Napoleon Gomez, the exiled leader of Mexico’s powerful mining and metalworkers union Los Mineros.

His book Collapse of Dignity is just out and it's a helluva read. One of my favorite interviews I've ever done.

It could literally change your life. In New Mexico, in what's believed to be the first county in the country, oil exploration and fracking has been banned. Local control. What a novel concept!

Dr. Elaine Ingham travels the world with a simple, yet profound message: Nature knows best and is capable of not only being more cost effective across the board and less harmful than our current chemically-laden and enviromentally dangerous way of growing food, but also, given a chance, can repair the vast damage that has been inflicted upon our self-depleted soils. And it's all about enlivening the organic biology, as compared to applying inorganic chemicals.

It sounds too simple, doesn't it? It is that simple, insists Dr. Ingham, chief scientist at the Rodale Institute, and career biology ecologist but it flies in the face of agribusiness corporations like Monsanto, Dupont and other businesses who fuel and fund the chemical addictions that have been destroying the life of the soil for decades.

Drawing from ancient knowledge and cutting edge science, Symphony of the Soil is an artistic exploration of the miraculous substance soil.

In this state John helps affect well-being by removing the negative content and burdens from our life and lineage. John also assists people in waking up to their true and eternal nature: Consciousness itself. In the last 26+ years, his thousands of clients include scientists, doctors, therapists, clergy, law enforcement, veterans,  and a myriad of entertainment professionals.
