The Rebel Wisdom Digital Campfire is where members gather to join and take part in our interviews and dialogues, our practice sessions with top teachers and more. It is a place to find the others, to learn and to develop skills.
We have different calls for the different membership levels, Sensemakers can attend all sessions, Explorers are welcome to all our Monday calls, the Skills Academy and also the member-generated 'Crew Sessions'. Wise Rebels are invited to our monthly AMA. Scroll down to see all upcoming sessions!

This is a regular monthly AMA (ask me anything) session with Rebel Wisdom founder David Fuller and co-founder Alexander Beiner. They are an opportunity to ask any questions, about guests, about any of the films and topics featured on Rebel Wisdom, and also any questions about the Digital Campfire itself. All questions, criticisms and ideas welcome!
(Access: Wise Rebels, Explorers & Sensemakers)
Next Sessions: 24th May / 21st June
The Sensemaker Showcase is our flagship session for Sensemakers with a top interviewee(s). Typically lasting 75 minutes, you can submit questions for our guests, and join the conversation. We also often have an after-hours open discussion hosted by Campfire members, to stay and continue the conversation.

Joseph Henrich is professor of human evolutionary biology at Harvard University. His recent book ‘The Weirdest People in the World: How the West Became Psychologically Peculiar and Particularly Prosperous’ is a revolutionary look into the psychology and evolution of WEIRD cultures (Western, Educated, Industrialised, Rich, Democratic). In this talk we’ll explore why the WEIRD model is so important for understanding the shifts we’re seeing in culture, institutional trust and the meaning crisis.

Zak is an influential voice among those wrestling with the deep problems with the source code of our culture, and he is particularly focused on the problems of learning and education. We welcome Zak to this Digital Campfire event, where we will dive into his concept of a "Time Between Worlds".
His piece a year ago, "A War Broke out in Heaven" caused a stir, proposing that "We are being shaped by vast and complex forces into becoming new kinds of people."

Dr. Gregg Henriques is a Professor of Graduate Psychology and has developed a Unified Theory of Knowledge framework to bring together different areas of science and psychology that often contradict one another. In this talk he’ll be exploring whether academia is still the place to go to advance knowledge, or whether it’s too siloed and ideologically captured to meet the challenges of a complex world.
Monday 10th May @ 6pm UK / 1pm ET / 10am PT
Conversations from the Edge is a new series hosted by Layman Pascal, to explore esoteric and cutting edge perspectives, with an intelligent and critical lens.

Weds 26th May @ 8pm UK / 3pm ET / 12pm PT
Jeffrey Kripal is a legendary figure in consciousness studies, going back decades. In this Showcase we will be talking about his concept of "the Flip", which he describes an "experience that shows us what happens when we realise that consciousness is fundamental to the cosmos and not some random evolutionary accident or surface cognitive illusion; that everything is alive, connected, and 'one'."
