Podcasts and Other Audio

Many of you have read my books and followed my writing online over the years but perhaps were unable to attend one of my workshops in person. Despite the limitations of audio vs. live presentations, some of my valuable teaching will now be available online.

It is my goal in the coming year to produce extensive audio segments of vital information regarding emotional and spiritual preparation for the collapse of industrial civilization. These will include far more than just information and will offer you the opportunity to utilize many of the experiential exercises provided in my live workshops.

  • - Lyn White On Animal Justice In Australia And Beyond

    Lyn White with Aniamls Australia is also the Director of Animals International, the global arm of Animals Australia, collaborating with international colleague groups on universal animal cruelty issues from factory farming to live export. Her work has led to unprecedented animal welfare advancements in a number of countries, including in Jordan where she serves as Chief Adviser to the Princess Alia Foundation. Lyn’s life experiences are unique and provide an insight into the systems of justice in place for humans and animals. She presents a compelling argument that the causes of human and animal suffering are the same — and that we cannot address one without addressing the essence of both. Moreover she deeply challenges the essence of our humanity by advocating that we are not simply here to be human beings, but to become humane beings — and to leave this world a kinder and more compassionate place for those who follow us. This podcast is not a collection of horror stories but reveals the many victories of Animals Australia and shares how we can all become involved to strengthen justice for animals.

  • - Our Collective Madness: Mapping How This Happened

    If we don't understand how we got here, we are powerless to respond to our predicament. Before we can respond, we need a map because often maps help us acquire a clarity we would not otherwise have. Just as we buy into unspoken agreements in our dysfunctional families, we buy into unspoken agreements in our culture. What are those agreements? We can't buy out of them until we understand how we bought in.

Susan lives with these animals throughout their lifetimes, developing deep relationships and insights. This makes it possible for her to bring wild animals’ voices into our awareness and into conservation decisions. Susan's work is about saving and learning from wild animals in order to empower them and humans to save land and animals.

  • - Healing Climate Trauma: Beyond Climate Change Toward Truth And Reconciliation With Zhiwa Woodbury

    Climate "change" doesn't begin to address the existential and moral crisis humans are experiencing. All living beings are traumatized by climate catastrophe. Instead of talking about climate "change" which is a form of climate denial, we need to talk about climate trauma and work intra-psychically--emotionally and spiritually, on healing its effects. In addition, we need to learn from Truth and Reconcilliation movements how to employ Truth and Reconcilliation in healing our climate trauma and developing Earth intimacy. Ecosystems will sort out the carnage, and we may be part of it, but climate trauma is offering us an opportunity for coming to feel and understand, at at last, what it means to be human.

  • - Beyond Hope: Letting Go Of A World In Collapse

    This conversation is a motherlode of truth and wisdom as Deb and I discuss what it means to be fully present and awake to our global predicament, how we end the illusion of separation by becoming deeply immersed in our essence, how our separation-oriented ego can become more lovingly folded into our essence, what community means and doesn't mean, the proper role of service in our lives, and how we hold space for whatever is next in the demise of our planet.
