What to Expect

Rebel Wisdom was founded on the conviction that we are living through a civilisational-level crisis of ideas as our old operating systems break down.

We believe the medical and financial crisis we’re experiencing is just the beginning of an unfolding meta-crisis, that is only going to accelerate over the next months and years. We are living through a time of unprecedented change, danger, tragedy and opportunity.

To become more resilient in the face of this change, we first need to be able to make sense of what's going on. That's why we've invited some of the brightest sensemakers and change-makers we've had on the channel to speak at this event.

As well as improving our sensemaking, we need to learn how to meet uncertainty and relate to one another while under pressure. This includes learning how to know ourselves and our environment through mindfulness, coming into our bodies through yoga and martial arts, learning how to regulate our nervous systems with our breath, and experimenting with new ways of relating.

We've spent the last two years making films and running events to showcase the most rebellious minds, ideas and practices in the world, in the hope of mapping out routes like these toward a new operating system, for individuals and culture.

This crisis has made real many of the issues we've been exploring; from the systemic fragility of our institutions to the need for paradigms that can embrace complexity in almost every area of life. To meet the challenges and come together in the ways we need to, we believe it's essential to create new intellectual frameworks, and combine them with ancient practices of connection, focus, resilience and transformation.

We'll make sense of the unfolding crisis with the help of Jamie Wheal, Diane Musho Hamilton, David Fuller & Alexander Beiner. We'll learn how to create anti-fragile communities and networks from Sara Ness and Rich Bartlett, and learn tips for personal resilience practices from a whole team of world-class facilitators (see full bios below).

The day will begin at 2:30pm BST / 9:30am ET / 6:30am PT and end at 10pm BST / 5pm ET / 2pm PT. Detailed schedule coming soon - the talks and framing of the day will be from 2:30pm BST until 6:00pm BST, after which you'll have a choice of different workshops on offer. 

We are running the event for free and will not take any profit from it. If you are in a financial position to do so, we ask that you consider donating - we will use the money generated to pay our facilitators - many of whom rely on face-to-face retreats that aren't possible right now - as well as covering a small amount of hosting and logistics costs. You can donate via DonorBox or on the PayPal button at the end of this section.
