Podcasts are increasingly popular, where we can listen while we do other things, like driving, doing the dishes, or just downloading from a busy day. I am starting a new podcast series which has emerged from the publication of my book, Change Within, Change the World. Over the coming weeks and months I will be interviewing change makers who are at the cutting edge of new thought and consciousness awareness. Each guest has a unique and creative approach to what we’ll be discussing, adding depth and expertise to the topics in my book.
The reason I wrote the book and then decided to create podcasts related to it is to begin dialogues about how to deal with and improve our current world situation. Clearly we are fast approaching a tipping point in our increasingly chaotic situation, with major issues like climate change, mass involuntary migrations, wealth inequalities, cyber-crimes, food and water shortages to name a few. No longer can any single individual, let alone any nation solve these compounding issues alone.
As the pace of change accelerates, the signs of strain on the whole interconnectedness of the systems becomes evident. Just like a piece of elastic can lose its ability to snap back into shape, our systems on which we rely, our societies, our economies, climate — all our infrastructures may lose their ability to rebound. Fresh insights and new approaches are needed along with collaborations on a larger scale with different people and groups than we have ever previously imagined. So what I aim to do in these podcasts is to bring fresh ideas and go deeper in conversations with my guests and with you the listeners. The idea is to stimulate thoughts and discussions about what we can do both individually and collectively, to meet the daunting challenges we’ll be facing. We don’t have to do it all alone, indeed we probably can’t do it alone. As Dr. Margaret Mead said, never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
I hope you will join me on a regular basis by subscribing to my podcasts at https://podcast.changewithin.com.
