To heal the world. “When you’re speaking from the heart that’s the type of effect you have on people, its real, and its intentional, and that’s what farming was.

Our conversation with Maya van Rossum, Founder of the Green Amendment movement, Is a conversation about fighting for something positive and SIMPLE: The right for all people to have clean water, pure air, safe environments and stable climates. Maya discusses the importance of getting clear language into state and federal constitutional bills of rights that support our right to breath, drink, eat and live without facing health consequences caused by environmental degredation. We also approach the topic of inequality and how that inequality manifests  via how different communities water and air is being protected. The irony is that how no matter who she is fighting in her work to create protections for these basic rights, she knows she’s actually fighting for her enemy's health and happiness, and all people's everywhere. Where to find Maya and The Green Amendment:Book:

We intentionally wanted to share this episode the day after the election, as I'm sure many of us are struggling with uncomfortable feelings of anger, disappointment and uncertainty. After reading the book, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, Madeleine and I discuss how the concepts presented in this book helped us to clarify our own faith and spirituality by grounding us in the present moment and reminding us of our connection to all living things. If you're looking for some guidance on how to experience more peace and compassion moving forward - no matter what the outcome or who you were supporting for president - we encourage you to give this a listen and, as always, let us know what you took away from it.
This week we have a VERY special episode that we wanted to make sure we posted prior to the upcoming U.S. election. We're sitting down with LA-based spiritual counselor and astrologer, Diana Lang, to talk about how to hold navigate all the uncertainty today, and how to hold for the highest good amidst it all.  She has a lot to share to help us prepare for what's ahead and to get back to the only thing that will create the world we want: Love.Where to find DianaWebsite - www.dianalang.comSoundcloud - - -
