Water Cycle #3. Martin Hill and Philippa Jones

It takes hard work and a commitment to be All-In. Fortunately, the Plus Wonder partnerships continually show us that this is not only possible, but essential for our survival.

We have much to learn from how these partnerships built their own Deep Connections, which they then expanded to wider collectives, and, in many cases, nurtured movements that have lasted for decades.
