Sheri Herndon is a thought leader, social innovator and embodied mystic. She holds a passion for regenerative culture, community and movement building, with a focus on coherence in social systems and scaling collective intelligence. As a long-time social innovator with numerous successes that have had a profound impact in human culture, she directs her energy toward projects and initiatives that are moving us toward a positive future. For the last 25 years, she has worked in the fields of media, technology and consciousness studies all toward developing new forms for civilization to be fully actualized. She is an exceptional navigator at the edge of cultural innovation. She serves the synergy between technology, media, social systems and personal and social development.
Her work has included organizational consulting, high level strategy, coaching, mentoring, speaking, convening, facilitating and whole systems design work. One of her great gifts is her extensive global network and her immense social, spiritual and intellectual capital. She connects the leaders of the new paradigm and has a unique ability to see the future. She has extensively facilitated healing and transformation in the realms of personal conscious evolution and planetary thrivability. At the heart of her passion is an embodied optimism. Her life path has brought her to a deep intimacy with many of the world’s Wisdom and Spiritual Traditions and she integrates these into her daily personal and social engagement, working with sacred and social technologies to accelerate our paradigm shift.
Her work at the local and global levels included building and nurturing coalitions and networks. In 1999, she cofounded Indymedia which thrust her into a lifelong love of the Internet and the open source revolution. Indymedia launched citizen journalism worldwide empowering diverse movements to tell their own story. She holds a deeply practical and utopic vision of what the Internet can be to serve our planetary awakening and ultimately accelerate more synergies between the silos of aligned communities worldwide. As a New Earth Solutionary, she sees an essential social function being one that maps, tracks, scans and connects what is working so we make visible the new paradigm that is emerging and already here.
She is a vision keeper for the New Earth and is devoted to catalyzing an enlightened civilization where all life thrives. A longtime yoga practitioner and meditator, deeply versed in new paradigm scientific understandings of reality, and passionate about conscious evolution, she weaves these understandings into everything she does as a social activist/artist and devotes herself to global social transformation from the inside out. Sheri is in the middle of a major relaunch of her acclaimed podcast ‘Heart of It All’ and is excited to share the stories, ideas, people and organizations who are committed to a more beautiful world.
