Why and how do we create patterns of meaning out of the vast expanse of existence?
In this conversation Jeremy and Amisha explore the world history of our separation from nature, the human instinct to bring meaning and pattern into life, and how we work with the emotions that arise from this, so we can create a flourishing, beautiful sustainable future.
"Optimism and pessimism are both
cop outs, but hope is a state of mind that things can change.
Whether we think they will or not there is that possibility." ~
In this episode Amisha sits down with author and integrator Jeremy Lent. Jeremy's recent book 'The Patterning Instinct' explores the way humans have made meaning from the cosmos from hunter-gatherer times to the present day.
From psychedelic awakenings in Cambridge student squats, to fleeing Britain for California to "see something great", Jeremy followed a deep knowing that there was something much more to life than what he was experiencing.
Jeremy's current research, writing and teaching is driven by the desire to marry his intellectual understanding with what he feels in his body to be true. He seeks an integrated understanding of the rules that govern the cosmos, inside and outside of us.
