Future Primal

an interview with Louis G. Herman

Louis_HermanDr. Louis G. Herman, professor of political science at the University of Hawai‘i – West O‘ahu, has recently published “Future Primal: How our Wilderness Origins Show us the Way Forward”, a stunning book that responds to the multiple crises of globalized humanity by recovering the classical project of political philosophy—the truth quest—as “the search for the best way to live.” The story of the philosopher’s personal search becomes an entry into “big history:” the epic narrative of contemporary cosmology, of the emergence of creative, self-reflective humanity from a southern African wilderness, on an evolving planet within an evolving universe.

Louis speaks with Joanna about: “future primal”; growing up in the garden of Eden; ecstatic memories of the wilderness; experiencing the Dreamtime; reconciling scientific cosmology and direct experience; an ongoing Mystery; a seeing waking up to itself; a connective story.

Remembering Our Humanity

an interview with Julian Rose

Julian Rose is one of the pioneers of UK organic farming, commencing the conversion of his farm in 1975. He joined the Soil Association board in 1984 and campaigned vigorously for the widespread introduction of organic farming methods at a time when this system was not known. Julian went on to develop his farm as a mixed organic enterprise selling all its main produce locally, while refusing to sell to supermarkets. He developed a theory of local production and consumption which he named “The Proximity Principle.” His advice has been sought by local authorities, development agencies and government.

Julian has written and broadcast extensively; his latest book is “In Defence of Life. Essays on a Radical Reworking of Green Wisdom” – a penetrating series of essays calling for urgent action to overcome the perilous state of our planet, at the local as well as global level. Also, “Changing Course – For Life” – about the radical changes needed to bring new hope to society. He is an environmental activist and a defender of peasant and family farming traditions throughout the world.

Julian Rose speaks with Joanna about his early initiation in Australia to the connection with Nature; learning organic farming; the staggering generosity of Nature; growing your own food; the crucial role of imagination; the proximity principle; community supported agriculture; speak your mind, remember your humanity.

Remembering the Ancestors

an interview with Martin Prechtel

Martin Prechtel is a thinker, writer and teacher whose work, both written and oral, hopes to promote the subtlety, irony and pre-modern vitality hidden in any living language. As a half blood Native American with a Pueblo Indian upbringing, his life took him from New Mexico to the village of Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala where he became a full village member of the Tzutujil Mayan population, and eventually served as a principal, responsible for instructing the young people in the meanings of their ancient stories through the rituals of adult rights of passage. Once again residing in his native New Mexico, Martín teaches at his international school Bolad’s Kitchen.

Animal Healing

A pioneer in animal acupuncture and natural healing, Dr Wheir was trained by Sensei Nakazono in the Kototama School of Japanse acupuncture and practiced on humans with many remarkable healing successes before he turned his full attention to animals. Dr Wheir has been  an advocate for humane population control of domestic animals and wildlife and the protection of endangered species, including Mexican sea turtles and African elephants. He has conducted hundreds of spay-neuter clinics in the US and Latin America through the organization he founded, Animal Alliance, and has lectured widely, collaborating with the Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society International and many other foundations and institutions. He now serves on the board of Alliance for the Earth, Elephants in Crisis, and The Biosphere Foundation – and is excited to be a hands-on veterinarian once again!

Dr Wheir’s veterinary practice specializes in animal acupuncture and alternative approaches to health and healing, herbal medicine, diet and neutraceutical support for dogs, cats and horses. He offers exams, consultations, diagnosis, second opinions, geriatric care, management of chronic pain, lameness and paralysis and…..having successfully treated over 20,000 horses with acupuncture, Dr Wheir’s rapport with horses is extraordinary.

Hugh’s commitment is to create a field of healing intention in close collaboration with concerned clients to develop understanding & balanced energy for their animals. His expertise and years of tried and true natural solutions has resulted in many herbal remedies that anyone can apply.

The Sacredness of the Earth

an interview with Leslie M. Browning

Leslie M. Browning is a poet,writer, and longtime student of Religion, Spirituality, Nature, Language and Philosophy as such these themes permeate her work. Raised a Catholic, she studied both the Traditional and Apocrypha doctrine before her spiritual search eventually crossed into the other religions of the world, compelling her to investigate: Judaism, Tibetan Buddhism, Druidry and Shamanism.

In 2004, following several years of life-changing events, Browning made one of the defining choices of her life: to move away from world religion as a whole; taking with her what few truths she felt to be absolute as she followed her heart in search of a more intimate spirituality.

Browning is the author of the three-title Contemplative Poetry Series published with Little Red Tree Publishing: Oak Wise: Poetry Exploring an Ecological Faith, Ruminations at Twilight: Poetry Exploring the Sacred and The Barren Plain: Poetry Exploring the Reality of the Modern Wasteland. In the Autumn of 2010 The Sacred (a selection from Ruminations at Twilight) was nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

Interview with Jeffrey Lewis

an interview with Jeffrey Lewis

Jeffrey Lewis is a story teller and trader who has lived for many years close to Zuni and Hopi indigenous people learning about their traditions and stories:

“My role in the revitalization of these ancient routes has been a blessed one. I have brought macaw feathers from the Mayan jungles and worked to preserve that species. I have traded for weavings from the highlands of Guatemala and southern Mexico; shells from as far away as southeast Asia; corals from the Mediterranean. I have crawled into the mines at Cerillos and recovered turquoise; worked to re-establish the Zuni fetish trade.

All of this I have done. My commitment has always been that of preservationist: to preserve and protect the cultural rights of indigenous
people: to practice their religion as well their long and rich heritage as artists.”
