Reinventing Ourselves Book Erica Harpe


Imagine having already all you need to realise your full potential. You just need access to it. Imagine having a code to your inner architecture, giving you the power to access and hone this inner genius.

This book uniquely integrates leadership theories with in-depth insight into human functioning and behaviour.

It combines Theory U’s social architecture, Integral Theory’s alignment and Barrett’s values with psychology, biology, neuroscience, whole system dynamics, and (universal laws of) energy.

We take you on a journey of consciousness, and show you how to access your full potential, providing easy to implement routines and rituals, integrating ancient wisdom with the latest science.


Reinventing Ourselves explores our human design. Along the way you will discover the diamond of your potential and the diamond of consciousness.

And how to practice stepping in your greatness so you can unlock your creative consciousness and apply it to your life, business and community.

By reading this book you will learn to see how you work at a human, energy and personality level. You will come to understand how each level is linked, and what the various dynamics at play are. This will provide you with access to all wisdom available in you and more resilience and results. Never before have we been so challenged to come up with new answers to the global issues facing us.

There is a growing awareness that the old consciousness is no longer fit for purpose. To survive, we must take a leap in consciousness. The emerging consciousness redefines what it means being human.

The most vital source to innovation is our consciousness. Join us on the journey and fly!

“Everything is energy, and that’s all there is to it.
Match the frequency of the reality you want,
and you cannot help but get that reality.
It can be no other way. This is not philosophy.
This is physics.”

– Albert Einstein

Inner Compass Tool

Do you recognize this? In this time of rapid societal change, what is your North Star? Today’s leaders are asked questions for which professional training did not prepare them. How do we lead ourselves and others to thrive in this change? How do I plan when I don’t know what will happen next? Where can I find the courage and faith to stay true to the course and my values? To trust?

We’re travelling unknown territory – we need to expand our consciousness!

Our Inner Compass emerged as a superpower in our teachings in a leadership program: a tool to reclaim our sophisticated sensing software to access the wisdom of the Field. All we need to navigate is inside us, we just need access! Our Inner Compass opens our inner knowing, scans our senses for our wisdom and enables us to tap into future potential (emergence). It creates resilience and shows us a way forward through resonance, images, sensations, feelings or energy as people move around the Compass. Imagine having a shortcut to Source, where you don’t need to think your way to an answer, you simply tune in and feel what is right! Or needed.


Our Inner Compass uniquely integrates whole system – , embodied – and energetic awareness with biology, psychology, neuroscience, and the universal laws of energy. Connecting the latest science with ancient wisdom. It provides you with interactive guidance for your or your teams questions and longings. You will discover that your body is your Inner Compass!

Join us on a systemic and dynamic journey, creatively engaging self, team and organisation. You can literally step into Our Inner Compass and awaken this wisdom inside of you.

Unlock both the outer (behaviour, structure, processes) and inner dimensions (beliefs, worldview, values, etc) to help guide and explore your and your team’s unique potential. Learn to unlock this inner software and realize you can cultivate this built-in resource, just like you can cultivate your muscles. Integrating it consciously creates a future-fit foundation.

By working with Our Inner Compass you will explore your human design as part of a larger field of consciousness, accessing all your wisdom and your potential in a felt way, not as a theoretical concept.

You will experience how it is to dynamically combine physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and energetic levels, and feel true integration on, as Wilber calls it, all quadrants, all levels. You will discover your Information Super highway by coming home in your heart which allows access to extraordinary states of clarity.

Never before have we been so challenged to come up with new answers to the global issues facing us: we simply need to step into our larger being!

    Reinventing Ourselves offers a creative blend of theory, story and practices, intended to grow human capacity.

    The book emphasizes the importance of relationship and imagination, and invites to reflect on personal experience and questions about values, consciousness and embodied knowing. This quest is a shared experience, in which the book shares lessons from others, on their journeys.

    I recommend this book as a must-read in these high demanding times.

    To effectively re-energize and become fully engaged, we need to shift our emphasis from getting more out of ourselves to investing more in ourselves. So we bring more of ourselves to work! To recharge ourselves we need to recognize the cost of energy-depleting behaviors – and change them, or as mentioned in Reinventing Ourselves: Wake up and Rise into your Greatness. I found the contents and exercises very valuable, and worthwhile to practice and reflect on.

    Yvonne van den BergHR Director Social Innovation Philips Lighting

    Great to read!

    This book is beautifully constructed, clearly written and beautifully designed!
    Everything that has interested me in the last decades (how organizations and individuals can grow and develop in consciousness) and has inspired me (Buddhism, strengthening mind-body connection through meditation and yoga) can be found here.

    A book that you always want to have with you. When randomly opening it you will always find what you are looking for, And it is very practical, thanks to the enclosed toolbox.
