Capra relates his personal journey of meeting and interacting with some of the leading contemporary thinkers and visionaries. What emerges is a wisdom packed dialogue about new ways of thinking and being. From Krishnamurti’s spiritual insight to Gregory Bateson’s intellectual prowess, Capra weaves an intricate and informative web of influences on his own pioneering work of bridging science and spirit. For anyone interested in the future, this is a conversation not to be missed. (hosted by Michael Toms)
