Today’s featured film on Progressive Film Hour is Can’t Stop the Water,  a film about Climate Change refugees right here in our own country: they are a Native American tribe and they are in the New Orleans area.  The water is rising above the land and entering their homes.  On top of that, the water has been contaminated by oil drilling sites nearby. It is one disaster after another, challenging a disenfranchised, uncared for group, the Native Peoples of Turtle Island.

To discuss the film are its director/producer Rebecca Ferris, chief of the tribe, Chief Albert, and Julie Maldonado.

Mitchell’s guest this evening is internationally-known author, teacher, visionary Gordon Asher Davidson.

Gordon Asher Davidson has a long career of active leadership in social change institutions and movements, while simultaneously pursuing a deep, inner meditative life culminating in his powerful book, The Transfiguration of Our World: How a Light Alliance Is Transforming Darkness and Creating a New Earth..

Purchase Gordon’s Books Here

Gordon’s experience ranges from being the co-author of the Practical Visionary, and Spiritual Politics (forward by the Dalai Lama) with his wife Corinne McLaughlin; co-founder of Sirius, a spiritual/environmental community; founding director of the Social Investment Forum; founding and co-directing a Washington D.C. institute called the Center for Visionary Leadership; and offering clients deep spiritual guidance and transformational consulting for over 20 years.

Gordon has also maintained a 20-year meditative practice in contact with spiritual beings in the inner worlds who are guiding human evolution. This makes him a fascinating and unique spokesperson for the spiritual powers transforming our world today.

In his new book, Gordon illuminates what is occurring today from the perspective of higher spiritual intelligences who are guiding and supporting humanity’s evolution into greater compassion and understanding. He provides a vision of co-creation with these higher powers who are guiding the transfiguration of all life on Earth into a beautiful planet of light and joy, through unified purpose, love and boundless shared creativity between all dimensions of life.

While for some, the subject of spiritual intelligences of other dimensions–or even other physical locations in the larger universe remains controversial or a matter of question, Mitchell’s view and that of A Better World are that questions regarding this are a function of anything but holistic or intuitive, thinking, so we ask our audiences who don’t already wholly intuit–or intelligently infer–the reality of such intelligences to step beyond their intellectual comfort zone and tune into the discussion with an open mind and heart.

Gordon and his wife, Corinne McLaughlin, were guests on A Better World TV to discuss a book of theirs just released called Spiritual Politics: Changing the World from the Inside Out  in 1999, in what was a dynamic conversation about the need for political leadership and integrity in politics, as well as bringing to bear a spiritual voice inside its corridors of governance and power.
