To Protect, Conserve & Heal: Activism for Water

Today we discuss ways we can empower ourselves as water activists in the face of drought and fracking, including by attending Bless the Lake in Oakland on World Water Day (Sunday, March 22 blessthelake.com). Host Laura Garzon Chica (@EarthMediaArts) talks with spiritual guide and Bless the Lake organizer Amelía Aeon Karris (knowtheself.com), David Nicol of the Gaiafield Project (gaiafield.net), and David Braun of Americans Against Fracking and Californians Against Fracking (americansagainstfracking.org and californiansagainstfracking.org). Instead of assessing new state and federal rules to conserve and protect water, we focus on how subtle activism of the spirit, like mass meditation, can shift collective consciousness and strengthen our relationship to this vital and sacred life force. We also welcomed surprise (though invited) guest Luisah Teish, an Oshun chief in the Yoruba Lucumi tradition (yeyeteish.com).
