by Severin Geser, a meditation practitioner and astrologer who co-created The Hermitage retreat center in Guatemala.
Millions of digital nomads live a life many aspire to. The numbers are hard to quantify, but the statistics speak for 16 million digital nomads from the US alone. And over 35 million at least worldwide. And the numbers – especially during and after the pandemic keep rising sharply. They are anticipated to grow to 1 billion people working remotely by 2035. Most of us share the dream of working and living remotely for at least a couple of months per year. And some dream of living in a community as a way of life. In this episode, we will deep dive into Cohere – The Future of Living with Dakotah Apostolou.
With billions of dollars flowing into the Psychedelic Renaissance, in this podcast, we disentangle some of the myths around psychedelics and shed light on how to build the architecture, scaffolding, and governance to use that money wisely. A lot of the capital flowing into the third wave of psychedelics is using the underlying, extractive nature of capitalism to maximize shareholder value. In this episode, we get to know how Marik Hazan, with Tabula Rasa Ventures, is trying to make a difference in the exploding market.
This podcast takes a deep dive into the third wave of the Psychedelic Renaissance. The first half of the conversation explores the plant medicines market, how to create a safe and supportive ceremonial space, and a critical exploration of the market at large. We then go to the fringes where Web3 and psychedelics create a whole new realm of value flows, networks, and ultimately the possibility of consciousness itself. This leads to new ways to outcompete the capitalist paradigm.
In this episode, we explore the concept of sustainability beyond the triple bottom line. We discuss the importance of rethinking our business models and moving towards a regenerative paradigm.

Louise helps leaders make sense of the emergent future and effect change to become more resilient. In this episode, we will look into the ways to make systemic change happen in a business setting. Is it more in the realm of adoption and mainstreaming of less bad (like saving energy, and carbon) behaviour in business? Or is it rather in radically rethinking business models at the core?
Stephen Reid is a teacher, technologist, and coach devoted to the flourishing of Life on Earth who has trained in the fields of complexity science, physics, software development, transformational coaching, meditation, and plant medicine.

“Incarnation is non-accidental and non-arbitrary.” In this podcast we dive deep into the weeds of spirituality: Why does she focus on soul work and discerns it from those proclaiming that ascension is the answer? We need to embody spirituality as a vessel for spirit in action. We take a critical view of the psychedelic renaissance. Another important topic of discussion will be what can we do to prevent spiritual bypassing, spiritual materialism, and spiritual narcissism?

We explore Integral Investing and what makes this framework so meaningful, as the Theta Model implements the Parity between People, Planet, Prosperity – with Purpose and Passion.
The field of investing has changed drastically from 20 years ago. Now we have much more variety of companies with better marketing strategies that attract especially inexperienced investors. So, how can we avoid investing in companies that use various tools for greenwashing? How can we be more conscious when it comes to investing?
The market for spirituality is exploding. With massive second order effects kicking in like poor transparency, phony gurus, idolizing and sugarcoating spiritual bypassing.

Why is it important to discern states and stages of consciousness? How can we prevent spiritual bypassing and spiritual materialism?
Unbeknownst to many currencies have an underlying design. Where this was since the dawning of humanity, an undertaking of the privileged view today with the advent of blockchain technology we see a plethora of initiatives sprouting. For this reason Ferenanda Ibarra and me link currency design to collective intelligence and other vital social factors that help shape the future of the different value exchange methods. As she quotes from one of her very first exposures to the topic: “Neither of you are going to go anywhere if we don’t fundamentally change one thing – the structure of money”.
“Protecting the rainforest and protecting the indigenous are one and the same.”
In this crucial junction of history, bridging indigenous wisdom as well as balancing the masculine and feminine is all the more important.

Especially in times of the many divides and the multi-crises we find ourselves in, bridging wisdom traditions and weaving unlikely alliances is more important than ever. “Most large-scale climate action to date has focused upon practical solutions to physical problems. Increasingly however, voices in the sustainability field warn that neglect of inner factors driving the climate crisis leaves theories of change wanting; in part explaining the failure of current policies to deliver adequate response.”

Why medicine is not the answer! More medicine is not the answer! There’s a lot of different medicines out there. Choose wisely!
The medicine is but a catalyst. You need to do the work. Be aware – set, setting, dose make a huge difference.
It’s all about the integration in your everyday life. How can we ensure peak experiences not leading to hyper narcissistic inflated egos?
The title seems almost a contradiction as we see the housing and affordability crisis mainly driven by extractive real estate business models in many metropolitan areas around the globe.
But this is not carved in stone. We can truly sense into the soul of a property and feel into what that space within its given surrounding really wants to serve for. And create the circumstances that enable a broad variety of stakeholders to cocreate a place full of abundance including the arts and take sustainability really to the next level.
How can we facilitate the many chrysalis cells for the emerging, regenerative paradigm that are so far often not connected, when already aligning groups is quite challenging? We truly need groups of groups that share a common North Star, all while they still pursue their own goals, obviously. This is an undertaking that has never been done before on a global scale. But we know leaps in history are possible, from the abolition of slavery, the women’s liberations movement, the end of Apartheid, the fall of the Berlin wall.
What could be a new way to imagine politics?
In this episode we are diving deep into the weeds of Citizen Action Networks (CAN). We reflect how much of the inner worlds we all inhabit, from the trauma we hold, to the memetic center of gravities that steer our perception of reality, to the culture we need to nourish, for a “Politics of Waking Up”.
We live in times where it is obvious that the current economic paradigm cannot uphold much longer. In this week’s session we are going to focus on very hands-on examples that redefine impact investing, to ensure that the human factor and wellbeing is counted in, as well as sense into intergenerational investment and new ways to create impact through multi-stakeholder relationships, breaking up the barrier between classical philanthropy and impact investing.
We are living in a world where meditation has become a commodity and the spiritual market is booming. There is meditation for burn-out prevention, to alleviate stress, to make managers more successful, for better sleeping. It is sold as a panacea for roundabout everything. And exactly that we are going to debunk in this week’s episode.
In the first edition of „catalyzing radical systemic change“ we are looking into the very foundations that make up our everyday reality as citizens and share hands-on examples to build a regenerative future together.
