Here is a update (2018) of a three-part article Dan wrote in 2014, which many thousands have read and successfully applied in their lives:
- Introduction to Holistic Management: Part One – Clarifying the Whole
- Introduction to Holistic Management: Part Two – Articulating a Context
- Introduction to Holistic Management: Part Three – Putting your Context to Work
Here is one example of how an organic collective in the Blue Mountains applied what they learned from these articles.
Holistic Decision Making is something of a revelation for me and has radically affected the way I plan my day and the way I show up with my family.
The impacts of holistic thinking and decision making have been enormously positive in my life and generated so much proactive exchange benefitting myself and the communities i live within
I feel so grateful to have come across Dan’s HDM course. It is a framework for living that contains structure and process combined with intuition and deep connection to self. I absolutely recommend doing this course and am excited to bring it into my own life
Thank you for the incredible workshop, it has already shifted how I view myself, my approach to making decisions and my relationships with others
It’s not often I can say a guest on the show changed my life in an hour. Dan Palmer did.
Dan’s enthusiasm for holistic decision making is infectious, and the experience gave me great insight into the potential for this to become an integral way to approach and in fact craft our path in life. Thank you!
Dan’s HDM approach is deeply personal, meaningful, organic, creative and concise – in years to come I will reflect on this wananga/learning experience as an ‘Aha’ moment in our lives – it has encompassed our wholeness, and brought clarity and focus to the everyday choices I make and the way I move through life
Because I now have the whole well designed, this process is helping me to plan my week/months in the right direction in accordance with my my soul!
The holistic decision making system is probably the most useful tool I have ever been given.
Dan’s Holistic Decision Making workshop and guidance was a game changer for us at Pocket City Farms. At a time when our focus was being spread very thin, this allowed us to re-center and focus on our core vision, with a framework in place to make all decisions easily.
It was an awesome six-week journey that completely changed my perspective. I was able to identify what really matters to me and already during the course I was making decisions that honoured that. I’m sure I’ll be using these tools for life! I highly recommend this course if you are willing to have a very meaningful life
Dan has helped me understand the way all the parts of my life fit together in a way I didn’t know I was searching for.
Thank you for the most amazing workshop. It’s giving me focus and clarity and it’s done wonders for my relationship. It felt like looking into your heart, putting its content on paper, and then with a rational mind working out how to fulfil those dreams. Feeling motivated on the verge of bursting!
I feel so enlivened and energized by this HDM course and through Dan’s sheer enthusiasm and passion for teaching HDM as a whole and complete set of practices
Anyone open to finding more clarity in any aspect of their life should do this course. My biggest takeaway is that it’s entirely within my power to make decisions that direct myself to where I want to be headed, and I’m filled with gratitude to have the opportunity to spend the rest of my life doing that. What a way to live!
Thank you for all the clarity, love & magic that you brought to this course. My life already feels genuinely improved from having those QOL statements to take steps towards each day.
Dan’s online Holistic Decision making course is an inspirational and concise way to radically focus your attention, decision making and actions towards what you really want in life.
I can feel immense differences, things cracking open, doorways opening and in all areas of the course, ringing and pinging.
I highly recommend the course and I believe children should learn this in schools. It helped (and still helps) to bring clarity to what really matters to me and how to make decisions in that direction. Thanks Dan!
Thank you so much for the workshop on Monday. It has tipped my world on its head and given clarity and motivation to move forward again
Doing the online HDM course with Dan has been profoundly important to me. The ability to ask questions and engage in discussion with other participants clarified my understanding and deepened my connection with my context in ways that I could not have accomplished in other ways. Cannot recommend this experience highly enough.
I constantly refer people to your work with holistic decision making because I have found it so valuable.
Doing Dan’s holistic decision making workshop is like having kids – no one can tell you what it is going to be like in advance, but it totally transforms your life for the better!
We gained such clarity on our sense of personal and farming purpose and I would go as far to say that this training not only improved our business, it improved our marriage too!
