Deep Work Roots:
Deep Work is an idea that comes from the book the Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World written by Cal Newport.
Listen to the audiobook:
“Let your mind become a lens, thanks to the converging rays of attention; let your soul be all intent on whatever it is that is established in your mind as a dominant, wholly absorbing idea.” -Antonin-Dalmace Sertillanges
Organic Intelligence Roots:
Organic Intelligence was developed by Steve Hoskinson which integrates complexity science, Somatic Experiencing, the work of Milton Erickson, Carl Jung, polyvagal theory, aikido, deep ecology, play, and the fractal nature of body & mind. To learn more listen to Steve’s podcast: The End of Trauma.
