The Integral Leadership Review is publishing the series of dialogues that I have been having with Nish Dubashia inspired by David Bohm and J Krishnamurti’s dialogues. The full dialogues can also be found on our YouTube channel. Here is the first transcript in the December edition of the Integral Leadership Review.
In this talk I describe the twelve principles of energetic stewardship from Leading from the Field. If we assume, as both the new scientists and ancient wisdom traditions tell us, that all of reality is actually composed of interlocking dynamic energy fields, that life is a continuous process of organising energetic information into form, then what does that mean for the way we need to lead our organisations, be they business, civil society, government, community or even family systems? This talk goes into the broader perspective as well as exploring twelve specific principles for taking into account the subtle dimension of reality as we lead our initiatives. Peter’s latest book, Leading from the Field, provides an illustrated guide to this work.
- describes the importance of engaging with energy and information fields for successful leadership;
- explains simply the relationship between the subtle and manifest dimensions of our worlds;
- describes how to put the twelve principles of energetic stewardship into practice in your own leadership contexts.
This is a talk I gave on Brian Bates’ work on the Wyrd – a West European Tradition of Subtle Interconnectedness.
In the so-called “Dark Ages” Western Europe was home to the Anglo-Saxons and Norse. These cultures had great respect for the interconnected web of life that they referred to as “wyrd”. Over the last decades the Western world has imported Eastern concepts such as ch’i which have helped us to rediscover the sacred/hidden dimensions of reality. However, few people know that we had our own native concepts, language and practices for the subtle world. Brian Bates, in his book The Way of Wyrd, brought it to our attention, creating a novel based on an ancient manuscript in the British Library that tells the story of a missionary scribe being sent to discover the ways of the “pagans.”
This talk explores the world of wyrd and how it relates to eastern traditions as well as recent scientific discoveries. It is part of the Merry Musings series with Ubiquity University.

Nish Dubashia and I have been having a series of great dialogues inspired by the dialogues of David Bohm and J Krishnamurti. Nish met Bohm who appreciated his model that integrates the world’s religious and mystical traditions. We recorded the dialogues and have decided to share them with the world via this YouTube channel. And we’re not done yet! Enjoy!
I had a great dialogue with Brenda Dunne who co-lead the 28 years of research at Princeton into intention and consciousness. The conclusions she shares about the nature of reality are critical for our times.
