Bradford Keeney, Ph.D., has been called “an all-American shaman, the Marco Polo of psychology, and an anthropologist of the spirit” by the editors of Utne Reader. Elders of indigenous traditions throughout the world – including the Kalahari Bushmen, the Caribbean Shakers of St. Vincent, the Guarani Indians of the Amazon, and leaders of the Japanese healing tradition of Seiki Jutsu – have embraced Keeney as an elder and spokesperson for the old ways of ecstatic shaking. Following an academic career as a systems theorist and psychotherapist, he spent over a decade traveling the globe, living with spiritual teachers, shamans, healers, and medicine people who trusted him to share their words with others –
modern cultures in need of Elder wisdom.
The result of Keeney’s work is one of the broadest and most intense field studies of healing and shamanism, chronicled in the critically acclaimed book series, Profiles of Healing, an eleven-volume encyclopedia of the world’s healing practices. His autobiography, Bushman Shaman, tells how he became a n/om-kxao (healer) with the Kalahari Bushmen. Megan Biesele, Ph.D., former member of the Harvard Kalahari Research Group, writes: “There is no question in the minds of the Bushman healers that Keeney’s strength and purposes are coterminous with theirs. They affirmed his power as a healer.” Keeney presently conducts his clinical work at the Center for Children and Families, Monroe, Louisiana. He also serves as Professor of Transformative Studies, California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco; Honorary Senior Research Fellow, Rock Art Research Institute, University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa, and founding director of the Bushman (San) N/om-Kxaosi Ethnographic Project, Institute for Religion and Health,
Texas Medical Center, Houston.

An authentic Rock & Roll band playing Tribal Psychedelic Rock, many of the band's songs, especially live versions, are long, sprawling, epic affairs featuring layers of flamenco-style guitar and thrumming bass guitar over the steady drone of didgeridoo and percussion, though shorter tracks like "All Things Change" and "Time" demonstrate the band's versatility and ability to effectively craft more accessible songs.
Michael Flynn from the Emmy Award winning organization “Common Vision” joins us for the first 7 Generations~Pass the Feather show. Over the past 5 years, Michael and the Common Vision team have impacted over 45,000 students with their Fruit Tree Tour, where they teach the importance of planting trees for our future.
The team has visited in hundreds of schools throughout the State of California in a fleet of Biodiesel buses teaching students how to plant fruit trees for the future. Collectively
with the students Common Vision has planted enough fruit trees to yield around 250,000 pounds of fruit per year.
With experiential learning, historic skits, hip hop
performances, and drumming circles, the Common Vision
team makes a lasting impact on many who would otherwise never hear of these concepts and reminders of our relationship with each other and our home, the Earth.
The Creed of the Iroquoi, "In our every deliberation we must consider the impact on the next 7 Generations" is planted into the hearts and minds of children with every tree they plant.
A cornerstone of our ability to move into a more sustainable world is Sustainability Education.
For our first show we will be talking to
Liora Adler, president and Co founder of Gaia University .
Setting a completely new precedent in the way students are taught, Gaia University allows students to earn bachelor and masters degrees in a wide scope of study related to sustainability, from anywhere in the world. Rather than follow the old route of spending years
learning theory in a field of study that may be obsolete
by the time the student graduates, Gaia University
focuses on action learning and allows students to earn credits towards their degrees by building a portfolio of
field work, where the relatively small amount of theory
and academic instruction they receive is immediately tested and improved upon. Join us for this dynamic interview with a true innovator and visionary who is making leaps and bounds in professionalizing the
world of ecological design and sustainability education.

One of the world's leading experts and educators of straw bale construction will be joining us for the first Earth Shelter Show
Welcome Andrew Morrison
After witnessing the amount of waste that goes on in most traditional construction sites, Andrew began to study straw bale architecture and has now built countless straw bale homes and structures, including the Straw Bale Village , a community of straw bale homes in the National Historic Landmark City of Jacksonville, Oregon. Andrews focus has shifted in the past two years from direct construction to teaching others how to build these functional, beautiful structures that have far too many benefits to mention here.
He presents his knowledge in a series of DVDs, newsletters and videos that show how to build a straw bale structure from the concrete foundation to the last coat of plaster.
Andrew’s passion for straw bale construction is second only to his dedication to his wife and children. They live together in a beautiful strawbale house in Oregon .
