The Proteus Initiative

approaching an ecology of consciousness

We work with all aspects of social change – consulting, facilitating, writing, teaching. We strive to bring together a sensibility for, understanding of, and practice towards the relationship between ecological wholeness and social coherence and healing. Enabling people to stretch their processes of inner and outer development to greater edges and depths; this is the foundation for socially responsive and life-supporting practices.

This innovative approach to Reflective Social Practice can be taken further by undertaking a postgraduate training up to and including Masters level, to learn more about this please contact us.

2023 contains various initiatives, both online and in-person, and we hope you may join us for at least one of them.

September at Towerland Wilderness
In September this year we are very happy to be offering two processes at Towerland, which we warmly invite you to participate in. The processes will be offered close enough to each other for you to join us for both, should you wish to.

Catching the Light, Appreciating the Dark (11th – 16th September) will take us into an exploration of the enigmatic polarities of light and dark, how each reveals and how each conceals, both without and within ourselves. To view the invitation please CLICK HERE.
