Catalyst Lab

Facilitating personal, community and global healing and well-being

What is Catalyst Lab?

Catalyst Lab is a “collaboratory” – a global “collaborative laboratory” for practice and experimentation at the intersection of personal and planetary transformation. It’s a community of practice, rather than a course or training.


We are called to come together in community to deepen our capacity to create connection, heal polarization, and facilitate life-enriching transformation in ourselves, in our communities, and in the world.


In Catalyst Lab we embody a range of practices for facilitating individual and collective well-being, including:

• Community Building and Microsolidarity
• Authentic Relating
• Conscious Engagement with Power and Privilege
• Internal Family Systems and Trauma-Informed Healing
• Nonviolent Communication
• Conflict Facilitation and Restorative Justice
• Self-Organizing and Reinventing Organizations
• Collaborative Governance and Decision-Making
• Cooperative Economics

Enhancing Your Existing Community

If you have people you are already collaborating or in community with, and for whom Catalyst Lab’s purpose also resonates, we invite you to extend an invitation to at least 1-2 of them to join Catalyst Lab with you, so that Catalyst Lab can complement and enhance your existing community and work.
