Æcorn’s mission is for everyone to be able to enjoy an apertif regardless of the alcohol content and they are all created with food in mind. We could definitely do with a bit of self care right now so treat yourself and head to their website as they taste Ae-mazing: https://www.aecorndrinks.com/

    52. How is cultural change affecting behaviour and our mental health with Dr Robert Gilman

    52. How is cultural change affecting behaviour and our mental health with Dr Robert Gilman

    On today’s episode I am joined by the absolutely fascinating, Dr Robert Gilman. Dr Robert Gilman is an astrophysicist, sustainability pioneer and someone who most definitely qualifies as a cultural “change-agent”. He is now on a mission to help communities around the world understand cultural transitions and encourages everyone to embody practices that will lead to a humane and sustainable future.


    He discusses how this requires more understanding and talks about how we should all embody what he calls the 3 harmonies:
    - The harmony within ourselves
    - The harmony with others
    - The harmony with nature


    Robert’s passion for a sustainable world is also passed on through his course, Bright Future Now where he teaches his students how to put into practice these 3 harmonies and gain tools for the journey from the Empire Era into the Planetary Era (he explains these eras in the podcast). 


    After speaking with Robert, I was blown away by his knowledge and his outlook on life and highly recommend you to go to his website (context.org) to find out more.


    A little bit about the NOT PERFECT podcast. Thank you for reading this and thank you for being here. The intention for this podcast is to share conversations on the subjects that can nurture our life from the inside. Just like physical exercise takes work and commitment, I believe our emotional health requires the same attention. Life throws curve balls unexpectedly and these can feel much more manageable when we know more about our mind. I hope these episodes are helpful in sharing tools, tips and insights into our brilliant hardware that can feel faulty but always fixable. I would love to hear from you if you have any feedback or guest suggestions, please find me on instagram @poppyjamie and @happynotperfect.
