  1. Hi Helene

    Your book is like manna from heaven for me. I work with teams on a daily bais and sometimes the dynamics require various approaches and I think your approach of depth facilitation is powerful. Thanks so much for the labour of this book.

  2. Hi Helene,

    Long, long time no see or speak!! So good to hear from you again after all this time. Congrats on your books. Will be purchasing one soon.
    Hope you are keeping well?

  3. […] to use CoPs in our work we need to keep this and much, much more in mind. With a lot of help from Hélène Smit, Layo Seriki and Judith Haupt,  I do try but I’ll save the details for another blog post. […]

  4. I would so much like to understand what is meant by Yannis Ritsos’s “This face looks at you between two columns of still water.”? I relate to the previous part of “A face” that is quoted in Beneath.

    Please help.

    • Hi Meyer

      I am sure this quote means different things to different people, but for me it is about the face we have that integrates the conscious and unconscious minds.

  5. Dear Helen, I was so delighted to read your blog about starting a transition town. Here in the Western Cape, in Greyton, we’ve been going for around six months and already there is so much happening. We’d love to share experiences with you, maybe even arrange visits so we can share our journey. My email is nicolavernon@kingsley.co.za, telephone number 082 558 7752. We should have our website up and running soon – I’ll let you know. Kind regards, Nicky

  6. Dear Helene,
    I’d very much like to know if you are running any short courses on change management? Friends of mine who’ve attend your lectures at business school only have good things to say.
    I am struggling to get onto the feather website to get further info.
    Kind regards
