What is inner change?

Inner Change

 

Inner change covers those issues that affect you on a personal, interior level.

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

We believe that inner change occurs at three primary levels: emotional, physical, and valuable.

 

What is outer change?

Change

 

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.

If the past is replayed too fast, life seems futile, and humanity resembles water flowing from a tap, straight down the drain.  A film of history for today needs to be in slow motion, showing every person who ever lived as a star, though dimly visible in a night sky, a history still unexplored - Theodore Zeldin, An Intimate History of Humanity

A call to action. Time to explore these unexplored histories together.

Money

 

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.

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.
