Wisdom from the curious, compassionate, & courageous co-creators of our desired and emerging future

 

Join me in learning from personal stories at the intersection of humanity and the environmental, social, and spiritual divides we are facing.  Hear from community activists, entrepreneurs, researchers, musicians, chefs, inventors, and more.  I hope these conversations will encourage us all to look at the world differently, change our patterns of thought, and get out there and engage where our passions meet the world's greatest needs. 

 
Joel has a unique and wonderful super power to hold space completely, making it safe and comfortable!
— Christiane Seuhs-Schoeller, Founding Member at Encode.org and Evolution at Work
Joel is empathetic interviewer and natural conversationalist!
