Jem Bendell on Deep Adaptation, Climate Change and Societal Collapse -E45
How can we adapt to the inevitability of climate-induced societal collapse? In this episode Amisha sits down with strategist and educator Jem Bendell. Jem published a paper in July 2018 introducing the concept of Deep Adaptation and stating his belief in the inevitability of climate-induced societal collapse within the next 10 years. Jem first became an environmentalist as a teenager in 1988 and went on to train as in climate science during his degree before moving into the field of sustainable business. Alarming data on melting ice and permafrost drew Jem back to climate science, where he soon realised that what we see today are many signs of runaway climate change, which has already gone beyond our control. Through his work on Deep Adaptation, Jem offers three questions for humanity at this time: what do we most value, what must we let go of and what must we restore that has been lost?  Jem speaks about sharing his message with school children and sustainable development professionals alike, the fascinating responses he has received to his work and the resulting existential and spiritual shifts in his own life. “The big challenge of our time is to make sure that when our hearts break we stay open and connected and curious rather than coming up with stories to justify ourselves being violent to others that we have othered more than those closest to us.” - Jem Bendell Links from this episode and more at
Erika Gagnon on Plant Medicine, Indigenous Wisdom and The Eagle and Condor Prophecy - E44
How can plant medicines help humanity to heal?   “The sacred master plant medicines help us remember who we are, where we have come from and where we are going. They help us to enter different levels of our awareness and  consciousness, to be able to access different levels of healing for our bodies, minds and spirits.” ~ Erika Gagnon In this episode Amisha meets Canadian Ceremonial leader & Wisdom Keeper Erika Gagnon.  Erika grew up in a typically North American cultural experience without any spiritual inclinations. She was raised in family of mixed heritage amid the separatist movement in Quebec. We hear the story of how - after reaching a crisis point in her early thirties which led to a series of transformational experiences - she connected for the first time with the Red Road, and an unexplored part of her ancestry, beginning her journey on the medicine path, which now spans almost three decades. Together Erika and Amisha speak about how to honour the sacred medicines appropriately and the dangers and deceptions that abound in the world of plant medicine. Erika speaks about working with tobacco as a medicine for ritual and healing - and how it differs from the mainstream commercial and recreational use of tobacco. She shares her experiences of working consciously with trauma and the discordant or destructive energies that can become lodged in our bodies, in order to release and heal them.
