(Re)imagining the future of business with (re)lational intelligence

The meta-crisis is not only the biggest threat to our future, it is also our greatest opportunity for growth and transformation.

The grim prognosis for life on this planet is the

consequence of a few centuries of forgetting what traditional societies knew."
-Noam Chomsky

Ryan (Ra) James

Ryan (Ra for short), is a regenerative systems change trailblazer shifting business worldview and mindset to embody the changes that the future is requiring of us by transcending the trapped conditionings of business-as-usual altogether. He brings together various disciplines including linguistics, animism & kinship, ecological economics, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and traditional Indigenous knowledge systems to orient us with post-anthropocentric approaches to systems change, business and law.

Over the last 14 years, Ryan has traveled and worked in over fifty-five countries on six continents. While on this journey, he was (and still is) mentored by various elders and cultural guardians of Original Peoples who shared with him their wisdom of seeing and being in the world. His current work focuses on integrating the intersectional, creating the purposeful and simplifying the complexities of creating purposeful, evolutionary, relational, regenerative and pluriversal futures.

He speaks & works worldwide with individuals, businesses, non-profits, educational institutions and governments to revitalize a worldview of inter-being while designing innovative & adaptive systems rooted in pragmatic solutions for applied action.

Featured TEDx Talk

Ryan has spoken with dozens of businesses, educational institutions and summits focusing on integrating transformational ancestral wisdom into our modern contexts to prepare and transform businesses into the next paradigm of future-ready leadership. 

He illuminates the unseen parts of our individual and collective mindsets that continue to create compartmentalized systems of degeneration in the effort to rebalance human life with Earth. He does this through simplifying complex topics, sharing about regenerative and cultural life-ways, bringing coherence into our relationships and reverse engineering a future worth living in.

My core insight:

Transformative business models of value arise from the synergy of fearless imagination, relational intelligence, cultural wisdom, and radical creativity.

The Three-Tiered Approach

Restoring an Interconnected Worldview + relational intelligence
Reimagining organizational Cultures of Purpose + resilience
Regenerating Systems + building Adaptive Operations and strategy

  1. (re)Biz: a business-as-usual un/school that consists of evolutionary online offerings & emergent-creation-labs designed to equip all people with the worldview and skills to create regenerative and pluriversal post-growth futures. It is for those who want to (re)define business-as-usual from its deepest roots.

  3. Sixth Sun Immersions: an in-person offering that creates immersive experiences at the intersection point of cultural cosmovision, ancestral wisdom, integrated plant medicine ceremonies and regenerative systems change praxis. These immersions are incredible opportunities to be in the presence of elders and cultural guardians to experience ancestral wisdom, transformational ceremonies and to learn how to embody the values required to live in harmony with Earth.
