Creating an Emotionally Intelligent Future

Our Agenda
Our agenda is driven by environmental change

There is no longer any doubt that our global climate is changing, or that the behaviour of the human race over the last 100 years has had a major impact in accelerating this change. Many people still fail to acknowledge that we are in fact one with our environment consequently denying the very breath in their lungs. Certainly the United nations is clear about the level of change required.

Keeping to the preferred target of 1.5C above pre-industrial levels will mean "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society".


Our Solution for Driving Change
Transforming Relationships

To enable rapid transformation and change we are establishing a multi faceted interactive web based relationship coaching resource based on a holistic approach to healthy ageing covering the complete human life cycle of ;

  1. Starting well
  2. Living well
  3. Ageing well
  4. Dying well

Our aim is to empower Governmental Agencies, NGO’s, Businesses and Individuals with the confidence, self esteem, motivation and emotional resilience to meet challenges driven by climate change for the remainder of this century.
Extensive evidence shows that having good-quality relationships can help us to live longer and happier lives with fewer mental health problems. These relationships include the one we have with our planet.

Ever wanted to rewind life because you felt that you missed an opportunity to say exactly what you felt in a particular moment? That’s because we sometimes struggle to be fully present to our lives. This is the key to finding your inner voice... you know.... the voice that’s really aching to tell it how it is... how you see things... but for some reason never gets fully expressed... that voice!

A subject of your choice.

You can share anything you like... it could be something that is annoying, or niggling you, or maybe it’s a problem that you are struggling to overcome..., or maybe it was a moment that was really meaningful for you... a turning point, something exceedingly funny, or a dream fulfilled.
We are particularly interested in connecting different generations so whether you are young , of an older ( 50+ ) age group or somewhere in between what ever you wish to relate this is your opportunity to share it... .Tell Your Story!

Founded firmly on RESPECT for self and others, this service is completely confidential so please share and submit your experience without mentioning ANY names (including your own), dates or places. This also allows you to speak with complete FREEDOM. Failure to do so will result in rejection of your material.

Storytelling Style

Your story needs to be about a personal experience, something that has happened to you personally, not somebody else. It’s also needs to be told in the style of first person singular... e.g. I did this, or I did that, etc.

A Moment of Reflection

Emotional Intelligence in a Digital Age

What is emerging in the early part of the new century are millions of people seeking to fulfil their potential by leading happy and satisfying lives in an environment of what seems ever increasing challenges. We will need to connect with our emotional intelligence and resilience to accomplish our potential both as individuals and as a species. We will have to expand the sphere of acting as one species much further than ever before. In the 1990’s Daniel Golman among the first to use the phrase Emotional Intelligence published a book of the same name. Simultaneously Dr David Hawkins was publishing his book on consciousness Power v Force which measures the energy fields in our physical environment. Landmark Education had already been delivering their pioneering emotional intelligence training course for 20 years by then and over 2 million people, including the author, have already experienced the amazing breakthroughs in consciousness available through their training. In addition a plethora of authors from Neale Donald Walsh to Susan Jeffers, from Louise Hay to Gary Zukav and from James Redman to Eckart Tolle have covered the ground between self help and advanced spirituality providing a bedrock of learning for those seeking to fulfil their potential.

Khalid Abdullah's  experience of delivering coaching on a behaviour modification programme in Woodhill Prison in 2008 was the catalyst for creating a cradle to the end of life coaching system which utilises modern ICT to fulfil the function of coaching 1 to many thousands. Now, in the digital age we at Planet Village are seeking to create a mash up from these sources of learning and consciousness based on the experience of a new guru. The Crowd.  Recent times have seen the successful rise of crowd funding. What we are precipitating is the crowd as guru. Since the secrets of our future success lies within us, we have devised a methodology that harvests our collective experience as human beings, catalogues them in an intelligent database, provides a bit of guidance on manifesting powerful relationships and then makes it available to the wider community.  Some of these communities we are already currently working with using our collaborative approach.
