With Mac Macartney
– the first in a series of talks and conversations exploring The Law of nature
Join us for this free introductory talk with Mac as we begin a deep exploration into what it means to be human in these uncertain times, what it would take to truly belong on this earth. How we might start the task of restoring balance and connection between ourselves the rest of the living natural world?
Over the next few months Mac will be hosting this conversation, bringing together the elders and spokes-people of western and indigenous traditions around the world. 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 part of the family of all life.
We will be looking to reveal and remember The Law
Western Science, capitalism, colonialism, extractivism … all these 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, in conversation with a circle of law-holders and seekers around the world, and you.
In 1999 Mac founded Embercombe. At which time he was also the founder and CEO of a leadership consultancy for corporate executives operating internationally between 1989-2005. Over a period of twenty years Mac was mentored and coached by a group of Native American teachers. During this training and ever since he has attempted to bring two worlds together – an ancient world view that emphasises relationship, interdependence, and reverence for life with the huge challenges and equally huge opportunities of the 21st Century.
