    Rewilding Our Hearts: Building Pathways of Compassion and Coexistence

    in Spirituality

    In wildlife conservation work, rewilding refers to habitat restoration and the creation of corridors between preserved lands to allow declining populations to rebound.


    HOW CAN REWILDING APPLY TO HUMAN ATTITUDES?


    Unless we rewild ourselves, becoming profoundly reconnected to nature and fundamentally shifting our consciousness, our conservation efforts will have but limited impact.


    As we transition to acting from the inside out, our efforts become powerfully proactive, moving beyond simply reacting to current crises. Ultimately, rewilding invites us to become re-enchanted with the world and, by dissolving false boundaries, to truly connect with both nature and ourselves.

    Westchester On the Level with Narog and Aris

    in News

    The “featured” BlogTalkRadio program, “Westchester On the Level with Narog and Aris”, opens the Thursday, February 26th broadcast day at 10:00 a.m. with a half-hour summation of international news and at 10:30am Host Hezi Aris pivots to Mount Vernon City Councilman Richard Thomas.


    At the top of the second hour, from 11am to 12Noon, we are joined by Blue Ridge Press Editor Glenn Scherer whose focus is environmental news despite its diminished coverage in major media, including TV, major newspapers, and even the Internet. We’ll explore past scientific integrity and the recent uncertainty that has caused a lack of trust in reporting.  Editor Glenn Scherer’s demeanor and the milieu he has created will also be explored to gain insight to the challenges presented to a nation of curious to glean the facts yet are lost in not knowing to whom to turn. Exploring the aforementioned will lead us to the concerns of fracking, climate change, clean water, habitat  preservation, and the political insinuation into the vast subject matter.


    We’ll learn how language is used in inflaming emotions and juxtaposed that report facts with gravitas; and how to distill the differences.


    We’ll explore the diminution of coverage of the environment and whether there is a market of people who want to learn more or if science delving into environmental concerns are no longer trusted? and if so, why?


    Lastly, we learn the modality Blue Ridge Press incorporates to reach readers interested in environmental issues / concerns.


    Your participation is shamelessly solicited; share your perspective; ask a question, be heard! Place your call to (347) 205-9201. You are only asked to please stay on topic.

    Live Natural Live Well

    in Health

    Cowspiracy is the documentary everyone needs to watch. Filmakers Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn will be joining me for an in depth interview on the impact of animal agricultural on our environment and why everyone seems to be ignoring it.


    Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.


    As Andersen approaches leaders in the environmental movement, he increasingly uncovers what appears to be an intentional refusal to discuss the issue of animal agriculture, while industry whistleblowers and watchdogs warn him of the risks to his freedom and even his life if he dares to persist.


    As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, and offers a path to global sustainability for a growing population.
