What is the TENDERHEART principle ?

An Empathy incubator project for community council and collective commons space for compassionately shifting from an Industrial Growth Society to a Regenerative and Life-Affirming Society.  

As a community-scaled collective it would function with:

  • transparency in decision-making and finances

  • council (compassionate listening)

  • empathy motivated hosting / leadership 

  • open-sourced social dynamics

  • peer-to-peer networks

  • feature performances, workshops, lectures & sound baths

  • pay-it-forward dynamics

  • regenerative principles

  • Transition + Resiliency measures (post-carbon strategies)

  • zero waste and cradle-to-cradle operations

  • environmental installations

  • co-working spaces + playscapes

  • Self-Care and holistic healing environments

The commons space would include a curated reading library, cafe environment, empathy training, local community project outlines, council meetings, an array of multi-disciplined collaboration, and potential live-work contracts for including costs of labor.

Functioning in this way is what is called:

Beneficial novelty- 

Using the social momentum of connection, enthusiasm, authentic experiences, community enrichment, and innovation to garner traction for the necessary stewardship of our economies, ecologies, and societies. 

The goal of this Collective is to:

-Provide a container of support for communities with the desire to shift their cultures from within to a holistic pattern of care and custodianship for economies, ecologies, and society.

-Integrate dynamic governance with indigenous wisdom to create a container for evolving self-governance and build our capacities for nested stewardship. 

-Facilitate a spectrum of social murmurations which move at the speed of trust, flow in the direction of empathy, and act in proximity to nature's rhythm.


With these dynamics, we can arrive in common vision to dispel myths of dystopia and utopia alike. Removing both the clutches of cynacism and pedestals of escapism alike. Creating meaningful cultural shifts for the expression of a more beautiful, just, and resilient Earth.

The Kinfinity program is intended to function while nested within the TenderHeart Principle for a community to support parents, educators, skillshare facilitators, youth, and students in a process of resilience and equity building informed by THEM.
We are currently forming a Regenerative Culture Agency of like-minded and like-hearted folks to feature beginning 2021.
