The quality of forming a unified whole



unity, aloha, love

We strive to advance whole-systems solutions by uniting Indigenous Wisdom + Earth Systems Science.
We bring people together to create fields of coherent, collective intelligence and unified action, to positively impact systems at scale, solving some of the most complex issues of our time - for the good all LIFE ON EARTH.
Our methodologies and measurements for success are driven as much by the way we operate as by the outcomes we seek. 

our mission

why coherence?


WHEN WE'RE ALIGNED, MIRACLES HAPPEN - We offer a new structure of accessing unlimited thinking about what is possible, toward a thriving and peaceful planet. We assemble teams of cutting-edge and traditional solutionaries to generate and carry out strategies for healthy ecosystems. 

The alchemy of radical collaboration across boundaries provides entry to realms of intelligence that are inaccessible in ordinary strategy sessions. By cultivating a respectful environment of undefended presence and deep listening, we access collective genius, raise our consciousness beyond where thinking has gone before, and co-create new ways forward. 


fields of coherent collective intelligence.

Architecting Systemic Global Change

Earth Forest Collaboratory 

Securing the permanent protection of all remaining Primary Forests on Earth

As a global community we face multiple accelerating, existential crises - climate change, species extinction, freshwater pollution, pandemics and indigenous genocide. At the center of these crises are Primary Forests - natural forests untouched by destructive human activities. The Earth Forest Collaboratory's mission is to secure the permanent protection of all remaining Primary Forests on Earth.


Our whole-systems change model unites unlikely allies to align action at scale, expand Indigenous forest projects, adds research-backed mechanisms for financial sustainability and reforms policy and subsidies affecting forest health at national and international levels.

The Earth Forest Collaboratory is a partnership between Griffith University, Wild Heritage, and Coherence Lab.

Indigenous Knowledge

Coherence Lab was honored to host and support Ilarion (Kuuyux) Merculieff’s vision for 13 Indigenous Wisdom Weavers from tribes around the world to gather for four days on Kaua`i to co-create a message for humankind. Hundreds of community members gathered over the four-day event for sunrise ceremonies, shared traditions, teachings and communication.

Legendary Legacies

Our work has expanded to include work with entrepreneurs and next-generation heirs looking to shape their legacies for global and personal responsibility. Through our events and private coaching we work with individuals and families to redefine wealth and prosperity toward social change. In 2018 we worked with heirs of small and large fortunes and multi-billion dollar family... 

Solutions Lab

A means to build a “community of innovators for sustainability” with students, traditional practitioners, educational institutions, allies in business, government, non-profit, and community organizations. By bringing together diverse and committed teams, we hope to systematically address Kaua’i’s priority challenges to a sustainable future at the root-cause or systemic level.
