Janet Harvey on Generative Wholeness™

Generative Wholeness™ means adopting the dynamic capacities to originate, create, learn, and produce results, so we live sovereign, with the freedom to express personally and professionally from our inner, authentic self.

Janet Harvey, CEO and Generative Wholeness Practitioner

Living in a state of Generative Wholeness™ empowers a person to sustain excellence, from the inside out. Wholeness arises from being generative. It’s what allows a person to step into life in new ways consciously and to change. By living in the state of being that is Generative Wholeness™, it’s possible to consistently choose positive changes that nurture vitality.

Janet harvey

The word 'generative' is a puzzle to many people, but if you look at the dictionary, it's pretty straightforward: it simply means continuously producing results

Where do you think creation comes from? It comes from new, original thinking. You let yourself use your imagination and your intuition to bring something forward that is a variation on a theme or is something nobody has ever thought of before. That original idea gets created and tested so that you can learn what's most useful and satisfying, and then produce that product, solution, or experience. 

That flow I've just described is being generative.
