What is it?
The Art of Meaning is Social Learning that teaches Creative Reframing skills: the ability to turn your losses into gains, tragedy into triumph and life into art.

Why do we need it?
If you're climbing a ladder and it starts to slip and wobble, you have a problem.

If you've just fallen off a ladder, you have a predicament.

As human beings on planet earth, we've failed to solve our problems for so long now that we're in a serious predicament.

If we're honest with ourselves we know we've already fallen off the ladder.

The Art of Meaning teaches us how to face our global, local and personal predicaments creatively - to make art of our lives.

If you're falling backwards off a ladder you still have options, but you'd better get real creative, real fast!

The Art of Meaning teaches you how to respond to any and all of the predicaments life puts you in...artfully and creatively.

With response-ability and resilience.

With grace and beauty.

The Art of Meaning teaches you how to land well, when you've fallen off the lemony ladder of life.

To respond instinctively...aiming for a "tens across the board" Gymnastic dismount.

Even if means you end up saying "I broke my arm...but it could have been a lot worse."

I think least we can do for ourselves and the world, is not to add anymore of our own shit to all the shit we all have to deal with everyday.

If all we can manage to do is to respond to the shit that happens everyday with resilience and response-ability, with skill and grace and beauty...isn't that an authentic contribution to a more beautiful world?

I believe it is.
 
How it works.
The Art of Meaning is structured as a Social Learning Site where members can connect with each other, share their stories and support each other in responding to their life predicaments more creatively, dealing with their problems more artfully and living their lives more beautifully.

The site itself will be as simple to use and as familiar as facebook with all the functionality, but with none of the overwhelm, advertising or corporate interests.

Members will choose the type and level of elearning that suits them and go at their own pace with their learning, practice and skills development, choosing from true story case studies, Q&A podcasts & videos, livestream broadcasts and 1 to 1 Skype coaching. 

The Key Benefits.
  1. A positive, encouraging and supportive community
  2. The networked power of The Crowd working on your behalf
  3. Personal and Professional advice and guidance

1) A positive, encouraging and supportive community
helped Bea, Louis, Alexandra, Nick & Ryan to live their lives more beautifully. You can read some of their stories here:
You Are the Average of the 5 People You Spend the Most Time With

2) The networked power of "The Crowd" working on your behalf on crowdfunding sites like Patreon, social media, open source networks and literally millions of online forums, have helped millions of people to develop new skills and achieve their goals. A community of like minded people with common problems and common goals who are only too happy to help each other is one of the most powerful forms of support in existence.

3) Personal & Professional advice and guidance 
My own journey from ad agency director to Big Issue seller to one-legged existentialist stand-up beat poet to artful living student provides me with 15 years worth of humbling, hard earned, epic poetic tragicomic wisdom on turning loss into gain, tragedy into triumph and life into art.

What to do?
By becoming a patron of The Art of Meaning and you'll be helping me build, design and populate a support network with the potential to help all of us live the more beautiful life our heart knows is possible and by so doing cocreating the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible. 
  1. Check out the rewards on offer to patrons (top right) and choose the reward you want
  2. Check my funding goals (top left) for exact details of what your money will be used for
Once I reach my Initial Funding Goal, I'll set up and build out the Social Learning Membership Site and you'll receive password access along with whatever rewards you choose.

I invite you to join us on this epic poetic journey to a more beautiful world, travelling across the faraway (yet ever present;) lands...of living a more beautiful life.

If you've read this far thank you for taking the time. 

If The Art of Meaning isn't for you would you consider sharing it with a friend who might be into it? Thanks.

And to my long time friends, fans and family...thank you so much for all the support you've given me over the years. It's being deeply felt right now and it's allowed me to be in the fortunate position of finally being able realize my long held dream (do any of your remember Hero School back in 2012?) to create an online space for practicing creative living, authentic self expression and self actualization...for all the beautiful humans being.

Thank you. Hopefully I'll speak to you inside.

I'll leave you with my very favouritest quote of all times.

"Security is mostly a superstition. There is no security in nature...life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all."
Helen Keller 

All the best

Goals
$110 of $500 per creation
To Build the Foundations of The Art of Meaning i.e.
  • A social media style membership site with posts, comments, forums, profiles, networking and direct messaging
  • A comprehensive archive of text, audio and video learning based on the specific needs, desires, blocks, challenges and problems of the members

To create these foundations I'll need the following:
  1. Video Recording & Editing Software
  2. Screen Recording Software
  3. A Good Microphone
  4. Social Media Membership Site Software
  5. Fees for Outsourced Web, Technical & Admin Services
This will allow me to create a community support network & eLearning platform that is as familiar and easy to use as facebook, while being tailored for people who are consciously living more beautiful lives in order to help create a more beautiful world.

Thank you so much for your support
