Webinar Presentation New Story for Earth

Webinar presentation that puts forward a New Story for Earth that allows us to live a new worldview of interconnectedness; rather than independence as per the old paradigm.
Hildur Jackson, co-author of the book “Ecovillage Living, Restoring the Earth and Her People”, presents information found in the Gaia Education EDE curriculum, including:

• Understanding why the existing worldview of separation no longer serve humanity well.
• Exploring what a new story could look like.
• Pointing out how and where it is happening all over the planet right now.
• A single page handout with Hildur’s New Story for you to print and post on your fridge or the bathroom will be provided.

Webinar Presentation New Story for Earth

  1. 1. Gaia Education At the Cutting-Edge of Sustainability Education The New Story Living a worldview of interconnectedness December 13, 2014 Presented by HildurJacksonPresented by HildurJackson hildurjackson@gaia.org www.gaiaeducation.net info@gaiaeducation.net
  2. 2. Who am I? • Hildur Jackson. 72 years old • Live on Duemosegård, a 4 winged farm, Copenhagen, Denmark with Ross Jackson, daughter- in law, Rie and two granddaughters, Maia and Silke • Celebrating Hildurs 70 years birthday with 3 sons, two brothers and their wives and all grandchildren www.gaiaeducation.net
  3. 3. What is a worldview? • Cartesian/Newtonian paradigm, dominated European culture for over 300 years, and is still the dominant way of looking at the world by most, but not all, scientists. In this view, the universe is seen as a mechanical clock, gradually unwinding, with no divine plan behind it. Science and religion (matter and mind) were split in two separated areas. We are separated in subjects and objects. A paradigm of separation. • Characteristic of the emerging worldview is the concept of• Characteristic of the emerging worldview is the concept of interconnectedness of all things, consistent with Heisenberg’s principle, which was confirmed experimentally in 1982. Oneness, unity. We now know that subatomic particles separated by arbitrary distances in the universe can be in direct contact, even though such instant communication should not be possible according to the theory of relativity which states that nothing can move faster than the speed of light. We are not separated in subjects and objects. This is a systemic view of life. The whole is more than a sum of the parts. We study relationships not parts. We are part of selfregulating living networks. Quality not quantity. www.gaiaeducation.net
  4. 4. My personal awakening My mother always said: Our human condition is “the lust of the flesh and the irreparable loneliness of the soul.” She separated matter from mind- and suffered from being a woman in a society where men were competing, women took care of the home fulfilling children’s’ need for love. She was without education and recognition. I knew as a child that I needed to deal with this. I became a lawyer to be able to compete and make a living. And then later after the up rise in 1968 sitting with two baby boys,then later after the up rise in 1968 sitting with two baby boys, studied cultural sociology to find out what human nature was and if we could create a better society. If there were other options. My big question was: do we have to compete or can we cooperate? Coordinated the The Nordic Alternative Campaign in the 19980ties. 100 grassroots movements worked with the scientific community to solve the global, ecological and social problems. Gaia Trust, GEN and Gaia Education are birthing a new story, a culture of Oneness www.gaiaeducation.net

Yang • Now is time for us to as humans• Now is time for us to as humans to decide how we want to live with our fellow human beings and nature in a responsible way. Yin. • Ecovillages and local communities become the focus • Technology and economics should adapt to and support this lifestyle www.gaiaeducation.net

  8. 8. The new story: A spiritual worldview of interdependence and oneness All Life is one and intimately interrelated. We influence each other and are dependent on each other all over the planet. We are one with nature, plant and animal systems. Every single person is responsible for the wholeness and can influence it. This is a new spiritual paradigm to replace a materialistic with great implications. It was it. This is a new spiritual paradigm to replace a materialistic with great implications. It was formulated about 100 years ago by science in the west, but ages ago in the East by “the perennial philosophy”. It is now ready to become the foundation of a new global culture How do we get there? www.gaiaeducation.net
  9. 9. Humans need to change - We need to change the world. • In people: Love is our birthright. We can and must develop love in ourselves and among us. • In nature and society: Competition and cooperation We need to save 3 billion years of evolution. We need to create global justice www.gaiaeducation.net
