Are you motivated by eco-anxiety or eco-inspiration?


Do you worry that we’re facing disaster on planet Earth?


If you’re fearful about the future of humans and Earth, I’m offering you an alternate view.


Worry keeps us stuck. You can’t create, help or heal when you’re frozen in upset. Feeling concerned is valid, but staying in distress is disempowering.

We need to shift from Eco-anxiety into the empowered state of Eco-inspiration.

For half of the price of my regular mentoring sessions, you can learn 5 Steps to Move from Eco-Anxiety to Eco-Inspiration. Our 1-1 conversation will help you feel calm, purposeful, and inspired instead of scared about what’s happening on planet Earth. The consult comes with a pdf guide and e-book. You can sign up here.

I’m offering 15 consults at half of my regular price to help you shift from Eco-anxiety to Eco-inspiration. I believe you can move beyond your fears about the state of the world and into inspired contribution, whether your focus is at home, in your community, or on a larger scale.

Worrying about disasters keeps us in the energy that created them. A better way is to light up your heart and mind with the love for life on Earth that underlies your worry. Your loving inspiration allows you to then make an impactful contribution to regenerative solutions.

I’m here to support you in learning the 5 Steps to Move from Eco-anxiety to Eco-inspiration. Please join me and let’s start a Revolution of Eco-inspiration.



On the podcast this week is a beautiful interview with my flower essence teacher, Ameya Cohen of Woman Rising Mystery School and Gaia’s Essences. Hear Ameya’s insightful comments on the times we’re in and how plant medicine assists:

  • “Our return and connection to the Earth has to happen in order to create any kind of world that’s sustainable or thriving or serves the all and many.”
  • How flower essences work and why they support your true nature. “They are a gentle, beautiful way to work with the Earth and yourself. Every flower and every tree has specific wisdom that may relate to exactly what you are wanting to heal or expand into.”
Why Connecting to Nature Spirits is Important Now

Why Connecting to Nature Spirits is Important Now


Does it vulnerable, edgy, or strange to you to talk about nature spirits, or is it a welcome conversation?

Most of us don’t live in communities where there’s much–or any!–conversation about beings such as nature spirits. But to restore this planet’s health, along with human health, we need to return to collaboration with the beings who understand Earth better than we do.

It’s also joyful and revealing to communicate with the beings of nature–they are light, beautiful, and wise.

In the new episode of the Humans & Earth podcast, I talk about my recent conversations with nature spirits, why they became a forbidden topic due to the split between science and spirituality created by the Scientific Revolution, why it’s possible to embrace both spirituality and science, and how cultures around the world have acknowledged nature spirits.


Most importantly, I share:

  • What the nature spirits’ role is on planet Earth
  • 3 ways you can connect with and learn from them
  • And what I feel is the future of the human-nature spirit relationship.


A new monthly discussion group

I’m opening a new monthly discussion group on the first Sunday of each month at 5:00 Eastern.

It’s a place to discuss your explorations of your new, or upleveled, contributions to regeneration for people and planet. Anything you are trying at the personal, home or community level is a welcome topic.

It’s also a setting for questions and sharing about your forays into talking with and listening to beings such as nature spirits. You are welcome to bring any topic or question related to the human-nature relationship and ways we can restore this relationship, our planet, and ourselves.

To receive the Zoom link for our meeting at 5:00 Eastern on August 1, send $12 via PayPal to

I will facilitate discussion and Q&A.


The beings of nature are waiting to assist us with re-forming how we live on this planet. You can learn to engage with them, for your own good and the good of life on planet Earth. Please listen to and share this new episode to help us all move forward together.


For humans and Earth,

Regeneration is Possible

Regeneration is Possible

How can you be a builder of regenerative solutions for people and planet?


Regenerative rancher Doniga Markegard is showing the way. A mother, naturalist, tracker, and permaculturist, and author of her eloquent memoirs Dawn Again and Wolf Girl, Doniga dedicates her life to restoring grasslands in California’s Bay Area while sequestering carbon and providing nutrient-dense food for people, and habitat to countless native species.


In this week’s episode of Humans and Earth, Doniga and I talk about building healing solutions. She explains how relationship with nature, and respectful mimicry of nature, are at the heart of her family’s regenerative ranching practices.


