Thursday March 14th, 2024 · 12:30 - 14:00 h Universal Time Coordinated (UTC)

Live translation will be provided into Spanish and Portuguese.

Healthy Human Culture (HHC) is a set of understandings and practices developed by Sophy Banks that help create relationships, communities and societies where all beings can thrive. It explains why we create harm even when we don’t mean to, and how we can address this with compassionate and effective action.

Sophy Banks was one of the catalyzers of the Transition movement, focusing on inner perspectives and internal dynamics, such as widespread burnout. Her work with the Transition Movement was a rich source of learnings for her development of Healthy Human Culture.

In this short webinar we will introduce one of the key resources: the 4 Quadrant map. This map allows us to track health and unhealth in the different levels of any system, whether that is your community, organisation or family, and identify ways to move towards more health.

NOTE: Please bring pen and paper if available to you.
We invite you, as participant, to agree to show up with care and respect for yourself and each other, to take care of your body and know all of our exercises are optional. Listen with an open heart.

Sophy Banks' eclectic life has been guided by an overarching question: what helps humans to create healthy, joyful, life affirming ways of being, and why do we so often not, even when we really mean to? Her current work focuses on two areas which feel vital in these times – recreating practices of shared grief tending, and exploring Healthy Human Culture, the culmination of her life’s journey so far.

Inspired by the research "Transforming Conflict A Group Relations Perspective" as well as Healthy Human Culture approach, she came up with that beautiful digital drawing.
