People List

audio set

Julia Butterfly Hill is known for her environmental activism, but she is also a deeply spiritual and reflective being. In this dialogue, she reveals her sense that the most important thing we can do is to hold an image of our world as whole, connected, and complete. If we stand in that healing story with enough commitment and joy, as well as the actions to back it up, we are able to magnetically pull us towards that outcome. Her vision involves celebrating our wholeness and healing our woundedness, not through denial but the affirmative power of our intention. Subjects include her life’s journey from an aspiring business maven to accident victim to celebrated environmentalist, the power of being a "joyful vegan," and the importance of demonstrating empowering solutions, such as the conversion of a tour bus into a model of sustainability. She is at once practical in her advice, heartfelt in her commitment to the planet, and thought-provoking in her reflections.
