The Self Reliance Summit 2016 Day Four

Nathan Crane interviews Gabriel Cousens on the fourth day, who is the author of twelve internationally acclaimed books including Conscious Eating and Spiritual Nutrition. Known worldwide as a spiritual teacher and the leading expert in raw, live, plant-source nutrition, Dr. Cousens functions as a holistic physician, psychiatrist, family therapist, and cutting edge researcher on healing diabetes naturally. His multi-cultural background as an ordained rabbi, an acknowledged yogi, and a four-year Native American Sundancer, adds insight to his “whole-person enlightenment” teachings.


His topic is Peace With the Ecology.The Essene Sevenfold Peace is an ancient liberation path recently revivified within the context of the Living Essene Way. Peace with the Ecology is essential in nourishing a global environment that supports the spiritual evolution of humanity. As we move away from a perspective of stewardship and towards the realization of our collective oneness with Nature, we uncover the true meaning of our divinely ordained dominion.

Shayna Gladstone is our next candidate in the summit. Her personality shines with radiant smile. Shayna empowers others to re-wild themselves through her tech start up, NuMundo, her music, her Earth Journeys and her permaculture lifestyle. Shayna is also the founder of Dream Activation, guiding individuals and teams through the dream and strategy of igniting their visions. A life-long performer, organizer and earth activist, Shayna has been “working” hard to empower others to live in right relations with each other, our communities and the earth.


She speaks about realizing our Oneness with Nature and Aligning with Your Life’s Passion and Purpose. She says we are not separate from nature. We ARE nature. This radical shift in consciousness must be spread far and wide. The idea that we are supreme and separate from nature is a global disease that has created consumeristic monsters with a disconnect from what it’s doing to the fragile ecosystem. She poses following questions to the audience. How can we facilitate the health of ecosystems in our daily lives? What do we have to learn from indigenous wisdom? How can we re-write our cultural narratives? What do we have to learn from nature? In her talk, she will explore the themes of oneness with nature, the importance of preserving and learning from our ancestors, and ways that we can begin to live in a harmonious way with the land.
