"I have a deep affection for the Redwood forests of Northern California. This is my best attempt to capture the reverence I feel when in the presence of these giants."
- Jesse Rosten
Pema tells us how our suffering inclines us to blame others and the external world rather than change our relationship with our suffering by wearing leather shoes.
"Our soul’s voice reveals our deepest wisdom and our deepest wounds, which is why unleashing our soul’s voice is often our deepest desire and our deepest fear. We ache to be self-expressed, to be authentic, to totally let ‘er rip and yet we are terrified of being that vulnerable, that raw, that real. So we edit, shape or even shut up our unique soul’s voice in order to be accepted, successful, and even loved. But deep down in our bellies, where our power burns the brightest, we know we cannot be of service, we cannot be free, we cannot truly come alive if we aren’t sharing the truth of who we are. In this provocative talk Sera Beak shares her story, the history of women’s silence, and why unleashing our soul’s voice in our personal and professional lives is so essential in these modern times."

There’s something going down on the playground. Don’t they know that everyone has their own way of parenting? But when it comes down to it, we’re all on the same side. Help us put an end to the judgment by sharing this video with every parent you know. Join the conversation on:
If you wanted to change an ancient culture in a generation, how would you do it?
You would change the way it educates its children.
The U.S. Government knew this in the 19th century when it forced Native American children into government boarding schools. Today, volunteers build schools in traditional rural societies around the world, convinced that school is the only way to a 'better' life for indigenous children.
But is this true? What really happens when we replace another culture's way of learning and understanding the world with our own? SCHOOLING THE WORLD takes a challenging, sometimes funny, ultimately deeply disturbing look at the effects of modern education on the world's last sustainable indigenous cultures.

March 2014 - Elizabeth Gilbert was once an "unpublished diner waitress," devastated by rejection letters. And yet, in the wake of the success of 'Eat, Pray, Love,' she found herself identifying strongly with her former self. With beautiful insight, Gilbert reflects on why success can be as disorienting as failure and offers a simple — though hard — way to carry on, regardless of outcomes.
Your elusive creative genius | TED talk by Elizabeth Gilbert
February 2009 - Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.
The Ocean has spoken. It doesn't owe us anything - but we owe it everything. All of us. Even if you live thousands of miles from a coast, the ocean affects you every day. You can thank the ocean for every other breath you take. For food. For medicine. For protection against storms. But we're not showing our thanks. Instead, we're taking more than we need, and now overfishing, pollution and warming waters threaten the ocean's health. And if the ocean isn't healthy, neither are we.
So, will we continue to damage the ocean we all depend on? Or will we listen?
Morgan Freeman narrates the greatest story of our generation - the story of the human journey at this critical moment in time. Of all the stories to belong to, this is the story to be a part of.
Don't watch it from the sidelines. Don't wait for the experts to figure it out. Ask yourself: how can I become one of the weavers of the story? It's a tapestry with 7 billion threads. What contribution do I want to make?
If you're not yet contributing to this story in some way, ask yourself why not? This is a story for everyone.
Mother Nature has spoken. She doesn't need people. But we need her. For food. For water. For air. We even look to nature for joy and inspiration. But the natural world is being chopped down, burned, poisoned and used up at an alarming rate. We must change course now, because saving nature is the only way to save ourselves. So will we continue to destroy our life source? Or will we listen?
At one time, giving birth at home was the norm and to give birth in a hospital was the exception. Now, nearly 99% of births in America take place in hospitals. With the normalizing of hospital birth, the notion of home birth carries a certain stigma and evokes fear and judgment from many. A feature length documentary currently in production, "Why not Home?" reveals not only the scientific data about safety and interventions in birth, but also the beauty and value of this rite of passage. We will explore birth through the voice and experience of doctors, nurses, and hospital midwives, just like the ones who attend 99% of the births in America. This personal and intimate look at birth at home and in the hospital has the potential to influence people and policy in a way previously unseen.

The world is coming to an end.
The air is polluted, the oceans contaminated.
The animals are going extinct.
The economy is collapsed. Education is shot.
Police are corrupt.
Intelligence is shunned and ignorance rewarded. The people are depressed and angry.
We can't live with each other and we can't live with ourselves,
so everyone's medicating. ...
