Hi, I'm Henry

Welcome & pleasure to connect.

My life's mission is to maximize Thriving. That includes individuals, families, organizations, and ecosystems.

Big topic, I know. That's why I have a 50 Year Master Plan.

My writing explores the science, technology, business, and spirituality of Thriving. I offer my thoughts and learnings with an open palm, and if you are inspired, perhaps we can discuss over a bowl of tea.

I publish my longer writing here and I also write a shorter weekly newsletter called Thriving Thursdays. Every week I send synthesized sensemaking in physical, intellectual, emotional, and relational arenas. Plus a lot of beautiful art.

How can I support your Thriving?

The primary reasons for this site is to connect with those on the path to Thriving.

I write about conceptual tools like dreamscaping and conscious conception frameworks. I also write about more philosophical topics like Life over God and axioms of abortion. And I certainly have a lot to think about for Thriving.

More than anything, I'm writing for you. I seek to empower you on your journey. And in doing so, curate the awareness to support others as well.

If you have questions or comments, reach out. Where I have knowledge and capacity, I'll offer my insights. Where you have knowledge or perspective to share, I warmly welcome your input.

It's an honor to walk this path together.

🙏🏼    Ichi-go ichi-e  🙏🏼
