Alden Hough joins Tall Paul to share with us his "Ecological Awakening." He is a graduate of the internationally renowned Center for Agro-ecology and Sustainable Food Systems program at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Following an extended period of travel in Asia, Alden found that traditional farming practices had been largely abandoned and replaced by the globalization of Western agriculture. This was a wake up call, seeing that even in the most remote areas of India, hybrid seeds, chemical fertilizers, and pesticides were the norm. He began to dedicate his path to organic gardening practices, regenerating the soil, social justice, and acting as if the earth really matters.
Alden heads the EcoEducation and Permaculture Programs at Sky Mountain Institute in Harmony Grove - Escondido, CA. He will be holding the San Diego Permaculture Convergence at Sky Mountain Institute November 9-10, 2013.

Charlotte View Internet Radio is proud to support Clean Drops, with an interview about this organization that provides clean water to countries around the world. Please welcome, Naqash Hasan Choudhery. a UNCC College student with a big heart and solid determination.
Clean Drops has a simple mission: to give more people in the world clean water to drink. While this is a trivial quest in a developed country, without governmental support or social infrastructure, it can be incredibly difficult. Clean Drops aims to help communities develop sustainable, ecological, simple, easy-to-maintain systems to get clean drinking water to everyone who needs it.
Water is one of the most essential elements needed for us to survive. For a majority of us we just have to turn on the faucet to quench our thirst, take a warm shower, wash our clothes, or flush the toilet. We fail to even think how fortunate we are to be able to enjoy this luxury. However for many people around the world it isn't as easy as turning on the faucet.
Around the world close to a billion people lack access to clean water for them their way of gaining clean water consists of many long tiring walks and carrying the water back, or for some they just have to use whatever water they can find. Water is one of the three basic necessities of life.

The Disadvantages of Globalization http://www.manufacturing.net/articles/2010/06/the-pros-and-cons-of-globalization
1. “The general complaint about globalization is that it has made the rich richer while making the non-rich poorer. It is wonderful for managers and investors, but hell on workers and nature.”1
2. Multinational corporations are accused of social injustice, unfair working conditions (including slave labor wages and poor living and working conditions), as well as a lack of concern for the environment, mismanagement of natural resources, and ecological damage.
3. Multinational corporations which were previously restricted to commercial activities are increasingly influencing political decisions. Many think there is a threat of corporations ruling the world because they are gaining power due to globalization. (and more, keep reading)

Waterpower is the largest source of renewable energy in the world today, and microhydro is a mature, proven technology that can provide clean, inexpensive, renewable energy with little or no impact on the environment. Serious Microhydro brings you dozens of firsthand stories of energy independence covering a complete range of systems, from household pressure sites to higher pressure installations capable of powering a farm, business, or small neighborhood. Topics include: Low head and medium head sites, AC-only systems as well as ones using a battery/inverter subsystem, Stand alone power supply or grid intertie setups, and Hybrid systems (combined with photovoltaics or wind). With all the variables involved in microhydro, there is no “typical” system. These case studies represent the most comprehensive collection of knowledge and experience available for tailoring an installation to meet the needs of a site and its owner or operators. If you are considering building a system, you are bound to find a wealth of creative solutions appropriate to your own circumstances. Serious Microhydro shows how scores of people are achieving a high standard of living from local energy sources with a minimal ecological footprint. It has particular appeal to homeowners, teachers, renewable energy professionals, activists, and decision makers who want to understand the technology from a “hands-on” perspective. In this segment of The Clean Energy View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Scott Davis, an award-winning renewable energy project developer with decades of experience operating, installing, designing, selling, and teaching microhydro technology. He is a founder and president of Friends of Renewable Energy BC, and the author of Microhydro: Clean Power From Water.

