Deep down we know our strength lies in our togetherness, in our interconnectedness and interdependence. We are woven as cloth and find coherence and peacefulness when coming home to each other and those of all other tribes - the plants, the animals, the rocks, the insects, the fish, the seen and the unseen. Mac Macartney’s talk braids beauty, wildness, activism and the yearning pulse all humans have for a meaningful life, into a compelling story of belonging. It spreads a map at our feet and invites us to set a course, homeward bound.
Mac is an international speaker, writer and change-maker, and founder of the leadership-based social enterprise, Embercombe. Mentored by indigenous people over twenty years, he has acquired profound and original insights into questions preoccupying contemporary society. During this training and ever since, he has attempted to bring two worlds together – an ancient world-view that emphasises relationship, interdependence, and reverence for life with the significant challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century.
