The Gladstone Creative Community Lab
artful experiments in co-creating the future
Collaborators Helen Lowe and Stephen Podry invite you to co-create a compassionate hospice for our old paradigm, while nurturing seeds for a New Earth culture.
It is increasingly difficult to deny that our aging structures of power and governance are divisive and not in harmony with life's wholeness. The Gladstone is a community laboratory where we support each other to discover and practice ways of being human that are meaningful, enjoyable, and mutually generative.
Our aim is to inspire and co-create generous, life-giving communities. Using contemplative and expressive arts of all kinds, our work is dedicated to nurturing the wholeness of being alive...and having a good time doing it!
Our time, energy, skills, and financial resources are put in service of this aim, without a transactional expectation of a “return on our investment.”
If you value our efforts to co-create a joyful and viable future, consider making a financial gift that aligns with your heart and circumstances.
Stephen Podry has taught and facilitated arts-based experiences for over 20 years, including 14 years directing literacy and parenting programs for incarcerated mothers. A musician, writer, and practitioner of shamanic arts, he offers a wide range of creative modalities for deepening the experience of being alive, including 2RS, a participatory divination process.
Helen Lowe inspires and assists people to enrich their sense of belonging—to themselves, to others, and to the natural world. She is currently working to publish a deck of oracle cards and an accompanying book that express Sacred Geometry in Human Belonging, based on insights that arose from her contemplative relationship with the Enneagram.