"Holy Universe": A New Story of Creation for the Heart, Soul, and Spirit. After a 15-year gestation period, David Christopher has birthed a book grounded in ecological science and "big history" that, through the magic of story and the lyricism of poetry, offers a re-visioning of a world that appears to have gone rogue in the service of unlimited power and insatiable greed. David develops an alternative way of viewing our situation through a dialogue between a Sage and a Seeker that suggests we are in an evolutionary process proceeding from ancient mind to modern mind and on to what he has termed planetary mind. Those of us who consider ourselves "spiritual but not religious" owe him a debt of gratitude
ENVISION THIS: When we surrender the need to figure it all out, and cultivate the ability to let it all in, then our earth walk becomes a sacred dance of healing service on the planet.
Peruvian Shaman, don Oscar Miro-Quesada calls all of us who have an earnest desire to walk a path as spiritual pioneers his “cherished shamanic bodhisattva kin.” He wholeheartedly welcomes us to The Heart of the Healer: “Your presence in the unfolding of a spiritually evolved humanity is being celebrated throughout all worlds.“
We last interviewed don Oscar regarding his book, Lessons In Courage: Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Life. We barely touched on his other accomplishments. He is visionary founder of The Heart of the Healer Alliance, originator of Pachakuti Mesa Tradition cross-cultural shamanism, and a founder of Sipapu, a beautiful Retreat Center in the heart of the beautiful Madre de Dios rainforest in Peru. “The vision of Sipapu is to regenerate earth-honoring communities by demonstrating ecological sustainability and cultivating the ceremonial arts of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition. The mission of Sipapu is to serve individuals and communities through educational and experiential residential experiences and field programs that nurture deep connections between earth, sacred community, and spiritual growth.” In September, he will lead an extraordinary journey to the Amazon Rainforest, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Challwanka, and Nazca.
“Don Oscar is a master at creating sacred community using the magic of joy, love and compassion as the strands that gently weave us together as a planetary family.” We are honored to share this warm, loving human being who deeply cares about people and our planet again with our listeners.
Astrology Beyond the Shift with Alison Chester Lambert (20 min)
BBC astrologer, and founder of the Midlands School of Astrology in the UK, Alison Chester-Lambert is known for predicting personal and planetary events with “deadly accuracy.” Back by popular request, Alison will be providing a regular monthly update on how the transiting planets are going to be affecting us on a personal and global level as we move through the constantly changing energies of the Shift.
Sacred Economics: Money, Gifts, and Society in the Age of Transition with Charles Eisenstein
In his book, Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition, Eisenstein traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth. Today, these trends have reached their extreme, but in the wake of their collapse, Eisenstein says, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.
In this episode, Sandie and Charles Eisenstein discuss:
*The history and corruption of “money”
*How our money system will have to change—and is already changing—to embody this transition.
*The New Economics—negative-interest currencies, local currencies, resource-based economics, gift economies, and the restoration of the commons
*How those concerned with “right livelihood” can live according to their ideals in a world seemingly ruled by money
*What you can do to help create a new vision for a new future and make the world a better place
Listen to the show on the Awakening Zone Network here:
ENVISION THIS: consciousness creates our world!
Sol Luckman is a prolific visual artist and innovator in the field of ink painting as well as a critically acclaimed author of fiction and nonfiction. Sol’s paintings are expressionistic works on canvas and paper that inspire the imagination, uplift the spirit, and amaze the eye. His vision of the world is deeply shamanic, as a place not wholly solid, but informed by a kinetic vibrancy that is fundamentally conscious.
Sol’s non-fiction presents a conscious healing method called Regenetics, allowing us to potentiate our DNA. He presents an unparalleled synthesis of modern and ancient healing wisdom for anyone interested in alternative medicine, energy healing, consciousness research, quantum biology, human evolution, or personal enlightenment. Sol’s Conscious Healing is a bestselling, reader-friendly narrative that details his experience of chronic illness and miraculous recovery thanks to Regenetics. It provides scientific substantiation for the work of alternative healers from many orientations, clearly and convincingly making the case for energy work in general.
In his fiction, Sol calls on us to awaken from our mass cultural illusion before we self-destruct. His newest novel, Snooze, takes us on a great adventure that opens our minds to the possibility that imagination, dreams, visions, paranormal experiences, and lucid dreaming may hold the keys to resolving the ecological, economic, social, and political deadlocks we are currently experiencing. His Beginners Luke series illustrate the power of living in the imagination—for only through it can we reinvent ourselves and our world.

