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 Merry Musing goes into a broader energetic perspective as well as exploring twelve specific principles for taking into account the subtle dimension of reality as we lead our initiatives.Continue reading
A talk by Peter Merry at the Embodiment Conference on Embodying the Future.

In order to reach up to higher dimensions we need to send our roots deeper. This session will explore the role of the body in working with subtle energies, and what we need to do individually and collectively to be able to unlock the promise that this work holds.Continue reading
