To Be a Plant (S2E1)
Co-founder of Originateve and host of the Origins Podcast, Ron Green, kicks off this podcast with his own origin story of how he first came to regenerative practices that would lead him down exciting pathways into Ethnobotany, Biodynamics and everything in between. Carl also brings to the forefront the struggle of paradigm shift when we choose to take on that which we did not know of growing up. This is precisely the way towards Holism: a persistent shift away from specialization. What does it mean to have relationships with plants? How do our relationships with plants work into a holistic vision of education? Why do we advocate for broadening our relationships with the plant and animal kingdom? How does an awareness of our ancestry and the mythologies we are born from relate to our relationships with plants? Special thanks to our dear Mentors: Robert Bly and Martin Prechtel who over the last decade and a half have continued to impact and influence the vision and mission of Originateve. -------------------------------------------------------- ORIGINS is an ORIGINATEVE podcast that addresses both the theory and practical applications of regenerative and holistic lifestyles.   Our hosts: Ron Green (aka Lucian Nathair) and Carl Emmons (aka Gluskabe) are the co-founders of the Originateve non-profit established in 2013--based out of Denver, CO, USA.

Ecstatic Risk-taking (S1E7)
Emergent Curriculum takes over our podcast and veers our hosts towards a jagged dialogue regarding the role of risk-taking as a quality and skill to develop as Mentors. Becoming a life-long learner requires risk-taking. The alternative, as Joseph Campbell would put it, is specialization—within such a scope a life-long trajectory is possible but at a loss for the holistic potential we all carry within. Robert Bly wanted nothing to do with any of this--he was more in line with the Mystics, like Hafiz and Rumi, whom he worked so hard towards bringing into our myopic vision field. Some of the issues we tackle in this episode: - Why advocate for risk taking? - What kind of risk is beneficial? - How do we equip our teenagers with psycho-educational jargon that entitles them to draw the lines of what kind of learner they are and therefore what kind of learning they will not engage? - What does risk look like at 33? - We are an insurance-based society. Life makes sense only when risk is wrangled. University degrees are great example of this. - Why is it that we lose the risk taking we all had as toddlers learning how to walk? - Where Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligence is largely misunderstood?

Play in times of COVID-19 (S1E3)
Origins Warrior of Beauty Cipactli podcast Episode 3: Play in times of COVID-19 As COVID-19 subsides in China, our co-host: Carl Emmons kicks off this episode with a comprehensive sharing of new programming that has unfolded in Shishi now that kindergartens have, thankfully, closed their doors. Our host, Ron Green, then brings around the stark contrast between how conventional education, seeking to mold the child into what society wants them to be, misses the mark of what Steiner states we should be doing: facilitating a child's discovery of who they are. Key questions and prompts include: - Daycares vs Preschools - Forest Schools - Helicopter Parents, Tiger-moms - Rigor in play leads to a rigor in academics - Mentor role of observation and evaluation - The etymology of teachers vs mentors - Why has the US dragged so much in coming to holistic models early childhood educational programming? - When a myopic notion of FREE PLAY is as detrimental if not more than standard academics, how to strike the balance?
