Bruce Parry: Tribal Insights – Power and Revolution

Bruce will reveal what it is like to live with people who exist in a world without leaders, shamans or even competition. 
Did you know that for 90% of our time on the planet, humankind lived as equals without hierarchy? Bruce Parry has lived with tribal people the world over and has much to share. Bruce will reveal what it is like to live with people who exist in a world without leaders, shamans, or even competition. He will tell us of the tools such people use to maintain societal balance, and most significantly, how they came to create this type of society in the first place. This is a story of how to disarm power on a universal scale. It is a rekindling of the narrative that once held us all in balance, and how it could return once again. How can we regenerate our communities, our relationships to each other and to nature, by integrating insights from indigenous people that have lived in harmony with their bio-regions for millennia? Can we replace our hierarchical systems, inherently out of step with natural processes, with social networks inspired by indigenous tribal people and the reciprocal flows we observe within ecosystems?
