    Joan Scheckel Works With Feeling (encore)

    Joan Scheckel Works With Feeling (encore)

    We’re so excited to share this past conversation with master storyteller, Joan Scheckel. Joan has a preternatural gift for story structure, emotional rhythm and throughline. At the core of everything she does is the theory that we can tell stories that heal, stories that are generated from connection, meaning, purpose and feeling, rather than from conflict.

    Rasmus Nørgaard on building a sustainable future

    In today's episode, Rasmus Nørgaard shares his unique perspective on the connection between property development and systems thinking. You might wonder how these two converge, but as Rasmus’ journey unfolds, it becomes evident that the built environment plays a pivotal role in the larger systems we navigate. What sets Rasmus apart is not just his heart, it’s commitment to a triple bottom line and incorporating economic, social, and planetary considerations into his builds. Join us for a fascinating exploration that looks to redefine success and sustainability in property development and the housing economy.

jonibilderback ,

2 episodes in and they were revolutionary!!

Number 22 was everything to me! I was nearly in tears and I can’t love that episode more! Then #21 was also so incredible and had me thinking in ways I’ve never thought before. To put some of those concepts into words was amazing. Anyways, thanks for two amazing episodes! I’ve subscribed and hopefully I’ll love the others too!

Love them!

A wonderful way to bring Dumo Feather alive to us living abroad.
