Author Theodore Richards: The Great Re-imagining

TheodoreRichards-TheGreatReImagining

Author Theodore Richards will talk about his latest book.

http://theodorerichards.com/books/the-great-reimagining

Theodore Richard’s new book, The Great Re-imagining, explores the deep narratives that have brought us the brink of apocalypse and invites us to re-imagine our place in the world.

Please welcome educator and author, Theodore Richards. He has visited our group in the past and is sure to provide an enlightening evening.

Theodore Richards is a philosopher, poet, and novelist. As the founder of The Chicago Wisdom Project, editor of the online magazine Re-imagining: Education, Culture, World, and a board member of Homebound Publications and the Fox Institute, his work is dedicated to re-imagining education and creating new narratives about our place in the world. He has received degrees from various institutions, including the University of Chicago and The California Institute of Integral Studies, but has learned just as much studying the martial art of Bagua; teaching in various settings and students; and as a traveler from the Far East to the Middle East, from southern Africa to the South Pacific.

“These are the end times.” We hear this sentiment in one way or another from various sources, from the fundamentalist preacher to the scientist warning us of climate change. This is a time of economic uncertainty, political oppression and cultural unraveling.

Apocalypse, in the ancient world and today, is the experience of disconnection, of unraveling. It is when old gods are dying and the old stories no longer have meaning. Drawing from sources ranging from the ancient apocalyptic traditions to contemporary science.

The Great Re-imagining takes on our current apocalyptic moment, and dares us to imagine a new future, a new and universal cosmology, for which we have no obvious reference point, but which Richards provokes us to sense with wonder. This book is quite simply the manual for how to approach the apocalypse. Daring, visionary and blunt, it demands to be read.
