Join me in a weeklong course on the themes of The Patterning Instinct at Schumacher College, Totnes, Devon from Monday, 11 June to Friday, 15 June.

In this weeklong immersion course, which I will be co-leading with my partner, Elizabeth Ferguson, you will have the chance to join others in a deep exploration of our patterns of meaning.

We'll be exploring the underlying causes for our society's current crisis, investigate the hidden patterns of thought that form our own worldview, and discover the part each of us can play in helping transition our culture to a flourishing future.

This interactive course will take you on an “archaeology of the mind,” and invite an embodied immersion into what it might mean to live the patterns of flourishing. In addition to classroom-style lectures, we'll have fun, interactive workshops, and experiential practices including outings to the beautiful countryside around Totnes.

Course capacity is limited, so I encourage you to sign up as soon as possible.

Hope to see you there!

Listen to my interview with Ayana Young, For the Wild:

Most of humanity’s ailments can be traced back to a mind virus known to some Indigenous cultures as Wetiko. Wetiko is an Algonquin word for a cannibalistic spirit that is driven by greed, excess, and selfish consumption (in Ojibwa it is windigo, wintiko in Powhatan).

We unpack the history of Wetiko spirit and its relationship to capitalism- the culmination of humanity’s hyper individualistic self destruction. Rooted in history and patterning, we explore the ancient and primeval patriarchal drive towards violence and destruction, offering us an alternative way forward based on community, collaboration and collective divestment from Wetiko through reembodying intuition and feeling sense.

Listen to my interview with Terrence McNally:
"The right wing has not won on the issues, but by telling a grand story of America - a story that is false and based on a set of values that are driving civilization to a precipice. It’s been successful because there has been no coherent counter-narrative.” We look at that history and look ahead for a new story.”

Great article about John Wick and the important work being done by Marin Carbon Project to push the envelope on carbon farming. One of the paths promising humanity a flourishing future!

Brilliantly written piece by Ezra Klein of Vox on the twisted reasoning of Sam Harris, Charles Murray, and the allure of race science.
This is the kind of writing that truly enhances our socio-political discourse: reasoned, honest, & incisive.
Why, I continually ask myself, does Sam Harris—a seemingly intelligent, thoughtful, caring person with a following of millions—obsess so tormentedly on dead-end issues when there is so much bad stuff happening in the world that needs to be brought to people's attention? Such as climate breakdown, ecological overshoot, extreme inequalities of wealth, rise of right wing racist ideology... (the list goes on and on)...
