What I call a “butterfly culture” is one that is regenerative and life-affirming, in "right relationship" and harmonious abundance with all beings in a culture for the well-being of all.
This is a world that reflects our highest aspirations, our deepest desires, and our most life-giving dreams.
Connections, cross-pollination, and cooperation between and among imaginal cells are critical for creating a new and different life, both with the butterfly and in our human cultural lives/experience.
Since we create our lives and experience through our stories and world views, an important purpose of the Butterfly Culture Project is to give us new perspectives about the cultural stories we have been living by and see other possibilities.
There are innumerable examples springing up of this socio-economic cultural transformation that is creating new ways of living and working together. The people, projects, and activities highlighted in these “Signs of the Emerging Cultural Butterfly” are examples of this new culture being created, incubated, and birthed.
If you know of other examples, please send them to me! I welcome discovering, connecting and cross-pollinating them to further this process of creating the world we all want to live in.
