    #45 - Planetary Commons & The Future of Network States

    #45 - Planetary Commons & The Future of Network States

    When we observe the state of affairs on a broad scale, we become painfully aware that the institutions governing the planet are operating on outdated systems. For new pluralistic governance models to emerge, we need to rethink the foundations, mechanisms, and processes at play on a fundamental level and prepare for an inevitable transition.

    It’s my great pleasure to share this podcast with Anastasia Kalinina, co-founder of the reState Foundation, which aims to reimagine the future of governance and global collaboration.

    Find here the most exciting nuggets we explored:


    After discovering the ceilings of what legacy systems are capable of in senior positions at international organizations and institutions, like the UN and WEF, with reState Foundation, we’re aiming to reimagine the future of governance, global collaboration, and accelerating the transition to more desired futures as a human family. 
    Governance systems worldwide struggle to harness the full potential of emerging technologies, limiting people's ability to shape agendas on both local and global levels. 
    On a global level - we need better planetary coordination mechanisms to define and manage global commons. Peer-to-peer, participatory, global citizen assemblies, new planetary institutions, etc.
    We are sleepwalking toward the edge of a cliff, against the backdrop of a planetary catastrophe that is only beginning to unfold, destined to drastically reshape our lives. What we need is calm and non-delirious systems thinking, a skill that can be developed over time.
    We need to enhance cooperation to the level of a mature Technosphere. This is really what the new ecosystemic technologies such as Web3, blockchain, open source and the like are about, to move from a narcissistic vision of isolated entities, unaware of their impact, to cooperative and ecologically aware ecosystems.
    We're failing to convey the magnitude of the shift we're experiencing. It is our generation that is being called upon to make this transition. Our lifestyles are destined to transform, whether we like it or not. While history has seen a few collapses of civilizations, what sets this moment apart is that we're now part of a fully entangled planetary civilization — where food systems, energy systems, oceans, technology, and everything else are intricately intertwined and impact one another.
    Transitioning from the enlightened Newtonian worldview to a quantum worldview, how can we broaden the notion of agency and rights to include all forms of life? Considering that the Earth's population encompasses not only humans, how do we design for a more-than-human world? How does this expand accountability vis-à-vis the wholeness of life?
    How can we reimagine energy systems, food systems, urban design, education, logistics, data, policy, finance, future of monetary systems, economic systems, healthcare, governance and organizational culture? 
    A case for the planetary commons: I advocate for cosmo-localism, i.e. the subsidiarity of material production, but the supersidiarity of immaterial collaboration. The evolution of civilization can be seen as a pulsation of the commons, with the extractive institutions of markets and states in charge of ascending periods, followed by a popular striving to re-invent the only regenerative and protective institution that is the commons. 
    Planetary commons recognize the complexities and interdependencies inherent in the Earth system and acknowledge the potential of an all-encompassing commons approach that extends its focus beyond facilitating equal access to resources (current international law around commons), to one that is focused on safe-guarding critical Earth system regulating functions. 
    When we look at the future of network states, we recognize that there are roughly 35 million digital nomads in the world, with the financial power equal to the GDP of Germany, so people choose kinship based on shared visions and aspirations as oppo

    #44 Trauma Healing & NeuroBalancing

    #44 Trauma Healing & NeuroBalancing

    It seems our culture appropriates, wraps and repackages almost anything it can get its hands on. So, after yoga, meditation, plant medicine, the newest buzz word seems to be trauma. But beyond it being - in my eyes often banalized - what is actually trauma? And how does it relate to NeuroBalancing?

    It’s my great pleasure to be in this virtual room together today with Johannes Eisenburger, one of my closest friends and a trained trauma therapist. So, like always in this podcast series, before we dive into the topic itself: What were the pivotal moments in your life that made you the human being that you are - and how do they relate to the overarching topic of today?


    Let’s start defining trauma: The difference between shock, developmental and attachment trauma.
    Survival strategies and coping mechanisms.
    Your near death experience and the biggest aviation accident in German history.
    Why do people - depending on the depth of their trauma - continuously retraumatize themselves?
    The Drama Triangle - and how to break free of that vicious cycle. 
    Our healing journeys: Let’s share some commonalities in our healing journey (shock trauma) and maybe also some differences. Especially where the different modalities helped us. 
    Neuro-states dictate how we feel, think and engage with the world. 
    Nervous system eats strategy for breakfast.
    How does trauma relate to a dysregulated nervous system?
    The dark side of the psychedelic renaissance, like psychosis or spiritual narcissism.
    Choose your guides wisely! 
    Finally - why did you consciously coin your work neuro-balancing, instead of trauma healing?

