With the earth in mind

The Essence: With The Earth In Mind (WTEIM) is a systemic framework that invites people to explore thoughts, feelings and actions around climate change and intertwined social injustice environmental destruction issues. It raises self-awareness and makes possible conversations that people might not otherwise have. It invites them to explore critical issues and brings potential for meaningful change, systemically or personally. It raises awareness of regenerative steps, giving cause for hope, and inspiring them to become more intentional, purposeful and proactive. It can be used by anyone involved in coaching, mentoring, facilitation, team building, community building, and more.

I have introduced this to several groups of coaches and refined the tool each time. I have coached several clients with it to good effect in raising their insight, communicating their feelings, and building an active hope.

Key learnings:

  1. Short introduction – long teaching isn’t necessary – just show them the image, highlight the 3 layers and what they stand for, then see where they go with it
  2. “What are you drawn to” is often the most fruitful question
  3. If more direction / structure is required you can lead them through through the Identities, The Integrators or the Elements
