Culture is collective. It will take collective action to make the radical changes required for cultural continuity in the Western world.
In my view, these radical steps require large-scale political change – A Paradigm Shift. These five dynamics of cultural continuity are integrated, so we have to work on all of them at the same time.
Believing – Reclaiming Cosmology
Relating with Living Earth as Kin
Regenerating – the Maternal Principle
Sharing – The Law of Generosity
- It will take courage. Who are the courageous leaders of massive change in our world today?
- Our schools will need to develop a generation of visionary and creative leaders for this massive change project.
- I welcome your comments as a way of expanding the ideas and compiling the wisdom that already exists out there.
Are you interested in contributing to the research?
In Spiraling Story of Culture and Climate, I identified these five dynamics in the cultures that regenerated after a historical climate event based on a literature review. We need more research to confirm my hypothesis and develop the theory. You are welcome to add links or readings in the feedback box below.
