Most Change Theory and Practices are based on false, error filled, and unproven premises.

In spite of claims. And yet they get passed along as Best Practices. Books are written, programs are developed, by thought leaders, and sold by the thousands, only to fall short of promises leading the business or person to moves on to the next program.

Indirect Work offers you clear and practical approaches to test any change theory or programs for your organization, community efforts or personal growth, before you start or to examine what you do now. It can even help you make sense of past failures.

Indirect Work strongly challenges the validity of pop psychology and the damage it causes to human psyche and soul, ultimately, impacting the quality of our Society.


Indirect Work is translated and tested with study of thousands of years of effective change based on:

  • Indigenous ways of living in community and on the planet from across the world
  • Threads that run through wisdom of all lineage teachers across the world
  • Quantum Cosmology about how the universe works on individual, social, and plenary level.

All with case stories to illustrate application coupled with the reflections of decades of use in the last six decades.

You will have never read a book like this. In content and process of engaging. It teaches you how to read and reflect to disrupt your current certainties and see old situations in new ways…as you read.  Indirect Work is written in the way that you experience what it is teaching. It demands a different way of reading and engaging. That is accomplished through intermezzos, exercises you pause to incorporate, which is like a workbook within a book. See the reflections from the pre-readers on how effective it was for them and the specific effect it had. They say they will never read a book the same way again.

Indirect Work:

The Oldest AND BEST Researched Way to Create Real Change

Indirect Work is drawn from lineage and Indigenous sources and the teachings I have received from my maternal grandfather and others over my lifetime, including those studying with Native American Elders. I have been honored to study with wisdom teachers working globally with spiritual teachings developed over millennia.

I have spent six decades working to render these messages and experiences into a practical human technology that works in day-to-day life. You don’t have to go to an ashram, live a monk’s life, or walk on hot coals to play an effective role in the change we seek to make. You can use Indirect Work, rooted in these foundations, to test the likelihood of moving the needle when you turn your intentions into action. The technology it presents is for all humans, the institutions they steward, and those working in the field of change theory itself.

Tom PetersCarol Sanford’s book No More Feedback is clearly on my Top 5 management books of the century to date. It is brilliant, readable, incredibly well researched, contrarian, and ridiculously important.  I would travel many a mile to hear her speak and pray that her audience would listen intently—and act decisively. The world would be the better for it.
