Available in English and (soon) German.

This is for the stewards of our planet

For the midwives of the new earth. With our civilization being on the brink of collapse there will be a small group of people diligently working on novel responses to our collective challenges.

People who have the capability to combine knowledge from various fields, bridging the gap between environmentalism, entrepreneurship, spirituality and holistic health.

What calls this book into existence?

We are living in a personal and collective mess

Through inadequate treatment as children a hole inside ourselves stays where a deep trust into life should have developed. This leads to us looking for love in external things (shopping, work, food, sex, social media, drugs, etc.).

And the only way of supplying 8 billion addicts with their next fix is the exploitation of nature. We’re living in collective misery and pulled all other species into it.

Humans have the power of gods, but lack the wisdom of gods

We ascended to the top of the food chain through our use of technology. From paleolithic stone axes to our modern day computers. Technology equips our feeble bodies with sheer unlimited power. But we misuse this power for our own personal gain.

We treat all other beings, our fellow humans included, as resources to be exploited, as raw material out of which the quick fixes to our inner emptiness are manufactured.

Either we step into our role as custodians of Earth or everything will collapse

With great power comes great responsibility. What if humanity would put its enormous capabilities to collective use? What if we would see ourselves as the custodians, the stewards and caretakers, Gaia, our loving Mother Earth, needs us to be?

If we radically reimagine the way we live we have the chance to build a true paradise - for us and every other living being on this beautiful planet.

The dilemma of a custodian:
Can you relate to this?

Intense longing for community

Living in deep connection with like-minded people who are as crazy in a positive way as we are. People who truly get us and with whom we can build the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

Existential sadness

We are highly sensitive to what is going on around us. We feel the whole extent of the mess that was created on this earth - individually and collectively. And sometimes we are swallowed by its sheer intensity.

Stretched by complexity

We are already contributing our gifts to the greater good. But it seems that it‘s never enough. They are needed everywhere at once. All the issues are interrelated and so complex.

Finite resources

Being strong purpose driven leaders, we need to admit that our capacities are limited. Our children, our businesses, our relationships, the whole world - everybody appears to be demanding our attention.

It is not a good measure of health to be well adjusted to a sick society.

J. Krishnamurti

Our 3 big herculean tasks

Embodying the new paradigm in each area of our lives

Whereas the rest of humanity blindly follows their own short-sighted desires, we act with a whole systems bird's eye view. We treat our bodies and our minds as the infinitely powerful entities they are.

We surrender to the greater forces and go out of the way. So that we can become the vessel through which precisely what is necessary will be brought down to this earth. This is how a custodian of Gaia approaches every area of life: relationships, work, health, etc.

Designing alternative living systems where everybody thrives

All the fancy co-living projects out there don‘t go far enough. Either the local people get exploited, the setting is only dedicated to crypto hustlepreneurs without children, vast swathes of nature are cut for pseudo-sustainable luxury mansions or it‘s a „let‘s escape to the forest and hope the global issues won‘t affect us“ kinda setting.

We aim to build the most aligned living systems - in nature, community and service. Where every living being thrives.

Manifesting the new earth on a global scale

While we work on embodying our new identity as a custodian of the whole, we simultaneously redesign the fundamental systems that govern our world. Imagine a monetary system in alignment with the biosphere. Or an educational system that preserves our children's innate genius.

Companies that are dedicated to the thriving of all its stakeholders. Rethinking politics, culture, infrastructure and our narrative of a good life. Basically reimagining everything our civilization is built upon.

Peek into the broad spectrum of topics we will dive into:

*not all topics will be covered in the first issue of Gaia’s Custodians. It’s a seasonally book series - every couple of months there will be a new issue. We are invited to explore and integrate all relevant topics over time.

Embody these 4 archetypes to become a Custodian of Gaia

They will guide our exploration journey over the upcoming issues of „Gaia’s Custodians“.

The Romantic

Inviting The Romantic means falling in love with Gaia. Being deeply touched by her incredible beauty and perfection. And at the same time feeling all the sadness and anger that arises when we confront ourselves with the immense pain we humans caused - in each other and the environment.

The Guardian

Let all the upcoming emotions strengthen our determination to protect what is sacred. Embodying The Guardian means realizing our full physical potential. Vibrant health and unbound energy are mandatory to develop the capacity to become a strong and effective vessel for creation.

The Genius

And this is where The Genius enters the stage. An open heart and a vigorous body are the prerequisites for harnessing our ultimate mental capabilities. Developing not just the intelligence, but the wisdom necessary for redesigning life on earth. For an enlightened future.

The Mystic

Just when your commitment to your newfound mission puts you at risk of applying too much pressure, The Mystic reminds you to surrender to the greater forces. Give up control and trust that exactly what needs to happen will happen. This is your connection with the spirit realm.

A book as a living being

Regenerative - not just sustainable

Every book is printed under the Cradle to Cradle design philosophy by gugler*, the world’s leaders in ecological printing. So if it’s time to retire for your companion, you can throw him on the compost. He will be more than happy to nourish your garden or food forest.

