Speaking/Learning Opportunities


Re-imagining Lab is a place for people who believe that the stories of the Modern world no longer sustain us, bringing us to brink of catastrophe—ecologically, economically, culturally. Our troubles cannot be solved merely through technology, or even politics; rather, we need to re-imagine what it means to be human. We seek new stories, new poetics, new ideas—and we put our ideas and stories into action. This work requires the wisdom of those at the margins, and by those with the courage to imagine a new world.

Theodore Richards offers classes, workshops, and lectures that draw from the wisdom of both modern science and the ancient spiritual traditions to help empower people to re-imagine who they are and their place in the world. Click here to learn more.

Re-imagine Education

We simply don’t know what tomorrow will look like, so the skills required for tomorrow can’t be easily packaged. Tomorrow’s leaders need to be creative, adaptable, and curious enough to continue to learn and change. We need to re-imagining education in order to empower people to re-imagine our world.

The Chicago Wisdom Project has delivered holistic models of learning to young people and offers workshops for teachers and community leaders and can consult with you to adapt any subject to our models. Click here to learn more.
