Dr Jim Garrison – Humanity Rising: Co-creating a Cultural and Spiritual Renaissance for our Time
What if breakdown can be a breakthrough?
Join Dr Jim Garrison for a roller coaster ride through the inspirational series of solution-oriented Humanity Rising conversations he has been hosting since the early summer – these are a real sign of hope in our chaotic times!
In the midst of the pandemic, humanity is rising all over the world and in all kinds of ways. Amsterdam made the decision to embrace Doughnut economics and place human well–being at the centre of their post-pandemic city planning. The people of Chile voted to throw out the repressive constitution of Pinochet and embrace gender equality in governance moving forward. At a time of immense global breakdown, people and organisations everywhere are breaking through.
Humanity Rising represents a movement of people and organizations coming together to take counsel on how to leverage crises into opportunities for human renewal and increased resilience to future challenges.
