Looby Macnamara launches her 4th Book

Cultural Emergence:

A Toolkit for Transforming Ourselves and the World

New Book is Here!

Looby Macnamara, international thought leader and teacher, introduces ‘Cultural Emergence’, a framework and toolkit that enables us to design the world we want to live in. It activates healing and revolutionises our approach to creating life-sustaining and regenerative cultures.

Drawing upon the lineages of indigenous wisdom, permaculture design and systems thinking, Cultural Emergence is a profoundly effective toolkit for creating a new understanding of culture.

Cultural Emergence should be on the must-read list for all change makers

Our big vision & how we are making steps towards it

Our big vision is for an abundant and fair world where Earth and people are treated with respect.

Our mission (i.e. our positive steps to reach this big vision) is to provide inspiration, motivation and tools to enable people to be proactive in growing the ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Shares.

Looby Macnamara and Chris Evans are highly experienced facilitators, designers and authors. We have both dedicated our lifetime's work to developing and sharing regenerative solutions for people and planet. We create learning environments that enable and empower people to bring forth their own gifts and wisdom to manifest positive change in their lives and communities. We run courses at our training and demonstration centre, Applewood Permaculture Centre as well as online and internationally.

Corona Virus Update (edited 29th September 2021)

Like all of you we are living in a world where we now have the constant extra element to accommodate for when we schedule and plan our courses at Applewood. We have safely run in person courses in 2021, so that we can all feel safe, maximise learning and keep the social elements we all need and appreciate an integral part of our courses. We are fortunate that most of our courses take place in Spring, Summer and early Autumn and can be outside. We hope to to do the same in 2022 and have published dates for all our courses in the hope we can continue to build on this year. 

If when we get to the time of the course we have to cancel, we will offer the option of a full refund. If you have to drop out because you are ill or having to self isolate, we will also offer a full refund and you can always transfer your fees to another course.

E-mail Emma at if you would like to book on or be kept updated about a specific course and do sign up for our news letter to be kept up-to-date with all our news and coming course dates.  Sign up to our news letter here.
