Building Resilience in a Chaotic World~Podcast

We are living through extraordinary times as we navigate our way through the beginning of the 21st century here on Planet Earth.

We are neither in the middle of these times nor at the end, but steadily realising that our lives are now and always have been a journey with Mother Earth.

How we regard one another, us and Her, will define the choices we make in all aspects of our lives.

Our inherent need to dominate, building empires founded on acquisition and extraction, is proving difficult to live with.

We are steadily being faced with the ultimate choice…to live on Her or with Her.


Thank YOU!

  1. Thank you for such an excellent podcast. Resilience and flexibility are a part of my families vocabulary. There are always new things to learn and share. I do so appreciate being a part of your virtual family.

  2. Colette,
    Thank you for being a beacon of light and hope.
    You remind me that humanity isn’t a lost cause, that there are still good people doing good things here on Earth.
    I am inspired by you daily, and you have helped me reconnect to our Mother in the simplest but most profound ways.
    Blessings to you and dear Master Jack xx

  3. Oh…and apologies for hijacking your podcast and being negative there, re India! That’s not what your words were about. They were about positivity in resilience! I got carried away and went off at a tangent, as I had been thinking about it earlier! :-/
    Thanks again. Looking forward to some indoor camping!

    1. I am a long time supporter of Dr Vandana Shiva…she is my number one hero! I am following the plight of the Indian farmers and the way in which the criminal government are treating them! I support their cause 100%

  4. Thank you for this, Colette. My 80 yr old father has been stocking up a bit and we plan to grow some food in his garden.
    I feel your words about the privatisation of the Texas grid echoes what I’ve been hearing about the poor Indian farmers, most of whom I believe are smallholders. The work of a Ms Vandana Shiva highlights that the Indian Government has, with persuasion from Big Tech in the ‘west’ passed laws which pave the way for ‘materialism over natural law’. Monsanto will likely be involved.
    It’s sad.
    This centralisation of power is, in my opinion, something that will make humans rue the day!
    It’s more complex than face value but I know a basic truth and that is…it is NOT good to spray crops with toxic chemicals.
    Im increasingly thinking how important is to spread the word that you are spreading.

    1. In the thick of any disaster, it will be the resilience in local communities that will see us through. This is why I get my books printed in my local town rather than Amazon, post in my local village and save in my local Credit Union…it’s all about building resilence into one’s lives.

  5. I was wondering if you were able to sort out the issue with Patreon or if you have had to create a new one. Thanks

  6. Nice to listen after hard work in my balcony. Really enjoying your podcasts. Great tips you gave in this one. I also stock water in my basement, it is something extremely important!
