The Future Is Beautiful Live Sessions // As we vision a new normal

As we make our way towards Series Four, we wanted to take some time to connect LIVE and be together as we make sense (or sit in this uncertainty) of what a new normal is in a post Corona world.

Our first few episodes of this new series will come from excerpts of these conversations that we are hosting now. Before we bring new guests to the show, we wanted to open up space for the wisdom of our patrons, and connect back with some of our guests from previous episodes.

We have been building a community over ten years now, three with the podcast – and rely on patron support and Amisha donating her time (and often money) to keep this show alive. We know how important these conversations have been to many of you. If you can support the show at this time by becoming a patron, joining presence collective and/or buying a ticket for one of these live sessions – it will be a massive help! And so much value for you too. All links below.

As we live through these extraordinary times, it’s so important to remember that we create the future, we offer these live spaces so we may co-create this new paradigm together.



Live with Bayo Akomolafe, Manish Jain and Charles Eisenstein // Interbeing in this now – Saturday 13th June 

5-7pm BST, 9.30-11.30pm IST, 12-2pm EAT

In this LIVE we are joined by Bayo Akomolafe (E13), Manish Jain (E39), and Charles Eisenstein (E1). As we stand here in the waters of a global pandemic and a global uprising, how do we navigate our interbeing? We will discuss how we navigate this moment that we find ourselves in – is this the opening for the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible? Is this the end of the global dominant education system? How do we slow down in these urgent times? What does it mean to be a sacred activist? How do we live a life of interbeing? How do we keep unlearning and create systems change? Has the dominant system fallen? How do we know what’s real and what’s conspiracy? There are many questions – come and join us for this conversation and bring yours as we spend this sweet moment together.

Live with Nina Simons, Stephanie Mines and Zerbanoo Gifford // Leadership in creating the new normal – Wednesday 3rd June

8-9.30pm BST, 12-1.30pm PDT, 3-4.30PM EDT, 10-11.30pm EAT

In this LIVE we speak with three of our female leaders who have been leading community around the intersection of nature, consciousness, regeneration and the feminine for many years. Our conversation will focus around how to lead systemic change in this moment in time. Our guests are each authors and visionaries: Nina Simons (E81) co-founder of Bioneers, Stephanie Mines (E72) founder of Climate Change & Consciousness and Zerbanoo Gifford (E6) founder of ASHA centre. In this conversation we will be asking for their perspectives on how they each see this moment we find ourselves in globally, and how this impacts (or doesn’t) the work of community weaving, leading from the feminine and systems thinking.

Live with Sacha Stone and Mallence Bart-Williams // What is behind the masks? – Friday 29th May 

9-10.15am UK, 4-5.30pm Bali, 1.30-3pm New Delhi

Have you been questioning the mainstream media narrative on this pandemic? Are you concerned about the idea of mandatory vaccinations (and their ingredients list) and having many of our freedoms taken away during this time? For a conversation on what has been happening and what it means for the future, we will be in conversation with our guests Sacha Stone (E31) and Mallence Bart-Williams (E24). Both have been speaking out for many years about the research they have been doing and what they have uncovered. Both have had their social media channels censored during the past two months. In this conversation we will explore what being sovereign in a global pandemic means and how to centre your health, freedom and discern some of the narratives that are popular at this time. Both Sacha and Mallence are plugged into what is happening in many developing countries right now and will be offering us a perspective that is not what is being told on news in western countries.
