Publisher's Synopsis

Post capitalist philanthropy is a paradox in terms. A paradox is the appropriate starting place for the complex, entangled, messy context we find ourselves in as a species.' The authors take us on a journey from the history of wealth accumulation to the current logic of late-stage capitalism - and ultimately to the lived possibilities of other ways of knowing, sensing and being that can usher in life-centric models. This 'ontological shift', as they call it, into new possibilities is at the heart of their work. Creating new-ancient-emerging realities is not simply about how we redistribute wealth or 'fight power', but rather, how we perceive and embody our actions in relationship to a dynamic, animistic world and cosmos. Their book is a result of decades of deep personal inquiry and practice, as well as lifelong engagement with activists, philanthropists, philosophers, social scientists, cosmologists and wisdom keepers. The authors, Alnoor and Lynn, are co-directors of The Transition Resource Circle, a group focused on the broader transition from our current meta-crisis to adjacent possible futures. TRC seeks to work with resources and resource holders to alchemize and liberate capital to be in service to Life. They work through circle ways - 'e.g. non-hierarchical, embodied cognition approaches, psycho-spiritual practices to move from a culture of entitlement to ways which honor the multiple entanglements of historical precedents, our respective lineages & karmic storylines, and what future beings (including ourselves) require for reconciliation and healing.' TRC focuses on philanthropy as it has the potential to play a critical role in rebalancing wealth, power and historical injustices.
