Why SoaNoia exists
SoaNoia was created in 2021 to respond to one key question:
How do we consciously and responsibly
transform our decisional and behavioural praxes ...
to lead responsible and caring systems of governance ...
in the service of an equitable & harmonious world ...
and the common good?
SoaNoia is based on the notion that metanoia (μετάνοια),
which is a conversation of the mind, spirit or heart,
occurs through eunoia (εὔνοιᾰ), which means beautiful thoughts or thinking;
and which, in turn, occurs through metanoia and so on, in a relational cycle.
Our philosophy espouses the idea that it is in our minds
that we dream & hope, imagine the possible in our lives,
and create & make sense of our lived experiences.
SoaNoia exists to support metanoia,
the transformation of human consciousness,
through eunoia, the practice of thinking consciously and beautifully,
so that we can embody the best version of our selves
in the creative and experiential art of living.
SoaNoia accompanies, guides and facilitates metanoia
through creative & collaborative experiences,
and eunoia through meaningful & inspiring conversations.
If you feel like starting a conversation with us
about our work, our services or how we could collaborate with each other, on an individual, collective and/or organisational transformative journey,
send us a message.
Let's start a conversation.
SoaNoia's mission is to collaborate with and offer assistance, support, coaching and guidance
to people, communities and organisations
whose goal is to embed Humanity
as part of an ethical solution in the co-creation
and care of a sustainable living world.
Our focus is on facilitating
the creative and collaborative emergence of awareness, transformation, development and practice
of consciousness for individual beings, collectives/communities and organisations.
Where Passion & Magic Collide
My name is Alexandra and I embody many facets of my being including
woman, daughter, sister, mother,
lover, beloved, friend, dreamer,
academic, scholar, teacher, lawyer,
writer, activist, idealist, coach, entrepreneur...
Mostly though, I am a conscious being experiencing a human life on this Earth.
I believe that we each have the oppportunity, free will and choice
to define what is the meaning, sense and purpose of our life,
what brings us bliss and a feeling of belonging.
I also believe we all have a responsibility to care for our selves,
each other (human & all Earth communities) and our Planet.
It is apparent that the extractive and mechanistic mother culture
that dominated humanity's history for centuries
is now showing its unsustainable, uncaring and unacceptable true colours.
In these days of turmoil
- ecological, climate, economic, social, political and global health -
human (mis)behaviour is being called and held to account.
That accountability starts with becoming consciously aware that our decisions,
however major or minor, have ramifications in and on the wider world.
In the face of fatalist and determinist statements such as
'This is the system, there is nothing we can do',
I ask myself:
'Who is the system?
Who created the system?'
We are. We did.
Our economic, political and social systems are our human creations.
Therefore, they are our human responsibility.
It is within our power to change and transform these systems
so they may serve the common good.
We have entered a global anthropocene age of responsibility.
Not only is humanity responsible for a great deal of ills
against human, other-than-human and wider ecological communities,
it also has the responsibility
- and the means -
to repair, restore, regenerate and respect our living world.
An evolution of the mind - at the individual, collective and organisational levels -
It is through an evolution of the mind (spirit)
anchored in an eco-logical and holistic mother culture
that we enable and empower ourselves to review and transform
our thought patterns, value systems, decisional and behavioural praxes.
I want to change the world - that part that is within Humanity's reach -
for the better.
I work and live for a better world in which Humanity can truly be
caring, loving, sustainable & eco-responsible.
I want us to change for the better - to become to best version of ourselves;
and to live in the best version of the world we can dream up.
This transformation is from within us - our inner individual and collective us.
This is why I created SoaNoia...
to add my drop to the ever widening ocean of co-creation.
