We've put together a diverse offering of engagements for our program alumni starting this fall  to deepen your understanding of the Human Venture meta framework. These sessions will introduce you to new explorations in the meta framework, provide insightful interpretations of historical and current events, create space to discuss practical applications of this work and expose you to helpful books and resources.

We're excited to continue to offer a place to discuss how we navigate and prepare for the challenges facing us as individuals, communities, institutions, a society and a species. We have much work to do and we sincerely hope you'll join us. To inquire more about any of these opportunities contact us

Error Inquiry Program

We need to learn as much as we can about how to identify sources of ignorance and error in thought, learning and action, and the disciplined effort required to control and move beyond them. The combined record of human striving achievement and failure, across cultures, fields of endeavor and periods of history is our source.

While the nature and significance of ignorance has been mapped to some degree in the meta framework, error has not received as much attention. Error is a complex construct that Ken hasn't been prepared to take on – until recently. This online program will focus on the meaning and significance of error with five objectives:

  • Map the dynamics of error, filling in a gap in the MFW
  • Develop a deeper understanding of types & levels errors, why they occur and what it takes to keep from repeating them again & again
  • Foster insights into structural ignorance & what it takes for adaptive reconstruction
  • Illustrate the process of concept mapping
  • Support a practical interest in observing and learning from one’s own errors & the errors of others

This program will include monthly two hour online sessions, October – April and a 1 day get-together in May to share maps, writing and reflections.

Online Sessions: 6:30 – 8:30 pm MST on Oct. 8, Nov. 12, Jan. 14, Feb. 11, Mar. 10, Apr. 14
In-Person Session: May 23 & 24 at Kim's place outside Cochrane

Cost: $575 + GST Open to all alumni of LE, LC, HVL programming.

Creating visualizations for concepts is no easy task but one that we need more people need to be engaged with. Join Ken in a monthly session to explore how the maps came to be and what was drawn on to create them. These sessions will be great for those new to the Human Venture meta framework as well as more experienced.  

Online Sessions: 7:00 – 8:30 pm MST Oct. 15, Nov. 26, Dec. 17, Jan. 28, Feb. 18, Mar. 24, Apr. 28 and May 19.

The Meta Framework at Work

Join us! We're always accepting new participants! It's an open learning circle.

Join Nat Muyres and Blythe Butler for an opportunity to explore and support real-time integration of the meta-framework in organizational settings. Regardless of industry or sector, we can all draw on our individual experiences as well as case studies to explore meta-framework concepts. These sessions are meant to provide an opportunity for alumni to contribute their personal experience in support of meta-framework integration and adaptive capacity development while drawing on the larger human story. Pre-reading and additional information to be shared in September before or at the first session.
