The Holistic Nature of Us: Introduction


My intent is to take us, you and I, into a better understanding of the concepts behind our holistic nature and how that ties directly to the holistic nature of the world around us. How can we connect the dots in practical ways that we are nature and nature’s in us?

I feature authors and educators, practitioners and others whose passion for this earth help us create bridges. We’ll see what’s trending, what’s relevant to our world today not just for land use but to connect the dots between ourselves and nature. It’s time for practical action and profound inner change so our natural world is valued once again.

Holistic Nature of Us: New Podcast Series

“What we do affects the next seven generations.” Native American philosophy.

I began the podcast series The Holistic Nature of Us because I want to connect the dots that we and nature have so much in common.

I remember my Native American elders saying over and over that the mountains are the spine of the earth, the bones. Rivers are like our blood, they are the Earth Mother’s blood. Trees, plants breathe out oxygen for us as we breathe out carbon dioxide for them, a true symbiotic relationship.

Yet, it seems we disregard her. We have exploited resources, caused toxic pollution never before seen on this planet. Today, some states do not have recycling laws or refunds, do not manage their waste efficiently.

We have stretched some resources to the point of genuine concern. The planet has lost one-third of its topsoil in the past century alone. Desertification of our planet is a real concern. Our precious water is polluted and unpotable in many areas. Though we have initiated clean up efforts is it enough to counteract the rate at which we continue to pollute, create trash?

Several years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting some camp counselors nearby my health food store. We engaged in enjoyable environmental discussions as they taught environmental classes through the camp. One day they burst out into song: Where is Away?, a song about when we throw it away, where is away? Most of us have no clue unless we receive a Facebook video about the build-up of plastic bottles etc on coastlines.

There are many innovations out there that are helping. Crowdfunding is helping visionaries, engineers, entrepreneurs create solutions and it’s exciting.

I hope to bring in guests from many different perspectives. Their sharing is a strand, a piece of the web of interconnection to the web of life in some measure. They all offer practical tips and wisdom from their chosen fields, something we can connect with to bring back respect for this place we call home, not for ourselves but for all species. They are passionate and knowledgeable. Join us. It is my sincere hope you will be inspired to take practical action today!

My podcast series will be posted here and on several platforms. What are you doing to make a difference? How has a podcast inspired you? We’d love to hear from you. Enjoy.
