GAIAN DEMOCRACY ­ A NEW WAY FORWARD

Do you get the feeling decision making is out of our hands? Do you give an insouciant shrug at how everything is shaped and decided behind closed doors and then announced and described in obscure terminology that anyone without a degree in politics and economics cannot possibly comprehend? Well then you are one of Œthe bewildered herd¹ and that¹s the way you are meant to be. Confused, alienated, disenfranchised, disillusioned, pessimistic and above all despairing of your own ability to effect anything very much in the world.

But the good news is, it doesn¹t have to be this way. This month, we explore an alternative system, based on principles of Gaia Theory, that could revolutionise our society and put decision-making power back in the hands of the people.

As long as there is movement, there is life. In fact, even when we think we are stock still, there is still a veritable frenzy of activity going on inside us on a cellular level. Movement truly is the be all and the end all of existence - Or at least it would be were we still in any sort of real communication with the essence of our Being. Sadly, however, most of us seem to have put the messages and requests of our bodies and of our spirits on a call barring system...

Katya Langmurr begins a series of articles on movement and dance and the ways this can benefit our health and wellbeing.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods (is the dollar up or down?) the outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country... More>>
