  • Rise Up Again (2021/07/22 10:00)
    As we all know but often hesitate to share with others, life can be hard at times. Without community and support, it is even harder. This film highlights the lessons of living with resilience by relying on inner strength held up by the support of community. Mpumelelo Ncwadi from South Africa lives from this wisdom which was passed on by his father who taught him that "You should never live your internal life based on the outward appearances of your neighbors." Struggle may be part of the journey but when we lean on each other we can not only survive but thrive through the challenges that life brings.
  • Rewilding a Mountain (2021/07/15 10:00)
    The sagebrush sea is a landscape of stark beauty and captivating wildlife, yet rapid desertification and extractive industries threaten this vast basin. But at Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge in Southeastern Oregon, a different story unfolds. New aspen explode alongside thriving creeks, migratory birds travel thousands of miles to nest in willow branches, and even the endangered sage grouse seem to be recovering in the uplands. Rewilding a Mountain unravels an unsettling controversy that challenged the core identity of the West and follows a team of scientists who ask the question: what happened here? At a moment when public lands are under attack, fresh water is becoming increasingly scarce, and climate change demands severe action, Hart Mountain may serve as a lesson deeply needed, if we’re willing to listen.
  • Mary Oliver: I Happened to be Standing (2021/07/08 10:00)
    The poems of Mary Oliver seem like prayers that anyone can pray. Spacious and simple, expansive and ordinary, they don’t require us to believe in anything in particular. But they do ask us to pay attention to the fleeting and particular space of a moment we are living through, which she has touched so tenderly. Here you can listen to her reading one of her poems: "I Happened to be Standing."
  • The City Planting a Million Trees in Two Years (2021/07/01 10:00)
    As described so eloquently here by the mayor of Freetown, Sierra Leone, the loss of forest due to the impact of climate change is about much more than the loss of beauty and shade. Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr is leading her city's efforts to make Freetown a tree town by planting one million trees in two years, increasing the vegetation cover by 50%. The goal is to reduce the risk of landslides and flooding and to reintroduce biodiversity. Loss of forest is about the loss of ability to live and Freetown is on its way to insuring the ability of all of its residents to live.
  • The Extra Mile (2021/06/24 10:00)
    At 85 years old, Oom Hollie embodies the spirit of Ubuntu, "I am who I am because of who we are." Known as The Iron Man because of the strength and resilience of his body, mind and spirit, he and his family suffered great loss many years ago. With the support of their community they were able to move forward and thrive. He is in love with the land and with growing food, not for profit but to share it with others. He lives gratefully each day motivated by an awareness that "one man's happiness is another's and one man's loss is another's."
  • The Wanting Memories Project: A Celebration of Ysaye Barnwell (2021/06/17 10:00)
    We have all lost someone we love and wondered how our lives could go on without them--without their touch, their encouragement and their wisdom. In this song, composer Ysaye Barnwell gives voice to our deepest longings to remember our departed loved ones and to find the strength to carry their deepest lessons into our lives now. "Songs have intention in themselves but when we sing together, we define who we are," says Ysaye Barnwell, who is also a professor, an activist and a 30 year member of Sweet Honey in the Rock vocal ensemble. Her love of music has brought a diversity of people together to sing with the voice of community and helped them find the power to work for healing and social change in the world.
  • The Art of Weaving (2021/06/10 10:00)
    Being a home weaver is a revolutionary act. Jessica Green shares her life as a weaver, "remembering the importance and sacredness of cloth"; and as a homesteading anti-capitalist entrepreneur. “Being a weaver and a homesteader,” Green says, “is a lifestyle that’s based both in remembering and trailblazing.” Follow her as she takes wool from sheep to woven cloth and explains her choices to "live with the yoke of that responsibility and help other people joyously carry that yoke".
