We've all attempted to make changes in our lives whether it's loosing weight or incorporating a spiritual practice into our lifestyle. But having the desire and even knowing the steps to take, often falls short of lasting, sustainable change. Mark Feenstra of Aliveworld, an Internet based platform, believes we can use today's technology to support the actions we need to take and perhaps, most importantly, to tap into the support of a global community of like-minded individuals. "There needs to be an infrastructure on this planet to help us consolidate what we are learning about how to make the most important changes. . . The primary people who need to be sharing what's working are the people who are themselves wanting to make the changes. Aliveworld is a global organization, person-centric infrastructure. It a container for human wisdom, understanding, and knowledge about how to make the most important changes and how to sustain them." (hosted by Michael Toms)


Mark Feenstra is the co-founder and CEO of Aliveworld, a web-based software platform to help people sustain the changes they want to make in their lives. Mark is based in New Zealand and leads a global, multi-cultural team. He is a long-term spiritual practitioner, blending East and West. He has a background in large scale systems change, research and development about how people learn together, and technology platforms that support human development.
