“People are hungry to tell their stories, and people are hungry to hear them. Deep down we are all longing for a deeper connection and a flourishing planet.”
Too much of a stretch?
Give it a go. Start tuning your ear to the earth. Everybody has their own story of a nature connection. It might just be about you reconnecting with that. For we are all nature and we are surrounded by it.
The podcast will help you, in both pragmatic and poetic ways. Celebrating its anniversary on Earth Day, it is a revolution of love. Of ourselves, each other and the earth that is our home.
It’s a mix
It is an eclectic mix of stories and perspectives, from a 3 minute reflection on what a wise person once said, to 210 cumulative minutes with true elder Ray Hillis. From 10-year-old Malu talking about her chicken, to Jean-Claude the Daoist chemical engineer and business leader, quoting Einstein and going out to nature for his board-meetings with his business partner to come up with creative solutions. And all the people leading organisations and guiding people on rites of passage, and the people they have inspired.
Given the integrated nature of things, subjects are wide ranging. Themes include self-awareness and ‘waking up’; listening to our intuition; restoring our natural balance; corporate disconnection; loneliness and belonging; transforming pain; going solo in nature; journeying into adulthood; reimagining ourselves and the planet and many more.
The hardest part has been which category to post the podcast in. The nature of nature is that it is integrated. Science, Nature, Environment, Climate Change, Relationships, Leadership, Health and Wellbeing? Which one to choose!
I settled on self-help. Because it does start with ourselves.
It’s easy to find
Listen, share, tell it to the wind!
And in the meantime, go out and enjoy nature, one conversation at a time.
