gaialogue = communion with the living Earth

Our Gaialogues began in 2006 with the intention of exploring “what is it like to be in sacred communion with our living Earth?”  Through remembering ancestral lines of experience and vision that created cultures of wonder and awe, we see a universal spirituality and ethics emerging based on care and partnership for people and planet.  The seeds of future are to be found in the ancestral soul – the primitive soul. 

After 600 episodes, we continue to provide these intimate conversations to the public for free.  Listen and contribute to this community of voices who speak about our connection and partnership with the living Earth.
