Lennart Hennig: The re-indiginization of culture | Benjamin Freud, Ph.D.

May 5, 2023

What would it take for us to embrace decay as means to creating new life?

In this episode of the Coconut Thinking podcast, I speak with Lennart Hennig. Lennart is a founder, teacher, and facilitator. He explores the edges of individual and collective development through the angles of consciousness, embodiment, safety, trauma, metaphysics, philosophy, and deep ecology, using an integral framework of the whole, undivided cosmos. This is a conversation about regeneration, about appreciating that there can be no white without black, no life without death, no change without composting. We discuss:

🥥 How spaces are opening up in our collective consciousness to bring forth Western Science and ancient wisdoms;

🥥 How life and death are the same and lead to composting for new living systems to emerge;

🥥 That success might just be obsolescence because that would signify that something/one has reached their purpose and can become something/one else.
