It’s not hard, without looking too far, to see that the world is changing rapidly.

And even though change is the only constant, we can see that the level of changes to the weather, human health, the economy and environmental degradation is beginning to simultaneously crescendo.

While these issues exist we are also dealing with transformation on a global level ranging from the magnetic poles of the earth changing to solar flares and global warming to nuclear- and petroleum-based catastrophes.

It’s time to completely re-think the way we been living the last 200 years or risk extinction.

The Hopi elders I work with call it “Koyaanisqatsi,” which means “A world out of balance.” Our values are self centered and upside down.

This is why over the next few months we will be focusing on holding community think tanks and broadcasting content on the show around issues of community building and community resiliency and how to be self-sustaining.

As always, the Golden Road will be not offering just entertainment but inspiring, educated and enlightening insights on how we can move our global civilization forward to a healthy new paradigm that will sustain us for many generations to come.

Wake up, get active, and do your part. Whether it be concerning permaculture, women’s issues, environmental activism, alternative energy or spiritual education, just do it now.

Co-create the world you want. It’s not if, its when. Power to the people. Support independent media.

Watch for our fall community building and think tank tour in November in Nevada County, Sacramento County Siskyou County, Shasta County, Placer County, Truckee/Tahoe, Calaveras and Amadour.
