Person Profile for Renata Ferraz
I’m a person that started making authentic choices at the age of 15. I won a scholarship for an exchange student program during one year that took me to Australia in 1991. My perception of life and the world became wide at an early age.

At 25 I followed my heart again and went into my first spiritual journey that took me to Asia this time. Borobudur in Indonesia for a month retreat with a group, followed by India and Nepal for six months by myself.

Back from that experience, I stayed less than a year in my hometown São Paulo, Brasil. In the beginning of 2001, I went to a retreat at Khadro Ling, a dharma center in the south of Brasil from Chagdud Rinpoche and lived in this community as a volunteer for 4 years.

In the end of 2004, I moved to Porto Alegre, the capital of the south of Brazil, close to the dharma center, for a smooth transition back to the ordinary world. There I got a job as executive assistant for a cinema producer and after 2 years I moved to Rio de Janeiro to follow that career in the audiovisual area. After some commercial films in Rio, I stayed for 6 years at Canal Futura and took care of a special program that promoted the audiovisual market at the time, encouraging different narratives and freedom of expression.

In 2012 I did the Gaia Education program , Design for Sustainability and in 2014 I became a mother. The most amazing experience of my life, even though I have plenty of them.

In the beginning of 2018, we decided to move to Portugal, when I started another new life experience that I'll will write more about soon.

Playlists & More


About Patterns Tab...

The Patterns tab allows for the compilation of a personal playlist of frequently-used Patterns--practices, processes, frameworks, tools, capacities, livelihoods and any other elements of transformative action.

There are four types of Pattern:

  • Design patterns: basic, singular patterns that can stand on their own;
  • Guiding patterns: paradigm-related patterns, that can create an identifying context for--that is, serve to group--design patterns;
  • Process patterns: an assemblage of multiple patters, that can be applied randomly or sequentially to form an intervention (often referred to as a pattern language);
  • Meta patterns: systemic level patterns, that enable cross-over between different Communities of Practice and their Patterns.

Note: Currently, there is only one Pattern entity in RKC, these distinctions will be built into this entity, until such time it becomes necessary to individuate.

Pattern is a generative field, in that a new entry can prompt the creation of a new Pattern page, using a red link.

Pattern can be nested, which means it can be connected to other patterns via multiple levels of organization. By using the Parent field, any Pattern can be connected to the next higher-order Pattern it belongs to.


About Interventions Tab...

The Interventions tab allows for the compilation of a personal playlist of frequently-used Interventions--unique instances of potentially transformative actions.

Interventions derived from Patterns, stand a better chance to be transformative. The aim is for our Interventions to be well-conceived, context-specific and consciously applied.

Intervention is a generative field, in that a new entry can prompt the creation of a new Intervention page, using a red link.


About Narratives Tab...

The Narratives tab enables Persons to create relevant narrative elements about themselves, such as stories, descriptions, past experiences, and happenings.

About Essence Tab...

The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC (including oneself) to comment on what makes you unique along three different dimensions:
  • Aliveness: What energizes this being that really makes it come alive, beyond the functional of everyday existence.
  • Offering: The unique value a being offers in order to bring a higher-order of viability and vitality to, or evolve a particular system they are working to transform (this is context specific).
  • Potential: A tendency in a being that it is continually striving to manifest into existence.

Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each individual brings to this co-creative space...
