Reverence for Life: Welcoming Ourselves Back Home

Saturday, 14 January 2023 @ 1:00 PM EST - 2:00 PM EST

ZOOM Link: https://sine-network.zoom.us/j/89846571811

“Living systems thinking” is widespread among Original Peoples and was common to our ancestors. Such ways of life embody a reverence for all life, a feeling of belonging and joyful participation as equals among our plant and animal relatives, and helped us harmonize with the forces and flows of our world for tens of thousands of generations, growing local opportunity, abundance, and peace.

Contemporary evolutionary thinking has converged on these same ancient understandings. Dr. Tamsin Woolley-Barker, Evolutionary Primatologist and author of Teeming, shares powerful insights about human nature and the nature of life, insights that beg for a radical change in everything we do.

The movement to re-anchor our designs in the realities of Living Systems is growing. Biological metaphors like Regeneration and Ecosystems are hot, and the COP15 on Biodiversity even resulted in a profound decision: we will preserve 30% of Earth’s ecosystems by 2030…and those lands can and must include human beings. We are being welcomed back home. This is the time to act boldly.

How will we move forward together?
