Cultivating the Holistic Worldview & Practice
An applied awareness programme for personal empowerment in a world in fundamental transition.
The programme is grounded in well-researched, albeit emergent, applied holistic science, complexity theory, and quantum neuroscience.
Participation will help unlock your innate capacity to take the quantum leap to the critical ‘process’ perspective – enabling better navigation of the super-wicked ‘edge of chaos’ problems-spaces as we enter the ‘Great Transition’.

Course created and led by Dr Claudius van Wyk, Founder and Chair of the Holos Earth Project:
“This offering is a synthesis of my life experience working with complexity approaches to address whole-dynamical system complex issues. At its essence will be creating the shared space to take the quantum leap in self-transcendent perspective and practice to true holism – beyond intellectualism. We will explore and endeavour a compassionate embrace of the ‘is-ness’ of the human evolutionary trajectory and allow the deeper purposeful nature of ‘Being’ itself to inform our vision of possibility.”Dr Claudius van Wyk
Introducing holistic science – we will examine dynamical whole systems (organisations, communities, societies, ecosystems, etc.), exploring At De Lange’s 7 enabling conditions for dynamic organisation vitality
Session 1 – Sunday 13th March 2022:
Introduction to the perspective of the original author of holism, Jan Christian Smuts, describing a hierarchy of creative evolution:
- Quantum underworld
- Material manifestation
- Living systems emergence
- Responsive awareness
- Human personality
- Social organisation
- Value creation
Session 2 – Sunday 20th March 2022:
Introduction to physicist At de Lange’s seven essentialities for living system vitality:
Introducing complexity theory we will offer a seven-phase process – how to apply ‘Complex Human Adaptive Intelligence’ – working with dynamical whole systems (developed by The Evolutionary Transformations Group).
Session 3 – Sunday 27th March 2022:
We re-examine VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) and identify the core indicative features of complex dynamical systems. We introduce the EMK methodology of (a) the multidimensionality of the problem-space, (b) creating an enabling environment, and (c) entering the field of possibilities.
Session 4 – Sunday 03 April 2022:
We examine the nature of a complex problem-space and how to embrace it – introduction to Snowden’s differentiation between ‘simple’, ‘complicated’, ‘complex’ and ‘chaotic’ situations.
Session 5 – Sunday
24th April 2022 8th May 2022:
Personal emotional positioning in respect of the complex problem-space – addressing the impact of emotional attitudinal stances:
- Frustration and anger
- Anxiety and fear
- Loss and deprivation
- Joyful engagement
Session 6 – Sunday
1st May 2022 15th May 2022:
We examine values stance, as the core organising criteria for focus, to addressing the problem-space in nine archetypes
- Systems analyst
In our exploration of Quantum Neuroscience relevant NLP principles will be offered located in a quantum perspective as researched with neurosurgeon Ian Weinberg (Quantum Determinism).
- Learning about and enhancing perception
- Managing emotions to reflow energy and motivation
- Learning how to escape the trap of inhibiting language
- How to establish compelling outcomes
- Learning how to reprogramme past inhibiting experiences
- Practicing exquisite attendance

Session 8 – Sunday
15th May 2022 29th May 2022:
Transforming ‘emotions’ into ‘energy seeking purpose’ – modifying Rachel Jack’s 4 responses – managing emotions to reflow energy and motivation
Session 9 – Sunday
