    Sarah Drew on Virtual Reality, Rewilding And Feminine Wisdom

    Sarah Drew on Virtual Reality, Rewilding And Feminine Wisdom

    How can technology and story expand cultural possibilities of the future? 
    In this episode Amisha talks with Sarah Drew, author, teacher and creator of visionary media. Sarah catalyses powerful blueprints for the future deeply rooted in the gnosis of the past. She is the author of the eco-feminist novel, GAIA CODEX, and a featured speaker at the graduate level and at Google, ABC Deepak Homebase, The Assemblage and Bioneers. She is currently a popular teacher and mentor for women worldwide on topics such as Feminine Wisdom and  Evolutionary Culture.
    Together Amisha and Sarah recognise the current season as a gift for regenesis, reclamation and reconnection into ways of being innate to our nature and grounded in infinite potentiality of our souls. It is a time to cultivate quiet practices that bring  us into resonance with awe-inspiring creativity, higher consciousness and Earth.  
    Sarah shares insights into her meditative writing practice that opens doorways to feminine wisdom and blueprints for the future through myths, stories, alchemy and science. Her eco-feminist novel ‘GAIA CODEX’, is a visionary activation into feminine wisdom as a collective experience in story form, a book club  in a tree planting sisterhood, and experiences in multiple media mediums.
    As students of goddesses and archetypes, they reveal that embodying feminine wisdom means to be aligned with our courage, our inner calling and potentiality so we can bring forth clarity of vision, creativity and beauty. It means to practice discernment that can be somatically guided, so we may cultivate ideas that enhance life for all.
    We learn that Virtual Reality can provide us with eye-opening and visceral experiences that give us more agency by growing our consciousness, empathy and communion with nature. Such fertile applications of technology are invitations for rewilding our evolutionary paths to remedy the extractive ‘hunger culture’ of our times.

    Miki Agrawal on Disruption, Social Entrepreneurship and Audacious Resilience

    Miki Agrawal on Disruption, Social Entrepreneurship and Audacious Resilience

    How do you bring your idea to life and make disruptive change in this world?
    In this conversation Amisha talks to Miki Agrawal, social entrepreneur and founder of acclaimed social enterprises: WILD, THINX & TUSHY. She is also the author of the #1 best-selling books ‘DO COOL SH*T’ and ‘DISRUPT-HER’, a modern manifesto that questions & confronts thirteen major areas in our lives - money, career, relationships, friendships, the culture of owning “more stuff”, perfectionism, takedown culture etc - and disrupts them one by one.
    Miki shares her experiences of growing powerful businesses birthed as responses to social and environmental challenges, designed as solutions that disrupt cultural norms by moving society forward without band aids. She shares how she understands failure as revelation and her entrepreneurial paths as learning experiences that are about growing partnerships and business models that can be awesome spaces for exploring ground-breaking work, where we can celebrate the soulful parts of our existence and human experience. 
    Together they speak about take down culture that’s fired up by social media etiquette of shaming and perfectionism resulting in generations caught up in fear of stepping out, taking creative risks and leaps with new ideas. They reveal that the antidotes are innovations and social media conversations focused on celebrating and building community, human connection, belonging and wellness of body and spirit. Miki shares the story behind creating TUSHY, the company that has revolutionised how we poop by reducing use of toilet paper, and providing toilets to communities that didn’t have them. 
    We learn that we can reclaim our sense of agency, worthiness and creativity by unwiring our indoctrinations guided by the principles of the disrupter triangle, explained in Miki’s book ‘‘DISRUPT-HER’. They share that listening to our intuition, resting and healing is an investment that will see us act from a place of abundance, trust and solidarity and participate in equality and wealth formation.

    Charlotte Pulver on Front Line Immune Support, Water And Pilgrimage

    Charlotte Pulver on Front Line Immune Support, Water And Pilgrimage

    What medicines may we use to restore our threads of connections with ourselves, each other and Earth?
    In this episode Amisha talks to Charlotte Pulver, a modern day alchemist and lover of the waters. Being born into a lineage of apothecarians, she has a background in natural healthcare, studying and practising various medical systems of healing for 20+ years. She has been hosting water ceremonies and pilgrimages and is currently writing a book on London’s springs and wells.
    Charlotte shares how her personal journey with nature’s elixirs and potions intuitively unfolded a life path into studies with various healers, Tibetan and Mayan medicine initiating her present work with mental and emotional trauma, and gynecology based on Mayan self care practices, Pranayama and meditation practices.
    Together they explore opportunities and examples for alternative healing traditions during the current pandemic and how the powers of allopathic and alternative medicines can work in synergy to support our health. Charlotte reveals her creation of an immune support packs for frontline workers bringing together alternative medicines and vitamin essentials that are available, affordable and that work.
    She shares her work with pilgrimages; prayers in motion and magical quests exploring the springs, wells and waterways of London. They are ways to learn the deeper meanings of ancestral and sacred places in the city whilst honouring our connections with the land through rituals of reciprocity.
    We learn that connecting with mineral rich water sources is deeply healing and reminds us who we are. The pandemic has raised how we view the world and our place within, and our capacity for radical transformation lies in embracing the unknown, our interconnectedness and bodies as a whole ecosystem like a forest. We have to be in right relationship with Earth by connecting to the roots of things, our intuition and our land, and take responsibility for our health with good soil needs, good food, good internal feeding, mineral rich watering and good immune support drawing from the Earth’s apothecary with reciprocity.