Mukilteo, WA – In the 21st century, our society faces critical problems regarding its sustainability. Population growth and aging, shortage of clean water, diminishing energy sources, corruption on rise, failing institutes, failing states, the increasing gap between rich and poor, and environmental issues are critical factors related to various societal systems, which are essential for sustainability.
In order to develop solutions for these great challenges and societal problems, we need a framework and models that are as complex as reality, a holistic approach that integrates any variable that affects a societal system in use to help engineer a more sustainable society.
The World Organization of Societal Systems Engineers (WOSSE) claims to have developed such a framework that integrates various models for sustainable societal systems development. Dr. Dieter Feldmann and his partner Naseer A. Choudhry, both from WOSSE, have developed the methodology of Societal Systems Engineering to address the problems of societal and business sustainability in today’s era of dynamic globalization.
“All the elements which affect business as well as societal sustainability are constantly in flux, that’s why we call it the dynamics of globalization,” says Dr. Feldmann. “The mistake many people make is they wish to be stable, not dynamic, because dynamics are too difficult to digest and predict.”
WOSSE’s model can be applied to solve societal systems problems, including sustainability, addressing socio-economic, socio-ecological, socio-technological and socio-cultural aspects, all critical for a sustainable society in the age of global commonwealth.
We'll explore with Shelley Sacks how socially engaged artistic processes can help individuals and communities find new ways new ways of engaging with the world to create a more sustainable future. Plus, we'll find out more about two of her key projects -- University of the Trees, and Exchange Values.
Shelley will lead a three-day "University of the Trees: U.S. Summer Institute 2014" from August 1 to 3, 2014, at the Jane Goodall Center at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, Connecticut, USA. This is the first intensive training on University of the Trees to be held in the U.S., building on similar trainings Shelley has done in England, Germany and South Africa. Space is limited to a small cohort of co-learners.
Shelley Sacks works internationally in connective practices and social sculpture, exploring the relationship between imagination and transformation, the individual and community, and rethinking responsibility as an ability-to-respond. She leads a master’s and doctoral program in social sculpture at Oxford Brookes University, where she is Professor of Social Sculpture and Interdisciplinary Arts, and Director of the Social Sculpture Research Unit. She is the co-author of the recently released Atlas of the Poetic Continent: Pathways to Ecological Citizenship.
In California, the skies are litearly burning, from the foothills of the high desert, to the verdant shorelines of the coast. It'a ApoCaliypse Now. In Texas, record droughts are portending to 1,000 years of parched atmosphere aka "The Superdrought." Are these tinderbox conditions the effects of Global Warming or is something darker, even more insidious taking place? Are the thick and heavy spew from jets known as chemtrails having a role in all of this ecological chaos?
On today's show, I wiill be talking with Alexandra May Hunter and Deborah Whitman on this very subject.
Ms. Whitman is the President of Environmental Voices, a California NFP based out Davis, California. Her website is : www.environmentalvoices.org . She is a veteran anti-geoengineering activist and has been at this issue for a good 10 years. She also frequently collaborates with Dane Wigington on speaking events. Her specialty is speaking about the health and botanical effects of the spray program.
Alexandra May Hunter is the founder of http://www.stopsprayingaz.com. The purpose of this group is to build awareness with fact based education, gain a critical mass of Arizona residents, obtain signatures from the AZ. residents for demanding that the AZ. Legislation address this issue, conduct an independent investigation, provide truthful disclosure and transparency and permanently end this program is the sky above the state of Arizona.
Please join me as these two, dedicated, geoengineering activists share with us the dire straits of the Earth's ecology and the psychopathic madness put in place to fix it all.
