We’re delighted to announce that Local Futures’ founder/director Helena Norberg-Hodge will participate in a 3-day online event called Economy, Ecology and Spirit organized by the Contemplative Studies Program. The webinar with Helena will be on Wednesday, May 20th on the topic of:
‘Going Local: Hope in a Time of Crisis’
From globalization to localization. From fear to hope.
How can we build a more sustainable and equitable future together?
Conference description courtesy of the Contemplative Studies Program website:
‘The global COVID-19 pandemic has triggered widespread systems collapse. While the trauma effects of death, loss and economic hardship will be felt the world over, within the crisis there is also an opportunity for each of us to reassess our values, spark latent creativity, and inspire a new vision to rebuild systems far more sustainable, equitable and effective for future generations.
This lecture series brings together dynamic visionaries working at the intersection of economics, ecology and spirituality to teach us about basic economic principles, the limitations of the current economic system now on life support, alternative economic insights and practices based on sacred wisdom cultures and beyond, and practical steps we can each take to participate in and hasten the transition towards, a new, spiritually oriented economic paradigm.‘
- May 13th, John Perkins: Transforming the Jaguar – what shamanic wisdom can teach us about the Covid-19 crisis and beyond;
- May 27th, Alnoor Ladha: Sacred Activism in the Kali Yuga – six key pillars to post-capitalism.
Registration is free and you will receive access to all three webinars plus recordings.
