A Sacred Steward of Honey Bees

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Debra Roberts is a sacred steward of honey bees. She is one of an increasing number of women who care for bees without chemicals or toxic substances and with thankfulness, nurturing, and respect. Debra likens the ways in which she relates to bees as similar to the practices of great spiritual traditions: being calm, focused, and clear in your intent, slow and smooth in your movements, feeling grateful, and approaching others with respect. In this Filiz Telek short video, Holy Bee, Debra discusses the spiritual practice of beekeeping.



How to Age Gracefully

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700

What would you say to your seven-year-old self? Play more? Don't yell so loud? How about 'stay weird'... as one nine year old puts it. As we move through our lives, our many experiences, mistakes and accomplishments shape how we live in the world. Hindsight is an amazing thing, and the ability to look back and consider what we could have done is a bitter-sweet feeling, as there's no reliving the past. We can, however, shape our future. As part of CBC Radio One's farewell video from WireTap, people from all walks of life offer their sage advice to their younger selves. This light hearted, touching and insightful video is all about hindsight. 'Dear 53 year old, it's never too late to try something new'. 'Dear 85 year old, indulge your sweet tooth.' Want to know what advice a 93 year old would give? Take a look.



Too Much. Too Fast. Time To Slow Down.

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700

"Journalist Elizabeth Kolbert and Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard each had big books in 2015. Kolbert's The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History winner of the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction takes an unflinching look at the history of extinction and the different ways that human beings are negatively impacting life on the planet. Ricard's Altruism: The Power of Compassion to Change Yourself and the World explores global challenges, such as climate change, and argues that compassion and altruism are the keys to creating a better future. Together these books filled with grief and hope feel like two sides of a coin, each necessary for understanding what it means to be alive during humanity's greatest crisis.Moderator Sam Mowe spoke with Kolbert and Ricard to discuss emotional responses to distressing environmental news, the importance of slowing down, and the role of art in environmental solutions."

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Growing up in East Oakland, California, Zakiya Harris straddled two different worlds: one predominantly black and the other affluent. Now, she's connecting those worlds through Hack the Hood, a nonprofit that introduces people of color to tech careers. Since 2014, the program has attracted more than 200 young minorities from local, low-income neighborhoods to learn skills such as website design, coding, social media promotion, project management, public speaking and more. The 16-25-year-olds use their skills to help out small businesses. Hack the Hood was part of the 2016 AllStars program that celebrates social entrepreneurs who power solutions with innovative technology.

The Privilege of Sharing Abundance

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700

In these trying times, it can be hard to think we have an abundance of anything. But there is at least one thing that is always in good supply and will never run out -- and that is kindness. Add to that a sprinkle of thoughtfulness and an opportunity to act, and it's nothing short of magical. This is the story of Trail Angels, people who help weary hikers by giving them comfort, food, or cheer without expectation of anything in return. Because they know simple pleasures can be like treasures in the middle of a journey. And they've all been travelers themselves. But while Trail Angels are technically the givers, what they receive is far more precious -- the realization that they have gifts to share, the delight in the opportunity to give them, and the joy that comes with exercising a limitless supply of kindness. Read on for more.
