Cabal is my word for a way of working together. It is an wholistic space for collaboration with each other and the life streams we are part of. The Cabal ethos rests in the subtle arts of relatedness. For over 20 years, this philosophy has guided my approach to art, design and construction, within very diverse project teams, contexts and mediums.

This ‘deep collaboration’ is an art form of communication and interdependency as we sculpt, weave, design and construct processes for restorative built environments. I treat each creative project is an opportunity to explore with others, finding simple practical tools and processes that we can put into action to help realise our ideals for transformation and regeneration in our communities. Cabal

asks, “what is needed here?” “What are the optimum conditions for wholistic

success?”

Cabal is a call to the nourishment of love, life and the restoring of beauty.

CABAL'S LIVING PROCESS 2

kinship.  deep beauty.  potent co-creation.

 

CABAL respond's to the call for a deeply pragmatic creativity that moves us toward regenerating our people and places.  

LIVING PROCESS is an holistic practice at the core of our work, informing development, design and construction / implementation processes that are grounded in whole living systems thinking.

We acknowledge that people, land and waters are living, and inseparable. We are helping retrieve ancient technologies and revealing new ways of working, together, to nourish mauri, the regenerative life principle, at every level.

We bring a ‘whole person, whole place’ approach to this. We call it 'deep collaboration' because this approach goes below surface treatment. CABAL is about engaging the whole of our living nature - physical and functional dimensions of people and place, as well as mental, emotional and spiritual levels of reality, actively weaving sensory experience and reason, within the individuals and the collective - human and more-than-human.

As integration facilitators, we tend the quality of relationships within project communities. We nourish the spaces in-between - where the magic lives. Our facilitation style is generous, playful and precise. We help activate and tend the heart and soul of the co-creative process.

In a 'business as usual' approach, we often hear the words 'consultation', ‘participation’ and ‘integration’ to describe the fact of multiple participants in a design processes. But typically, the procurement and delivery of development projects is still over-subscribed to the inefficiency of silo'd, linear and reductive processes.

Surprisingly, the craft of facilitation and the inner work of personal development, which are powerfully harnessed in other high performance sectors, are rarely explicitly engaged in the arena of development and design. That is changing, as it becomes more and more clear that to elevate outcomes across all domains, we are all called to consciously nurture whole and healthy relationships - integrating, aligning, growing efficiency, beauty and transformational creativity throughout the project journey.
