In this first episode of The Future is Beautiful Podcast, Amisha Ghadiali meets author and speaker Charles Eisenstein at the Aniwa gathering which brought together elders from indigenous communities across the globe. Here the old stories, the current stories and the new stories of humanity encounter one another and offer their gifts, challenges and questions.
They sit down together and share a moment amongst the crickets, children and birdsong to tune into what climate change is teaching us about connection, how empathy has a direct impact on ecology, the subtle addictions that shut down our sensitivity, what it will take to bring viable alternative systems into being and how love engenders in us the courage to act.
“To do the things that are really necessary requires real courage, so for me the question becomes where does that courage come from, the commitment to do whatever it takes? It comes from love and from a direct feedback loop that what you love is in danger.” ~ Charles Eisenstein
