TEDxWWF - Tim 'Mac' Macartney - A Line In The Sand

About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)Drawing on profound and challenging experiences gained when mentored and trained by a group of metis Native Americans, Mac uses story and powerful imagery to awaken and evoke our innate wild nature.Speaking to a deeper, more ancient part of our tribal memory, he braids beauty, wildness, and the 'heathen' pulse of the human spirit into a single narrative. It is a call, a paean, a heart-song, to the many millions of us who still stand on the sidelines and passively watch as our planet is slowly, systematically, and meticulously tamed, caged, and broken. Clever, we undoubtedly are, but wise we are not. Not yet.Mac will ask us some beguilingly simple questions and offer an invitation. An invitation which, if accepted, will take us into unknown territory, to the edge of our courage, and perhaps, one step closer to the world of our longing.
