The regenerative ways are a set of principles and practices that can repair and restore connection. They describe how we might be, live, work and act - in order to create safe, inclusive, equitable, healthy and sustainable communities. Put simply - they are here to guide us on the journey of coming back to life.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Country that we work on throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and the Elders of other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We acknowledge the vital and central place of indigenous wisdom and indigenous voices as part of the regeneration movement - enabled by the unbroken connection of the
Traditional Owners to the land, waterways and skies.
Regenerative Ways is an Australian-based learning, educating and consulting agency - seeding and teaching regenerative ways to live, learn, lead and do business. We support the regeneration and transformation of cultures - within organisations, alongside leaders and within communities too. .
We are working toward a world where people feel valued, where we steward resources wisely and where diverse and healthy communities are equipped to face the greatest challenges of our times.
We bring together expertise in social impact, regenerative business, community development, conflict resolution, trauma-informed somatics, leadership coaching and organisational change, working together to create more connection, compassion and courage in the environments in which we live and work.
We believe in the principles of humanity, equality, inclusion, collaboration and safety - understanding that these are the most important tenets of creating long-lasting social and system change and societal and cultural regeneration.
Our work is feminist and centres the lived experiences of the communities we work to empower and support - relationships are integral in everything we do.

who we've worked with
The Equality Institute has been working with Regenerative Ways over two years on developing embodied and transformative educational content on gender issues. This has included a three-part webinar series on feminist leadership and ground-breaking eLearning content for workplaces on gender equality. Regenerative Ways are leaders in connecting the micro to the macro – from the feelings and responses in our bodies to the structures of our societies, in order to create meaningful change. It is an absolute joy working in partnership with Regenerative Ways, and they have been instrumental in helping us expand our impact through strategies and content that is regenerative, creative and connected.
Dr Emma Fulu, Founder, The Equality Institute
Regenerative ways understands that policy setting and implementation is about behaviour setting and change. Their human-first approach to their research and analysis ensures their insight and recommendations not only make sense, but are sustainable and practical at every level of organisational change management.

Thank you for your enormous generosity and heart for this work - to invite us to own what we know in our own hearts, to seed it freely - what a beautiful gift that is. I so admire and am thankful for your exquisite leadership.
I reached out to Meg and experienced 1:1 coaching, circle facilitation, embodied movement facilitation and Voxer support. Meg has a way of meeting me in all of the disowned, shamed parts of myself that brings them back into belonging. A way that helps me notice the thinnest loosest thread of safety that can be woven into a cosy blanket with care. A way of bringing all of the diverse, different, non-sensical parts of myself into my full most alive self.
After disentangling myself from a culture of shame, coercion and oppression in my working and learning life - Meg illuminated the story that was keeping me in hustle with my work. I now feel more confident to move my work in a way that breathes more life into myself, my family and my broader community.
Her effortless story telling, deep listening and capacity to place the diverse pieces into one welcome whole are shared through her craft. Not only does Meg talk about feminist, neurodivergent, anti-racist, regenerative and post-capitalist ways of being in the world - it is clear that Meg shares these from rich, lived experience.
