#91 (Part 2) The Coronation: How Conspiracy Theory Breeds Separation, The Gift Economy & Healing the Polarization that’s Paralyzing Our Society w/Charles Eisenstein

As a Yale graduate who studied Mathematics and Philosophy, our guest, Charles Eisenstein is now a public speaker, teacher, thought leader, and author who’s work covers a wide range of topics, including the history and themes of human civilization, money, consciousness, cultural evolution, spirituality, and the ecology movement. The Key themes he explores include anti-consumerism, interdependence and how myth and narrative influence culture.

He believes that global culture is immersed in a destructive “story of separation”, and one of the main goals of his work is to present an alternative “story of interbeing”. Much of his work draws on ideas from Eastern philosophy and the spiritual teachings of various indigenous peoples. An advocate of the gift economy, he makes much of his work available for free, helping us all get closer to our center, where the truth of “we are one” resides.

In this episode with him we explore:
