Holos Lecture by Jeremy Lent: Laying a Pathway to a Regenerative Civilisation
February 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Free 90-minute interactive webinar
The Future is not a Spectator Sport
Do we still have time and the will to lay a pathway to a regenerative civilisation?
“Even as our civilisation unravels, a new ecological worldview is spreading globally. Will it become powerful enough to avert a cataclysm? None of us knows.”
We will explore this critical question in our Holos Earth Project on-line interactive webinar on Thursday 17th February at 10h00 Pacific Time – 6pm GMT.
Weaving A “Web of Meaning” with Jeremy Lent
With the holistic perspective we will better recognise how our deep interrelatedness can help lay a pathway to a regenerative civilisation of sustainable flourishing.
Jeremy reminds us how our dominant worldview separates us from each other, splits mind and body and puts us at odds with the natural world. In asserting that this worldview has passed its expiration date – based as it is on a series of flawed assumptions that have been superseded by modern science – Jeremy shares how another worldview is possible that recognises our deep interrelatedness with all of life.
Jeremy will discuss themes from his book The Web of Meaning, a tour de force overview and integration of modern scientific knowledge, ancient wisdom, modern systems thinking, evolutionary biology, and cognitive neuroscience. These themes will be enriched with insights from Buddhism, Taoism, and Indigenous wisdom perspectives.
“Like all self-organised, adaptive systems, society moves in nonlinear ways… Perhaps the Great Transition to an ecological civilisation is already underway, but we can’t see it because we’re in the middle of it. We are all co-creating the future as part of the interconnected web of collective choices each of us makes: what to ignore, what to notice, and what to do about it.”
George Monbiot writes of Jeremy’s award-winning book The Patterning Instinct (2017):
“The most profound, brilliant and potentially world-changing book I’ve read this century…”
Hope to see you there.
