New Terrain

​Not so far on the horizon sits a new human era. ​What it will be like is still yet to be ​determined: the task at hand is to learn together how to build the world we want to live ​in with each other. The stakes are high, and it's time to develop, in words and deeds, ways ​of working effectively across differences, structural inequity and systems of exclusion. ​

An awareness of this ​voyage we're on as a species allows us to engage with and ​adapt to these new circumstances as consciously and effectively as possible. ​We can follow in the steps of those who came before us. We can look to and learn from those who are actively engaged in this work today. And we will piece it together as we go. ​

We Tip the Balance is ​for people who are hungry to learn how to build a world of individual and collective well-being out of the one we have. Through public dialogue, personal experimentation and collaborative exploration, ​we learn together how to participate more effectively in the cultural transformations upon which our collective survival and well-being depend.

Envisioning a shared future: what's the first thing that comes to mind?

What's one thing ​​you or others need to learn if we are to build a shared future of dignity and well-being? Whether ​it's still fuzzy around the edges or crystal clear​, ​even if it's just a few words, I invite you to ​​contribute your thinking ​below​. 

(The first sample post is my own. All of the fields​ in the form are optional. ​Just don't forget to push the difficult-to-see button at the very bottom.)

We Tip the Balance


​Mich creates a supportive, evolving, interactive learning experience that is as practical as it is personal. ​It's not academic, but intellectual​ and thought provoking.

Mich shows us how political meaning is made and challenges us to investigate our locations, our work in the world, and what systems our work serves or challenges.

    I think we need to relearn that we have shared humanity. I feel it slowly gets conditioned out of us beginning from the moment of our birth.

    I think we need to become students of change – not of some *thing* that changes, but of *change* as a thing!
