SUE’s Soapbox Video: Enlightening Voices Wanted!

I’m looking for your suggestions. In an ongoing quest for how to shift our worldview, I want muses, mentors, heroes known or not, who send you into rapture, so to speak. It’s not just people who do good or who write well; I’m looking for a quality of presence that drops you into a more elemental place in yourself.

I will be cooking up ways to get such people into the public eye so the world at large becomes inspired and uplifted by them, and I’d appreciate it if you turned me on to more of them than you’ll see in this video.

SUE’s Soapbox Video: Join the Conversation As If Our Lives Depended On It

 

In this soapbox video I talk about a topic that’s percolating in our world: universal basic income. Three years ago I produced a program about it, A World Without Work, when people in the States had hardly heard of it, and now it’s showing up everywhere: Hawaii has just adopted it, Elon Musk touts it, and it was the feature story this week on CBS Sunday Morning. But what never is mentioned is how it would change our worldview, which is my main interest — and why I got so involved in the crop circle phenomenon. How do we go from greed to compassion as the basic way we relate to one other? What can bring that out? I invite you to dialogue about this in the Conversation As If Our Lives Depended On It. Hope to see you there!

SUE’s Soapbox Video: Bringing TED to the Table

A talk that I produced after TED cancelled my license for TEDx West Hollywood, deeming my speakers dangerous to their reputation, has over a million views now! (See Russell Targ’s talk)

Nobel Prize winners were among the hundreds who protested TED’s “censorship” of what it deemed to be pseudoscience when they removed two talks from their database and canceled the license for my ready-to-go-on TEDx West Hollywood program. On TED’s comment pages, people kept hoping that the discussion of ideas worth sharing would be ongoing, but it ended after TED closed comment tracks. Can we have that conversation on my SUE Speaks website? Russell and Larry Dossey’s talks being what TED found most objectionable, see if you think these scientists belonged on TED’s stage.

Cosmic Flashback to 1984

Back in the early 80s I did a public access TV show called The Cosmic Fuel Pump. I was approached to do it by Max Eden and his idea was that I’d be practicing to go on the circuit as a speaker, so it became a Garden of Eden production for some 36 episodes. Although I never did the speaker circuit but have produced events and projects to do my speaking for me, I look back at those shows and find them sounding a call that’s remarkably similar to what I’m sounding today.
