The Beauty of Human Skin in Every Color

 
It has been 128 years since the last country ablolished slavery, and 53 years since Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech, yet we still live in a world where the color of our skin gives a first and leaves a lasting impression. Angelica Dass's portrait project, Humanae, challenges how we think about skin color and tthnicity. What does it mean for us to be "black, white, yellow, red." Is it the eye, the nose, the mouth, the hair? Or does it have to do with our origin, nationality, or bank account? Watch this personal TED talk about Humanae and Dass'spursuit to document hunaity's "true" colors.

Navajo Justice: Life Comes From It

Justice is truth in action.

- Benjamin Disraeli -

Navajo Justice: Life Comes From It

"The Navajo word for "law" is beehaz-aanii. It means something fundamental and absolute, something that has existed from the beginning of time...It's the source of a healthy, meaningful life. Navajos say that "life comes from beehaz-aanii," because it is the essence of life. Imagine a system of law that permits anyone to say anything they like during the course of a dispute, and no authority figure has to determine what is "true." Think of a system with an end goal of restorative justice, which uses equality and the full participation of disputants in a final decision. If we say of law that "life comes from it," then where there is hurt, there must be healing." Former Chief Justice of the Navajo Nation shares more in this powerful piece. { read more }

The Body's Grace: Insights from a Paralyzed Yoga Teacher

Connecting the mind and body is not just a health strategy. It is a movement of consciousness that can change the world.

- Matthew Sanford -

The Body's Grace: Insights from a Paralyzed Yoga Teacher

"Matthew Sanford says he's never seen anyone live more deeply in their body -- in all its grace and all its flaws -- without becoming more compassionate toward all of life. He's a renowned teacher of yoga. And he's been paralyzed from the chest down since a car accident in 1978, when he was 13. He teaches yoga to the able-bodied. He also adapts yoga for people with ailments and disabilities, including military veterans. But Matthew Sanford has wisdom for us all on the strength and grace of our bodies, as we move through the ordinary span of our lives." { read more }

A World of Solutions

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

- Albert Einstein -

A World of Solutions

Directed by Louie Schwartzberg and narrated by Morgan Freeman, this video shows the beauty and natural violence of millions of years of evolution and the impact of humans on this complex system in less than 200 years. However, while we are still in peril, we have the means to solve our problems in the present. Just as mycelium root systems feed all plant life, humans can use modern technology, such as the Internet and mass media for positive change. { read more }
