Holding Both/And in an Either/Or World

In times of dynamic change, black or white thinking can be an influence in creating divisiveness. We feel a sense of belonging and safety adopting an either/or thought process which in the end can create a feeling of swinging between extremes and feeling off balance. How do we integrate both/and thinking to help us create and maintain a sense of center when the winds of change are blowing?

Climate Change…Why Bother?

Climate change is increasingly becoming a topic that can’t be ignored.

How do we tackle such a triggering subject?

How do we develop the spiritual and emotional stamina that will be required to weather the coming storms?

How do we respond to loss?

Do you want to control the outer world and the information coming at you? Or, can you look inside and engage in self reflection in order to moderate your emotions and reactions around this subject?

Why even bother? Could climate change be the catalyst for the greatest spiritual awakening ever?

Listen in as I discuss my feelings around climate change and why I care about knowing about what is happening at an accelerating pace on our planet.

Paring Down to Essentials

Just like preparing for winter, we are facing times where we need to consider paring down to the essentials to weather the effects from climate change, our political decisions and our economic instability. Reality is becoming real. What are the essential things…relationships, behavior patterns, beliefs and supplies that will serve you in moving forward during this transitional time?

This segment aired on Extinction Radio on August 24, 2016.

Reconnecting our Orphan

Times of great change can often leave us feeling disconnected and alone. Getting off line and back into our communities can reconnect our “Orphan” and help our communities become stronger and more resilient.

This is a segment I presented for Extinction Radio which aired August 10, 2016.

Processing the Distress of the Present Moment

I had the recent pleasure to engage in a conversation with Nick Burk of Relief Analysis regarding tipping points and the correlation between climate tipping points and those in the collective psyche.

Enjoy the conversation!

 

In a deeply insightful and heartfelt interview with ReliefAnalysis, Lisa White, the creator of the Walk In the Mud website, offers a lens to begin to process that alien landscape where disorientation and tipping points share an uneasy coexistence. Ms. White describes the spiritual field of Archetypal Astrology, its interconnection to the work of Carl Jung, and an inner and outer cosmology to help put into context current social tensions, worldwide institutions under duress, and what the symbols of blue Arctic Oceans and sine wave-like jet streams may be triggering in our collective unconscious.

 

I urge you to follow, Nick Burk’s work at Relief Analysis and on his SoundCloud for the latest conversations about disaster relief and humanitarian operations.

A River of Tears

All is one. But, do we really live as if that is so?

All is one…that is the spiritual mantra that many people love to extol.

But, do we really live as if all was one? Does our unconscious self really make decisions based on “All is one?”

How has the human shadow impacted our decisions which have lead to the catastrophic predicament that we are facing in terms of climate change?

How can we find the power in losing it all?

Please listen in as Carolyn Baker and I discuss the impact of the human shadow which has lead to the global climate change emergency.
