A New Food System

an interview with Tanya Fields

Speakers at Connecting for Change (2013)

With a Bachelor’s in Political Science from Baruch College, and a talent for public speaking, blogging and singing, Tanya Fields is a reputed and rising public speaker and educator.
Inspired by her experiences as a single working mother living in a marginalized community, Tanya Fields founded the BLK ProjeK in 2009 as a response to sexist institutional policies, structurally reinforced cycles of poverty, and harsh inequities in wealth and access to capital that result in far too many women being unable to rise out of poverty and sustain their families. The group was nominated for a 2011 Union Square Award and Tanya has the honor of being a Green for All Fellows, through which she connects with a national cohort of environmental justice change agents.

The Real Magic of Consciousness

an interview with Eben Alexander

Speakers at Connecting for Change (2013)

Dr. Eben Alexander, a renowned academic neurosurgeon, spent 54 years honing his scientific worldview. He thought he knew how the brain and mind worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE), in which he was driven to the brink of death and spent a week deep in coma from an inexplicable brain infection, changed all of that – completely!
In his best-selling book, “Proof of Heaven, A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife”, Dr. Alexander explains that he was shocked to find the hyper-reality of that spiritual realm, which many had reported in NDEs. He has spent the last two and a half years reconciling his rich spiritual experience with contemporary physics and cosmology. His spiritual experience is totally consistent with the leading edges of scientific understanding today.
Dr. Alexander believes that together, science and spirituality will thrive in a symbiosis offering the most profound insight into fundamental Truth, yielding unimaginable power. The keystone is in global progression of individual conscious awakening.
