We discuss the critical ideas of our time and parlay them into action for the defense and regeneration of natural communities. Key topics include the rediscovery of wild nature, ecological renewal and resistance, and healing from the trauma of individualistic society. We travel deep into ancient forests, align with the struggles and ways of Earth-based people, and rekindle the mysteries of intuition. We join today’s brightest visionaries in this momentous work of reimagining a world where humanity can find its way back into the web of life.

Ayana Young

PODCAST HOST

Ayana Young is a lover and protector of wild nature. She was studying Ecology at Columbia University when the Occupy Wall Street movement began. Amid the burgeoning resistance in Zuccotti Park, she created the Environmental working group with March Young to help orient the movement to the realities of a suffering planet. From there she moved West to her beloved Cascadian bioregion, starting an organic farm and wild foods cartel on an Oregon mountaintop. In Portland, she had the fortune of learning from the herbalist Cascade Anderson Geller. Ayana is currently studying Restoration of Natural Systems in Victoria, BC, and creating an ecological research center and native plants nursery in the Southern tip of the Cascadian bioregion. She teaches about empowered earth stewardship and leads biodiversity enhancement workshops across North America.
