Episode 81 – Dawn and Chris Agnos
Dawn and Chris Agnos are two of the most thoughtful people you can speak with on the topic of navigating turbulent times.
Running the massively popular Sustainable Human Facebook page has put them at the forefront of a strong, if sometimes disjointed, movement toward change.
Integrating Heart and Mind
Chris has never shied away from taking on the controversial issues of today via social media. Over and over again, through memes, short films and simple questions, he tries to prod his Facebook followers to reexamine popular arguments they often take at face value.
As an energy healer and intuitive empath, Dawn takes the personal approach. In her work she has repeatedly seen how a focus on external, materialistic pursuits distracts people from the inner evolution that really does lead to happiness. She works to help people regain the inner guidance and self-awareness that leads them to happier, heart-centered lives.
Together, they are doing their part to make the world a better place. But right now, the world requires special consideration.
Turbulent Times & Inner Guidance
Elections and political movements around the globe seem to have created an atmosphere of divisiveness, which has a lot of us apprehensive, if not downright fearful.
It’s time to take a fresh look at the world, and more importantly at ourselves so that we may weather these turbulent times and remain firmly on the path to creating the world we all want.
In this discussion, Chris shares some of his own experiences regarding sniffing out hidden agendas; finding solutions that work for us; and a new initiative at Sustainable Human designed to assist people with their own sustainably-oriented projects and with sharing their inspiring stories.
Dawn breaks down how media programming affects us negatively, the importance of integrating your mind and heart; and the importance of developing self-awareness.
