Bill Plotkin joins Terry Patten on Beyond Awakening for “Beyond Apocalypse vs. Utopia: The Soul Opportunity of Our Time”. Bill is a depth psychologist, wilderness guide, and author—and a powerful and inspiring voice for the soul of natural places and creatures and for the parts of the human soul that are interwoven with the soul of the natural world. Listen in as Terry and Bill explore the centrality of the soul to our current crisis and our opportunities for cultural and spiritual evolution.
On Sunday, March 23rd, at 10 am PST, Terry and Bill will explore a number of big questions: What is emerging today at the leading edge of human transformation? Is our current, planetary crisis leading only to disaster? Has humanity gone terribly wrong? Or might this be a late phase of an evolutionary opportunity whose outcome is as yet entirely uncertain? If we are faced now with a definitive evolutionary opportunity, how might we fully meet this opportunity?
You'll be able to participate with questions toward the end of the dialog.
