From Decline and Collapse to Transformation and Potential

In order to foster resilience and ingenuity in these times we need to replace our obsession with decline and collapse with a focus on transformation and potential.

In this conversation with meta-cognitive teacher and author Bonnitta Roy we explore the impact of our subjectivity on the personal and collective levels, moving beyond the dominant models of change, shifting from complex adaptive systems thinking to complex potential states, types of conflict, the core-communal and cosmopolitan self, and the potential in the decline of the West.
