Maria and I had a really fantastic hangout today with our great friend Gunther Sonnenfeld. You can now watch it on Youtube at a time convenient for yourself.
The full title of the hangout was Humans with the lights on: How can we transform the world through narratives and exponential growth? and we covered a huge amount of ground discussing narrative, storytelling, mythology, the hero’s journey, the experiencing of the revolutionary art of The Glasgow Boys and particularly the painting The Druids – Bringing in the Mistletoe, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, bringing a more spiritual sensibility into organisations, and also Gunther’s new venture Luman, which is bringing together some of the most evolutionary people, ideas, frameworks and tools to design the future, prototype it, and make it real.
We covered a huge amount of ground, and as I mention in the hangout, below you can find links to all the people, projects and web articles that we discuss, including this diagram below which we finish the hangout with.
Maria, Gunther and I really hope you enjoy the hangout. While explore spirituality, philosophical, artistic and mythical realms, we also look at what this means in practice today, developing new technologies and innovating in a world where people and planet matter.
