What is outer change?
Change
Halcyon Identifies 31 May 2020

 

Outer change covers those issues that exist in the external world.

Distinct from other advisers, coaches or consultants, Halcyon specialises in helping you understand and deal with both outer and inner change, believing that only by finding such a balance can you thrive fully.

We believe that outer change occurs at seven primary levels: Cultural; Economic; Environmental; Organisational; Political; Societal and Technological.

 

What's Changing? - Money
Money
Halcyon Impacts 29 May 2020

 

Fundamental shifts in the world of work are eroding traditional social safety nets. Could a universal basic income (UBI) be the solution? UBI isn’t a new idea, according to the Basic Income Earth Network, which  says it was originally ignored, but growing fears surrounding job automation have stoked an interest in basic income.

 

Please see below selected recent basic income-related change.

On the Parva Carta
Magna Carta
Halcyon In Kal… 29 May 2020

 

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 Trees

KGP 8 May 2020

 

I wonder about the trees,” Robert Frost wrote. Monumental in size, alive but inert, they inhabit a different temporality than ours. Some species’ life spans can be measured in human generations. We wake to find that a tree’s leaves have turned, or register, come spring, its sturdier trunk. But such changes are always perceived after the fact. We’ll never see them unfold, with our own eyes, in human time.

No one has been able to capture this 3,200-year-old tree in one image before – until now.

On A Mundane Comedy

The Divine Comedy

 

This page will contain regular updates about A Mundane Comedy, Halcyon founder Dominic Kelleher's new book, which will be published later in 2020. We will be publishing extracts on this site and across social media from the second quarter of 2020. Please feel free to contact us with any questions about the book.

Please see the first extract below.

 

Introduction

This book is about what’s going wrong in the world, and about how people are trying to make things better, a hard task made harder still by the fact that, while we have the illusion of constancy, our lives are in fact characterised by continuous change, both out there in the physical world and inside our heads.
