Iain McGilchrist and Lyla June join The Deeper Dive, three new books from alumni, and the passing of Michael Dowd

November 22, 2023

Since the above graphic was crafted, Mark Boyle and Eve Annecke have completed our lineup of guests for 2024.  All offered, as ever, under inclusive, trust-based pricing.

Ensuring that remains so is all part of the work in setting these up, mind, so while I hope they go on for many years to come, it’s certainly not a given!  The future never is, as our alumni know well.

The Chelsea Green Foundation

On the occasion of David Fleming’s birthday, enrolments open for ‘Surviving the Future: The Deeper Dive’

offering, in partnership with Vermont’s Sterling College. 

And I can think of no better way to mark David Fleming’s birthday than to announce that the answer is now!
