Thank you for visiting Edgetalkers. We are various voices, speaking about various subjects, but always trying to bring our conversations to the edge. The edge of what? Our subjects include sustainability on our planet, the living Mother Earth, consciousness, and conversation as a conscious entity, always with the underlying query, as Charles Eisenstein puts it, "What's it like to be you?"
What a joy to talk with Matt Venuti, one of my musical heroes, and all-around fantastic human being. Matt's musical journey intertwines with his spiritual growth and he speaks with honesty about the joys and challenges of his life--revealing a powerful moment when he learned to choose empowerment over embitterment.
His tour cut short by the pandemic

"The Coronation" Contemplation and Conversation
Edgetalkers is back, landing like the rest of us in the middle of Coronavirus. We use Charles Eisenstein's essay, "The Coronation" as a centerpiece for a conversation with Rachelle Goering, Robert Bengtson and Jesse Blazo. Enjoy this freewheeling, somewhat rabbit-hole-laden journey in the time of Covid. Is this really a pandemic? What's the larger picture? What's more fear-mongering than telling people to stay home or die?

Filmmaker Mattias Olsson -- Campfire Stories
"Imagine you’ve left the old story behind. You know, the one that takes for granted that earth belongs to humans to exploit at will. You’ve started a hike into the unknown. There’s no map and for all you know you could be going in circles. When you turn around and see the smog hanging over the world you left behind, you realize that even if you’re lost and without a map, you’re still on the right track..."
