Seeking the Source of Regenerative Culture: Jenny Finn

Jenny Finn's life has been an adventure. As a young woman she broke suddenly from addiction. She then found herself on a discovery journey into life-centred ways of interacting with the world.

She says that while we all must consider the context in which we find ourselves, we do not have to rebel or conform. Jenny and her peers have identified and refined a set of five Sourced Design principles to guide us in responding to the world's current needs and shaping regenerative culture.

As she shares her story in this episode, Jenny speaks to the primacy of direct experience and relational examples, the five principles of Sourced Design, and what life is like as one who answers to a life calling.

Jenny is co-founder of Springhouse Community School in Pilot, Virginia. Springhouse is a multi-generational community of learners courageously exploring the path to regenerative culture.

Peter Pula has been exploring the pathways to social evolution since founding the Grassroots Review in his hometown of Peterborough in 1992. Since then he has served on the boards of civil society and arts organizations and served as board president on two of them.

He has been actively involved in federal politics and led a corporate communications firm. Axiom News was incorporated under his leadership in 2009 and went on to establish the practice of Generative Journalism in an international arena.
 
In 2015, Axiom News founded and funded the Peterborough Dialogues in its hometown. The Peterborough Dialogues hosted over 350 deep community dialogues, established and refined hosting arts, and has had lasting impact in the Peterborough community. For this work in community, Peter was awarded the 2017 Brian L. Desbiens Community Service Award by Fleming College after being nominated by his peers and members of the community.

Peter works in support of deep democracy and passionately but lightly-held spaces for citizen-led community development. He believes that artfully hosted dialogue and generative media making are together a necessary social innovation for cultivating local-living abundance.

Peter is an artful dialogue host, newsroom director, team leader, mentor, trainer, and consultant. He can be a supportive force in the cultivation of initiatives in your community, network, or organization.
