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 PHILOSOPHY

There is a new functional paradigm emerging in the worlds of business, design, development and construction. At its centre are people, creativity, the human spirit and deep collaboration within the living systems we are part of.

We believe 21st Century challenges give us opportunity to re-configure ourselves, in a transformation from fragmentation and separation, to wholeness. From linear production line, to regenerative co-creation.

This is the 'new we' - an ambitious vision for renewing full reciprocity within our human-nature partnership. It's a call for radically integral and potent ways of working together.

It’s a mighty big challenge to ‘walk the talk’ of ‘wholeness’. How do we do that while we’re ‘on the job’ within our complex development projects and processes, often within limited time and financial resources? How do we elevate our aspirations from doing 'good' to doing 'magic'?

These questions are at the heart of CABAL's practice and ongoing inquiry.

CABAL offers a connective and co-creative space for this research and learning, pragmatic demonstration, and storytelling in action. We explore a unique combination of facilitation, action research, visual arts, healing arts, design and construction, entrepreneurship and education.

We are dedicated to manifesting the highest ideals for wellbeing - whole people, whole place, whole world. Regenerative development and design processes within communities and our landscapes, become a vessel for this trans-cultural innovation.

The motivation for CABAL's approach has grown out of a frustration at seeing (industrialist) mechanistic management systems employed for social, cultural and ecological outcomes in community and place- sourced projects. Linear, reductive design methodologies are insufficient in this dynamic, living context.

Regenerative development to us is a way of being. It is why and how we are alive, as well as something we 'do'. It's fresh ways of seeing this deeper journey of thinking, being, working and healing, together.
