Robin Grille: Using Flow States for Positive Change

Robin Grille: Using Flow States for Positive Change
Why ‘finding flow’ is good for global governance

Psychologist Robin Grille has been theorising for some time that economic movements correlate directly with parenting and teaching trends. Right now, he says, the future is looking good.

There’s definitely a new kind of society emerging, far bigger than what the regular media would ever let you know.

He says people around the world are moving away from a top-down governance to a more community style model and believes it’s because we’ve also returned to a more needs based parenting style. He’s also linked it to an awareness of ‘flow’ and cites global research which shows that when children are engaged in activities where they find ‘flow,’ their academic performance and behaviour improve.

We don’t want to beat each other up when we have access to being who we are…I know places where they’ve started to use democratic schooling systems as a treatment for social violence.

Listen to Robin Grille explain the link between economics and parenting here.

Thank you for your post

The economy:

the problem with ‘sharing’ and ‘giving’ to the community is

1. you might not get your contribution reciprocated (as I didn’t when I studied for a T.E.F.L. qualification), or, the thing you allow another to borrow might be broken;

2. recently I decided to try and adapt to neoliberalism, as, otherwise, I can’t earn my own salary (although this hasn’t been that successful);

3. perhaps, rather than focussing on neoliberalism as the bete-noir, we should focus on money being this, simply.

4. I agree about what you say about punishment.
