  • Greetings Pachamama Peeps,
    I am so excited to launch my Passion Project inspired by Pachamama Alliance, Drawdown, Touching the Jaguar, Lynne Twist and many others. Rarely have I felt so aligned or on purpose, or if I’m honest, vulnerable with possibility. As a committed sacred activist, I love to teach about sacred reverence for the Earth and humanity. I believe this new Zoom class brings it all together in a dynamic and relevant way.

    Ultimately, we can take the steering wheel and drive the changes that regenerate people and planet by aligning our choices with our values and holding ourselves accountable, we can learn to Live in Harmony. Every moment is an opportunity to make a clear of right action. The only appropriate response to life being in crisis on the planet is to aim to be of service in Earth’s healing. When women rise, all of humanity is lifted!

    Living in Harmony: Regenerating People and Planet
    A powerful, multi-media Zoom class (for women)
    6 Mondays for 90 min from 6:30-8:00 PM PST

  • Hi Denise, Welcome to Asheville. I would like to connect with you when I return from Michigan next week. I will touch base with you when I get back. We could meet for a walk, or something. I live in east Asheville. Talk soon! And have a great weekend.

  • Hi everyone, I just moved back to Asheville and look forward to connecting with this group! I grew up in the Raleigh area and went to UNCA about a decade ago before moving out to NM and CA for a few years each. Most of my work has been in the field of international education, but I've become more engaged in climate issues in the past few years inspired by the momentum of the movement and my own experiences witnessing the environmental and community destruction caused by extreme climate change and inequality.

    I participated in a number of Pachamama Alliance events and workshops in San Francisco and appreciate their holistic approach to creating a more sustainable world. Last year I collaborated with one of their outreach team members along with the director at ClimateMama (based in NY) on a project as part of my graduate program focused on expanding participation of young families and working age adults in climate action.

    I'm excited to be back in WNC and hope to get better acquainted with local climate orgs soon. Of course it's been tougher to meet people and connect with the state of the pandemic, but I look forward to hearing about any outdoor and/or virtual meetings happening in the near future!

    Take care,
    Denise

    Nature’s Best Hope
    presented by Doug Tallamy, T. A. Baker Professor of Agriculture, Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware.

    Hosted by Multifaith Alliance of Climate Stewards, Hood College and Envision Frederick County

    Recent headlines about global biodiversity declines and three billion fewer birds in North America are a bleak reality check about how ineffective our current landscape designs have been at sustaining the plants and animals that sustain us.

    The good news is that none of this is inevitable. Doug Tallamy will discuss simple steps that each of us can and must take to reverse declining biodiversity and will explain why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.

    To register for this Zoom presentation, please check out Envision Frederick's websitehttps://envisionfrederickcounty.org/native-plantings-spring-2021-webina…

    Doug has written 104 research publications and taught insect-related courses for 40 years. Chief among his research goals is to better understand the many ways insects interact with plants and how such interactions determine the diversity of animal communities. His book Bringing Nature Home: How Native Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens was awarded the 2008 Silver Medal by the Garden Writers’ Association.

  • Be pisitive, see positive

  • Hello, my name is Jan, and I have just joined up, and am joining the Gamechanger Intensive in March. I live in the Midlands, very rurally.
    It's great to find this organisation, and to join this group.
    This is such a pivotal time in our human history, and I hope we can make good use of the Covid-pause to change our collective direction.
    I'm looking forward to meeting you all.

  • Hi everyone! Marty Thompson is working on a children's book titled "I Am The Earth" and is looking for support with illustration and publishing. I thought that someone here might have some insights to offer. Thanks!

  • Jim Hickman previews Saturday's "Hack the Brain: Applied Neuroscience and Spiritual Practice:

  • Jim Hickman, who’ll facilitate Saturday’s Hack the Brain! Applied Neuroscience and Spiritual Practice Online Community Exploration, is a man with quite a history.

    > His first mediation teacher was Michael Murphy, the co-founder of the Esalen Institute

    > He and Murphy were two of the principal founders of the Citizen Diplomacy movement during the heart of the Cold War. He helped create a series of scientific and cultural exchanges between the US and the Soviet Union

    > Jim was an assistant to Stanley Krippner, pioneer researcher into the study of consciousness. Jim worked at the Maimonides Hospital Dream Laboratory with Stan. With Stan’s encouragement, Jim began working in the area of Kirlian photography and managed to capture some uncanny images with the Israel psychic, Uri Geller.

    > Jim and his lifelong colleague, Jim Garrison, transformed the Matthew Fox-founded Wisdom University into Ubiquity University, an accredited global university designed for social impact.

    At Ubiquity University, Jim teaches the popular Applied Neuroscience course, which provides students foundational practices for use in developing enhanced cognitive, emotional and spiritual skills

    This Saturday, Jim will lead an exploration of how a Neuroscience-informed spiritual practice can help us deal with the unpredictable challenges that accompany increasing hyper-complexity in the 21st century.

    The Sacred Inclusion Network is excited to host Jim’s inaugural practicum on this subject, this Saturday from 11am-12:30 pm EST.

    We invite you to join us.

    This video talks about an incredible, at least I think so, new effort and program we are developing to adapt the Drawdown initiative to elementary schools, initially in Morelos, Mexico, but it would easily be adaptable to other regions of the Mexico, Latin America and beyond. All this in collaboration with Rotary International and supported by their foundation, hopefully. Its only 6 minutes, please let me know what you think and and suggestions.
