The next Windmill, on Tue 14th May, will be a talk by David Midgley on the work of revolutionary thinker Charles Eisenstein. Charles is best known for his radical advocacy of the idea of the Gift Economy in his book Sacred Economics; his earlier book The Ascent of Humanity is a far-reaching and profound analysis of the history and future of civilization from a unique perspective: the evolution of the human sense of self.
All Charles’ books are available for free download from his website, www.charleseisenstein.net. He has agreed in principle to give a Schumacher Lecture and weekend course for Schumacher North later in the year – watch this space!
The Windmill takes place at 91 Green Road, Leeds, LS6 4LE from 7pm. Please bring a small amount of food to share at the start. Or come later, in time for the start of activities around 7:30pm. At about 9pm there’s the option to leave and remaining Windmillers are welcome to carry on chatting until 10pm. Feel free to bring anyone you like – no need to RSVP.
