Making America Sacred Again

Making America Sacred Again

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.

Praise from Our Listeners

Joe H.

“thank you for these podcasts…OMG…I love you so much…thank you again…your spirit is so wonderful”

Sara

“Thank you for all the work you do.  I have been listening to your podcasts since last year and they have changed my mind and my life so dramatically, in such a REAL way.  I have become more real, more alive, more LoveIncarnate, thanks to your sharing your love and your passion with the world.  When I listen to your voice, I feel like I’m sitting in the room with you and your interviewees, and I feel wrapped in warmth and home and love.”

Sir Pete A.

“Dear Joanna, I know that you know the importance of your work with Future Primitive to the many lives it has touched.  and, “Brava”.  But there is a dimension to this body of work, because it is a “body of work”, that I am not sure you know the value of.  Because you are chronicling lives and values unique in this world, and you are doing it with the very words of those we need to remember.”

Maryla

I love your play with words and your love for words Joanna. Your comment: ‘this makes life bear-able’ – brought smile to my heart. Wisdom contained in our language when we hear deeply and hear every word. And playfulness. And who if not a bear in us has a strength to bear the unbearable that is happening now. 

Naomi W.

“I just wanted to thank you you Joanna for your amazing work on future primitive.These conversations have brought me much solace and comfort in a lonely place,whenever I hear your voice and the opening music to each interview I feel my whole body exhale and a sense of companionship with kindred spirits.”

Michael G.

“Thanks for all you work. You are making a difference.

Timothy A.

“Thank you so much for the gifts that are your website and podcast! It is wonderful to hear a gentle voice of wisdom amidst the inanities and din of the Internet. I listen to downloaded episodes of your interviews as I negotiate the highways of Atlanta, and am therefore able to arrive at work in a relatively calm state wherein I can begin to properly honor the day.”

Irene

“In 2010 I struggled with losing my job after 11 years, as well as several other personal difficulties that I still do not feel capable of writing about. That said, I wanted to tell you that I discovered your podcast in the midst of some of my most difficult days, and I found your interviews to be such a solace.”
