Our Story

We are Provocateurs & Rebels

Bridging Worlds

Envisioning People & Planet in Flow

Let's Break Normal

The Flowstate Collective, founded by Jiro Taylor, is a global tribe of provocateurs and rebels. 

We are dedicated the transformation of humans, the emergence of flow cultures and the creation of regenerative global systems.

We are united by a knowing that disruptive businesses and the pioneers who lead them will shape our future on this planet.

So we collaborate on projects that empower business leaders to awaken and develop the skills to co-create New Paradigm organisations that contribute to a world in flow.

Our Purpose

The choice for humanity is clear: continue the old story and perish, or begin a new story and thrive.

A founder with deep self-awareness and belief can be a visionary creator of the new story.

A founder stuck in self-doubt is another cog in the machine.

The difference comes down to consciousness. What we are not conscious of we can do nothing about.

The Harvard Business Review claims these are the skills needed to thrive in an uncertain future: innovative thinking, resilience, humility, communication skills, open-mindedness and emotional intelligence.

We go beyond these foundations, and teach founders how:

  1. Develop Flow Consciousness
  2. Create Flow Cultures
  3. Contribute to global Flow Systems

The Flowstate Collective

Jiro Taylor

Founder & Flow Connoisseur

I help mission-driven founders optimise their performance. I also advise a range of companies on leadership and high performance culture creation.

As the founder of Flowstate I guide a help a community of flow-seekers, entrepreneurs, CEOs and organisations overcome the blocks that limit natural flow.

This work places me at the intersection of scientific research, spiritual practice and nature immersion.

Within the confluence of these rivers I revel as an explorer of consciousness, student of life, and guide to higher levels of consciousness.

Steffen Stauber

Founder & Creative Explorer | Create Meaning

I'm a mixture between a creative director, a strategist and little bit of a geek. I combine expertise in communication, design, branding and technology to help companies to bridge the gap between ideas, strategy and new business solutions.

I started my career in advertising in 2005 with a degree in graphic design. But from day one I never really felt comfortable with any of the usual job descriptions.

If you ask me today, “What the heck are you?” I would try to describe it with the term “Creative Generalist”. Simply because, whether it’s an advertising campaign, a strategy or a business idea – I’m passionate about creating a vast variety of things. This approach paired with my curiosity has taken me from Germany to Beijing and London where I had the fortune to work with truly inspiring people in some great companies.

After over 10 years in business I decided to quit my great job as Managing Partner at LHBS and start a journey around the world to explore how to empower entrepreneurs to make a difference.

Let's see where my curiosity will take me this time. I'm excited to keep you posted...

Ilana Wetzler

Transformational Coach, Speaker & Facilitator

I've spent the last decade on an incredible adventure while traveling the world facilitating projects in transformation on individual, collective & systemic levels.

I coach high impact leaders and philanthropists to co-create and support the current global shift we are going through. I work as a facilitator, coach and speaker and a catalyst for unlearning fear and remembering love.

I've created and facilitated over 250 events and programmes across South Africa, India, Scotland, Greece, Germany, England, Italy, Ireland, United States, China and Sweden.

My main projects at the moment are Conspire, Flowtribe, Create Meaning & the Cocreation Loft. I find flow in leaning into grace, playing with magic, going on crazy adventures, being in deep stillness & rolling about with as many animals and humans as I can.

Philipp Eibach

Flow Ideation & Design Maven

Philipp is an designer, artist, entrepreneur and student of life. Currently based in Berlin, Philipp studied design, management and media art and has always worked at the intersection of these fields.

He immersed in the tech start-up world by spinning off from the innovation lab of Germany’s biggest telco company, and creating a mobile music service for co-listening.

He was awarded as one of Germany’s top innovators, the company was acquired by US company… which led Philipp to a stint in corporate management in Miami. Which sucked.

Craving real connections and creative expression he headed back to Berlin for conscious recalibration, and dived into various art projects, contemplation and deep self-enquiry.

He has recently launched his own design studio rlon with basecamps in Berlin and Bali. His focus is on the creation of objects and narratives that inspire new ways of thinking by suggesting new models and interactions.

Philipp joins the Flowstate family to provide creative inspiration, and be part of the movement to co-create a more flowy world.

Consciousness Explorer & Breather

hannes co-created virtual reality biofeedback (heart rate, breath) projects based upon visual stimuli and meditation studies at the Institute of Neuroscience (University of Oregon). These were presented at international museums and conferences. At Stanford University, hannes won the presentation award in the panel ``Well-Being Computing: AI meets Health and Happiness Science`` at the AAAI Spring Symposia 2016.

Currently hannes and team integrate breath sensors with AI into everyday screen-based interactions for personalized design and user experiences.

hannes guides breathing, yoga and meditation sessions, inspired by Tibetan and friend Wim Hof's practices. hannes’ journey is a healing from birth trauma/cerebral palsy/projected wheelchair and decades of depression through physical exercises but mainly contemplative practices.

hannes believes the ‘trick’ is to add (sub-)conscious breath awareness into technological interactions and embodied experiences.

(nb: hannes intentionally doesn't refer to himself in the ``I`` or capitalize his name... it's an ego(less) thing)

We Practice Flow Philosophy

Philosophers, mystics and meditators of the past and present have developed powerful techniques to understand and achieve flow.

To be able to enter a state of effortless non-resistance, supreme awareness and immersion into the natural rhythm of the universe is a mark of mastery in most cultures.

But in the industrialised west, we have forgotten that control of consciousness determines our human potential.

We Understand & Integrate the latest Flow Science

In flow state a subtle shift in our brain’s electrical and chemical patterns change how we process information.  

We act intuitively, spontaneously and skill-fully, as our senses become heightened and our self-limitation vanishes.

Advances in neuroscience, physics and psychology converge with ancient wisdom to allow us to explore our inner worlds and the collective consciousness that connects us all.

This is the emerging future, the far-flung edges of human potential.

Where Wisdom & Science converges, we play

Bridging the worlds of science and spirituality, flow represents a new “middle path” for the rational human.

Through flow experience you need no dogma or set of beliefs: you learn via the truth of your own experience, and in doing so, develop a higher level of self-awareness.

By teaching founders “flow consciousness” and guiding organisations to “flow culture” we are harnessing the power of flow, to catalyse the system-level change we need to thrive on planet earth.
