“We have to come together and the only way to come together is ultimately through a shared story of what's real, what's sacred, what's important, and who we are.” -Charles Eisenstein

Charles Eisenstein joins host Troy Carter for a heart-centered and thought-provoking conversation about humanity’s relationship with nature and the role of storytelling in creating our reality. Charles drops many truth bombs as he speaks about the blindspots and limitations of carbon reduction efforts, computer modeling, and economics when it comes to addressing the climate crisis. He also takes listeners deep into the richness of being human as he speaks of joy, grief, loss, love, and the immense beauty of life. This discussion is truly a journey that will leave you feeling empowered as a co-author of humanity’s emerging new story of a harmonious and reciprocal relationship with the Earth.
