Sacred Economics - public lecture Edinburgh, Scotland
Sacred Economics

Chair: David Somervell, Transition Edinburgh

   "In the beginning was the Gift: in the archetypal beginning of the world, at the beginning of our lives, and in the infancy of the human species. Gratitude therefore is natural to us, so primal, so elemental that it is very difficult to define. Perhaps it is the feeling of having received a gift, and the desire to give in turn."

We live in an abundant world. why do we experience such scarcity, anxiety and insecurity around money? Why are we driving the planet to ruin and how can we change course?
Join the visionary author Charles Eisenstien for an exploration of practical solutions, starting on the personal level and extending to the political. At stake in today's crisis, says Charles, is nothing less than the driving narratives of our civilisation. Everything is changing - including our relationships, our worldview, our inner lives, as well as our social and economic systems.

CHARLES EISENSTEIN is a speaker and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. His viral short films and essays online have established him as a genre-defying social philosopher and countercultural intellectual. Eisenstein graduated from Yale University in 1989 with a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy and spent the next ten years as a ChineseEnglish translator. The author of  Sacred Economics  and  Ascent of Humanity, he currently lives in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.

This public lecture in Edinburgh will be a one hour talk followed by a Q & A session.
