It is a privilege to be alive in this time when we can choose to take part in the self-healing of our world.

An Interview with Duane Elgin and Patricia Albere
At our moment in history it is becoming more and more apparent to many of us that we need a new understanding of who we are and what our role is in the universe—one that is informed by a deep sense of unity and connection to the evolutionary process that has brought us to this moment. As Duane Elgin writes in his latest book, “The most urgent challenge facing humanity is not climate change, or species extinction, or unsustainable population growth; rather, it is how we understand the Universe and our intimate relationship within it.”
In this conversation between two of today’s leading evolutionary thinkers, Elgin and Albere will explore this new sense of “Bio-Cosmic Identity”—what it is, how it manifests, and what are the obstacles to it’s further emergence in today’s world.
