The Need for Deep Transformation with Jeremy Lent
December 10, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 9:45 am AST
Author Jeremy Lent explores why a fundamental transformation of our cultural psyche is pivotal in fostering a sustainable future.
Join Rob West in conversation with author Jeremy Lent about how incremental fixes to our current problems, no matter how beneficial in the short term, will not be sufficient. The transformation our society needs has to reach into the deepest parts of our cultural psyche, shifting the way we think and feel about the fundamentals of humanity, nature, and civilization. Jeremy’s upcoming book, The Web of Meaning: Integrating Science and Traditional Wisdom to Find Our Place in the Universe (June 2021) lays out a fundamentally different and integrated worldview of connectedness, which could foster a flourishing and sustainable future for humanity on a regenerated Earth.
