Sensemaker Showcase

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. 

Heather is an evolutionary biologist and co-host of the Dark Horse podcast with her husband Bret Weinstein. Now 'professor in exile' after famously being chased out of Evergreen College by a cancel culture mob. She says "The scientific process is a main theme in my teaching, and I strive to bring it to the foreground of students' worldviews, so that they become comfortable generating hypotheses for the patterns that they observe around them in the world, and are able to live investigated, conscious lives."

Heather Heying: Sensemaker Q&A

Heather Heying has spoken and written about multiple topics on Rebel Wisdom and elsewhere, including how evolutionary biology can explain complex social topics, how to create the conditions for genuine dialogue around difficult topics, from Evergreen to the IDW, and even asking the controversial question whether such a thing as ‘toxic femininity’ exists. This showcase session will be a discussion between Heather and Rebel Wisdom's David Fuller, followed by an open Q&A with all Sensemakers.

Weds 14th April @ 8pm UK / 3pm EST / 12pm PST

Zak Stein studied philosophy and religion at Hampshire College, and then educational neuroscience, human development, and the philosophy of education at Harvard University.

He is also co-Founder of the Consilience Project with Daniel Schmachtenberger

Zak Stein, Understanding a Time Between Worlds

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."

Weds 12th May, 8pm UK / 3pm EST / 12pm PST

I’m a Research Fellow at the Long Now Foundation where I study how institutions can endure for centuries and millennia. I write and speak on history, institutions, and strategy with a focus on exceptional leaders that create new social and political forms. 

Samo Burja - What is a Live Player?

Samo is a deep thinker with a talent for creating concepts that help make sense of the cultural landscape. One of these is the conception of 'Live Player', meaning a person or organisation capable of novelty, versus one only able to run existing scripts. In this Showcase we will discuss how this concept of Live Player helps to make sense of the cultural landscape, and talk about his "great founder theory" of social change.

Tues, 20th April @ 6PM UK / 1PM ET / 10AM PT

 

 

Tim Freke is an internationally respected authority on world spirituality and the bestselling author of more than 20 books, which have been translated into 15 languages. He is pioneering a new philosophy of awakening that has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. He has often been featured in the international media including the BBC and The History Channel. Tim appeared on Rebel Wisdom talking about 'The Split in the Western Soul'.

Tim Freke: Individualism to Unividualism

Tim is a philosopher and facilitator looking to shift from a culture of individualism to what he calls 'unividualism'. He says: "I want to explore a new worldview I believe can bring together science and spirituality into one coherent narrative, that is both intellectually rigorous and emotionally inspiring. The depths of spirituality in all traditions are concerned with an experience of awakening to a state of oneness. I want to suggest that the next evolution jump, which is taking place at a quickening pace in recent decades, is for human individuals to become ‘unividuals’ … conscious of unity with the universe."

12th April @ 8pm UK / 3pm EST / 12pm PST

Mary is a writer and journalist. She spent her 20s experimenting with intentional communities, gender nonconformity and unconventional relationship forms.

Her writing has been published by the New Statesman, The Spectator and Mail on Sunday, and she is a contributing editor at UnHerd.

Mary Harrington: Reactionary Feminism?

Mary recently took part in Rebel Wisdom's first 'Sex and Culture' event, where there was a great deal of interest in her concept of 'reactionary feminism'. She returns to Rebel Wisdom for a showcase event, in dialogue with Raven Connolly. She says: "The central contention of reactionary feminism is that the ideas of 'freedom' and 'progress' themselves are now delivering diminishing returns for all but a shrinking elite. And this is impacting especially severely on women, meaning that in order to remain true to the central task of feminism - advocating for women's political interests - feminists must turn against the theology of progress."

15th April @ 6pm UK / 1pm EST / 10am PST

Philosophical Journeys & RW Book Club

Every month philosopher and author Jules Evans takes us on a philosophical journey, applying some of the timeless wisdom of the past to current cultural dilemmas. Past sessions have included "Existentialism and the Meaning Crisis", and "Aldous Huxley and the Human Potential Movement", and these sessions are available as recordings for members. We have also just launched the Rebel Wisdom book club. We will choose a book a month in advance, to give time to read it in advance of the session, and then we will discuss it together. (For Explorers and Sensemakers)

Philosophical Journeys: 'Should we Hack Death?

For many wealthy tech oligarchs, defeating death and hacking longevity has become an obsession. Is this something that we should be trying? What are the ethical issues that emerge if it proves possible, but limited to the super wealthy? What does it say about our current culture, and our collective phobia of death and dying? Jules will draw on philosophers like John Gray (Straw Dogs) and the Russian Cosmists.

19th April @ 8pm UK / 3pm EST / 12pm PST

The Book, by Alan Watts.

"Explaining man's role in the universe as a unique expression of the total universe, and interdependent on it, Alan Watts offers a new understanding of personal identity. It reveals the mystery of existence, presenting and alternative to the feelings of alienation that is prevalent in Western society, and a vision of how we can come to understand the cosmic self that is within every living thing."

RW Book Club. Alan Watts & 'The Book' with Tim Lott

For our second edition of the Rebel Wisdom Book Club we will be looking at one of Alan Watts's most influential works, "The Book: On the Taboo of Knowing Who You Are". Our host Jules Evans will be joined by author Tim Lott, an expert in Alan Watts's work, to discuss a book that had a huge impact on his thinking. If you wish to read the book before the conversation, a PDF is available here

Building Collective Intelligence with Kai Mantsch

If we want to tap into our collective intelligence, we have to develop our own agency and awareness. The first stage in accessing coherence and collective intelligence is to learn to track our own inner state first, and these are skills we just aren't taught. This four part series is designed to give members a chance to expand their somatic and emotional awareness through guided meditation, and interactive exercises.

Next sessions: 30th March, 13th April

Improv Your Life with Pippa Evans

Improv is known as a hilarious way to create comedy content, however, it is also an excellent personal and collective intelligence tool. Improvisation creates a space where we explore our ideas to the very limit of what we think is possible and experiment with how to be an individual amongst the collective. In this session we will explore building on each other's ideas, giving up control and trusting the flow state.

Next sessions: 27th April, 8th June
