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.

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.
