Looby Macnamara launches her 4th Book
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

Corona Virus Update (edited 12th October 2020)
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. In 2020 we have run courses with both on-line and face-to-face elements and some which have been all face-to-face. We are currently thinking about how we run our 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 and Summer and can be outside. We hope to have dates up in the coming weeks.
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 email@example.com 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.
