S02E06 – Sitting in the Fire: Giving Birth to New Systems with Lana Kristine Jelenjev

Today’s conversation takes place in a small town north of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. 

I sat down with Lana Jelenjev, community alchemist, hospice worker for dying systems and midwife for new emerging systems. Lana introduces the two-loop model that explains her work and shares how she sets and upholds boundaries when helping others cross over from old to new. 

Lana is an avid fire starter, systems thinker and lifelong learner. She is an advocate of “self-full centric living” – a set of practices that you can use to help you live a legacy of connection, presence and fullness.
