Environmentalist, economist, and instigator of conscious global action, Manuel Maqueda joins us on Awakening Value™ to talk about ‘getting radical’. As Co-founder of Plastic Pollution Coalition and member of Midway Journey, Manuel tells us we’re destroying the balances on which nature depends by tossing countless man-made products into our environment, oblivious to the damage we inflict. The devastating effects of our discarded plastic items alone are radical, and Manuel tells us that our response must be radical in turn. By ‘radical’ he means returning to the root of our beingness, remembering our place in the great system of life, and acting as conscious stewards of that system. In Manuel’s words, we must heal all of our relationships – with one another, with the environment, and with the whole web of life. He asks us, ‘If we really heal these, what speech will come out of our mouths, what kind of structures will we create?’ Turn on your imaginations, open your hearts, and tune in!
