Ecotopia 390: Dark Gold

by Susan Tchudi, Carolyn Baker

In this program, Susan spoke with with Carolyn Baker, author of a new book, Dark Gold: The Human Shadow and the Global Crisis. Carolyn’s work centers on how we can not only survive collapse and disaster but can use it as an opportunity for growth. According to her website, “Carolyn Baker’s mission is to create islands of sanity in a sea of global chaos. This mission necessitates the development of a variety of emotional tools alongside commitment to spiritual transformation.” She is the author of ten books that explore the frightening world in which we live. While acknowledging that we are on the verge of collapse—social, environmental, political and economic—Carolyn Baker offers a way out, or through, to joy.
