Our Ancestors The Bacteria

an interview with Sandor Katz

Speakers at Connecting For Change (2012)

Sandor Ellix Katz is a self-taught fermentation experimentalist who wrote the book “Wild Fermentation” in order to share the fermentation wisdom he had learned, and demystify home fermentation. Since the book’s publication in 2003, Katz has taught hundreds of fermentation workshops across North America and beyond, taking on a role he describes as a “fermentation revivalist.” Through these workshops, Katz met many different food activists—varied in their specific projects but united by a passion to bring food back to earth—who inspired him to write “The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved”. Newsweek called Wild Fermentation “the fermenting bible,” while the New Yorker wrote that Katz’s books “have become manifestos and how-to manuals for a generation of underground food activists.” His latest book is “The Art of Fermentation”, (Chelsea Green, 2012).

But when the government of the part of the Planet we call the U.S. and the laboratories of the university announced they were developing “safer nuclear weapons,” he decided to stop cooperating with the institution. Now as a responsible scientist, he says he is doing his “PhDO in Citizenship of the World.”
Pancho believes that “when the inner (r)evolution merges with the outer (r)evolution, the Total (R)evolution of the Human Spirit is imminent.” Furthermore, when science and art are balanced, the beauty of life blossoms with what he calls the “New Renaissance of Humanity.” His mission statement is “to live in radical joyous shared servanthood to unify humanity.” His activism and life’s focus is on issues of human rights, environmental sustainability, nonviolence, peace-building, immigration, urban agriculture and the development of a vibrant “gift economy.” Ramos-Stierle has been an integral part of movements to democratize the University of California system, protect old growth trees, implement “free farms” and move beyond youth violence, among other efforts.
He blogs at Earthling Opinion and ServiceSpace and can be followed on Twitter @oneworldcitizen.

Orion Foxwood is a conjurer in the Southern folk tradition, a traditional witch and a founding elder of the Foxwood Temple of the Old religion in Maryland, and the founder of a Faery Seership apprenticeship program.

Morgan Brent (MT Xen) has a PhD in anthropology, however he left academia after engagements with herbal healing traditions clued him into a vast Gaian intelligence, with which he became conversant, and soon allied with its purposes. He now specializes in the prescriptive teachings (Gaian dharma) of medicinal plants, aka ‘Nature’s plan to save the humans’. In service to this guidance, he writes articles and essays, births, collects, and strings together songs into malas of embodied story telling, and makes medicines of all kinds, among them events both large (Singing Alive Gatherings, now in their 6th year), and small (Creation-Song circles). These events are all about sharing songs (and prayers, chants, blessings, and song om) of personal and planetary renewal ~ which he considers food for a spiritually hungry world.

Morgan speaks with Matthew about entheogens; the “Gaian immune system;” ayahuasca and planetary awakening; cultural midwifes and the deeper, transpersonal levels of imagination…