Although we have become accustomed to agriculture causing damage to our planet and our health, a different way is available. Agriculture, in fact, can reverse climate change and help to heal our soil, air, water, human health, and native species.


As you listen to Doniga’s insights, can you consider how your own field of work or contribution may cause damage for people and planet, but instead could create regeneration?


Doniga models how to make the transition from despair and helplessness to identifying the area where you feel passionate about contributing. Her focus on the healing potential of regenerative agriculture allows her to steward thousands of acres of land and contribute to the regenerative endeavors of global corporations and nonprofits.


Agriculture is one of our biggest global sources of carbon emissions and damage to soil, air, water, and health. If agriculture can become regenerative, what else is possible?


I believe regenerative practices are possible in every area of our life and work, and they gathering momentum. Where do you feel called to contribute?



Transforming Your Life & Work for Humans & Earth

Transforming Your Life & Work for Humans & Earth

What if your most joyous life is also the life that offers most benefit to humanity and Earth?


My guest this week on the Humans & Earth Podcast, Dr. Ray Anthony James, has experienced this. He transformed his own life from stress and misalignment to building a holistic business that offers life-enhancing Moringa products. Through the scientifically established nutritional and healing benefits of Moringa, and his regenerative Moringa farm in Jamaica, Ray creates well-being for himself, his family, his customers, and the people, plants, and ecosystem on the Moringa farm.


My sense is that more and more of us are feeling called to craft life shifts that nourish our well-being and the well-being of people, plants, animals, and our planet. Ray shares how this process occurred for him, and you’ll find his story fascinating whether you’re seeking similar shifts for yourself, or whether you’re interested in regenerative farming or the amazing Moringa Tree. The Moringa is a beautiful example of how one being can bring tremendous healing to people and planet.

I encourage you to ponder how your own life is feeling to you. If we feel out of alignment with our inner truth and Earth, we can shift. We are more creative and powerful than we sometimes realize. We can encourage one another to live ever more fully in alignment with what we believe is true, good, and regenerative. This is the path to creating regeneration for ourselves and all life on Earth.


How Do You Co-Create New Earth?

How Do You Co-Create New Earth?

The most exciting thing occurring in our world right now is that we are learning how to change from being harmful to harmless beings. We are choosing to repair the world’s ills by creating new structures of reality. Today I’m talking about the concept of ‘New Earth’ and how you can contribute to ‘New Earth’ becoming reality.


I wholeheartedly believe that we are all here on Earth for a reason, and that our joint mission in the next century or so is to change our human ways of living on Earth from damaging to regenerative. We now understand that what we do to the air, soil, water, animals, and plants, we do to our own bodies and minds. We now understand, very clearly, that all humans, and all species, deserve equality, justice, peace, and the means to survive and thrive. People all over the planet, millions of us, and probably billions, are endeavoring to create healing and regeneration.

Whether you assess all of this from the perspectives of science and history and other scholarly disciplines, as I do, or from the perspective of spiritual teachings, which I also do, it’s evident that we now have clear sight of what needs to change on this planet. We have the knowledge, the skills, the technology, and the heart-based desire and self-understanding, to make these changes.


Thich Nhat Hanh has said, “When we know how to protect all beings, we will be protecting ourselves. A spiritual revolution is needed if we’re going to confront the environmental challenges that face us.”


And it’s happening. Never have we had billions of people all at once who recognize that we must stop harming each other and the Earth and choose our harmless, regenerative, just options instead. You might say that humanity’s heart has been opening for a while, and now we’re stepping further and further into heart-based action.

What is New Earth?  ‘New Earth’ is the higher vibrational reality we are bringing into being on our planet. It doesn’t mean leaving Earth. It means creating so much renewal, regeneration, healing, thriving, and flourishing for everyone, every species and being and system, that life on Earth will be almost unrecognizably different.

Many people believe New Earth already exists as of the past few years, and we simply choose to experience it based on our perspective, vibration, and ways of living. Michael Bernard Beckwith said recently:


“There is a world that’s already here: a world of love, harmony, peace, compassion.  No manner of stagnation can stop it.  No nefarious forces can prevent it.  It’s here, and you are being anointed, appointed, and deputized to do the work to see it.”


And I add, we are here not only to see this world, but to bring it into physical being for everyone. There’s nothing exclusive here: New Earth and its goodness are for everyone.

