#LESSONUP:

(4:30) When you cultivate a practice of creativity, I think it helps you look at the world differently.

(9:02) Water is a women’s issue for women around the globe. That lack of water is a tremendous burden. Women collectively spend hundreds of millions of hours each day gathering water for domestic use. …It’s dubbed the universal solvent for instability to dissolve more substances than any other compounds. So it, and it because it receives these compounds easily and again, from that feminine perspective, women are built to receive.

 (15:04) Women that are empowered and embodied have a way of moving about and functioning in the world that’s holistic and generative and creative. And we’re able to integrate from all sorts of sensory input and emotion and imagery and use all these those in conjunction with our intellect to come up with really sort of holistic, creative, resilient solutions.

(19:58)  …an even bigger issue is our water footprint. The idea of a water footprint is it’s the water embedded in all the goods and products that we consume in our lives every day.

(21:05) The diamond water paradox the idea that water is about the most precious resource we could have in our lives. You can live a couple of days without water. And yet we dramatically drastically undervalue it in the marketplace because we feel like it’s a free resource.

(27:02) Is there a length of time that this takes, as an example we’re seeing right now because everybody is stuck in their homes in Italy, dolphins reappearing in the Venice canals because there’s not very much pollution. Is there a quantifiable time that this takes to allow the earth to heal, to recharge, to do this? Can we do it fast enough?