    Alnoor Ladha on Post-Capitalism, Mystical Anarchism And Solidarity

    Alnoor Ladha on Post-Capitalism, Mystical Anarchism And Solidarity

    How can we re-contextualise our relationships and interactions in a time of post truth and late stage capitalism?
    In this episode Amisha talks with Alnoor Ladha, political strategist, writer and activist. Alnoor’s work focuses on the intersection of political organising, systems thinking, structural change and narrative work. He comes from a Sufi lineage and writes about the crossroads of politics and spirituality in troubled times. He was the Executive Director of The Rules (TR), is a co-founder of Tierra Valiente and a board member of Culture Hack Labs and The Emergence Network.
    Amisha and Alnoor contemplate our current moment of polarisation as an initiation into non-dualistic thought and being, where we face our personal role in the destruction, entitlement and victimhood paradigms of late stage capitalism, so we may become comfortable with its complexities and garner spiritual practice from its currents.
    Alnoor believes that our spiritual work accelerates our political work and that solidarity is not a political concept, but an embodied spiritual practice and a pathway to spiritual development. He reveals that in order to re-contextualise our dominant political and value constructs, we need to replace these with containers of deprogramming and contemplation, where our ideas can transcend traditions of ownership, growth, accumulation, destruction, and where we can plant roots in shared values, so our souls can do the work we being called forth to do.
    We learn that we have to take back responsibilities of meaning making, so that we may birth new stories and context moving beyond our belief systems of false gods. Synthesising wisdom traditions with Western technique may be the way to remove the psychosis of colonisation, hierarchy, domination and extraction; and to be in dialogue with our living planet and in practice of solidarity, contemplation, spiritual practices, meditation or work with psychedelics will guide us to become initiated into the bounty of life that we have been entrusted with.

    Melissa Sterry on Eco Futurism, Mythology And Creative Science

    Melissa Sterry on Eco Futurism, Mythology And Creative Science

    In this episode Amisha talks to Dr. Melissa Sterry, transdisciplinary design scientist and complex systems theorist Dr. Melissa Sterry is recognised as a world-leading authority on the science, technology, design, and thinking that could help humanity to build a better world. One of the world’s most high profile futurists, Melissa specialises in futures in the built environment, utilities, manufacturing, engineering, design, publishing, media and communications, she has contributed to groundbreaking projects and publications.
    Amisha and Melissa explore possibilities for our future and how we can meet the challenges and potential of our time with a renaissance of science and creativity. Together they speak of how the adversity of current events is showing us our interdependence and forcing us to shed that, which is no longer working and to design solutions for cultural transformation and for a better life.
    Melissa takes us on an eye-opening journey of examples how nature and cultures inspire her insights into eco-mimicry and how her latest research weaves together complex systems of ancient myths with the science of the species. She speaks of fire science and the importance of ancestral understanding of our landscapes, nature’s elements and collaborations for coming years as our climate and our landscapes are adapting to dramatic changes and our relationship with our world is changing swiftly.
    We learn that AI provides profound ways to read changes to our global landscapes helping us understand what we are experiencing, how to work with it and how to build positive relationships with nature. She addresses climate skepticism and confusing theories on climate change and how our fear of change is showing up in divided humanity. She believes the less entangled in this fear, the better we will fuel future systems with vision, innovation and kindness inspired by our ancestors, in harmony with our natural world and guided by our North Stars.

    Mandeep Rai on Leadership, Core Values And Care For The Elderly

    How can values form our pathways into future society?
    In this episode Amisha talks to Mandeep Rai, a global authority on values and author of ‘The Values Compass: What 101 Countries Teach Us About Purpose, Life and Leadership’ taking us on a journey to 101 countries around the world, highlighting a single, unique value that has defined each nation's history, culture, and global influence. She has travelled to more that 150 countries and reported as a journalist for the BBC World Service and Reuters, amongst others.

    Amisha and Mandeep speak about how values form who we are, how they are the foundations that bring out the best in our different cultures and how they are a celebration of all the beauty we hold in our hearts.

    They share that we may change and adjust our values in small steps and in big shifts according to our life cycles. Mandeep’s book travels through a diversity and variety of values from allover the world guiding us to connect us with our own choice of values. She believes that when we become clear of our values we live from a place of integrity and depth necessary for stepping into true leadership.

    Together they explore how the current season during this pandemic presents the opportunity to assess and align ourselves with our values in order to contribute our gifts and talents. We learn that living authentically in our values is a gift of service to our communities. This presents an invitation to build a more equal society rooted in community, where we honour the values and cultural practices of our ancestors bringing these forth for the future care of those vulnerable in our midst, especially the elderly, who’s shoulders we stand on.
