  • Common Ground

    Several ranching and farming communities living against the stunning landscape of the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana are faced with the decision of what is to become of this unprotected public land. As the community battles with the idea of proposing more wilderness areas, heritage and tradition are seemingly defended on both sides. When the people begin to raise their voices, they come to find that what is feared most is change. (Natural Heroes, Emmy award-winning filmmaker)

  • Joanna Macy and the Great Turning

    Eco-philosopher Joanna Macy knows that when things look bleak, human beings respond with great wisdom and ingenuity. Her story of what she calls "the Great Turning," the global shift from destruction to sustainability, is deeply inspiring. If you loved Joseph Campbell's insight, you'll be equally moved by Joanna Macy. "Don't be afraid of your heart breaking open," she tells us. "The heart that breaks open can hold the whole universe. It's that big."
