Cultural Emergence

A Toolkit for Transforming Ourselves and the World.

The 4th Book Book by Looby Macnamara 

(Over 300 pages filled with stories, illustrations and activities)

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.
It shows us how to:
• Expand our thinking and possibilities

• Better understand where problems come from and, by using radical reflection on the root causes, create successful healing strategies

• Embody the learning and effectively embed the changes in our lives into new ways of interacting and being

• Build our individual and collective resilience in turbulent times and support ourselves to proactively adjust to transitions – whether they are personal life changes or collective challenges such as climate change

• Use the tools to create the conditions for emergence, informing the creation of cultures of care, connection, peace, health, effectivenessand trust.

Cultural Emergence is visionary, practical, wise and simple to use. It is a message of hope with tools for empowerment. Filled with stories of people around the world who have benefited using this approach, it inspires us with possibilities.

It is a timely, much-needed book that has the potential to be useful to everyone and enable deep and radical transformation.

If you want them signed to anyone specifically please let me know. And if you want to order multiple copies, please do so and I can send them together and refund you postage (this is easier than having numerous paypal buttons).

Social permaculture leader Looby Macnamara invites us to co-create a powerful collective vision, starting from our own unique context and spiralling outward into our communities. this visionary book guides us toward a much needed transformation of deeper connection to ourselves, each other and the world we inhabit.
