The Living Earth Connection episode # 20 airs this Sunday, October 30. In this episode I present selections from The Ancestral Mind by Gregg Jacobs Ph.D..  Our Ancestral Mind is the preverbal, intuitive and unconscious emotional mind.  Our Thinking Mind is the rational, verbal and self conscious mind.  While Dr. Jacobs emphasis is on how these two aspects of our mind function, and how our overreliance on our Thinking Mind causes much of our ill health and unhappiness, there is also much to learn from these two forms of human consciousness, regarding the beliefs and actions that cause the ecological crisis. Please tune in on Sunday, October 30 at 9:30 a.m. PST to http://www.kmud.org.

This Thursday, October 27, Wildlife Matters looks at the Humboldt Marten.  Once feared extinct, they were recently rediscovered in Six Rivers National Forest and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park.  They used to be numerous throughout the “fog belt” of coastal old growth Redwoods, Doug-fir and Sitka forests, from Sonoma to the Oregon border. Now they number less than a hundred.  To find out more about these small carnivores of the Mustelid family, tune in to http://www.kmud.org this Thursday, October 27.

The Living Earth Connection # 19 airs today

Posted in Community Radio, Ecology, Humboldt County, Media with tags , , , , on July 31, 2016 by Amy Gustin

The Living Earth Connection #19 airs today, Sunday, July 31 2016, at 9:30 a.m. WST on kmud.org/ 91.1 and 88.1 FM. In today’s show I focus on the massive expansion of the marijuana industry in Humboldt County, called the Green Rush.  This agricultural and industrial expansion, located in valuable habitat, devastates the environment.  The fragmentation and degradation of habitat by Humboldt’s marijuana industry, has accelerated in recent years.  This ecological devastation is the outer manifestation of a deep spiritual sickness.  In today’s show I perform an intention ceremony to end the Green Rush and steer this region toward Life’s highest possibilities for the land, the wildlife, and the people.  Please tune in.

Before European contact, California was home to an abundance of large animals, including some of the largest grizzly bears in North America.  For an exploration of the ecological wealth of Old California, tune in to The Living Earth Connection on Sunday, May 29 at 9:30 a.m. PST on http://www.kmud.org.  Host Amy Gustin presents selections from A State of Change: Forgotten Landscapes of California by ecological historian and artist Laura Cunningham.   The destruction of ecosystem abundance by totalitarian agriculture is well documented in the history of California. Taking stock of what was lost helps us put our current situation in perspective.  Be sure to check out the book for yourself.  Laura beautifully reconstructs forgotten landscapes in her paintings as well as prose.
