Xiye Bastida - Becoming a Protector of Our Planet
Play • 42 min

In conversation with Omega digital media director Cali Alpert, Xiye Bastida shares her view of climate justice and how it is different from environmentalism, her deep sense of gratitude for Mother Nature, and the meaning of reciprocity across Indigenous cultures worldwide.

As she carries the wisdom of a new generation with her, she emphasizes connection—how we need to connect with our elders, and learn from our history, instead of blaming ancestors for the injustices and the extractive practices that have developed. Though we are living through a complex crisis, the best thing we can do is to connect with nature, so that we are committed to fiercely protect this treasure.

This episode is part of Season 4 of Omega's award-winning podcast, Dropping In. Join us for intimate conversations with some of Omega's trailblazing spiritual teachers, thought leaders, and social visionaries, to explore the many ways to awaken the best in the human spirit.
