How do we deal effectively with the accelerating tides of change sweeping over us everyday? How can knowing about the challenges we face in the world today stimulate our creativity? David La Chapelle, an environmental writer and leader of over 150 Wilderness Quests weaves together insights integrating psychology, meditation, story telling and the creative process answering this global question. Raised on an Alaskan glacier and nurtured in the mountains of Colorado, La Chapelle's childhood was a life of lessons about the wisdom of the earth. These lessons propelled him into a life devoted to science and the sacred. "I would call myself a cosmic ecologist," says La Chapelle. "One who undertakes this work should be ultimately curious." La Chapelle's passions are around healing, personal and societal transformation, mysticism, ecology and the intricacies of primary relationships. He invites you to connect deeply with nature, as well as with yourself and others. (hosted by Michael Toms)
