“The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking. If we want to change the world we have to change our thinking… no problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it. We must learn to see the world anew.” ~ Albert Einstein
See The World Anew…
Systems and structures are failing. The world we created with the belief that “we are separate” from Creator, the Cosmos, Earth and all its inhabitants, including ourselves and the rest of Humanity, will no longer sustain us as a species. This mythology, this narrative, the story of separation, does not serve our one planetary body. Our future depends on a fundamental change to a new way of thinking—a whole-systems understanding of the conscious Universe that is more in alignment with the true nature of reality.
Saying that, a deeper level of our multidimensional reality exists beyond our ability to articulate. Once we wake to this reality, once we embody our inherent wholeness and understand ourselves “as consciousness itself” (Dr Jude Currivan), we begin to understand that the future is not fixed and we don’t have to create more of the same.
We Live in a Co-Creative, Responsive World of Possibilities
Let us wake to the truth of who we are and continually deepen our understanding of reality. Let us develop our innate capacity to participate in the unfolding of the conscious Universe and co-create a new healthy world built with heart and wholeness! <3 We’ve got this!
“We don’t have consciousness. We are consciousness.” ~ Jude Currivan
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.”
Charles Eisenstein is a speaker and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. His viral short films and essays online have established him as a genre-defying social philosopher and countercultural intellectual. Eisenstein graduated from Yale University in 1989 with a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy and spent the next ten years as a Chinese-English translator. He was recently interviewed by Oprah Winfrey on SuperSoul Sunday, July 16, 2017. He is the author of The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible, Sacred Economics, and The Ascent of Humanity, and now Climate–A New Story.
My revolution begins in the body
It isn’t waiting anymore
My revolution does not need approval or permission
It happens because it has to happen in each neighborhood, village, city or town
at gatherings of tribes, fellow students, women at the market, on the bus
It may be gradual and soft
It may be spontaneous and loud
It may be happening already
It may be found in your closet, your drawers, your gut, your legs, your multiplying cells
in the naked mouth of taut nipples and overflowing breasts
My revolution is swelling from the insatiable drumming between my legs
My revolution is willing to die for this
My revolution is ready to live big
My revolution is overthrowing the state
Of mind called patriarchy
My revolution will not be choreographed although it begins with a few familiar steps.
My revolution is not violent but it does not shy away from the dangerous edges where fierce displays of resistance tumble into something new
My revolution is in this body
In these hips atrophied by misogyny
In this jaw wired mute by hunger and atrocity
My revolution is
Connection not consumption
Passion not profit
Orgasm not ownership
My revolution is of the earth and will come from her
For her, because of her
It understands that every time we frack or drill
Or burn or violate the layers of her sacredness
we violate the soul of our future
My revolution is not ashamed to press my body down
On her mud floor in front
Banyan, Cypress, Pine, Kalyaan, Oak, Chestnut, Mulberry
Redwood, Sycamore trees
To bow shamelessly to shocking yellow birds and rose blue setting skies, heart exploding purple bouganvillea and aqua sea
My revolution gladly kisses the feet of mothers and nurses and servers and cleaners and nannies
And healers and all who are life and give life
My revolution is on its knees
On my knees to every holy thing
And to those who carry empire-made burdens in and on their heads and backs and
My revolution demands abandon
Expects the original
Relies on trouble makers, anarchists, poets, shamans, seers, sexual explorers
Tricksters, mystic travelers, tightrope walkers and those who go too far and feel
My revolution shows up unexpectedly
Its not naïve but believes in miracles
Cannot be categorized targeted branded
Or even located
Offers prophecy not prescription
Is determined by mystery and ecstatic joy
Is not centralized though we all know where we’re going
It happens in stages and all at once
It happens where you live and everywhere
It understands that divisions are diversions
It requires sitting still and staring deep into my eyes

The rise of the feminine voice is accelerating on our planet. We are witnessing women stepping up to lead a new way of being and relating in relationship to all things. Some say it’s the divine or sacred feminine rising and this movement has great value to our world and collective healing. How can both men and women tap into the flow of this creative intelligence and force for good? Listen in as MiraMichelle and Dr. Julie muse into the topic.
MiraMichelle was born to an English mother and an African-American/Native American Indian father, she was raised in two distinctly different cultures and this reality has given her a great ability to understand, appreciate and to assimilate with different cultures.
Her exploration of consciousness began at age 19 with an intensive 5 year training in meditation and energetic healing. She spent another five years in meditation training with the light head ascended master Yogananda Paramahansa, studied and practiced the ancient Goddess traditions and has been taught by a Native American Shaman and Chief of The Sun Dance Society. Rediscovering her Native American and Celtic ancestral lines played a major role in the empowerment of her healing and ceremonial abilities.
After traveling and experiencing different cultures Mira began to study anthropology. She is honored to be advised by author Gerhard Bott (Die Erfindung der Götter) in the cultures of the Matrifocal societies of the Paleolithic era.
Rest as Restorative for Ourselves and Our Planet with Shelley Ostroff
What would happen if we joined hearts with people around the world to connect in stillness, compassion, and dedicated action for intentional planetary healing? Imagine a thriving world where we all mindfully take time to rest, remove stress, noise, and toxins from our lives. Now is that time! Shelley Ostroff invites us to take “7 Days of Rest” to realign our hearts with each other and with the loving intelligence and order of nature.
Distressed by the suffering humans are causing to each other, animals and the planet, Shelley spent many years learning about integrative pathways for local and global health and vitality. After exploring processes that impact individual and system vitality, she developed a holistic approach that draws on a broad range of experience in different countries and traditions. The holistic approach addresses some of the damaging consequences of assumptions that currently drive social organization. It integrates insight from complementary disciplines and offers conceptual and practical frameworks for nourishing vitality of people and planet.
