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

  • function as a space for hosting Art, Stewardship, Conciliation and Reconciliation

  • council 

  • empathy motivated hosting + leadership 

  • open-sourced social dynamics

  • peer-to-peer networks and patronage

  • feature commons amenities, performances, workshops, lectures & sound baths

  • pay-it-forward dynamics

  • regenerative principles

  • Transition + Climate Resiliency measures

  • zero waste and cradle-to-cradle operations

  • environmental installations

  • co-working spaces + playscapes

  • Self-Care and holistic healing environments

  • act as a space to shift from a materialist or transactional-based culture to relationship based with custodianship values

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, belonging, community enrichment, and innovation to incentivize and garner traction for the 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.
