Our Roots

Burnt out, anxious and over-weight, Jiro Taylor “escaped” the corporate world in 2008 to spend the next 9 years re-discovering self, re-connecting to meaning and redefining success.

After studying with masters and learning from nature Jiro felt called to bring higher awareness to a new generation of leaders and businesses.

Flowstate launched in 2014 as a platform to empower business leaders with the inner skills to lead thriving organisations of higher meaning.

Jiro Taylor

Founder & Flow Connoisseur

First of all, I'm a curious student of life. Next, I'm a friend, brother, son and husband.

Now we can get onto labels. I'm the founder of Flowstate, host of FlowTribe and the Flowstate Performance Podcast. Over the last 10 years I've earned my chops is the human potential and business consulting space.

My passion is in going deep into nature, meditation, contemplative traditions, self-development, business strategy, embodiment practices and breath work.

I work privately with high performing entrepreneurs, CEO’s and start-up founders as a creative strategy coach, mentor and consultant.

My vision is of a world in flow.

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.

Giles Hutchins

Revolutionary Agent of Change

In these transformational times, Giles Hutchins stimulates the head-space and heart-knowing for forward-leaning leaders and organisations to become vibrant, purposeful and future-fit. The 20th century organisation-as-machine logic is giving way to the 21st century organisation-as-living-system which revolutionises how we lead and operate.

Giles is a pioneering practitioner, keynote speaker and executive coach at the fore-front of this necessary revolution. He applies advanced consciousness raising techniques, deep-dive nature immersions, embodiment work, ancient wisdom tradition insights, and cutting edge research on leadership consciousness.

Previously Global Head of Sustainability for the multinational technology provider Atos, and Business Transformation Lead for KPMG Consulting, he is also co-founder of Biomimicry for Creative Innovation and Chairman of the Future Fit Leadership Academy.

He has been interviewed by the BBC, and contributes to a variety of global networks and institutions. He blogs at and is author of The Nature of Business (2012), The Illusion of Separation (2014) and Future Fit (2016).

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.

hannes bend flowstate

hannes bend

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 geek out on 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 razor edge of what we are capable of.

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.
