Eric Julien shares with us the teachings he received from the Kogi Indians, through their way of life and their durability. Intrigued by their way inspired by the living, their respect and harmony with the laws of life that have brought them more than 4000 years of sustainability, he wonders how to envisage an eco-modernity. The way to reconcile the wisdoms of the root peoples and the talents of our modernity. His original path of life challenges preconceived ideas and questions our representations and certainties.
Eric lives in the Drôme, where he helped to create the School of Nature and Knowledge. A geographer with a degree in Political Science, he is a consultant specialising in collective intelligence and change management. The "crisis" is above all a crisis of the "look", he likes to share, it calls "ingenuity". He often presents himself as an "explorer of interstices", in search of the possibilities of transforming people and organizations. His life and his research oscillate between our modernity and the tradition of the Kogi Indians, (Colombia), the bearers of these principles of the living, "which we must urgently reappropriate, to allow the emergence of the unborn".
Parts 1/3 :
- Eric Julien presents his life path
- Being in the flow of life
"Choosing to be happy is an act of political resistance. We are creators of values as a life force. »
Ecology not in the "mental" sense, but in the "everyday" sense, in the "lived" sense, in the "practical" sense, in the sense of "eco-modernity", i.e. a modernity that would be reconciled with the living. »
Part 2/3 :
- To be connected
- Learning to live in peace
"There is something of the order of a new social imaginary to be put in place; this social imaginary, perhaps it can go through what these societies have kept in their memory, perhaps...as the foundation of life: learning to live in peace. The brotherhood is written in the law of origins, there's no question about it."
