Reading this, you’ll get to know my professional persona… the one that works, and thinks about how to do things better: the field of exploration of a shared reality called business. But for me, really, it’s joy. I’ve always been quite radical in that: Just doing what I want to; not a hedonistic wanting (although I’m a lover of things, matters and good food and slow sex) but rather, an answer to to what maybe can be called, what my heart wants… And knowing that creativity in all matters of life is my strength (and sometimes curse), my professional life reflects that. So here we go:

Mushin co-founded Integral Collaboration Service in April 2013 Berlin, Germany to further develop and market a range of services geared to enable, enhance and speed up Generative Organisational Development and Transformation, incl. generative whole systems design, implementation and performance optimisation, and flexible multi-platform software and applications.

Mushin is also CTO of Siryus Software since 2009 and has developed the Collaboration Suite of Apps, including “Construcution Intelligence Software” which he also independently markets. He manages the portfolio of products and services. He co-owns the IP of all software of the company.

Previously Mushin has been Chief Community Host & Web 2.0 developer for Gaiasoft/Gaiaspace, Inc., London. A passionate collaboration ecologist, he architected off-line and online environments, guided programmers and designed the interfaces.

Mushin, starting his career as social and street worker in Amsterdam, Netherlands, has hands-on experience as a community builder, coach and group process facilitator for over 3 decades in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Germany. Mushin has been a pioneer of social networking since the first online forums and is a prolific networker.

Mushin is author of 3 books on human potential topics and has been journalist for radio, TV and print media. He is a key-note speaker on topics ranging from collaboration platforms, governance & economy 3.0, and used to facilitate seminars and workshops.

Mushin is also engaged as:
•    Member of the Policy Leadership Circle of the Cultural Strategies Initiative, New York
•    Adviser for Institute for Spirituality & Sustainability [SISS] at the Fordham University, NY, JAF Stoner Chair of Global Sustainability
•    Facilitator and participatory design advisor for GreenWorks NYC, a Green Economy and Workforce Development Initiative with New York Council Member Alan J. Gerson.

    I stumbled upon your excellent blog when I was searching for “morphogenetic fields” on Google images. I enjoyed watching the video on motivation. Very interesting indeed. Very useful for parents who want to motivate their children, coaches who want to motivate their team, people who want to motivate themselves, etc.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Mushin, Walking tonite the advaita trail, what chance bought me to stumble upon this? Again and again I found myself, echoed by your words, my heart warmed. Your thoughts on incarnation and your words of love to your father at his funeral especially moving… Brave soldier, Shanti Shanti Shanti…Druvid

    Here you are again! I was exploring what was for me an unfamiliar loka of people, starting with reading Otto Scharmer’s presentation on Presencing which led me to wanting to see his website and then Blog which brought me to replies I resonated with from David Hodgson, so I went to his website and was curious how he might interact on twitter where I saw some comments I also resonated with by ‘Mushin” and wondered if it was the same Mushin who I am “friends” with on Open Source Integral and Gaia – which lead me to your twitter page and then here. And as I get to know more, of course the connections, and that you are all related makes sense. I love what you say in your bio regarding your general orientation – and your shift to supporting people to being their own guru, leader and agent of change.

    Lovely to see you once again. Thank you for all that you do in the light of “supporting others [to live] what is true to their very core”

    Namaste and love,

    Ellen – (sunyalila)

      Thank you dearest Ellen, also for making transparent the journey along the connecting lines of the ‘social graph’.

      This, in turn has led me to journey to your website again and look at your presence there. And I see you inspired by the expressions of advaita or neo-advaita or however we’d like to call that stream of communicating the mysteries of being alive.

      It’s great to know we’re connected.
