Dr. Vandana Shiva
This is my full interview with Dr. Vandana Shiva, physicist, ecological warrior, and founder of Navdanya – a national movement to protect the diversity and integrity of living resources, especially native seed, and to promote organic farming and fair trade.
For last two decades, Navdanya has served more than 500,000 men and women farmers and conserved more than 3000 rice varieties from across India. The organisation has established 60 seed banks in 16 states across the country.
Dr. Shiva combines sharp intellectual enquiry with courageous activism. Time Magazine called her an environmental “hero” and Forbes Magazine identified Dr. Shiva as one of the Seven Most Powerful Women on the Globe.
In this interview, the video on the left below, Dr. Shiva shares her message for the world: to not despair, to not internalize fear and hate, to not feel an artificially crated scarcity for a few people to grab but for all of us to be engaged in healing the earth and ourselves and through it rejuvenating abundance for all.
The video on the right is of Dr. Vandana Shiva’s talk last Spring at the International Yoga Festival in Rishikesh. Both were filmed as part of my India Yatra, a truly remarkable trip to spiritual India. 💕
