Subtle Activism, Shamanism and Indigenous Wisdom
December 8, 2016
Hosted by Dr. Kurt Johnson, with Ben Bowler, Doug King and our Correspondents
This subject commands incredible interest worldwide. Globally, cultures are becoming more convinced that subtle realms of reality not only exist but may affect our lives in ways far more profound than we realize. This perspective is fueled by a growing awareness of ancient and indigenous wisdom and modern science’s understanding of our profoundly interconnected quantum reality. Science and ancient wisdom meet in our investigation of these subtler realms of reality. The episode features leading voices from science and ancient and indigenous traditions. Dr. David Nicol, author of Subtle Activism, moderates. Based on his landmark book, Dr. Nicol (California Institute of Integral Studies and a founder of Gaiafield.net and Subtleactivism.net) examines Subtle Activism and its implications with indigenous shamanic voices Oscar Miro-Quesada and Luisah Teish, and renowned western contemplative David Spangler. Among other topics, they consider how intention and prayer may influence reality.
