Wholeness - at the level of Planet Earth - with Stephen Reid
Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this episode I am speaking with Stephen Reid.

Stephen is currently a co-director of Dandelion Collective (the not-for-profit worker co-operative behind the Psychedelic Society, and a teacher of two open courses Tools for the Regenerative Renaissance and Introduction to Crypto & DeFi. Previously, he was the youngest ever board member of Greenpeace UK, he co-founded NEON New Economy Organisers Network and worked as a technology consultant for the Labour Party, the Living Wage Foundation and 350.org.

Stephen has an MPhys in Physics from the University of Oxford, where he specialised in quantum field theory, and an MRes in Complexity Sciences from the University of Bristol.

I felt like I was listening to a young sage from a better future. I am sure you will enjoy Stephen’s fascinating and multi-layered insights about Wholeness and in fact life itself at the Level of the entire planet – the fifth and last systemic level in this season.

You will hopefully also feel inspired to follow my Call to Action (CTA) which comes right after the conversation with Stephen at the end of this episode (you can check the chapter notes in your app for precise time - if you need a re-listen to take notes).

Change starts with you, in the here-and now. So start by starting
