The Women’s March: Returning to Comfort or Changing the System?

Now is the time to be honest with ourselves.  Do we really want to change the trajectory, to seriously resist the system OR will we continue otherizing and blame, and go back to feeling comfortable and watch the sunset while the Titanic sinks ?

Apologies for the length, but I didn’t want to break it up. You can always stop at 45mins and have a tea break 🙂 But please listen to the whole piece. Cheers 🙂

2017: May It Be Everything You Wish It To Be

I share some thoughts on what we can do as a species to make the lives of our own species and that of others better.  I speak generally about the problems that arise from trying to block issues from our minds, and how we can open ourselves up to ideas and how we can envision and create a better world by questioning what we have been told, how we are living, and the systems we are living within, and by caring about all sentient beings.
