    Mindful Shift - a conversation wtih Joan Maloof

    in Spirituality

    Today we will be joined by Joan Maloof who wrote the amazing "Teaching the Trees: Lessons from the Forest".  This is a wonderful, detailed description of the entire systems of the forest starting with the tree, how is just a stand of trees different from a forest and why is it important.  I loved this book!  She can explain why every part of the system matters.   Joan studied Plant Science at the University of Delaware, Environmental Science at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and Ecology at the University of Maryland College Park. She has published research articles about pollination biology in the journals Ecology and The American Journal of Botany (among others). Since 2002 she has expanded her ecological studies into the forest. Her book "Teaching the Trees: Lessons from the Forest" (University of Georgia Press, 2005) won an Honorable Mention from the Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment. Her second book, "Among the Ancients: Adventures in the Eastern Old-Growth Forests," was published in April 2011 by Ruka Press.

    Joan is currently developing a network of forests across the US which will remain forever unlogged and open to the public, called the Old-Growth Forest Network. Please visit the webpage: www.oldgrowthforest.net for more information.  Please join us!        If you have any questions or comments for me contact me at amlovegren@aol.com.  I would love to hear from you!  Be sure and mark it Mindful Shift - peace out, Andrea

    Listening with Presence with Pamela Saari

    in Management

    The act of listening with presence is one of the most powerful thing we can offer ourselves and others. However, consciously listening is easier said than done! Without even knowing it, almost everyone listens through a set of “filters and shields” in the form of trying to fix, rebut, minimize, compare, or finding fault. 


    When we listen with more consciousness, our exhanges become more authenitc, creative and effective. In this engaging podcast, we will discuss how we can listen more objectively to ourselves and to those in our lives.
