Holistic Life Context, Holistic Life Context Practicum, Life Design, Single Decision Session
I was delighted to find out that you’ve invested in the skill of decision making, because it’s something I’m struggling with!
My husband and I have been contemplating where to move and whether to buy/rent for many years, however, the state of the world has brought a sense of urgency to the decision.
The problem is that we keep going around and around in circles. Also, the potential collapse is adding an element of fear to the discussion, which makes it more confusing!
It’s wonderful when life brings you someone who might be able to help!
We had an epic conversation last night, which resulted in a monumental breakthrough!
We’re feeling totally clear now (finally!) on what journey we need to embark on.
Thank you for the vital work you do Javan.
Sending you good vibes and gratitude.
Holistic Life Context, Holistic Life Context Practicum, Life Design, MentorshipI found Javan while working on my PDC course. I was at a loss as how to make any sense of what my goals for the project were when I didn’t know what goals I wanted for my actual life. After listening to some podcasts and watching some of his YouTube videos I knew Javan was someone I wanted to work with.Our time together was always a welcome part of my week and the homework had me dig deep to design the life I want based on not what my goals are but to really understand what is important to me and to design a life around that.The material that you work through is so well laid out and easy to follow but full of wisdom. And Javan’s infectious smile will have you smiling right along with him.With his support and encouragement, I now have the tools to make better decisions and help manage an anxiety that often left me in a state of paralysis by analysis. I look forward to the continued evolution and refinement that these tools and Javan have gifted me.
Holistic Life Context Practicum
After finding incredible value in creating my own context with Javan I became increasingly eager to help others with this work, and the next step was obviously to understand it better for myself.
The Practicum program allowed me to take my understanding of context and values-based decision-making deeper, with each process allowing me to unlock another level. It came at a time when I was making increasingly complex decisions for myself, my family, and the nascent intentional community that we are a part of. Sometimes all three of those Wholes interlocked, creating a fascinating complexity – but one that would have been overwhelming without having a process in which to hold and ground it.
Having Javan mentor me through this phase and provide feedback was invaluable, helping me to ‘thread the needle’ with the big interlocking decisions.
By the end of the program I felt ready to start assisting those around me in a really meaningful way, but also realised how managing complexity well is one of the biggest challenges we face in the world today – and that it holds the key to meaningful, positive change going forward.

I must say Javan Kerby Bernakevitch – thanks to your ‘ruthless clarity of vision’ sessionson the first two regrarians online courses… I’ve distilled the mission of the organization to focus on the connection…for me what we do ultimately comes back to that and so our mission is to “to regenerate our sacred connection to country, community and culture”. getting it down to as few words as possible was (and is) a process.

When I started working with Javan I was looking for help to become better at planning and organizing my life, and striking a better work/life balance. I have learned so much about myself through this process. I now have a better understanding of what my priorities are, and more realistic expectations of myself. I feel lighter, more relaxed, and if I lose track I know I have the tools to help me get moving again.

We were in a very tough life-changing decision-making position and had 3 days, due to work requirements, to make that decision. Out of panic we reached out to Javan and he made himself available at a moment’s notice. His guidance and process helped us make a tough decision, one that we weren’t able to make on our own. We are incredibly thankful for his time and are comfortable and happy with the decision outcome! We would recommend Javan to anyone looking for guidance on how to tackle a big life transition.

Implementing a holistic framework with my wife (newly wed) over the last years has been both instrumental and revolutionary, but also difficult, slow going, and iterative in our attempts – in so many ways. From the basic ability to communicate a vision and how to achieve it, to the more intricate reality of the day to day process of managing who are we? where are we? and where are we going? and how are we getting there?
For me, I like to be explicit about all of this and examine my life, and so Holistic Management and Javan Kerby Bernakevitch have given me invaluable tools to create my life’s journey, I really only regret not having learned this in kindergarten.

I’ve realized that we never learned how to think deeper.
I can find more answers then I use to.
The communication between Bart and me is much better, most of the time we can discuss calmly. We can talk about almost everything. Also the daily communication with the children is much better and we set up the daily schedule, that’s an improvement.
I’ve learned to look in a different way at myself and others. The “part of me” tool of sovereignty is a real help.
The spot check tool is also very helpful. Every week we evaluate ourselves and we need to do this just to work on ourselves.
I was amazed when we made the inventory for ourselves, we have/can more than we realize.
I had my doubts of starting this ‘journey’ but I’m glad we did it together as a couple for us and our family, not just Bart. So thank you for your excellent guidance Javan!

We knew Holistic Management would be an important improvement for managing our lives and family and started using what we learned from books but we didn’t have the positive effects from it until we committed to working with an objective outside professional. We could not have the same results by ourselves. We learned to get to the cause of problems more effectively. We learned to communicate better as a family and will continue on this path.
We have been able to use the principles of Holistic Management much more effectively through working with Javan and his refined system of using the Holistic Context and decision making.
The addition of spot checks was really helpful in using and working with our Context more proactively instead of just using it when a decision needs to be made. This alone fast tracks the process so much.
The decision forms, especially the longform, are helpful in fleshing out and fine tuning the proposed actions.
I loved seeing the already holistic process made even more holistic.

“With the spot checks we are forced to talk to each other and dive deeper. It’s in a format that doesn’t feel awkward. Before this I couldn’t talk about my feelings. I used to say “it’s not my thing” talking about feelings. Through your process it became easier and natural. It’s a step by step system to discuss what’s important to us.”
“For me and for us as a couple it’s amazing in how few weeks we look at ourselves and others in a different way. It’s a big positive experience with our communication with each other. We’ve been with each other for 18 years, how is it our communication is so much better? It’s a lot better than it used to be. Thank you.”
