Dr. Robert Gilman is a man of many talents.  As a Princeton-trained astrophysicist, sustainability pioneer, engaged citizen, and cultural change catalyst, he is adept at making sense of complexity and discerning the signal from the noise in most territories of life. 

He founded the Context Institute in the 70s to explore more sustainable ways of living, and is now on a mission to create a global community of empowered change agents to help make a more graceful transition from the Empire Era to the Planetary Era (he explains those eras in the podcast) more graceful.    

This requires understanding and embodying what he calls the 3 harmonies:

  1. The harmony within
  2. The harmony others
  3. The harmony with nature

In his course, Bright Future Now, Robert facilities quarterly cohorts who meet virtually for six weeks to start learning and practicing the 3 harmonies, gain tools for the journey and a better understanding of our cultural context within this transition time.

As a recent graduate of the course I can’t recommend it enough.  Not a day goes by where I don’t incorporate the content in my thinking and doing.
