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: 26th April / 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.
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.

Jamie is a long term friend of Rebel Wisdom and returns to launch his new book 'Recapture the Rapture, Rethinking God, Sex, and Death in a World That's Lost Its Mind', with a series of surprise guests.
The book is divided into three sections, 'Choose Your Own Apocalypse', 'The Alchemist Cookbook' and 'Ethical Cult Building'. It is a call to action, an open source toolkit for individual and societal transformation.

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
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 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 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."
