What makes life work?
Jeddah Mali, visionary change maker and founder of Intelligent Life, shares a completely new approach to the age-old dilemma of how to make life, business and society work effectively and harmoniously. Jeddah’s unique approach identifies and maps the cohesive design underlying every system, from an individual person to a solar system. It reveals the hidden patterns within every aspect of life that are responsible for how things turn out.
Jeddah provides an in-depth examination into the nature and function of this design, and the mechanics that make it work. Our understanding and use of these mechanics determine the extent to which we can produce consistent and reliable results.
Jeddah is sought after for her precise understanding of human beings, the contribution each person makes individually and collectively and the impact this has on the world in which we live. Her work examines the link between our design as human beings and our hardwired predisposition towards peace, collaboration and contentment.

It’s easy to despair at all the bad news and horrific pictures that come at us daily. But Roshi Joan Halifax says this is a form of empathy that works against us. There’s such a thing as pathological altruism. This zen abbot and medical anthropologist has nourishing wisdom as we face suffering in the world.
“I think what we’re seeing actually is not compassion fatigue, but empathic distress, where there’s a resonance, and yet we can’t do anything about it. When we are more stabilized, then we can face the world with more buoyancy, more capacity to address these very profound social and environmental issues. So that’s why I call these things “edge states,” because they really call us to our edge.
“We’re in an era of great breakdown, environmentally and socially and psychologically. And when systems break down, the ones who have the resilience to actually repair themselves, they move to a higher order of organization. And I think that this is characterized by something the complexity theorists call ‘robustness,’ that we can anticipate both a time of great robustness, which we’re in, with tremendous potential to wake up and take responsibility. And, at the same time, we’re in a lot of difficulties and we need resilience to make our way through this change.”
~ Roshi Joan Halifax, Zen Buddhist teacher, anthropologist, ecologist, civil rights activist, hospice caregiver, and the author of several books on Buddhism and spirituality

“There’s a new species of humanity emerging everywhere among us. Homouniversalis is made up of our evolving spirituality, of our evolving vocational and social initiatives and innovations in every field. And made up of high tech genius. You have a new species that can restore the Earth, free the people, explore the Universe.” ~ Findhorn Fellow, futurist and evolutionary biologist Barbara Marx Hubbard
Barbara says we are at the next stage of human evolution and in this short video interview she talks about our new emerging species, which she calls, homouniversalis. This new species integrates powerful spiritual, social, scientific, and high-tech capabilities. Barbara will be leading a year long event to awaken and mentor the new species together. To learn more, visit barbaramarxhubbard.com.
Scintillating, visionary conversation between Barbara Marx Hubbard & Duane Elgin on the new human species evolving. Both will be speakers on Global Oneness Day 2017: Oneness – Living into the Unity of all Life.
The Oneness Movement is growing; more and more people are waking up to the Ultimate Reality of the Oneness of all Life. It takes more however than waking up to bring an end to all the devastation that we are witnessing in the world around us.
Life revolves around a continuing process of opening up, cleaning up, growing up and showing up.
By focusing on this theme leading up to and on Global Oneness Day 2017 we hope to help elevate the universal governing principles of life to a next level of enunciation and expression so that we can move from the concepts that represent them to the living of them. To help raise our consciousness ever more so that we may become more fully aware of all that is involved in the process of life expressing and creating, and at last – to assist us in Living as One.

“….we’ve reached the end of a lot of governing myths around our society. And we need to evolve new myths, new beliefs. ‘How Soon is Now?’ looks at the ecological crisis as a kind of rite of passage, or initiation, for the human species to reach another level of consciousness and another level of society.” ~ Daniel Pinchbeck, radical futurist and philosopher
Dr. Stephan Harding, Resident Ecologist at Schumacher College, shares a moment of magic in describing the idea of ‘encounter’. He eloquently explains it as the moment when:
“…you actually meet the being, as the being, coming forth from itself, as itself, revealing itself to you in a way that’s beyond your intellect, in a way that’s much more deeply intuitive and much harder to express. Scientific language is inappropriate for this kind of encounter. It’s poetry that does it. It’s a poetic encounter.”
This is a segment of the forthcoming film about the radical economist and ecologist, David Fleming, ‘The Seed Beneath the Snow’.
Today across Turtle Island (also known as the United States), millions are celebrating the resiliency within themselves and within their communities. They are celebrating and honoring those that came before them and those that will come after them. They are celebrating perseverance and determination. They are celebrating Indigenous Peoples Day.
As of this year 19 cities including Los Angeles, Austin, and Salt Lake City, have joined the 36 cities across the county who already recognize Indigenous Peoples Day rather than Columbus day.
Indigenous Peoples Day honors the original peoples of this land and celebrates the resilience of those who to this day are fighting systems of oppression that began the moment Columbus and Spanish conquistadors landed in Taíno and Arawak territories (also known as the Bahamas, Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic).
Now let’s make it clear that Indigenous Peoples day is not an attack on those who have immigrated to the U.S. There are those who came this “new world” because their leaders were failing them and there are those that had no choice. This day doesn’t exist to disregard anyone’s story but rather to share the full story. Indigenous Peoples Day is here to tell the full truth of what happened when colonizers landed on Turtle Island and to also uplift the truth that colonization is still happening. Whether it’s pipelines, or man camps, or loss of culture and language, these are symptoms disregarding the humanity of Indigenous Peoples.
This day urges us to take a hard look at what we learned in grade school and to accept that perhaps we were lied to and that Columbus and other conquistadors such as Oñate or Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca were not heroes.
Rather the heroes are those who survived colonization and those who are here now and are carrying on the legacy of their ancestors by protecting Indigenous culture and knowledge.
In honor of uplifting Indigenous voices and stories, Indigenous Rising Media would like to feature 7 Indigenous activists, educators, entrepreneurs that you should be following!
They share with us what they are protecting and defending, in honor of their own resilience and the resilience of their ancestors.
Check them out, support, and share!
