9:00 am – 10:30 am

On behalf of the Resilience Funders Network, Impact Trust and Omega, you are invited to join us for an illuminating 75-minute conversation with renowned author and epochal thinker Jeremy Lent, set against the symbolic backdrop of the Equinox – a time which reminds us of the delicate balance within our world and ourselves. The conversation will explore the key ideas of Jeremy’s recent epic work, “Web of Meaning”.

“Web of Meaning” challenges readers to reconsider and reframe the narrative of separation that has dominated Western thought and that is at the root of the ecological and social crises we face today. It offers a revolutionary perspective on the profound interconnectedness of humanity, nature, and the cosmos.

Drawing from a rich tapestry of sources—including systems biology, cognitive science, and indigenous wisdom—Lent argues for an integrative worldview based on the principle of Li, a concept borrowed from Chinese philosophy that signifies the dynamic order and pattern inherent in the natural world. He proposes that, by aligning human systems and values with this understanding of Li, we can forge a sustainable and meaningful path forward.

“Web of Meaning” serves as both a critique of reductionist thinking and a celebration of the complex, interconnected web of life. It invites readers to embark on a transformative journey toward a worldview where care, compassion, and cooperation are guiding principles, offering hope for a future in which humanity and the planet can thrive together.

As we navigate these critical times, Jeremy’s insights provide a much-needed roadmap toward an ecological civilisation—a theme that deeply resonates with the urgent call for a radical rethinking of our assumptions in creating a sustainable future. This will be explored more deeply in Jeremy’s next book, but some advance discussion will form part of this conversation.

Join us on the Equinox, March 20th, 2024, at 9am PST / 12 noon EST / 4pm UK / 5pm CET to have the chance to listen, engage and ask questions to gain deeper understanding of how we can collectively foster a sustainable, interconnected world. Register in advance on zoom. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Jeremy Lent is an author, speaker, and pioneering synthesiser of natural and social sciences, recognised for his profound contributions to understanding the patterns underlying human history and the path forward for human civilisation. Through his writings and speeches, Lent presents…
