Welcome to the Weston Network and Fierce Civility Project, where we empower individuals, communities and organizations to seek higher solutions to any issue or situation that perpetuates opposition, polarization, burnout and the outworn “win-lose” mode of thinking.

Recognizing that one model or system couldn’t possibly meet the needs of every individual, organization or community, Joe Weston has dedicated 30+ years to developing and road-testing a variety of powerful tools, practices, philosophies and techniques that help break down and dissolve the internal, interpersonal and societal barriers that prevent us from:

  • embodying personal authentic power and resilience.
  • creating efficient, thriving work cultures based on mutual empowerment.
  • setting the necessary groundwork for the emergence of new, inclusive and innovative solutions to some of our more intractable societal problems.

What makes our offerings stand out across so many sectors and cultures around the world is Weston’s human-centered approach, which blends innovative and easy-to-apply theories in the realms of communication, leadership and basic neuroscience with somatic practices that are both cutting-edge and timeless.

The result? Our clients have gone on to catalyze sustained, beneficial change in themselves, their families and communities, and their organizations and nonprofits. Achieving these successful outcomes ultimately leads to profound healing on individual, interpersonal and societal levels—bringing us all closer to a thriving, inclusive culture and the attainment of real, lasting peace.

"Being in one’s heart is not some saccharine-sweet greeting card sentiment. It is a strategy that challenges us to embody courage, wisdom, patience and skill in order to artfully and respectfully meet the challenges of our time."
