A Mundane Comedy is Halcyon's new book. Extracts are appearing on this site and on selected social media during mid 2020. Please get in touch with any questions about the book or related Halcyon services.

Part consultancy, part thinktank, part social enterprise, Halcyon helps you prepare for and respond to personal, organisational and societal change.

Kindness

On the Parva Carta

Magna Carta

 

This is an evolving manifesto, more modest than great charters calling for widespread political change, or updated commandments for our time, or even simple poems for our time.

Instead, Halcyon's small charter is primarily a call for inner change, leading to outer change.

We want to help people think more about how they can nurture key values, chief amongst them kindness.

For examples of other inspiring charters, see e.g. 

On Wond'ring...

 

...Aloud".  Relative latecomer, perfect and tiny; seeping into my senses in my imperfect and tiny Mini arriving at the tennis club during the summer of 1986, just before calm convention came fat, content and unexpectedly into view on the horizon, arrived and stayed. 

Grown ever deeper roots down the years.  Wistful rather than yearning.  Moment(s) in time.  Ultimate line is the ultimate line, and, I'm living it a little more - if not outwardly every day yet as I should - then steadily and a little more nonetheless, for which I'm grateful...
