Beyond Hope and Fear- an Interview with Michael Dowd -October 2022

Finding Ground in “The Age of Threat”- an Interview with Michael Shaw 

The experience of living in collapsing systems is deeply challenging for all of us willing to look at such things. Meg Wheatley, with her long practice of service and spiritual practice, brings some profound insights into how to live in these times with grace, as well as how to meet our darker emotions well. I first came across Meg via a workshop she co-led with Pema Chodron more than 10 years ago. She was speaking about a Hopi Prophecy spoken to the world in 2000 describing the times we were living in and how to meet them. This prophecy forms the basis of the conversation.

What is a Servant Leader in this uncertain world?  International Servant Leadership Summit, October 2020
In this 18′ talk for the International Servant Leadership Summit, Meg reconnects us to our faith in the human spirit that inspires us to serve.  She also stresses that a new form of servant leadership is required.  When people are in so much fear and anxiety, we cannot lead from behind; we must move to the front and take charge.  As people learn to trust is and experience our faith in them, only then will they move out of fear and willingly step forward to participate.

Opening to the World: A conversation with Terry Patten  
Here is a video version of my podcast interview with Terry Patten; it has been enhanced with visuals, created by Michael Dowd and Connie Barlow, creators and hosts of the Post-Doom work and website.  Their purpose is to create “regenerative conversations exploring overshoot grief, grounding and gratitude.”  This site is rich in stimulating, provocative and penetrating videos of interviews with people who are thinking about how we journey through this time.  I highly recommend exploring many of the conversations posted there.  Scroll down the home page to find Meg’s.

Earth Talk, Schumacher College, Devon, U.K. Live stream July 15, 2020.
O Brave New World That Has Such People In It! 
As we observe and participate in our brave new world, what do we behold? Are we like Miranda who experiences only wonder? “How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is!” Or are we like Aldous Huxley who saw a world of technological domination, pacifying its citizens yet utterly meaningless? At this present moment, we know who we are, we know the world we want, but what is the world we have? What is possible now, and what is hopeful thinking? Using the patterns of history, how do we see more clearly in order to act more wisely? Who do we choose to be as we face reality, claim our role, and offer more sanity to this world?

Global Ecovillage Network online summit 
January 2020
This online summit at the beginning of February 2020, brought together members of the Global Ecovillage Network from nearly every nation on the planet.  The Global Ecovillage Network is a global association of people and communities dedicated to living “sustainable plus” lives by restoring the land and adding more to the environment than is taken.  For Meg, their work in building local and sustainable communities is proof positive of Berkana’s primary mantra: Whatever the problem, community is the answer.  In her video, Meg also speaks of Islands of Sanity, another description for these ecovillages.
