We frequently receive requests for articles and source material about regenerative development and the Regenesis approach. What we have compiled here is a good place to start. Below you will find articles written by Regenesis members, information about recently published and forthcoming books featuring our work, and a bibliography of the source material we have drawn on over the years.

If you can’t find what you need here, please feel free to email us.
