Event Description

For those seeking insights and allies to help themselves and their localities through profound change.

The annual Deeper Dive offers a long moment — an 8-week self-paced course — to slow down, pull back, and explore responses as part of a small global community, among and alongside some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers.

Maybe you’ve taken our course A Path Through Tumultuous Times, or independently encountered the tantalizing vision held out in the late David Fleming’s book Surviving the Future: Culture, Carnival and Capital in the Aftermath of the Market Economy.

Maybe you’re now among those eager to go further: applying, questioning, and reforging his principles in the context of the varied realities we are facing today in our diverse home communities.

If so, then The Deeper Dive is for you. Whether you’re already hard at work on responses to our times or seeking your calling, this is an annually curated space for reorienting, recharging and plotting together. From your own home, as part of an international community.

So, guided by Shaun Chamberlin, we’ll gather with some of the most compelling thinkers and doers on Earth — the diverse likes of Vandana Shiva, Mark Boyle, Isabelle Frémeaux, Nate Hagens, Sherri Mitchell, Rob Hopkins, Tim DeChristopher and Stephen Jenkinson will be joining us — to discuss with them why they've chosen to walk the paths they do.

As Fleming wrote, “Do nothing that matters without consulting a conversation”. So now we want to go deeper, together. And numbers will be limited, to keep the conversations accessible and meaningful.

Steve, thanks for the question! I forgot to include the link to registration, which is now added.  The times for the live webinars are to be scheduled, but there is a lot of content available for each student to access at their convenience.

I see this is on January 9, but I don't see a time. How will this work?
