Embracing the 3 Harmonies video

Discover how embodying the harmony within, with others and with nature provides a practical, powerful fast-track to a brighter future – for you and the world.

This is the presentation I did in the workshop on May 31. It explores what you need in a time of upheaval and how the vision and practice of embodying the 3 harmonies can be such a great help.

People are describing it as:

  • “so helpful, particularly at this time”
  • “great content!!! it brings many concepts together in a very easy to understand format”
  • “really love the way you have evolved the concept of the three harmonies by adding another dimension to it and also providing the anthesis, the 3 dominations”

In addition to powerful, practical concepts, it includes exercise for moving from anxiety to agency, for celebrating all that you are already doing for a brighter future and for listening to your future-self as you take your next steps.

Accelerate your ability to embody the 3 harmonies

The world needs your gifts now more than ever. Bright Future Now was built for these profoundly transformational times to help you activate and amplify the mindsets, skillsets and community you need to fully manifest your gifts – all in the context of the 3 harmonies. 

“On the surface it’s a course on complex systems
and how they work in human life, culture and business.
At a deeper level it’s an immersion into how real change is really activated.”

If this speaks to you, I invite you to join us in the Jul/Aug Bright Future Now course. 

The Jul/Aug cohort is already 2/3 full. Saturday, June 20, is the last day for registration. The course runs Jul 11 to Aug 30 but we do important pre-course onboarding so it’s good to register as early as possible. If you’d like to join us, this is the time to act – learn more or register here. Payment plans and financial aid are available.

Embracing the Three Harmonies – free online workshop on May 31

Have you ever felt anxious, frustrated or helpless as you watch events unfold in the world around you? You’re not alone. Yet we have much more potential agency than we think we do.

In this time of deep change, I’ve been discovering new strengths in an old friend, strengths that expand your capacity to accelerate the shift to a brighter future. I’m excited to share those strengths with you through a free online workshop this coming Sunday, May 31, at 10am PDT (click here for the time in your timezone). Please use this link to register.

Embracing the Three Harmonies: a practical, powerful fast-track from anxiety to agency

For the past 20 years, I’ve been living into the vision of “Embody the three harmonies: within, with others, with nature.” These three harmonies are at the heart of what we do in the Bright Future Network.

Yet in the last couple of months we’ve been discovering new ways to use the three harmonies as a fast-track from anxiety to agency. I’d love to share these with you.

The three harmonies provide a framework and a toolkit that expands your possibilities, that enables you to always find a meaningful way to make a difference – for yourself and for the world – regardless of your situation. They celebrates inner, interpersonal and broader outer work as mutually supportive and co-equal. In every moment, there’s always something you can do, at some scale, that brings us closer to a brighter future.

The workshop include a brief introductory presentation, experiential exercises with tools for moving out of anxiety and expanding your sense of agency, small-group co-learning breakouts plus Q&A time. I expect it to run about 90 minutes.

Register now for the workshop via this link.

The workshop stands on its own and it’s also part of our Taste of Bright Future Now series. A number of the participants will be graduates from the Bright Future Now course, so if you’re curious about or interested in this life-changing course, the event will provide a wonderful way to get a feel for the people and culture within the Bright Future program.

Talk with a Bright Future Network Member

If you’re interested in the Bright Future Now course but still have questions, we invite you to talk with a Bright Future Network member to see if the course is for you.

You can expect a spacious conversation where you’ll have plenty of opportunity to ask your questions and hear about the experiences of a network member.

The course isn’t for everyone but if you’re

  • more interested in building the new culture than fighting the old
  • ready to combine personal, interpersonal and project-oriented skill-building
  • interested in connecting and collaborating with others from all kinds of backgrounds who also look toward the future with a positive sense of possibilities

you’ll likely be delighted to discover what the course and the network can offer you.

As a bonus, the “talk with” page gives you a window into the diversity of people in the network. Take a look.
