Evolution as the resurgence of the indigenous spirit within us
We’re all indigenous to somewhere —John Trudell
Perhaps our evolution and even our survival in this era of the industrial-military-growth society gone global, and of the pathologies that sustains it, is guiding us towards finding within ourselves what is native to the place where we are, and to all the places where we have been and will be. Perhaps we are being called to embody a different sort of presence and humility.
If you’re not horrified, you’re not paying attention to the present state of the world —John Trudell
Ceremonial and Vision Quest leader, Sun Dancer, Pipe Carrier and Musician The first thing we had to learn was respect for what we were experiencing, and putting it in a sacred context. The oldest religion is wandering alone in the mountains. We have the idea in the West that worship is bowing down before something, […]
My entire life experience has been informed by the wilderness, by interacting with the creatures and mountains and deserts of Colorado, from a very young age, a lot of the time alone. My work has been informed by decades of noticing natural systems and the incredible great common sense involved with natural systems, and natural […]
lives lived on purpose, and the stories that shape them
Usually we evaluate people by their reach, their wealth, or what they have accomplished, but there are hidden leaders among us –Disruptors, Creatives, Artists, Educators, and Entrepreneurs, Innovators and Thought Leaders working quietly to transform the world from the inside out; touching the lives of others by stealth, by example, by riding the current just ahead of the wave.
And there are others, recognized for their public voice, leaders in their own right, with unknown dimension beneath the surface of what they are best known for.
Join us for this Podcast series of intimate encounters that illuminate what is hidden, and celebrate some remarkable lives lived on purpose, and some of the stories that shape them. We begin each conversation with a simple question, “Who Are You?”
“Several years ago, Lisa Garr suffered a brain injury during a California State Championship Mountain bike race, where she was in second place, about to take over first. She fell down a long mountain to the bottom, cracking her helmet in 13 places. Lisa had a near death experience while lying on the side of […]
We are raised to look outside ourselves to measure the meaning and value of life, and it’s only much later that we may be challenged to shift to filter for internal markers to ascertain our lives. I so often work with clients who are being challenged, and who completely miss seeing where the problem lies. […]
Shereen Sun: Speaking You Truth There were so many ways, as I was growing up, that I felt very different. Feeling ‘other’ everywhere. I grew up in a Muslim family in Las Vegas, I came out as queer in 7th grade. Coming out means continually peeling away layers to reveal ourselves, to ourselves and to […]
Michele Benzamin Miki in Conversation with Dr. Scott MillsStep Aside and Allow others to Have Their Experience From her beautiful home at Manzanita Village, a spiritual retreat center in Southern California, Michelle Benzamin-Miki joined me for an inspiring conversation about the crossing the boundaries into a world that no longer remembers what it is to […]
Diego Marmolejo and Samuel Velez: The Wisdom of the Earth and Our Ancestorswith Abraham Garcia We’re here to receive the wisdom of the Earth and of our ancestors. Everything that surrounds us – places, people, plants – is medicine. When you understand that, you can call yourself a shaman, a medicine man. I am the […]
Nancy Monson: Flow I have been immersed in personal growth and spiritual development for the past thirty years. Curiosity is the source of everything that is rich and excellent. It’s the source of authentic art, and of science. When everything is in harmony a creative energy is called forth. Its intention is to experience its […]
Scott Mills I’ve been exploring how to live personally in the constant now, while also asking the question, ‘Who are we now as human beings?’ and ‘Who can we become?’ There’s a difference between being in a Now based on anxiety, and being in the Now with a sense of vision. Now is the entry […]
Daniel Hanneman I would hide under the kitchen table. I was so empathetic, so overwhelmed by the energy I sensed around me. I wanted to engage with life, but part of me was afraid to do so. Would it be too much for them? Would it be too much for me? At first I played […]
Jean Marie diGiovanna The New Renaissance means honoring the many talents that everyone has. It is the rediscovery of the individual, of human values. Renaissance painting developed ways of conveying perspective, three dimensions on a two dimensional surface. The New Renaissance is also about developing new perspectives, new ways of doing things, not just in […]
Nancy Marmolejo Deep Genius answers the question, “What are you here to create?” I am a creature of wonder. I have an insatiable curiosity. It’s the fabric of who I am. I’m always asking, ‘Let’s find a new way.’ Just by looking for it, curiosity lays down new neural pathways. It makes you smarter. It […]
Baeth Davis The irony was not lost on me that my purpose, which I had searched for so diligently, and with a lot of tears and agony, was to help other people find their own purpose. Nearly every conversation I have, day in and day out, is to help people have the clarity to say […]
Marikit Mayeno “You can change your story and try to change the way people perceive you, but they’re going to perceive you in a different way from the way you want to be seen anyway. So what’s the point of limiting yourself to one thing if everyone’s always going to see you in a different […]

Camelia Elias “Magic doesn’t appeal to many people because there’s work involved. The point of a magic ritual is to bring attention to what you want to achieve, but you have to go beyond that.” Camelia’s journey from Romania to Denmark was also a journey from refugee, to aspiring judge, to mathematician, to philosopher, to […]
Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy ( SARK ) “I’m a transformer, an uplifter, a laser beam of love. I offer it through art, words, and spirit; and have been doing so all of my life, both in the future and in the past. People talk about past lives, but I also have memories of future lives.” […]