    Johannes EisenburgerEmerging from a backdrop of profound adversities and enlightening triumphs, Johannes has woven his life challenges into a powerful narrative of empowerment, passion, and transformation. His journey is a testament to his unwavering commitment to not just survive but thrive in the face of adversity.Johannes' story takes a profound turn when he faced a near-death experience following a severe accident.



    In that moment, he journeyed into the light, encountering his grandfather and experiencing a profound sense of peace. This encounter with the divine shifted his perspective on life and death, dispelling his fear of mortality.Motivated by a desire to break free from societal pressures that emphasized outer achievements over inner authenticity, Johannes embarked on a path of self-discovery.

    He discovered an innate ability to read people and situations, adapting himself to societal norms to seek validation and love. Like many, he wore a facade to navigate life's challenges, concealing his true emotions beneath layers of achievement, overthinking, and relentless activity.However, life's inevitable trials struck with the loss of two close friends to cancer, both within the same week. Johannes found himself falling into a deep well of suppressed sadness and pain, leading to a profound period of depression. It was in this dark abyss that he confronted his inner demons and began the transformative work of healing.Johannes' journey shifted from running and escaping to facing his shadows head-on.



    He took responsibility for his emotions, setting him on a path of profound personal growth. From pain emerged purpose, and Johannes emerged from his trials as a beacon of resilience, strength, and authenticity. Today, Johannes draws upon his personal experience and expertise in somatic trauma-therapy to guide high-achieving entrepreneurs, helping them confront the immense stressors of rapid business scaling.



    He is an expert in navigating trauma, transforming it into a source of strength and wisdom. Johannes' story is a testament to the power of facing one's deepest fears and emerging stronger, grounded, and purpose-driven. He is here to hold space for those on their own transformative journeys, helping them unlock their truest nature an

    #43 Moving Mountains: Sacred Plant Medicine, Psychospiritual Integration & Social Change that Honors Life

    #43 Moving Mountains: Sacred Plant Medicine, Psychospiritual Integration & Social Change that Honors Life

    Millions of people use plant medicine every year under various circumstances. Little focus is often taken on how to integrate and embody these visionary states into everyday life. 

    It’s my great pleasure to be in this virtual room together with Dr. Katherine D. Coder, who is working in this field for over 10 years. 

    There’s three main areas of focus that we will touch upon in this episode:


    How do we best integrate plant medicine after the ceremony ends?
    What role does trauma play in integration?
    The intersection of spiritual awakening and social change.



    Like always in my podcast series, and handing over to you:

    What are the pivotal biographical moments that made you the human being that you are and show up with your purpose in the way you do?

    When the Ceremony ends: How do we best integrate plant medicine?


    Psychedelics are very seductive! Introducing Visionary Plant Medicine Integration: Power and Pitfalls
    How much ceremony is too much ceremony? And, when is ceremony not the best next step?
    If your shaman is not from your culture or local to you, what can you do to integrate after a ceremony? Who do you turn to? Especially highlighting the differences in traditional and “western/integrated/neo-shamanic settings”
    What do you do when ceremony reveals trauma? How can you find and trust the “right guides” with a trauma informed background.
    What kind of support do you need post-ceremony to help yourself fully heal? 
    How can you ground your work with visionary plants and walk the teachings in your daily life? Especially focus on psycho spiritual discipline and practices.



    What role does trauma play in integration?


    somatically informed and trained facilitators
    bringing the visionary state back into soma to be fully embodied, importance of working with dissociation and gently shifting out of the trauma-based identity

    Example – deep sense of something being “wrong” with me
    Archetypal death-rebirth cycle

    Sharing some of your own healing practice & offerings

    The intersection of spiritual awakening and social change


    Promotion of Compassionate Action in Premodernity: Indigenous traditions, The Axial Age, Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions, Indian religious traditions: Hinduism and Buddhism, Ancient Greek traditions
    Moving Toward the Interdependence of Social Action and Spirituality & Reconsidering the path of spiritual development
    Contemporary Socially Engaged Spirituality

    Social action as a spiritual practice
    Varieties of socially engaged spirituality

    How can we ensure that all these peak experiences people get do not further spiritual narcissism? 

    Dr. Katherine Coder
