Table Talk: Expanding into “Letting Go” Consciousness

It’s been a while since I’ve felt the impulse to record another Table Talk conversation with Louise LeBrun. Even though we see each other regularly and our conversations are always profoundly meaningful to me, there are many times when I feel compelled to just keep them for myself. That said, I’m always open for the potential of a conversation that I feel inspired to share. As it happens, the impulse finally landed for me to once again bring out the mic. With a deep curiosity about what could possibly emerge from within the two of us, I started recording. As always, there was no agenda. Just an open space for a free-flowing, organic conversation. As we often do, Louise and I covered a lot of interesting terrain. Because our conversations are always intimate and personal, we go to places that are familiar to our own shared experiences. To provide some context to aid in your understanding of the direction we embarked on, Louise references two of her powerful creations: the Decloaki...

Table Talk: Expanding into “Letting Go” Consciousness

Activated Presence in Times of Accelerating Collapse

In this conversation with Michael Dowd and Ganga Devi Braun, I share my personal evolution toward a life of activated presence in these times of social, ecological and climate collapse. This interview is part of the Post Doom Conversation series that will be released later this year. According to Michael Dowd, creator of the Post Doom Conversation series, the theme of the Post Doom conversations is as follows: “A foreboding sense of climate chaos, societal collapse, and ecological “doom” is now widespread. Acknowledging our predicament and working through the stages of grief takes one only to the midpoint: acceptance. What lies beyond? Michael Dowd (with occasional co-hosts) invites guests to share their personal journeys along this trajectory and especially the gifts they have found on the other side of the post-doom doorway.” Michael describes a post-doom heart and mindset as follows: “Living, loving, and relating honorably with full awareness that there are levels of climate...

Activated Presence in Times of Accelerating Collapse

The Perpetual Illusion of Change

While the prevailing global collective dig their heels deeper into sustaining the status quo, many others are becoming activists, enraged by the infinite list of atrocities being committed around the globe. As seemingly more people fight for change these days—with grandiose expectations for governments, corporations, media, and the global public to wake up and do something—notable progress continues to evade us. With a lifetime of advocacy in my experience, I know well the trenches of activism. Having lived through almost six decades of human potential, I’ve born witness to, and participated in several activist uprisings. The passion behind these acts of revolt was often so impressive that one could easily be convinced of a shift in collective consciousness. Why then, do we stand in the precarious place that we do today? An abbreviated timeline of the past 60 years tells an interesting story about the efficacy of activism to create meaningful change in our world. The ’60’s brou...

Table Talk: Who Are We in the Face of Collapse?

While relishing a beautiful summer day in our lovely screened porch, Deb Gleason, Louise LeBrun and myself enjoy another compelling Table Talk conversation about, Who Are We in the Face of Collapse. In this conversation we explore how we are so conditioned to tiptoe around difficult conversations under the guise of “protecting” others and how this comes at great expense to the fullness of our most authentic expression. We also talk about how the most difficult conversation in the global predicament we are living in today, is that of collapse: of civilization, of ecosystems, of the planetary biosphere, of Life on Earth. Few are willing to go there, and it’s not uncommon for this conversation to be negated, dismissed, mocked, and denied. But what if we stopped skirting the edges of difficult conversations such as these and allowed ourSelves to speak our truth? Not to educate, advise or convince, but simply to tell it like we know it within ourselves? We delve into an exploration ab...

Table Talk: Who Are We in the Face of Collapse?

Table Talk: Intimacy, Evolution and the Sound of Breath

As I continue the vigorous pace of my personal evolution, the emptiness I feel when engaging with others presents more frequently. In fact, I feel more alone engaging with most people than I do when I’m actually alone. There are exceptions, of course. They are the rare few who are also committed to their own personal evolution; free of all doctrine, be it Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, science, politics, technology, or any other form of dogmatic thought. These are the few who have progressed beyond the shallow awareness of seeking to know more to become “enlightened”, “awakened” (as if there is a finish line), or to become a “better person”; to the deeper awareness of knowing their connection to all life and choosing to live accordingly. While the majority of humans live their lives from the coma of culturally conditioned habituation, many others profess their commitment to some sort of spiritual search. Few, however, are willing to move beyond the search in order to find,...

