One With All of Thee: Sowing the Seeds for Change – Volume 2!

May 3, 2017



Dear Friends,

I’m so excited to be offering the second book of the One With All of Thee (OWAT) series this fall! Sowing the Seeds for Change goes deeper than the first volume, as it gently guides readers on a path to positive life changes.

I recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds towards the publication of OWAT Volume Two, and we are nearly halfway to our goal! As a past supporter, I would be so grateful if you would share this link with your friends on social media to help me bring the project to completion. The campaign closes in just two weeks.


Here’s what readers are saying about the OWAT series:

“…unfolds a path that is seeded with pearls of wisdom…”
Jyoti, Spiritual Director of Center for Sacred Studies

“…a delightful ‘love letter’ from our disincarnate ‘friends’…” Jerry Weinstock, Author, The LoveSpell Secret

“For anyone seeking a better understanding of life or how to live it, there are treasures to be found here.” Robert Schwartz, Between Lives Regression Therapist and Author

I envision these books as part of a movement to help create a kinder, gentler world, and I am grateful for all of your love and best wishes. I send the same back to you!

A Lesson in Empathy From a Child Soldier

A Lesson in Empathy From a Child Soldier

By UPLIFT on Tuesday April 18th, 2017

Preaching Empathy through Music

A Lesson in Empathy From a Child Soldier

Kidnapped at the age of eight, and trained to kill by the age of ten, Emmanuel Jal is a former child soldier for the Sudan People’s Liberation Army.  After a harrowing journey to freedom he’s now living a fresh new life in Canada, sharing the story of his country and preaching empathy through music. He says he always wanted to be part of the solution: “And I believed that I am in this world for a reason. Everything happens for a reason. This past made me stronger.”

“Any human being that doesn’t practice empathy will lead a very empty life, because empathy is what makes us human. It’s like a call to our purpose.

Emmanuel Jal, hip hop artist and former Sudanese child soldier, shares his thoughts about the healing and transformational powers of empathy. And we bring you the best of a panel discussion recorded at the Spirit Festival in Byron Bay, Australia, exploring the meaning of true wellness.

April 18th 2017

About our Guests:

Emmanuel Jal was born into the life of a child solider on an unknown date in the early 1980s in the war-torn region of Southern Sudan. Through unbelievable struggles, Emmanuel managed to survive and go on to emerge as a recording artist, achieving worldwide acclaim for his unique style of hip hop with its message of peace and reconciliation born out of his personal experiences.

On the Panel: UPLIFT’s very own integrative health practitioner, Dr. Oscar Serrallach, psychologist and yoga teacher, Dr. Lauren Tober, Native American Lakota John, healer poet Maha Lakshmi and doctor of Alternative and Chinese medicine Jonathan Dao.

People’s Climate March Youth Convening, April 28: 3-8pm

The People’s Climate March is just one month away. Converging in D.C. across place and intersecting struggles for climate justice, we will have a rare opportunity to engage as youth and students to build relationships and power while strategizing for what comes next.

The day before the march, we’re attending a youth gathering to reground in this political moment, get trained in organizing skills, and join together with climate justice leaders from across the country.

The convening will take place from 3-8pm on Friday, April 28th. The program will include:

– a lineup of amazing speakers
– trainings on organizing skills and movement-building strategy
– opportunities to make connections and share stories
– preparation for the youth block and march on Saturday

Young people have a critical role to play now more than ever in advancing climate justice, and we are ready to show up strong to fight for our futures.

Meanwhile, please pass along the PCM youth convergence RSVP form and Facebook page far and wide to your friends and we can’t wait to see you there!

Big Win for Colorado Youth in Court

Colorado Youth Win in Court!

Colorado State Appeals Court Agrees with Earth Guardians Youth, COGCC Must Regulate Oil & Gas to Protect Our Health

After more than three years in court, six young Earth Guardians won their appeals case and elevated protection of Coloradan’s health and the environment above the oil & gas industry’s business interests.

Colorado has more than 50,000 wells, including thousands near Denver and other major cities. Since its inception, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) has simply been a mouthpiece for the oil & gas industry. Well pads have been constructed close to homes, hospitals, and schools and leukemia rates have been on the rise. The fact that the courts sided with the youth is a huge step in the right direction.

The fight isn’t over — Earth Guardians is still fighting for the rights for communities to ban fracking. The state of Colorado has taken legal action against communities that have done so, but grassroots community groups refuse to allow their land and their health to be compromised. From our backyard to Denton, TX to the gas fields of Pennsylvania, the fight continues and we will be there.

Support Our Fight Against Fracking

Taking the Fight to the Trump Administration

Six Earth Guardians are also plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed by Our Children’s Trust against the federal government. These young leaders claim that there is a “public trust” obligation by the government under the constitution to take necessary measures to protect the climate. The Federal judge overseeing the case agreed – ruling that they were entitled under the Fifth Amendment to a trial to decide if the government failed in that duty.

Trump’s Administration is trying to get the judge to dismiss the case, but our youth will not be silenced! We need you to stand up for climate justice and reject the anti-science policy that is being pushed into law.

Sign our pledge to be a climate leader and we will deliver a strong message to Congress the day after the People’s Climate March. If our elected officials refuse to act, we will take leadership on climate change. It is people power that will make a difference as we work towards a just, sustainable future.

Onwards and Upwards,
Christian with Earth Guardians
