Turning Season’s Podcast, Ep.6 ~ Re-Membering We’re Connected (with Skye and Miraz)

In this podcast conversation with the lovely Leilani Navar of Turning Seasons, we covered the following topics:

  • the practice of dieta, which Skye and Miraz learned from their years with Shipibo teachers in Peru, and the relationships they cultivate with the more-than-human world
  • fulfillment through primary satisfactions, vs. trying to fill our voids with secondary satisfactions (as taught by Francis Weller)
  • experiencing The Work that Reconnects (aka Deep Ecology), as taught by Joanna Macy and John Seed
  • how Skye and Miraz relate to “the three stories of our time,” and to the three dimensions of The Great Turning (holding actions, structural alternatives, and shifts in consciousness)
  • how essential it is to feel and tend to our grief in community – both the grief we’ve carried, and the grief we will feel as we continue to open
  • the hugely important legal case going on in Ecuador, around protecting the rainforest in the Los Cedros Reserve from copper mining, and supporting the local communities there who have become dependent on that mining
  • urgency, and slow, imaginal time, and the ecstasy of eating an avocado with presence
  • and a poem by Thich Nhat Hanh, read by Miraz, that I long for you to hear
