Transformations of Natural Foresight®

Reframe the human experience

Transformations of Natural Foresight is not a traditional training, and will be unlike any other TFS offering. There will be no slides or formal exercises, but instead the experience will evolve organically from the contributions of the diverse foresight professionals who attend. The lush and tranquil setting will provide a safe space to imagine, to be vulnerable, and to learn, unlearn, and relearn. Planned group excursions and meditation opportunities will balance genuine fun and connection with incredible personal metamorphosis.

The Wicked Opportunities® Podcast

Tackle Wicked Problems

The world is filled with Wicked Problems – incredibly complicated predicaments that don’t have simple solutions. However, the real problem isn’t our complex world, but rather our outdated mindsets. The way that we see the future directly impacts the actions that we take today, so a better world requires better visions. Join futurists Yvette Montero Salvatico and Frank Spencer each week as they use the Natural Foresight® Framework to reframe our Wicked Problems into the transformational ideas that they call Wicked Opportunities™.
