A handbook to help you find your flow and change the world. This is a visual guide, packed with tools you need for these times of social and environmental crisis. The tools are concepts and practices for wellbeing of self, communities and the whole planet. Most of the tools are my own ideas, and some are borrowed from other people. Where they are borrowed, I've made my own images to represent them or have tweaked familiar diagrams, and I've credited the originator of the idea. Each page of content can be printed and used as a handout or poster.
I'm a visual thinker. My ideas come to me as shapes, and I need to turn other people's ideas into pictures so that I can understand them. I really believe that visuals are needed to help communicate the Earth crisis and the solutions we need. If you're the same, I hope you find this book useful and inspiring. Most of the illustrations are handmade with ink or collage.
In 2006, I gave up my job to set up a company, Flow Associates. I wanted to do work where I could get into a state of flow, and to help others do the same. As the Earth's troubles have worsened, I have chosen work that helps tackle them. In 2018, I had the idea for Climate Museum UK, an experimental museum that stirs and collects responses to the Earth crisis.
This is the first complete draft of Find Your Flow and Change the World. A few illustrations need some fine-tuning, and with your feedback the content can be improved. It's a big handbook of 114 pages, and has been created over the past four years, so I hope you'll find it rich, thoughtful and helpful.
