GINI is: a transformative local/global project researching and developing the understanding, skills and strategies to be able to re-empower both individuals and community/society from the inside out, to reconnect to a sense of universal 'WE' and build a foundation that supports collaborative intelligence.


In a world seemingly addicted to and still apparently hopeful that polarised politics or any kind of combative approach is somehow going to produce solutions to everyone's problems, this project takes a significantly different approach.  The polarised approach is consistent with what it addresses; short term solutions for a minority that finance a system that favours them. For everyone else, in varying degrees of access to available resources, there is the experience of ever being at the effect of and dealing with the ever changing complexities and consequences of those who make the decisions with them at the end of the chain of power.

That this decaying and increasingly fragile system is becoming unfit for any kind of long term purpose is becoming clearer, though those that benefit the most from it may be the last to realise it.  We, and many others, have new ideas, proposals based around the following.

  • Collaborative Intelligence
  • Having at the centre of any grouping, action, a developing understanding of how stress, trauma and fear disable our ability to communicate, collaborate and create intelligent, creative, resilient and very well informed humans.  Prioritising, understanding and learning how to recognise the virus of separation and learn to respond and maintain connection and co-operation through internal and external connective skills.
  • Developing awareness of essential balance.  Separation/Connection, Individual/Group, Rest/Work, Control/Release, Male/Female.
    - and how the favouring of/imbalance of one over the other creates consequences and loss of resource until balance is restored.
  • Solutions have to be as much about individual (empowerment - and all of what that means) as they are about group (empowerment) as a group (and its strength, connectedness and resilience) is made up of individuals.
  • Individual empowerment has to be able to identify and heal fear and separation (me v you, us v them) and rediscover a sense of shared WE.                                                                       (otherwise we just take the internalised me/you/us/them into any future versions of who WE is and isn’t just - which is what we have now - those that think they are right and impose that on everyone else)
  • Focusing on local/national/global collaboration.  
  • Implement only what can be demonstrated to be effective and aligned with individual, group and planetary needs.
  • Welcoming every individual to the planet, prioritising needs*, understanding the power and benefit and universal resourcing/investment in all of our welfare this will bring and that forgetting that nature provides resources for those that are born here (by pretending/claiming that some are more 'deserving' is a misunderstanding of nature/natural design, economically disastrous and essentially a confidence trick).

 

FOUNDATION

This is a project about transformation.  Human societies have taken material development and the refining of exchange, through the medium of money, to a stage where the distribution and intelligent management of resources, an essential component of any healthy planet has become so imbalanced and so normalised that we have virtually incorporated deep denial as a character trait within our collective psychology.
Despite so much of human focus being on the material, the outside of things, there have been very significant developments happening simultaneously on the inside and even though these have been much less visible, our understanding of human needs, development, potential and the social nature of how we function now reveal both the roots of all of our problems and also of our solutions.

The process of understanding all and any of this has required stepping back, breathing in, drawing on all resources that are inside and outside to develop a foundation that can be deeply relied on to re-integrate inner and outer fragments of ourselves that have been at the effect of the top down system we live in that imposes so many limitations on the development of the unique and precious potential of all individuals and the collaborative intelligence of the collective.

We are now establishing a foundation that is firmly based in evidence based psychology, study of needs, trauma and stress, individual safety and empowerment and as with all things in this project utilising all the collaborative intelligence and wisdom that is available in the world, even if the current leaders/managers are apparently unaware, as yet.

DEVELOPMENT

GINI starts with the premise that our individual and collective psychology is in need of an upgrade.
Many of our established attitudes and deeply ingrained habits of thinking and communicating are rooted in hundreds of years of influences, including political and religious manipulation, conflicts and divisions and more recently, powerful financial interests that invest heavily in shaping people's sense of what is important.
To transition form a 'normalised' paradigm of increasing separation and top down control to one of Individual empowerment and collaborative intelligence, we study, research and develop skills and practises to re-establish individual empowerment and collaborative confidence.
As our society continues to ever reach to the outside, to consumption, mind based strategies and it's deep addiction to polarity, we contend that the answers are inside; in finding comfort and fulfilment in our bodies, in integrating internal fragmentation and identifying and responding to all of our essential needs.
To value Being as much as we value Action.
