Hi, I’m Cynthia

A more beautiful and generative world is not only possible, this world is already flourishing in thousands of communities all around our planet. My mission is to link people, projects, and places for global impact. I travel the world offering facilitation for teams, consulting for purpose-driven organizations, and online coaching for emerging changemakers. I speak at events and blog on this website. I have visited 100+ projects across four continents (and counting!). When not globetrotting, I enjoy cooking nourishing meals, celebrating with friends, and hiking barefoot in the hills surrounding my Vermont home.

MEANINGFUL LIFE COACHING

Do you long to do something meaningful with your life, but don’t know where to start? Do you dream of traveling the world, living in an intentional community, or working on a project that leaves a positive impact? Are you unsatisfied with the limited options you see for education and career paths? Do you want to plug into networks of fellow changemakers?

I’d love to have a chat to talk it all through. I can recommend options to consider for your next steps, drawing from my wealth of experience living and working with alternative pathways in education, community, travel, wellness, and livelihood. My network is vast and global, so I can suggest places to visit or educational programs that fit your unique situation.

Scheduling a virtual session with me is easy.

GENERATIVE CONSULTING

For nearly a decade, I’ve dedicated my work and study to regenerating life on this planet – our soils, communities, spirit, and sanity. I have visited 100+ land-based projects and attended countless gatherings across four continents. After so long of taking in, I’m letting out a long slow exhale. My focus now isn’t to start any new initiatives but rather to amplify, connect, and serve the efforts of existing networks.

I provide strategy advice, creative solutions, network building and marketing support for initiatives that are creating a more sustainable, resilient, just, and healthy world. These are diverse communities of practice and purpose around the world – teams, organizations, companies and more.

Let’s work together to make lasting change happen.

GIFTING

In January 2018 I decided to join the gift economy.

I am committed to living in alignment with my vision for a truly loving society. This vision is a gifting culture based on the great principle of dana: selfless generosity.

I offer my contributions as acts of love: an expression of the joy it brings me to co-create. When we work together, you are free to decide how much you want to give or not give in exchange for my service. I trust that you are making the decision that is exactly right for you! If you would like to gift any amount to support me in my mission click below to give through PayPal.

GIVE A GIFT!

“When we write a poem we make a gift. When we paint a picture or build a beautiful house we make a gift. When we grow flowers and cook food we make a gift. When all these activities are performed as sacred acts, they nourish society. When we are unselfconscious, unacquisitive, and act without desire for recognition or reward, when our work emerges from a pure heart like that of a child, our actions become a gift.”
