A New Story of Climate Change with Charles Eisenstein
It’s time for a new vision that radically reframes our predicament and our approach to climate change. Charles Eisenstein argues that many of the proposed solutions to climate change rely on the same thinking that brought us to the crisis, and cannot move us forward. Eisenstein asserts the solutions lie in a new understanding of ourselves and our relationship to each other and the natural world—one that relies on what he calls “interbeing.”

Dreaming the World into Being with Dr. Alberto Villoldo
The shamans of the Andes believe that each of us is given a fragment of the sacred dream to hold and express in our own way. When we forget that we carry an essential and necessary part of the sacred dream, we begin to spiral into disarray, our personal dreams become nightmares, and our lives collapse into chaos. Dr. Alberto Villoldo describes how we can get back in touch with the sacred dream, focus on what is real—and important—in our world, and become fully aware of the possibilities available to us for a better future.

By his mid-20s Alberto Villoldo was the youngest clinical professor at San Francisco State University. He was directing the Biological Self-Regulation Laboratory, investigating how energy medicine could change the chemistry of the brain. One day in his laboratory, Alberto realized that his research had to get bigger instead of smaller, that he was looking out of the wrong end of the microscope. He needed to find a system larger than the neural networks of the brain. Many others were already studying the hardware – Alberto wanted to learn to program the mind to create psychosomatic health. He is the author of several books, including The Heart of the Shaman: Stories & Practices of the Luminous Warrior
Astonishing Science: Brain Creates Reality with Dawson Church
The idea that “thoughts become things” has become a meme in popular culture. It’s held as a firm proposition in metaphysics, and some spiritual teachers ascribe infinite powers to the mind.

Award-winning author Dawson Church presents the scientific explanation for manifestation and the law of attraction.
