Systemic thinking looks at the big picture – at how the parts of a system relate. A healthy system contains parts that are connected, that have balance, order and belonging.  When this happens the system can relax and be well-functioning.

Our bodies are systems. Our families. Our communities. Our country is a system.

Disorders can be healed with a healthy bond. Joham Hari says, “The opposite of addiction is connection. Addiction is not a substance disorder, it’s a social disorder”. A systemic disorder.

So when parts relate to each other with compassion and connection, something new and whole can arise – even squares from circles!

What would it look like if we would more frequently included the excluded, and relate to each other with connected compassion?
