What we're into right now

TRANSCEND CDM Transformation 

Transformation approaches that integrate work-life balance and whole systems to raise awareness, adaptive resilience, leadership and consciousness into flow states

In the 1930s psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi developed "the theory of flow".  Some years later, along with Dr Martin Seligman, he founded the now popular and widely known field of "positive psychology"—which focusses on increasing life happiness and productivity.  Today, although Positive Psychology and its teachings have become the "must-have" empowerment utility of the armchair social media therapist, life coach and professional leadership workshop facilitator, it is the theory of flow that is now coming of age into the arena of transpersonal development and adaptive survival mastery.  Flow here, is described as a state of natural concentration and engagement that is likened to a human form of a car in overdrive—one that has peaked in revs and acceleration to cruise otherwise unattainable agility and conscious states down an open highway of a life action.  The flow state exists beyond fight or flight anxiety. It arises from the person's engagement and total immersion, to a point where the brain is operating on autopilot.  The activity will always drive and achieve some form of success.  The joyful exhilaration felt, is directly connected as a motivation coming from within.  The result of that success and the act of getting into the state of flow arouses and heightens overall conscious awareness.

These factors haven't always been intrinsically linked to an emerging field of psychology favoured by US military in performance training and leadership.  Many will recognise these concepts have a home in Spiritual philosophies and practices towards enlightened Self-realization.   Particularly, the mystics including Buddhist and Hindu monks—who spend years evolving through disciplined meditation and kundalini yogic practices—have long been the target of scientific observation for their often seeming miraculous capabilities developed out of Spiritual Practice.  Traditional practitioners and shamans around the world have also been studied in a similar manner, to discover their secrets of advanced abilities, their "sacred power".  But it has fallen to our current times, where Sustainability and climate extinction threats have brought home to contemporary society how far we have come in technology and comforts for living.  At the same time how much we, the people have lost in our intuitive capability, adaptive traits and general wellness that is necessary for our species survival.  These days have pressed urgency and human consciousness expansion into the hands of scientific discovery for measurement and legitimacy.  At this consilience point, traditional healers and Spiritual emissaries are seeing held sacred knowledge rebranded.  A new coat of explanatory paint is given by neuropsychologists and physicists alike, in well heeled Ted Talks around the world.  For pioneers and caretakers of Sacred ways such as Tobassa—who are working with "whole systems" integration—the rise of consciousness raising interest comes as a relief.  It provides means and impetus to increase the transformation empowerment impact to those who would normally have excluded anything considered alternative.  

In 1993, Tobassa founded a "whole lifestyles" Empowerment centre in Australia with the purpose and intention of integrating professional learning development with Arts, Culture, Indigenous and Complimentary Alternative Medicine (CAM) and Philosophies approaches.  In the following years, connecting with Cultures, groups and individuals around the world to eventually evolve the Conscious Flow model from 2008.  TRANSCEND Consilience Dimension Model (CDM) is the signature integrated "whole systems" breakthrough transformation framework.  It culminates this life passage of developmental experience, consciousness abilities and contemporary research knowledge to facilitate adaptive resilience and flow living with conscious intuitive awareness.   

Social Enterprise

Tobassa and MyFlow Eco putting people and environment ahead of profit

Tobassa Limited was incorporated for the purpose of operating and supporting the Social Enterprise, Cooperative and Charitable Trust.  That is, Tobassa is a profit making company that benefactors charitable trusts and not for profit ventures—making it the "Sustainability" business.  The question is often asked: is a Social Enterprise incorporated as a private "for profit" company or a "non profit" entity?  The answer is "both, but only one" and a little complex in its legal structure due to outdated laws.  Social enterprises and not for profits in New Zealand have been established for some time at very high standards of operation.  In reflecting the growth and success of this very worthwhile sector, some common major issues have been identified. These are:

  • Current individual social enterprises remain typically isolated and lack connectivity.

  • Knowledge held and resources available to the operators have low visibility in the general community development space.

  • Public awareness and social enterprise profiling are also under-communicated and sporadically promoted.

  • Potential for production and operations efficiency, capability and capacity development exists where governance, market and sector representation are found.

 

Working solidly towards solutions in this emerging growth sector, are entities such as government sponsored Akina Foundation.  Founder of Conscious Flow collaboration, Tobassa is also well positioned to add high impact and profit value necessary for business regeneration, after two decades of sustainable development and entrepreneurship support.  Tobassa’s economic transformation has included fair trade artisans and agricultural producers internationally, who rely heavily on building self resilient sustainability while receiving economic recovery aid.

The need for company law reforms to enable the function of Social Enterprises "for impact" —allowing both profit dividends and fundraising, not for profit activities—is high.  General economy is rapidly moving away from the pure financial driver of the Capitalist profit entity.  Sustainability is the key to resilient adaptive culture in rapidly changing times, and the Social Enterprise model allows for sustainability indicators of profit, social impact and environmental care and due diligence.  In the meantime, ethical operators such as Tobassa will find ways to operate with the Sustainability and Social Responsibility blueprint within existing constraints.  This often means multiple identities or brands incorporated for profit and non profit activities.
