ENVISION THIS: Community in which we co-operate with each other, share resources, and work together as we enter a time of diminishing resources.
Our guest, Winter Robinson, is a futurist, who says, "The role of a futurist isn't about making lots of accurate predictions, but more the act of stimulating creative thought about the future that, in turn, influences how we act today." She also wears many other hats: author, consultant, educator, therapist, medical intuitive, permaculturist, and gardener.
Winter says, "I have made an attempt to understand why we have come to PEAK EVERYTHING. (I think that I know "how" we got here, just not why.)" So now she adds "realist" to the list of hats she wears.
"I just try live with the fact that most of us don't see it. So, these days, instead of writing (or talking) about intuition, complimentary medicine, and magic, I write about energy descent, four season harvesting, the need for community, the need to prepare, and all matter of other things that are earth related.
And I'm up to my ears in chickens and green-house greens, a rooster who thinks the sun comes up at 3 AM, and so many projects I can't begin to list them. The planet is still getting warmer, energy is still descending, and our economy is still tipping (big time).
The I Ching cautions us to not forcefully try to change things, rather we need to rely on the beneficial action of nature to correct things.
Perhaps that is all we can do, rely on nature."
