EARTHwise Centre exists to support humanity during this time of tipping point change with the wisdom, consciousness, and living architecture of our Earth. Founded in 2015 by Anneloes Smitsman, Kurt Barnes, and Justine Page.
We have since grown into a global community of people from all over the world who share the Vision for a thrivable world with regenerative cultures and systems. Together we learn, experiment, discover, and practice how to become wise like our Earth and grow from the heart of our humanity - as future humans of a new era.
Our services support the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), while taking this further to lead for whole systems change.
Systemic Solutions for our Civilizational Transformation
During tipping point times our choices carry far more impacts, opening whole new possibilities. Through the Tipping Point System we explore how our harmonically aligned efforts, talents, love, and wisdom can unlock our collective genius and form the systemic solutions for this time.
OUR TPS IS OUR GPS ~ OUR THRIVABILITY COMPASS FOR WHOLE SYSTEMS CHANGE
Here we bring the best of our scientific knowledge, digital technologies, indigenous wisdom, entrepreneurial practice and collective leadership together to become the future humans of the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
We are currently working on the co-creation of a Tipping Point World Song under the leadership of award-winning composer and singer Sasha Siem. This World Song is inspired by Our Vision from Mother Earth. together with our Tipping Point Wisdom Collaboratory.
Into the Heart of Systems Change
Learn more about the importance of our evolutionary coherence, what it is about, and how to transform our societies by applying EARTHwise intelligence based on living system principles for our societal development.
This groundbreaking PhD dissertation, "Into the Heart of Systems Change" by EARTHwise Founder Dr Anneloes Smitsman, provides the scientific foundations for our EARTHwise strategies, system design, and programs. Anneloes received her degree of Doctor from the School of Business and Economics, Maastricht University, the Netherlands, where she conducted her Ph.D. as external researcher at the Maastricht Sustainable Institute (formerly ICIS). Her dissertation is gaining international traction for the innovative guidance it provides through its Transition Plan for a Thrivability Civilisation and for addressing the systemic thrivability barriers in resolving our greatest societal challenges.
Love Letters from Mother Earth
The Amazon Bestseller "Love Letters from Mother Earth – The Promise of a New Beginning" is written by Dr Anneloes Smitsman based on her conversations with our Earth as a Mother who guides us into the heart of our true humanity. Through these 13 Letters of Love we discover who we are from a planetary perspective and receive the wisdom from Mother Earth for this challenging time.
These thirteen Letters provide us with three essential keys for the actualization of our Unity. By accessing these keys of wisdom we start to see and understand the root causes of the thousands of years of division and disunity that have caused so much suffering. Mother Earth promises and shows us how a new cycle of time, a new beginning, is possible born from unity and wholeness, by the power of Love. This prepares us as co-creators of a New Story based on the actualization of our true humanity.
This book has been highly acclaimed by Dr Jean Houston, Dr Jude Currivan, Chief Phil Lane, and many others, and contains a foreword by Prof dr. Alexander Laszlo. The letters are also the source of inspiration for our Tipping Point World Song. Our EARTHwise Vision is based on Letter 7.
The Future Normals Webinar Series
Envisioning a post-coronavirus world
This transformational new webinar series results from a unique collaboration between EARTHwise Centre and r3.0, both founding members of the EARTHwise Tipping Point System. The coronavirus crisis has revealed even more strongly that dualistically polarized systems are incapable of guiding us through periods of crisis, in fact they are the very reason that we sink so deep into crisis. With dualistically polarized systems we mean the kind of dynamics that create divisions such as “economic gain versus health priorities”, “climate priorities versus business interests”, “state safety versus individual freedom”, and so forth.
The “Future Normals” webinars explore the necessary ’transition pathways’, r3.0’s language of multi-level transformation, to get us out of dualistic argumentation and old unsustainable normals, by offering a Third Way approach for moving out of the crisis. The ‘Third Way’ is a unique approach developed by Dr Anneloes Smitsman based on her PhD research at Maastricht University, the Netherlands.
