Foundations

The following framework was created by Jane:

The ReSourcing Compass™ provides a framework for mapping your life and career path forward. This multi layered model includes:

  • a 4 step visioning & planning process – discover, dream, design and dance,
  • nature’s principles to guide decision making – regenerative, beneficial, diverse, fair & prosperous,
  • a 5 part relationship map – that explores one’s relationship to self, Spirit, Earth, Society and Economy

Ecological Frameworks:

Biophilia means “love of life or living systems”. The biophilia hypothesis suggests that the instinctive bond between human beings and other speciesfreepic.com - hands-in-shape-of-heart-on-a-tree_1004-13 developed as an evolutionary response – our natural love for life helps sustain life . Based on the documented benefits of sensory and visual connection with nature, biophilic principles are now being applied to design places where we live, work, learn and heal that reconnect us with the natural world.

Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested BiomimicryVeerpatterns and strategies. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies—new ways of living—that are well-adapted to life on earth over the long haul.  Nature has already solved many of the problems we are grappling with – after billions of years of research and development, failures are fossils, and what surrounds us is the secret to survival.

regenisis
Regenesis Group 
operates from the premise that in order to transform the planet, we humans must first transform ourselves and pattern the way we work after the way nature works. The Regenerative Practitioner program offers a systemic framework for learning how to work simultaneously on growing your own capability to become a transformative agent while evolving the potential of the greater whole through your work.

permaculturePermaculture is a creative design process based on whole-systems thinking, ethics and design principles. It guides us to mimic relationships and patterns we find in nature that can be applied to agriculture, ecological building, appropriate technology, education and economics. Permaculture principles have also been adapted to human community building, and personal health and finance.

the-natural-step
The Natural Step (TNS) 
framework, sets out the system conditions for the sustainability of human activities on Earth into the future. The TNS four system conditions are derived from a scientific understanding of the socio-ecological systems we live in. This systems based approach has been applied in businesses and communities around the world as well as in the design of buildings.

“Study Nature, love Nature, stay close to Nature. It will never fail you.”