Multimedial

It’s time to bring the medium of books into the 21st century. Instead of visually unstimulating pages of running text, beautifully illustrated pieces of art are awaiting you. With lots of additional resources to enhance your learning experience.

Online community

Learning is much more effective if we do it together. After downloading your copy of “Gaia’s Custodians” you are invited to our Telegram group. This is where the true magic happens - the books are just the starting point for our journey to co-create the future.

A series - not just a single book

Change is a constant. This is your invitation to embark on our shared quest. Every couple of months there will be a new issue of “Gaia’s Custodians”, waiting to be reflected and executed upon. The path will emerge while we’re walking it.

Why I release „Gaia’s Custodians” now …

I’m Robert, 33 years old, born and raised in Germany and now living in Bali.

10 years ago I started my first business about my raw vegan diet. Since then I have embarked a host of different projects all dedicated to serving the more beautiful world: one of Germany’s biggest conscious entrepreneurship conferences, an incubator for purpose-driven personal brand, a co-working space in Berlin, two community villages, a cinema movie and much more.

With everything I did my perspective broadened and I understood more and more why the world is as it is - and that the traditional measures don’t really work. They are not systemic enough and too short-sighted.

But my biggest teacher …

My son Lionel, now two years old. He demands nothing less than what is in perfect alignment - for him, for me, for the world.

Would be an honor to be able to share some of the wisdom with you that I received from him and a whole array of other incredible teachers. So that we may collectively learn, grow and embody our true roles as custodians of Gaia.

This book series is just the start of our shared journey

This book is living in the gift.

It’s an expression of my sacred work, the most meaningful and important work I can imagine. All my love and creativity went into crafting it. That’s why it feels totally inappropriate to put a price tag on it. It is so good, it can only be given away. I subscribe to Charles Eisenstein's idea of a sacred economy. The usual way of selling products - cold, anonymous and standardized transactions - doesn’t resonate anymore. I see my work as a gift to the world.

So “Gaia’s Custodians” isn’t behind any pay wall. It’s accessible for everybody. I want to invite you to download the book, dive into it and then check in with yourself what you feel the urge to contribute.

FAQ

Gaia, the whole ecosystem on our beloved planet, invites us humans to step into our appropriate role. To stop the endless exploitation of everybody and everything around us. And to become the custodians, the stewards, the caretakers of earth. It is time for the coming of age of humanity.

We are asked to leave behind our childish behavior of taking more and more and really grow up into the mature, strong and caring adults Mother Earth intended us to be. We have been given an incredible combination of intellectual, spiritual, emotional and physical potentials – now it’s our task to develop them and put them to good use. With great power comes great responsibility.
This is for the visionaries and the pioneers. For the stewards of the new earth. Bright, innovative and heart driven human beings who sense that we are living in the most important era in the history of our planet. With our civilization being on the brink of collapse there will be a small group of people diligently working on novel responses to our global challenges.

People who have the capability to combine knowledge from various fields, bridging the gap between environmentalism, entrepreneurship, spirituality and holistic health. These grounded, caring, brilliant and strong human beings will be the custodians of the new earth.
You can choose between the ebook version and the print version. If you decide for the latter, you get the ebook version as a bonus on top. Isn’t it super annoying to be away from home, suddenly feel a strong desire to dive into a book and then have to buy the ebook version additionally? See, that’s why you get both versions.

Yes. After 10 years of doing business, I stepped into the realm of the gift fully. I see my work as a gift to the world and let everybody check in with themselves if they feel the urge to contribute.
And yes, to be honest, as beautiful as it sounds to live in the gift, it is quite a stretch. Every day. All the skeletons are invited to come out of the closet. Each and every situation of my past 33 years in this incarnation where I felt not seen, not heard, not valued, arises to the surface. With all the emotions that this entails. And simultaneously all the outside pressures of the old world where we still have bills to pay, and money is an important resource for navigating life as it is right now. No, I didn’t put aside a nice sum of money for myself while conducting business. Everything always went back into serving the purpose.

But besides these challenges, I know there is no other path. The only way forward is through. I sense that stepping into the realm of the gift brings profound healing—for myself and for the world as a whole.

So here is my gift for you. I put all my love and creativity into it. May it serve you in whichever way that is most aligned.




We are living in a personal and collective mess. Through inadequate treatment as children a hole inside ourselves stays where a deep trust into life should have developed. This leads to us looking for love and fulfillment in external things. All sorts of addictions are the result (shopping, work, food, sex, social media, drugs, etc.).

And the only way of supplying 8 billion addicts with their next fix is the exploitation of nature. Destruction of ecosystems, species extinction, the climate catastrophe and a broken economic system that enriches the wealthy at the expense of the masses. We’re living in collective misery and pulled all other species into it.

This is changing now. Or the end of human history will be near. “Gaia’s Custodians” is our contribution to the enormous change of our trajectory. Let’s see what it will lead to…

Very soon. The translation process will be finished shortly. Please download the English version in the meantime and we will let you know when the German version is ready for you to dive into.

I’m pretty sure you sense that many things on this planet are shifting. And that they all converge in our invitation to become the custodians of this earth. Only if we step into the role that Gaia has given to us, can there be a future in which all living beings are able to thrive - including us humans.
