The Mind and Climate Change With Lauren Xie

December 19, 2017

In this episode you hear Mara interview Lauren Xie, who we met at our trip to Oxford to speak at the Emerge Conference. After the conference, Lauren approached us, and told us how important and relevant the mind was if we are trying to educate people about Climate Change. 

In other words:
- If we want people behaving in a sustainable way, making sustainable choices, it begins within the mind. 
- If we want to collaborate in creating those solutions, it begins within the mind. 
- If we want to decrease and in some cases eradicate excessive consumption and greed, it begins within the mind. 
- If we want people to go from thinking about themselves to thinking about the globe, it begins within the mind. 

If climate change was caused by humans, the level our collective thinking was the source. If we want to create new change, we need a new level of thinking. 

There is no other way.

Global Problems: From symptom to solutions

November 1, 2017

This podcast is a recording from a keynote Mara and Eirik did in a One Solution Conference in Cape Town in april of 2017. This talk will illuminate how the chronic global issues of our time are only understood and treated at the source: the human mind. Seeing and treating the source of our global issues is the only hope for creating a new world for future generations.

Any system in life is only understood and improved when human beings can see the fundamental source, or starting point of it. Consider the foundation of a building, or the human immune system as examples. Painting over cracks in the walls of a house with a faulty foundation is just going to lead to more work in the future, and eventually larger structural problems.

Similarly, continuing to put cortisone cream on a persistent rash is not going to treat the issue at the source. It will only provide temporary relief, but no real understanding of what is the underlying cause of inflammation, and therefore no understanding of how to cure it at the source.

Any time humans better understand the most fundamental source of an issue, then and only then is real and lasting progress made. The current state of the world is trapped in an ineffective cycle of dealing with the symptoms of socio-global issues, from war and conflict to inequality, poverty, and mental health issues without understanding and addressing them at the source.

The Global Immunesystem

November 1, 2017

We are always searching for what is the ONE thing that affects everything, and this podcast will be about how important that search is. To visualize this we use the metaphor of an immunesystem - if we increase our global mental immunesystem all of our global issues improve. This is true for your body, for your family, for a community, for a business, and for the world. When humans feel better, we do better - and when we are healthy, we make healthy decisions. It's as simple as that, but why are most of us spending time fixing what went wrong, rather than preventing it from happening in the first place?
