Cosmos is a Greek word for the order of the universe. In a way, it is the opposite of chaos. It implies the deep interconnectedness of all things. It conveys awe for the intricate and subtle way in which the universe is put together.

ElementalTM means seeking:

·       the core of a relationship or idea, stripping away the excess to reveal the smallest representative unit that truly matters

·       the inherent commonality between things that appear different on the surface

·       the complexity of simple structures and the simplicity of complex patterns

As humans, we have always embraced nature for inspiration, healing, and renewal.

Welcome to Velvet Frame

Welcome to Velvet Frame.

We instinctively seek an intimacy with nature that affirms our place in the world and connects us to other living beings. But the more we succeed in advancing our human aspirations and ideals, the less we defer to nature for guidance, purpose, and belonging.

Velvet Frame™ looks to natural ecosystems to understand and steward change. We believe in reviving our forgotten ecological identity™.

When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.

Nurture relationships to evolve from transactional to transformational.

Words matter. Good communication starts with an intention to reach people where they are through language that is socially and culturally native to them.

Simple is different from essential.
Use your privilege to create a space for courageous conversations and higher levels of play.

Draw the circle wider.

Ecological Principles for Collective Action TM

Principles for Collective ActionTM

Ecological Principles for Collective ActionTM (EPCA) is an interdisciplinary framework for mapping collective action problems across complex systems that accounts for emerging identities and shifting demographics.

The framework adapts the functions and flows of natural ecosystems to generate data-driven models for leadership and capacity building that can objectively “weigh” values and evaluate processes for decision making.

EPCA blends the insights of social and environmental ethics to enable changemakers to articulate vision and values, and frame narratives for change within organizations and institutions.
