On the 20th of November Charles Eisenstein will be joining us to explore how and why many cultures have lost sight of the fact that Earth is Alive.
Delving into deep cultural narratives that implicate technology, economics, the cosmologies of Indigenous Peoples, cultural imperialism, and our relationship to nature, in the course of the talk Charles will deconstruct the corrosive idea that Earth is inanimate.
Reflecting on Earth’s true nature as a complex living system- the primary source of all life and health- he will enable us to consider our own responsibilities to fellow members of the Earth community and future generations.
