Tools for the Regenerative Renaissance, the Autopia Token and Love Without Limits

Dear friends,

Happy Solstice (for next week)! Last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the stunning and stirring Glastonbury Tor on my way to a retreat:

Tools for the Regenerative Renaissance

I am delighted to say that the proposal from Phoebe and me (supported by Rieki) for 2.64m Seeds (approx $52,000) to run the Tools for the Regenerative Renaissance six-week, better-than-free course was passed by the SEEDS community! Due to a slight delay with the proposal, the course will now start on the new moon in February and take place on consecutive Wednesdays (10 Feb, 17 Feb, 24 Feb, 3 Mar, 10 Mar, 17 Mar), 6pm UK time/7pm CET.

Applications are now open. Successful applicants pay a registration fee in Seeds (S500/1500/3000 low income/standard/abundant, approx $10/30/60). Those who complete all assignments receive a reward of 15,000 Seeds (approx $300, ~$50/session) at the end of the course!

Autopia Token

The Autopia Token (AUT) is a cryptoeconomic experiment in community and co-creation. I am minting 10,000 AUT, and airdropping 51% to subscribers of my newsletter who register via this form by 11.59pm on Winter Solstice, 21st December 2020, in proportion to the number of links clicked in past newsletters (people registering who have never clicked a link will be included as if they had clicked one link).

You can now check how many tokens you're in line to receive at (updated daily).

Intro to Crypto & DeFi: last chance for now

Following two sold out courses and several five star reviews, I’m teaching another Introduction to Crypto & DeFi course in January, which is already one-third full and will probably be the last one for a while.

Crypto investing: a very short introduction

Having received a number of similar questions, I created a page on my site Crypto investing: a very short introduction which, amongst other products, features my new strategy on ICONOMI, Metastrategy.

Seeking talented facilitators

The Psychedelic Society is seeking more talented facilitators to expand its range of online offerings. If you have a course or event that fits with our multidisciplinary programme, get in touch!


Since last time, I’ve shared 35 articles to my knowledgegraph. Some highlights:

Frank Mondeose

And the rest…

  • I spoke to the Cambridge Psychedelic Society on the topic Psychedelics and the Living Planet. Check out my notes here

  • I wrote An Introduction to Platform Co-ops as my essay for part 1 of the Platform Co-ops Now! course

  • I talked to Bennet Zelner about the Pollination Approach, an approach to psychedelic wellness based on locally and co-operatively owned and run wellness centers. Watch the replay

  • I’ll be speaking to Amisha Ghadiali, host of the The Future Is Beautiful podcast, about her new book Intuition on Sunday 10th January

Monthly news review videocall for paying subscribers

I run a monthly news review videocall for paying subscribers of this newsletter, where I offer deeper commentary and analysis on content I’ve shared to my knowledgegraph and other items mentioned here.

The next call will take place on Sunday 20th December, 6pm UK time, with a link sent to paying subscribers earlier that week, and a recording sent afterwards.

The investment I ask for is $10/month (or $100/year), with the option of a $300/year Founding Member plan if you particularly appreciate my work and would like the option of being featured in this newsletter.

Until next time, with love,
