  • Prayer for the Earth: An Indigenous Response To These Times (2022/01/20 10:00)
    In his lifetime Stan Rushworth, an elder of Cherokee descent who was raised by his grandfather, has seen a river die, animals disappear, and the proliferation of box stores. The devastation of climate change is not new to him - his elders have been telling him about it all of his life. The traditional indigenous wisdom that is needed now is looking at how indigenous populations have managed to survive a 95% population reduction through destruction and genocide. He calls on us all to come back to right relationship, to be sorrowful for what is happening, because without this we have lost our humanity. And yet we cannot stop with the sorrow and tears because "there's too much work to be done" and we must figure out together how to do that work.
  • As We Speak - Music Video (2022/01/13 10:00)
    Following on the heels of the Black Lives Matter protests in June 2020, performance artist Wyatt Jackson and songwriters Gen Rubin and Cheryl Yie came together to write the song: Get Up. This song and video is a rallying cry and a call to action. It is a protest song, lamenting the inequalities in education, health care, justice, human rights, and many other areas that affect the lives of Black people. "No mother should have to tell her baby that others will avoid him, judge him, hate him, just for the color of his skin. What kind of world are we living in?" It urges us all to get up, to take action, because "it's not enough to just stand by."
  • The Log - Year 2 (2022/01/06 10:00)
    There are some things we see without seeing, but in them a whole world is held unto themselves. For the last couple of years, wildlife photographer Robert Bush Sr. has had a trail camera situated above a stream in the Pennsylvania wilderness. The "log" videos are mesmerizing and entertaining, as we observe how integral this log is to the life of the forest. What appears to be just a log is so much more...a dinner table, a roadway, a hunting post, a courting place, and a way to find home.
  • The Truelove by David Whyte (2021/12/30 10:00)
    Poet and philosopher David Whyte reads his poem The Truelove. Through this reading we see how our own beliefs about what we think we deserve can limit us, and how daring to broaden our sense of what is possible can liberate us beyond what we can even imagine. It takes faith to acknowledge possibilities, to say yes to life and to love, to give ourselves permission to experience happiness.
  • Man on the Moon (2021/12/23 10:00)
    A little girl enthusiastically observes the moon through a telescope. She spys an elderly man living there alone. With childlike exuberance she finds a way to let him know that he is not alone as they connect on a heart level, bridging the great distance that separates them. The song "Half the World Away" sung by Aurora Aksnes, adds to the magic of this celebration of the ability of hearts to connect even when they are "half a world away." While this 2015 campaign by U.K. retailer John Lewis aimed to raise awareness around loneliness for the elderly around holidays, the message of connection is important for all of us today.
  • What Defines You? (2021/12/16 10:00)
    Danielson Okeyo of Cape Town, South Africa, saw himself as something of a Superman because of his physical abilities. A series of injuries made him question who he was when he was no longer defined by what he could do. Okeyo takes us along on his journey to connect with the healing power of nature by befriending the ocean. In the process he realizes that nature accepts us as who we are. As he opens to this acceptance he is able to let in the love and care of those around him, as he finds freedom and a sense of peace with who he is now.
  • An East-West Approach to Transformation (2021/12/09 10:00)
    This film chronicles a coming together of U.S. and China leaders in the consciousness and wellbeing sector, led by Mina Lee. At the heart of Mina’s life and work is the permission to be stretched by love. She is guided by the question of how to bridge cultural and intergenerational divides — the ways in which we dehumanize each other through misunderstanding, whether between investors and investees, business and non-business sectors, people living in the East and those in the West, and more specifically, China and the United States. Through honoring their shared life experiences they provide witness to the statement, "The only thing separating me from you is my idea of you."
