Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Sitting in a Redwood tree for more than two years, enduring the worst winter recorded in California history, having her life threatened, being ridiculed, misunderstood, and broken on every level, all for the love of a forest, speaks volumes about the courage of Julia Butterfly Hill. In this moving dialogue, Julia speaks about her heart wrenching experiences in the redwood tree she named Luna, and the work she has been doing since she ended her tree sit. Julia continues to speak out for the Earth, and acknowledges how easily we can become overwhelmed by the problems of the world. She shares the story of how she overcame her own feelings of powerlessness by choosing to do something that she knew she could do - climb trees, a simple choice followed by an action, which continues to have a rippling effect throughout the world. "When we look at the bigger picture it is easy to get overwhelmed, but when we look at how many simple things can have such a profound impact, we realize our power as individuals."
