Biomimicry – What We Can Learn From Nature Can Save Our World with Janine M. Benyus

Join us Thursday, October 13th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and guest Janine Benyus. 

Janine Benyus

Nature is far more wondrous that we think – in fact, as scientists across the globe are proving, the natural world is full of hidden design clues that can save our world. Biomimicry is a revolutionary new science that analyzes nature’s best ideas – spider silk and prairie grass, seashells and brain cells – and adapts them for human use. In her seminal book, Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature, science writer Janine Benyus reveals how nature is offering real solutions to human design challenges that can help us save our world– from creating toxin-free materials, to developing waste-free products and systems, to building entire cities that function like Redwood forests.

Topics will include:
* What leaves can teach us about gathering energy
* What spiders can teach us about weaving fibers
* What chimps can teach us about healing ourselves
* And much more…

JANINE BENYUS is a biologist, author, innovation consultant, and self-proclaimed “nature nerd.” In her 1997 book, Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature, she names an emerging discipline that emulates nature’s designs and processes (e.g., solar cells that mimic leaves) to create a healthier, more sustainable planet. Since the book’s release, Janine has evolved the practice of biomimicry, speaking around the world about what we can learn from the genius that surrounds us.

In 1998, Janine co-founded the world’s first bio-inspired consultancy, Biomimicry 3.8 (formerly the Biomimicry Guild), bringing nature’s sustainable designs to 250+ clients including Boeing, Colgate-Palmolive, Nike, General Electric, Herman Miller, HOK architects, IDEO, Interface, Natura, Procter and Gamble, Levi’s, Kohler, and General Mills.

In 2006, she co-founded the Biomimicry Institute, a non-profit dedicated to making biology a natural part of the design process. The Institute hosts annual global biomimicry design challenges on massive sustainability problems, mobilizing tens of thousands of students and practitioners through the Global Biomimicry Network to solve those challenges, and providing those practitioners with the world’s most comprehensive biomimicry inspiration database, AskNature, to use as a starting place.

The Nine Waves of Creation with Carl Johan Calleman PhD

Join us Thursday, September 22nd, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and Carl Johan Calleman. 

Carl Johan Calleman

In the past few years the world has witnessed changes in social consciousness whose sudden development the ruling scientific paradigm has not been able to explain. These changes correspond with the activation of new Waves of Creation emanating from the center of the universe that influence human thinking. From the Big Bang to the present, these Waves guide the evolution of the universe and, through their holographic resonance with the human mind, profoundly shape revolutions in religion, technology, economy, and social consciousness.

In his latest book The Nine Waves of Creation, Carl Calleman explains the quantum physics behind the Waves of the Mayan Calendar system and how these Waves allow us to understand the shifting eras on Earth as well as the possibilities of the future. He describes how, prior to the activation of the 6th Wave in 3115 BCE, our social systems were based on a unified cosmic order, but the hologram of this Wave shifted society to an all-consuming focus on Good and Evil, leading to the rise of patriarchal religious structures, slavery, and warfare. He explores how later Waves and their new holograms helped humanity survive the negative effects of the 6th Wave, such as the Industrial Revolution of the 7th Wave and the Digital Revolution of the 8th Wave. In 2011, the 9th Wave was activated, bringing with it an accelerated push for a more egalitarian world, a rising awareness of unity consciousness, and access to the full power of all Nine Waves of Creation.

In this program, Sandie Sedgbeer and Carl Calleman discuss how our individual resonance with each Wave plays a role in the quality of our lives and how we must consciously work to resonate with the higher Waves. Topics include:

*   What is the 9th Wave?
*   What is happening in the world today?
*   How the Waves of the Mayan Calendar System and their holograms shape our human minds
*   How we can help manifest the destiny of humanity hinted at in ancient texts
*   And more…

CARL JOHAN CALLEMAN is a scientist and philosopher, born in Stockholm, Sweden, who is recognized as the main proponent up the idea that the Mayan calendar describes the evolution of consciousness and the resulting inner changes in the human beings. He has collaborated with Mayan elders and have helped spread their own message and lectured worldwide on the topic of the Mayan calendar. His three first books inspired by the Mayan calendar have been translated to a total of fourteen languages. His background is however in the hard sciences, where he has a PhD in Physical Biology from the University of Stockholm. Articles he has written have been extensively quoted in the scientific literature and among may other places he has been invited to lecture at MIT, Cornell and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine.

Emily’s Gift with Michel and Ellen Shane

Join us Thursday, September 1st, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and Michel and Ellen Shane. 

