"Experiencing violence and conflict all around us, it is quite easy to give in to despair and cynicism. There is also an alternate way - of stepping back to see afresh and begin to understand the big picture. For that, one has to move away from old patterns, our usual habits of looking at events and happenings through the prism of our limited understanding and prejudices. Paradoxically, we may need to look inward first to see the external world with new eyes. This book, One Wholesome World, makes that much-needed attempt. The authors make an honest and heartfelt plea to anchor ourselves in an inner zone of peace and harmony to see the interconnectedness of people and places. This book is a meditation on what we can do for renewal, how personal transformation can happen to alter the collective state of societies and nations. It is a book that we can use for a deeper understanding of the human instinct that binds us together, that makes us whole in a fragmented world." -- Anu Aga, Chairperson, Thermax Foundation and Teach For India; nominated member of the Rajya Sabha (the upper house of the Parliament of India). "We need new perspectives of who we are, and to understand how we are, deliberately or mindlessly, impacting each other and our one, shared world. Omkar and Arun Wakhlu's book is very timely. It advocates mindfulness, wholeness, interconnectedness. I hope that many people will take time off from the often mindless discourses on social and electronic media that are distracting us from listening to each other deeply and from listening to our own inner selves too, to read their wonderful book and become inspired by it." -- Arun Maira, author, Management Advisor, former Member, Planning Commission, India. "I have been blessed with over 40 years of action-learning experience with innovative approaches to organizational change and leadership development - mostly within and with large corporations based in North America and Europe. Though most of this design/transformation project work was considered successful from the standpoint of improving culture and business results, none has come close to realizing the potential described in One Wholesome World. It's fallen short of what's needed to co-create a truly 'wholesome world - a world we can all celebrate in our lifetime and be proud to hand over to our children. In One Wholesome World, the father/son Wakhlu team have beautifully illuminated key puzzle pieces that have been missing throughout most of the world of traditional organization and leadership development. I've become totally convinced that it is our destiny as humans to serve as co-evolutionaries - to consciously evolve ourselves and our human systems (e.g., organizations, cities) in ways that best serve the wellbeing of all life, for all time. I see One Wholesome World as a major contribution to accelerating this great turning." -- Bill Veltrop, co-founder PathFinders and Monterey Institute for Social Architecture, founder International Centre for Organization Design "This is not a book but a sermon on life. I am delighted that an entire generation of people who mean well for the planet will have an opportunity to be guided in their thoughts and actions by the wisdom that pops out of every page, every paragraph and sentence. From the part where the authors describe life as an interconnected dance of ideas to all the themes that the authors have delved into, you will be drawn into new thought processes that can enable you to view the present and future through a new lens and make us all rhythmic dancers in the infinite cosmos of the universe." -- Ganesh Natarajan, Chairman 5F World and Social Venture Partners Pune.

My design-centric practice was nicely reflected in these two aphorisms —
• ‘All organizations are perfectly designed — to get the results they get’
• ‘First we shape our structures — then our structures shape us’
Though most all of this design/transformation project work was considered successful from the standpoint of improving culture and business results, none has come close to realizing the potential described in ‘One Wholesome World.’ It’s fallen short of what’s needed to co-create a truly ‘wholesome world — a world we can all celebrate in our lifetime and be proud to hand over to our children.’
In One Wholesome World, the father/son Wakhlu team have beautifully illuminated key puzzle pieces that have been missing throughout most of the world of traditional organization and leadership development.
I’ve become totally convinced that it is our destiny as humans to serve as co-evolutionaries — to consciously evolve our selves and our human systems (e.g., organizations, cities) in ways that best serve the wellbeing of all life, for all time.
I’m convinced that now is the time to act — to act boldly in ways that best support the fundamental shift in mindset that is required throughout our human systems.
I see One Wholesome World as a major contribution to accelerating this ‘great turning.’
10 Things I REALLY Liked About One Wholesome World
1. It creatively addresses what I consider to be the most important and illusive challenge facing humanity at this moment in our evolutionary journey —the scarcity/fear-based mindset so dominant throughout the organizations that define our ‘developed’ world
2. I found the book a pleasure to read. I was pulled through by the informal, respectful style of the authors as they illuminated ‘what is’ and ‘what can be’
3. It clearly and consistently zooms in on ‘consciousness (individual and collective)’ as the key capacity to be developed if we are to transcend our traditional limiting mindsets
4. ‘Development’ is highlighted as the ‘keystone variable’ in the equation of transformation. Traditional approaches to development call to mind the ‘blind men and the elephant’ story. The wondrous Wakhlus brilliantly describe the ‘whole elephant’ — in a way that can help us develop our unlimited potential as humans and as conscious caring living systems
5. It beautifully describes how we can fully enliven these words of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin — ‘We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience’
6. Though the philosophy brought forth in this book is extraordinarily deep in both its sources and its implications for the future, the co-author’s skillful use of metaphors has made this feast wonderfully digestible and memorable
7. It draws from diverse traditions (scientific, spiritual, psychological, and more) in ways that are clearly appreciative, integrative and celebratory
8. Not satisfied with a two-generation co-author team, they’ve included a third generation in Nitya Wakhlu’s elegantly simple and always illuminating illustrations. This delighted me!
9. I’ve become VERY excited about the potential for synergy between this gift from the Wakhlu’s and the emerging breakthroughs in social architecture of our human systems.
10. Reading this book triggered feelings that called to mind this Teilhard de Chardin quote — “There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.”
