Mungo Man and U DAY Festival
As Australia prepares to repatriate its oldest known human, 43 000 year old Mungo Man, we talk with Professor Jim Bowler who made the world famous discovery in 1974, about the scientific, cultural and spiritual significance of Mungo Man and this time of his repatriation. We also talk to Indigenous Events Director Sam Cook who is working on the “Return To Country” event, commemorating Mungo Man’s long-awaited return with cultural song and dance. For Aboriginal people of Australia, the world’s oldest living culture, this moment represents a time of great healing. For the wider Australian community it is an opportunity for a long overdue acknowledgment of the sophistication of ancient aboriginal culture, which is still alive today.

Eco-Spirituality and the Global Environmental Crisis
This episode explores the current global climate and environmental challenges our planet faces. It recognizes that transformative change is needed and business as usual is not an option”. We cannot make the needed shift to “a world that works for all,” that “leaves no one behind,” unless we make real transformative changes in our world-views, practices and policies. World-views contain our core assumptions about the nature of reality and our purpose in life. They need to shift to a deep sense of interconnectedness, respect and care for the whole community of life and future generations. In our practices- our consumption of energy and food, our carbon footprints, how we relate to others. We need to live compassionately, in ways that all can live. Our social and economic policies needs to shift away from an obsession with short term economic growth toward a new bottom line that focuses on full human development for all in a flourishing, increasingly diverse, Earth community.

Deepak Chopra on Consciousness and the New Holistic Science
In Deepak Chopra’s new book “You Are the Universe” (February 2017), Deepak concludes that while the old science of an external physical universe has been mortally wounded by the new science of quantum physics, quantum physics itself raises more questions than it may be answering. As a response, he offers a new interpretation of the universe—one infused with consciousness and which can serve as a reliable foundation for a future science that is more inclusive, more holistic. This new interpretation is based on “qualia” (units of experience) instead of quanta (units of energy), and describes a “human universe” that not only coheres with our subjective experiences in every day life, but informs what it means to assume the identity of a cosmic self. In this episode, Deepak illuminates what visionary quantum pioneer Wolfgang Pauli meant when he said that the science of the future reality will neither be psychic nor physical but somehow both and somehow neither, and why it matters.
