Wisdom Dialogue Invitation
Exploring the mind of evolution as ourselves…
My friends :-) —
While my writings on this platform more often than not wax towards the familiar and the personal in tone, this particular offering I make explicitly in the spirit of friendship.
Many of you (of today’s subscribers) are familiar with the rather Odyssean journey I have undertaken since the deep winter of 2019. This has wrought much refinement of my being, my attentions, my resilience, and my capacities.
The work I find today in hand runs both to the interior nurturing and stewardship of those gifts, as well as to bringing those rewards forward in service to the world.
It is the latter with which I am seeking your support today.
The following is the text of an invitational letter I would like to see find its way into wide circulation among the right audiences such that the capacities of my counsel might find their way into the service of those actors who live at the intersection of cultivating value for a life-affirming future and the evolutionary tensions presented by our past and current state.
I do hope you will appreciate the offering, and if you find it may serve you, I look forward to working together. Beyond that I hope you will share it throughout your networks that this work, finally refined in the fires of intense suffering might find its way as precious gems to light our way forward together.
Hello fellow traveler, hello my friend,
My name is Kabir Kadre, and I am working to nurture a world beyond careless destruction; a planetary people aspiring to service, abundance, and beauty for all life; a graceful transformation from one stage of our collective human evolution to the next.
Do you, like me, feel a tension between your clear sense of aspiration and real, sufficient capacities and the resistance of systemic, structural, and socio-economic inertia we must overcome to “turn the world?”
How do we energize the deep soul strength and wise insight that can help to open the egg of our precipitous potential today?
I’m reaching out to invite collaboration in strengthening the network of wisdom, intelligence, and lovingkindness that will make this possible.
Recognizing the enormity of our small earth and the depth and breadth of struggle, how do we raise ourselves and our hopes beyond simple success in personal terms and rise to this evolutionary occasion?
My response in these contexts is to act in the capacity of Wisdom Council. These are 60 minute sessions, akin to transformational coaching. I facilitate the stage upon which your own indigenous intelligence, your deeper inner wisdom, comes more clearly into view and more fully into expression.
Meeting the challenges of the world today, means acting skillfully in the context of the poly-crisis (multiple hyperobjects in extreme states of decay, i.e. environmental degradation, wealth disparities, the Social and AI Dilemmas, etc.), as well as in the context of the meta-crisis (the evolutionary tension placed upon prevailing worldviews that must shift, grow, and adapt to the ongoing developmental change of the biosphere, noosphere, and beyond.)
To accomplish this is not an insignificant task, we must access tremendous vulnerability, willingness, and creativity.
In the words of the poet Rumi:
“You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.”
In simple terms, this means awakening to the gift of Being Human, grounding ourselves in the long arc of a Soul’s Journey, and participating as willing agents in the composting decay of the old world, showing up in love, care, and stewardship for the new.
I am grateful for the opportunity to do this work, but more profoundly so for the educational and collaborative opportunities that have made it possible. Wisdom Dialogues are a cocreative process that use the leveraged moment of personal challenge to generate novel wealth and well-being for the world beyond the moment…
Here are a few things that others have had to share about this work…

“Deeply reflective, perpetually positive, genuinely caring with an eye always for what is healing, just and fair. … it is his capacity for listening that provides a true, sure pathway to the powerful self knowing that liberates those he coaches and counsels so ably.”

Won’t you join us? Follow the scheduling link below to arrange a 20-30 minute discovery dialogue to learn how we may engage this work together.
Wisdom Counsel embodies the same challenge to the status quo that we invite. These engagements are in the spirit of Gift Economies. Opportunity for reciprocal and “pay-it-forward” support will be provided.
"if you are coming to help me, you are wasting your time.
But if you are coming because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together."
