New Pricing Options For “The Indigenous Heart: Reconnecting With The Timeless In An Era Of Endings”

Indigenous Heart

This mostly all-inclusive tour provides an opportunity to explore ancient Mayan culture—its ruins, its people, and its ancient wisdom as modernity is confronted with a series of crises and transitions. It offers a profound moment of learning from a civilization that survived centuries of adversity and eventual demise, yet still influences a vast area of Central America culturally, spiritually, and ecologically. We will combine moderately-paced sightseeing with space for rest, spiritual renewal, and connection with each other. Immersion in a magical and beautiful ecosystem in combination with delicious and lovingly-prepared gourmet food (let us know if you have special dietary needs), conversations with Mayan elders, and an exploration of ancient ruins offers sacred time and space for restoring the soul and body in deep intimacy with the Earth.

Foreword To “Extinction Dialogues,” By Andrew Harvey

Andrew

No one who truly reads this book will ever be the same afterwards. Whether you agree in the end with its drastic and shocking conclusions is, of course, up to you; the very fact that such a book, outlining the case for the coming extinction of life on earth, could be written at all – . . . → Read More: Foreword To “Extinction Dialogues,” By Andrew Harvey

I’m A Hazmat-Trained Hospital Worker: Here’s What No One Is Telling You About Ebola, By Abby Norman

Ebola

As we slide now into flu season, into a time of year when we are normally braced for winter diseases, colds, flus, sick days and cancelled plans, the American people has also now been truly exposed to another disease entirely: the excruciating truth about our health care system’s dysfunction — and the prognosis doesn’t look good.

The Age Of Loneliness Is Killing Us, By George Monbiot

Man sitting on a bench under a tree

What do we call this time? It’s not the information age: the collapse of popular education movements left a void filled by marketing and conspiracy theories. Like the stone age, iron age and space age, the digital age says plenty about our artefacts but little about society. The anthropocene, in which humans exert a major impact on the biosphere, fails to distinguish this century from the previous 20. What clear social change marks out our time from those that precede it? To me it’s obvious. This is the Age of Loneliness.

Bearing Witness To The Great Dying, By Kenn Orphan

Skull

We are all witnesses to the Great Dying, a sixth mass extinction, the last one being 65 million years ago which wiped out the dinosaurs. This is not hyperbole; it is a defining feature of our age.

Grieving Could Offer A Pathway Out Of A Destructive Economic System, By Joe Confino

Grief 2

“Many indigenous peoples have a pact with mother Earth that said we would hold on to the principles of thriving life, and that one day the world would turn back and come to us again,” she says. “To be ready for that, we must also go through our grief in order to truly be able to come back into alignment of our mind, body and spirit.”

Earth Changes: Eruptions, Adjustments, And Love, By Jack Adam Weber

Earth Full

When hope is used to reject reality, this is called denial, and denial usually has a darker side than the (fertile and therefore rejuvenating) darkness it initially resisted. When we accept the dark and difficult side of side of life, the experiences that are not rosy and peaceful, we give ourselves an opportunity to undergo transformation, a transformation that can deliver us in earnest to a new level of fulfillment, integration, and therefore healing.

Ebola A Symptom Of Ecological And Social Collapse, By Glen Barry

Bat

The single greatest truth underlying the Ebola tragedy is that humanity is systematically dismantling the ecosystems that make Earth habitable.

Uncharted Territory For A System In Overshoot, By Mary Odum

Population

We are in uncharted territory with the Ebola virus disease (EVD). The last time we had a plague that was this deadly was the Black Death in the 14th century, when there were only 450 million people in the world. That pandemic killed 30% to 70% of the population. There is no benchmark for EVD, which kills 3 out of 4 people it touches, and is emerging into a global population of 7 billion.

Shifting The Psychology of Climate Change Denial, By Dr. Craig Chalquist

Accepting That We Can’t Get There From Here: A Meditation, By Dave Pollard

Mushrooms

So I am starting to accept that I can’t get there (to being-something-else) from here, and that we can’t get there (to a world not plunged headlong into the sixth great extinction of life) from here. To accept it, and to appreciate it. To stop fighting it. To just be who I inevitably am, in this world that is as it inevitably is, here, now.
