Northern Schumacher Lecture 2013

Charles Eisenstein

Sacred Economics: Money and the Crisis of Civilization

7 p.m., Friday November 22nd, Tempest Anderson Hall, York

NOW ON YouTube!  SEE BELOW FOR LINKS.

Charles Eisenstein, visionary author of two widely acclaimed books, spoke in York about his latest ideas for tackling the multiple crises – economic, political and above all environmental – that are pushing humanity into a radically different paradigm of economics, science and society.  Far from despairing about the widespread culture of separation, exploitation and self-interest, in this inspiring lecture he offered new and practical ways to challenge them and, instead, create a world where generosity, compassion and a sense of the sacred become the major themes of our economic relationships. A rare chance to hear and dialogue with one of the most insightful and visionary thinkers alive today.

Charles Eisenstein’s books – The Ascent of Humanity (2007) and Sacred Economics (2011) are available for free download from his website: www.charleseisenstein.net
