  • The Law
    30/03/2022 - 21/12/2022
    7:00 pm

For a year, we will be hosting a conversation that brings together the elders and spokes-people of western and indigenous wisdom traditions, those who believe that the only way forward for human-kind is to remember our place within the rest of nature.

Together, we will be searching for guidelines and principles that remind us how to fit within our ecological niche, as individuals, as one unified human species, and most importantly, as a part of the family of all life.

We will be looking to remember The Law of Nature

Western Science, capitalism, colonialism, extractivism … the processes that have led to our separation from the natural world and each other, have caused us to forget that the only one way that we can survive on this planet is to respect The Law of Nature.

Where is this Law held? Is it held in the earth-based and wisdom traditions?

Can we recover it by deep listening to the land and the more-than-human world itself? Is it lodged in our collective memory as a human species? What are the principles upon which the law is based? Is the Law the same wherever we are on the Earth, or is it different in different places?

These are some of the questions we will be asking, please join us.

The Law is a series of 6 conversations that will be held online. We have chosen this format so that as many people as possible can join this crucial discussion at this time, and also that we can hear from people around the world. Each session will be 2 hours long, and will include speakers, sharings and time for discussion.

There will be a community forum for participants to stay in touch with each other.

The course will consist of 6 online sessions hosted by Mac Macartney between March and December 2022

Session dates:
30th March
4th May
22nd June
21 September
9 November
21 December
