About Us


This beautiful, bubbling thing that is iNSPiRED PRACTiCE  is a culmination of the passion and excellence at the core of one person, Kristle Calisto-Tavares and is reflected in the work of many change agents throughout the world. Kristle is a pro-AMPHiBiAN who believes in transformative community innovation. She makes it her mission (and job, for that matter) to work with conscientious for-profit and non-profit organizations to interpret the concepts of sustainability into (socially and economically) profitable actions. She along with the rest of the iNSPiRED PRACTiCE crew wish to inspire, inform and empower you, the reader, to build a better world.

There is a Hopi saying: “A frog does not drink up the pond in which she lives.” Neither do we! Amphibians are particularly atuned to their environment. In fact, when an ecosystem is out of balance due to contamination or species and habitat depletion, frogs are amongst the first to register the effects. The people of Haida Gwaii located just “at the edge of the world” believe that frogs are symbols of good fortune and magic. It is said, “there is always magic around when a frog is present”.  Even more telling, however, is the frog’s transformative characteristics and its unique ability to successfully exist in often opposite worlds – on land and in water. As a result, the Haida people label the frog a messenger and communicator.

It is for this reason that we are liberating the amphibians within ourselves to share messages of inspired practice.

So tell us, are you feeling particularly froggy today? Yes? Then leap!