Michel and Ellen Shane
On April 3 2010, Emily Rose Shane was killed by a suicidal driver on California’s Pacific Coast Highway. She was just thirteen years old.

Out of the devastation, grief, and horror at the senselessness of Emily’s death, her parents, Hollywood producer Michel Shane and his wife Ellen were inspired a beautiful tribute to their youngest child.

Emily had been diagnosed with learning and processing issues and was lucky to have the outside help needed to help her reach her best academic potential. In honor of her memory, Ellen and Michel founded a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity, the SEA (Successful Educational Achievement) Program, which provides one on one mentoring/tutoring to struggling middle school students like Emily, who could not otherwise afford this type of support. The only “fee” to SEA program participants is to perform an act of kindness for every mentoring session.

Emily and Ellen Shane
In this episode, Michel and Ellen will discuss:
*   How one copes with the devastating challenge of losing a child
*   The miracles that occurred after Emily’s death
*   How the SEA Program is transforming the lives of both students and mentors
*   The Pass it Forward campaign
*   Why the SEA Program addresses a significant need in our educational system

Ellen Shane graduated from McGill University with a B.Comm in Management with a specialization in Marketing and Organizational Behavior. The Executive Director of the Emily Shane Foundation, Ellen now offers grief support to anyone suffering from loss, and especially the loss of a child.

Michel Shane is one of the motion picture industry’s premier independent producers. He is managing partner of The Handpicked Company based out of Los Angeles & Montreal and has produced films in Canada, USA, India, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, and South America. He has worked with the likes of Steven Spielberg, Leonardo Di Caprio, Tom Hanks,and Will Smith and continues to work with world-class talent on his projects at various stages of development and production.

Lessons in Life from a War Child with Chaker Khazaal

Join us Thursday, August 11th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and Chaker Khazaal. 

Chaker Khazaal
Regardless of our race, culture, creed, or where in the world we live, all humans have one thing in common: we all face the possibility of having to face a misfortunate or tragic event in our lives.

The fact is, wherever we live—east, west, north or south, small town or urban sprawl—none of us are immune from natural disasters—fire, flood, hurricanes, avalanches, volcanic eruptions, and tornadoes are possibilities that can threaten, devastate, and transform our lives in an instant.

For the more than 60 million refugees living in our world today, however, tragedy and misfortune have transcended possibility to become brutal fact.

At a time when the narrative of world events contains so much hatred, barbarity, and inhumanity, how do we hold on to the decent human values we were raised with – like compassion, support, respect and love?

How does a human being who has been driven from their home, separated from their family, divested of all their belongings and deprived of all human rights survive with their faith in the law, in justice, and in the goodness of their fellow man intact?

According to my guest today, the answer is that one has to remain a dreamer while becoming a fighter for a better life. And that can only happen with love, support, and remembering that all of us, at any time, face the possibility of misfortune.

Born in 1987 to second-generation Palestinian parents, Chaker Khazaal – author, speaker, reporter, and Huffington Post contributor – grew up in Bourj el-Barajneh refugee camp, in his host country Lebanon, during the Lebanese Civil War.

With patience, persistence and a sense of hope, he applied for a university scholarship in any country he was allowed to enter while holding a Travel Document for Palestinian Refugees. When Canada reached out, it set in motion a chain of events beyond his wildest imagination.

At seventeen years of age, he was honored with the prestigious Global Leader of Tomorrow Award from Toronto’s York University, acknowledging his strong academic standing and leadership skills. Now a citizen – a dream come true – Chaker Khazaal is proud to call Canada home.

Having experienced first-hand the humiliation of ‘displacement,’ Chaker is a strong advocate for refugees, and aspiring writers from all countries. Not one to forget his heritage, he has traveled to camps throughout the Middle East, speaking to refugees living in conflict zones. Expanding awareness through education and subsequent employment for refugees, his novels and articles humanize external conflicts. He enjoys capitalizing on strategic opportunities. “Work hard and where you once felt displaced, take the time to explore avenues that make you feel welcome.”

A savvy communicator, he has spoken at a number of platforms including United Nations Headquarters, HuffPost Live, Google San Francisco, msnbc’s Road Map, International Youth Conference (Bahrain), and the launch of the 8th Arab Youth Survey. Addressing global displacement, Chaker’s powerful messages focus on the rise of terrorist acts, the ongoing unrest in the Middle East, and the importance of giving opportunities to the youth. He also speaks on other topics like social media and the process of writing.

His highly anticipated interviews, books, and articles reach an international audience.
In November 2015, Chaker was named Esquire Man of the Year at Man At His Best Awards held in Dubai.
