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. 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. Please give yourself the gift of downloading wisdom with these four Programs selected from our deep archive. of timeless wisdom.

What makes power tick and how does it become entrenched and abused? Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, so the saying goes. What lies beneath power? Understanding the nature of power can help us move towards a world of freedom, justice and economic equity for all. In this dialogue, Robert Fuller points to a hidden form of discrimination that everyone knows but no one sees, discrimination based on rank. Read more »

The idea that success in the 21st century will depend on access to information is hype; it’s nonsense.  There is enough information–we have an information overload.  Success and survival in the 21st century will depend on ecological awareness and on new ideas of how to change our technology and ways of doing business.  Our children need to learn values, ideas, knowledge and wisdom–not just how to use computers to access more and more information.  Read more »
