Ep. 84 - CHARLES EISENSTEIN - The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible
Mar 21st, 2022 by Reconditioned with Lauren Vaknine
I don’t often get nervous to interview guests, but having Charles Eisenstein on Reconditioned was a huge moment for me.
He is, in my opinion, one of the greatest minds of our time, and his work has not only influenced my work and inspired me to be better, it has also stirred the deep inner knowing inside me that we - humanity - are doing it wrong, but that there are solutions to do life better.
If you haven’t yet heard of Charles Eisenstein, I urge you to go to his Substack page and read as many of his essays as you can, including his thought-provoking 2020 essay, Coronation, in reference to the then new coronavirus and all associated measures - measures he prophesised in his earlier book, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible, which needs to be read by every human.
In the episode we discuss:
- The myth of separation and the Story of Interbeing
- Parenting with a mindset of Interbeing
- The purpose of challenging times and how to navigate them
- Sacred economics
- The story of health technology
- The meaning of life
- and other totally intangible stuff that cannot be conveyed here on this page, so just sit back and listen :)
I mention in the episode Charles’s short film, A Gathering of the Tribe, created by Aubrey Marcus to offer us all access to the life-defining story Charles tells in the final chapter of The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible. Nothing has touched my soul and brought me back into a place of trust and Interbeing as much as this film has, so I would highly recommend watching it.
