Money and the Divine Masculine

I recently attended a ceremony at the Tamera village in Portugal in which the officiant invoked “the healing of money.” Immediately a vivid image popped into my head of a man, vast and muscular, bound to the earth with stakes and tethers, straining with every atom of his strength to free himself and rise up.

Sacred Economics: Money, the Gift and Society in the Age of Transition

Transcribed Talk from January 13, 2012 at “The Hive” in Vancouver, BC.   Thank you for such a warm welcome. I’m quite amazed actually. I don’t think I’ve ever spoken to this large a crowd that was just here for me. I’ve spoken to more people at conferences, but that wasn’t just for me. Part […]

It is fire that has allowed us to smelt metals, to purify chemicals, to power cars, trains and airplanes, to pave over the earth and travel to the moon.

Who Will Collect the Garbage?

I had a conversation today about the beautiful world that I believe will be born out of the converging crises of our age.
