Spotlight: Why It Matters To Reclaim Our Connection To Living Systems


Graphic and composite by New Dimensions

In these perilous and most challenging times we are bombarded with public conversations about where we should be focusing our attention. Because it is coming at us from all sides, it’s more important than ever to take a moment and listen to our wise elders: Physicist Fritjof Capra, is a whole systems thinker, who talks of the interconnectedness of all life. Also, the late Physicist F. David Peat poses this most important question: How can you be sure that the good works you do actually have the positive outcome you hope for? John Seed conducts deep ecology workshops throughout the world and in 1995 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal by the Australian Government for services to conservation and the environment. He is compelling and entertaining in his presentation to help us remember that environment is not something separate from us. And, another Physicist, Robert Fuller helps us to see clearly what makes power tick and how it becomes entrenched and abused. All four of these deep dialogues will be helpful in navigating these tumultuous times.