We actually have so much evidence that we’re moving in this regenerative direction that we can call “New Earth.”

In the new episode of the Humans and Earth podcast, I discuss numerous examples of the regenerative endeavors world-wide that are bringing ‘New Earth’ into being.

The possibilities for collaboratively co-creating New Earth are endless. They create harmless, restorative, healing, balanced, just, fair, and joyous ways for all living beings to co-exist on planet Earth. Where do you feel called to contribute?

Note that this is meant to be a joyful contribution, not a burdensome one—I’ll be talking about that a lot in the e-course I’m launching in early June, so watch for that. Part of the e-course focuses on helping you make your contribution in a way that is regenerative for you, not exhausting.


To stay with the basics for today:


If you want to be a New Earth Co-Creator, you need to do 3 things:

  1. Believe this is happening and that you’re meant to be part of it
  2. Vision it: you need a vision of which aspect of New Earth is most exciting to you and where you desire to contribute
  3. Find your way of actively contributing


What’s beautiful is that your way of contributing is unique and it doesn’t have to fit into anyone else’s box. You may maintain your current career and volunteer for a cause that excites you, or shift your home life in ways that contribute significantly to the greater good. (If you are advocating for justice and environmental sustainability at work and living at home in ways that are less burdensome on the planet and more connected to your community, you definitely are contributing.) You may feel called to make large or even radical changes in your work or lifestyle because you feel a strong mission within you that needs to be served.

My closing suggestion for you today is, dare to believe that New Earth is forming and that you are here to help co-create it and DELIGHT in it. We are creative beings who are here to make life on planet Earth more joyful, inclusive, just, and flourishing for everyone—all people, all species. You get to participate, and that is literally the privilege of many lifetimes

Having the Courage to Respond

Having the Courage to Respond

Are the children fed, the old people comfortable, and the women unafraid?


This week’s guest on Humans and Earth, Kalani Souza, offers these as essential questions to assess community well-being and resilience, as well as preparedness for climate change.

They’re questions that bring clear focus in a time of complex demands for humanity and Earth.

What I’ve been thinking about as I’ve published my conversation with Kalani is, how can we have the courage to respond creatively to the complexity we’re facing, to the needs and problems of the world?


Kalani’s life and work have focused on community resilience, cross-cultural understanding, and protection of Earth’s resources. He exemplifies having the courage to respond creatively to problems. He also exemplifies the courage to defend what you love.


I invite you this week to ask yourself, “How can I have the courage to respond creatively to a problem I’m concerned about on this gorgeous planet we call Earth? How can I have the courage to defend or advocate for what I love?”


In coming weeks I’ll be offering you two resources to help you channel your creativity and love into practical actions that benefit life on Earth.

Watch for my free webinar on June 6:

Collaboration with Earth: How to Nurture Regeneration for the Planet and Yourself. The sign-up page will be available soon. The webinar will help you discern how to move forward if you believe things can be better here on Earth and you’re ready to contribute at your next level. If you’re yearning to contribute to regeneration of the natural world and human health, and you wonder if your own life can improve as you step into your authentic, soulful contribution, you’ll benefit from the webinar.


My new course, Collaboration with Earth: How to Nurture Regeneration for the Planet and Yourself, opens on June 14. The 7-week live course will help you transform your heart-centered vision into sustainable and regenerative actions that nourish you, other people, and all forms of life on our planet. Through exploring the 7 Steps of Collaboration with Earth, you will attain confirmation that your compassionate vision is valid and actionable, and you’ll learn how to translate Wise Focus and Reverent Relationship into a Regenerative Vision. You’ll also gain confidence in implementing your contribution to regenerating people + planet with Soulful Sovereignty and Support, not the burnout that can occur with an activist approach. The course will give you support in exploring Sacred Collaboration with people, plants, animals, other-dimensional beings, and Earth herself in order to create Reverent Regenerative Outcomes. The course will be offered this June-July at the introductory price of $89.


If you are looking at the world right now and wondering whether we’re headed into regeneration or decline, make sure you’ve read A Guide to Informed Optimism: Things to Know and Explore to Feel Hopeful about the Human Future with Earth. It will help you keep your focus on all the goodness that is developing in the human-Earth relationship, and give you ideas for finding your next way of contributing.

For Humans and Earth,
