Is reNourish Studio Right for Me?

1.

I am looking to regenerate my purpose in order to bring forward the vision I have for my community.

2.

I am accomplishing great things but concerned my efforts aren’t shifting the food system as a whole.

3.

I am excited to work on my own development in order to evolve my business.

4.

I am seeking a supportive community that goes beyond networking or training, and works to develop systems together.

5.

I have the time to dedicate to the majority of the scheduled Zoom and in-person sessions for the duration of three years (see dates below).

6.

I see that there is more beyond improving the health of the farm, and want to work on whole community well-being but don’t know how.

7.

I am in a leadership role in my business that is participating in food being delivered from farm to plate to compost: farming and ranching, food processing, packaged food brand, food distribution, restaurant, farmer support business (farm input sales), composting, and food business investing.
Then come think, work, commune and do business differently with us.
When and Where
We Gather
My time with reNourish Studio has been profound. The experiences and the environment is curated so thoughtfully so as to create meaningful interactions between the participants while challenging the ways we think and currently operate our businesses. I’ve found new potential in my work through a community that facilitates thought-provoking conversations, and even some tears, over meals and laughter.

Three immersive in-person gatherings a year for 2-3 days. We will gather as a community for authentic connection. We will celebrate food produced in a deep relationship to place, at farms and in rural areas where we can experience living system principles. These experiences will be curated and participatory, with all of us contributing to the working of the weekend. They promise to connect each of us more deeply with one another and the purpose we are carrying out through our businesses.

How We Will Work
We will be working through frameworks and processes sourced from Regenesis Institute and The Carol Sanford Institute, connected to a lineage of The Fourth Way, stewarded by G.I. Gurdjieff, J.G. Bennett, David Bohm, Charlie Krone, and their communities.
We are working from these premises:
• The way we source our thinking matters

• Working in a mechanical way won’t get us where we need to go, instead we will explore a living systems paradigm and create from this perspective.

• Inner transformation in how we think, how we work, and who we are being is essential to make change in our businesses and the world.

• We are working to regenerate the current system instead of tearing it down or building a new one.

• It is essential to work on wholes, not fragments. We must consider the whole of ecosystems and all living beings.

• Instead of attempting to do everything on our own and scale our successful businesses, we will work on how to create a vitalizing energy so we create cultural change and many stakeholders participate with us in multigenerational systems change.

• Learning by doing – applying what we are learning immediately to our businesses to test, learn, and iterate.

• Searching for hidden potential and bringing it into existence, letting go of knowing what all of the outcomes of our efforts will be.

• We will not rely on experts and instead build our own understanding through experimentation, application, and self-reflection.

• Learning from each other in a community accelerates our development.

Regenerative development is about growing the capability of living beings— humans, communities, ecosystems—to co-evolve toward ever higher orders of diversity, complexity, creativity, and life. In other words, regeneration is the process by which potential gets moved into existence.