UP #125: Unplugging from Civilization, Plugging into the Soul with Deb Ozarko

My evolution with this podcast has been one of passion to inspire a more compassionate and activated world in the small window of time I believed we still had when I started this endeavor. From there I experienced the dramatic effects of abrupt climate change first hand in 2015. This opened me to a deeper knowing that presented in premonitions of ocean collapse that same year. This made it clear to me that we are now living in the “apocalyptic times” that so many ancient traditions have spoken about. The 6th mass extinction event does not exclude us. We are not miraculously exempt from the repercussions of our collective ignorance, arrogance, and relentlessly consumptive, overpopulating, industrialized, and separated ways. With this in mind, I have been turning inward. I’ve been deep in the throes of an extremely powerful personal evolutionary process that has profoundly transformed my life. It’s been so powerful that all identity of who I once thought myself to be is gone and I...

UP #124: Living from Essence with Karen Malik

In the Far East, they say that the innermost channel of the heart is the non-dual channel—our essential nature. Non-duality can be defined as the philosophical, spiritual, and scientific understanding of non-separation and fundamental oneness. When our hearts connect, we are united. This is who we are in our deepest core Soul essence. Many people are rigidly identified with the reasoning mind: the institutional education they’ve had, the books they’ve read, the experiences they’ve had, the beliefs they’ve attached to, and the stories they believe to be real. Although this is common, it limits us because we are so much more than our reasoning minds. When we lead from the heart however, our capacity to hold life-force, is increased. As we open to our Soul, our core essence rises into our experience. The presence of our essence stimulates our energy bodies (mental, emotional and spiritual) and brings with it profound inner wisdom. This week, I’m honored to share the voice of a wo...

UP #123: Speciesism: The Root “ism” of Our Separation from the World with Trisha Roberts

All conflict, destruction and violence on this planet stems from the illusion that we are separate. We “otherize” one another, non-human animals and the Earth, becoming mere commodities in the end. Separation psychosis is conditioned into us from birth and is nurtured by every dominant belief,and cultural system within our civilization. The deepest, most pervasive, and destructive root of our separation is specieism. The basic definition of speciesism is, “the assumption of human superiority leading to the exploitation of animals.” But it is far more complex than this. From the website veganism.com, “Discrimination is based on judging others not for who they are but for what they are not. The lives and experiences of nonhuman animals are usually considered less important than those of human beings simply because they are not like humans. Yet nonhuman animals have emotional lives and feel pain, pleasure, fear and joy. Devaluing their lives simply because they don’t have some ch...

UP #122: Curiosity, Collapse and Urgent Spirituality with Peter Melton

The power of metaphor is perhaps one of the best ways to convey a story or message. In the deepening crises facing our world and our planet, it’s becoming increasingly challenging to make sense of the madness that has descended upon us. This week’s guest, Peter Melton, is a gifted storyteller with a voracious curiosity to understand what brought us to this place and how we can move through these times with an intimate connection to our deepest spirituality. Peter is keenly aware of our dire situation and has worked closely with both Guy McPherson and Carolyn Baker to understand more fully the collapse that befalls us. His outlook however is not one of fear and despair. His natural creative talent for metaphors, fables and music has gifted him with an ability to explore spirituality in a way that brings peace and levity to the heart. Peter holds both collapse and expansion, mortality and immortality in his consciousness. Through this, he has discovered what he appropriately calls, ...

UP #121: Sacred Activism in a Hostile World with Andrew Harvey

Andrew Harvey is a multi-book author, passionate speaker and Founder Director of the Institute of Sacred Activism, an international organization focused on inviting concerned people to take up the challenge of our contemporary global crises by becoming inspired, effective, and practical agents of institutional and systemic change, in order to create peace and sustainability. Andrew’s history is rich. He was born in south India where he lived until he was 9 years old. He credits this early period in his life with shaping his sense of the inner unity of all religions and providing him with a permanent and inspiring vision of a world infused with the sacred. He left India to attend private school in England and entered Oxford University in 1970 with a scholarship to study history. At the age of 21, he became the youngest person ever to be awarded a fellowship to All Soul’s College, England’s highest academic honor. By 1977, Andrew was disillusioned with life at Oxford and returned t...
