Interview by
Joanna Harcourt-Smith

In this week’s episode Glenn Aparicio Parry speaks with Joanna about: American ideals were founded upon Native American values; a medicine tale about chaos; a quick shift of collective consciousness; the revealing of the American shadow; unity and the choice before us; addressing the wound in the American psyche; we need a form of politics that includes Nature; tuning to the Spirit of the land; these times, a reappraisal of the sixties in a higher level.

Glenn Aparicio Parry, PhD, of Basque, Aragon Spanish, and Jewish descent, is also the author of the Nautilus award-winning book, “Original Thinking: A Radical revisioning of Time, Humanity, and Nature”, and an educator, ecopsychologist, and political philosopher whose passion is to reform thinking and society into a coherent, cohesive, whole. The founder and past president of the SEED Institute, Parry is currently the director of a grass-roots think tank, the Circle for Original Thinking. He earned his BA in Psychology from Allegheny College, and went on to earn both his MA in East-West Psychology and his PhD in Humanities with a concentration in Transformative Learning from the California Institute of Integral Studies.

Parry organized and participated in the groundbreaking “Language of Spirit” conferences from 1999-2011 that brought together Native and Western scientists in dialogue, moderated by Leroy Little Bear. His newest book is “Original Politics: Making America Sacred Again”.
