Bruce Parry on regeneration, egalitarianism, and his catalysts for awakening

We are honored to welcome the filmmaker and a friend, Bruce Parry to the podcast. He is best known for his award-winning documentaries. We had the pleasure of working with him on “Tawai: Voice From The Forest” which followed after a considerable amount of time of living with and learning from indigenous and remote cultures around the world. After witnessing so many remote people struggling with the effects of globalization and climate change, he left his work at BBC, and directed feature documentaries about the human loss of connection to nature and the effect this has had globally. He has become an expert in regeneration after living closely with a few egalitarian societies that have managed to preserve their connection to their environment.

Bruce takes us on an incredible adventure in this podcast episode, starting with his early years as a Royal Marine. He shares the deeply personal experiences in life that were catalysts for change and awakening, from falling in love to psychedelic mushrooms and Iboga, all of which led to living with the indigenous tribes around the world. All of these pivotal experiences deepened his capacity to listen, learn and realize the impact he had on the world.

Giancarlo and Bruce discuss the importance of building trust as a formative for creating healthy societies. Examining freedom and individualism through a different lens is imperative for gaining a better understanding of our ancestry so we can create a better future.
