Will these be every MCFly reader’s cup of (herbal, fairtrade) tea? No. But then, we’re probably not going to bring about “cultural change” without, um, changing our culture…
- Finding our authentic voice
focussing on the current processes of change in ourselves and the world
towards a more generous and creative future.
While many of us are aware that the systems we are living with are not serving the interests of the majority of humanity, and are actually damaging the foundations of life on this planet, we can be overwhelmed with feeling helpless to change direction. Our dependency on these systems in providing our everyday needs, traps us into supporting them. Lulled into a stupor by media, drugs and shopping, we are complicit in our own destruction.
With increasing world-wide communication our collective concern for the human family and the whole biosphere brings an awareness of ourselves as integral to the web of life. This understanding sees, in the current crises, the possibility of a new consciousness breaking through old habits of thought and patterns of behaviour to produce a more just and sustainable future.
Since we are part of the problem, can we be part of the solution?
Can we become agents instead of victims?
Some of the work we will cover:
- Transition Towns (Rob Hopkins)
- The Work that Reconnects (Joanna Macy)
- A Course in Miracles (Marrianne Williamson)
- Agents of Conscious Evolution (Barbara Marx Hubbard)
- The Empathic Civilisation (Jeremy Rifkin)
- Cracks in Capitalism (John Holloway)
- The Real Wealth of Nations (Riane Eisler)
- Integral Enlightenment (Ken Wilbur)
- Occupy (Charles Eisenstein)
