Many of us have been working for decades to raise consciousness of human degradation of our home and the incredible positive potential for Humans to discover deep connections with all Life on this indispensable Earth. I began a campaign, “LifeVoice,” 22-years ago to lift up the voices of those who are invisible or voiceless in the industrial age. It has become my life’s work. Through the years, I’ve poured my entire life savings and conservatively 65% of my time, to date. While I’m not rich in things, I’m wealthy in things unseen. Still, the blue dot of Earth shines across the solar system as the single jewel of life in this sector. Though incremental change has emerged around the planet, overall society has not been awakened to the positive benefits of adopting consciousness as a way of life. However, passion, perseverance, people and planet are motivating me onward, and I shall continue on this path of lifting up the voices of the voiceless. What if we all acted from knowing we are all ONE?

On this #EarthDay2016, won’t you join those who are speaking out and standing up for the Earth and her people at the 2016 Earthday Summit? This special gathering will feature 15+ esteemed environmental leaders, innovators, activists, scientists and ecologists who are offering a renewed sense of hope, step-by-step solutions for local and global action — and restored reverence for Mother Earth. ‪#‎EarthDaySummit‬ Friends of the Earth, including Starhawk, Chief Phil Lane, Jr., David Crow, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez and others, will share their visionary insights and inspired actions for a healthy, sustainable and thriving planet.

May your bEarthday be blessed!

After 22-y of self-funding social improvement projects, I can say that if the wealth holders in our society would spend 40-60% of their income on social improvement projects, these islands would be a much nicer place. Whether it is building community resilience, giving voice-to-the-voiceless, or making visible-the-invisible, my project teams envision, innovate, and demonstrate community improvements, through inspiration, education, lean action and community synergy, focused in the areas of conservation, agriculture, and energy innovation. For several years I served on the Umematsu and Yasu Watada Lectures on Peace, Social Justice and the Environment, bringing voices like Frances Moore Lappe, David Korten, Richard Heinberg, Helena Norberg Hodge and Dr. Steven Schneider to Honolulu. I've been a social philanthropist in the fabric of the islands, via for-benefit, for-profit and faith networks. Change agent, strategic sustainability advisor, and inspirational public speaker, I've spoken to audiences across Hawaii's business, government, and educational sectors. Mixing a friendly approach, a professional curiosity, and downbeat humor, in my presentations, shift happens. At, I write about science, climate change, spirituality, and systems, and how these scale to social improvement.
