LEC Presents The Ancestral Mind

Posted in Health, Spirituality with tags , , , , on October 28, 2016 by Amy Gustin

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 over-reliance 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

Wildlife Matters looks at the Humboldt Marten

Posted in Ecology, Humboldt County with tags , on October 24, 2016 by Amy Gustin


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 this Thursday, October 27.
