At Portals we seek to offer great content to inquiring minds, and we also want to nourish and grow a thriving community by creating an ecology of practice for engagement and exchange. Your membership supports that potential.

Throughout history, the great questions have been asked, and great research has been undertaken, always expanding the territory of the known by shining a light into the unknown. Where is that cutting edge today? And can a community of people from all over the world, each carrying their own unique journey of discovery, come together to inquire at the edge of purposeful evolution, through dialogue and interaction? We think it is possible, and we hope that you will choose to be a part of this exploration.

As we continue our trace through this culminating epoch of planetary and human history, we focus on the appearance over the centuries of what could be called a “green,” or regenerative, impulse. Whenever humanity appeared to be entering the Dark Ages, or a very unhealthy or diseased condition, sooner or later, a savioral endeavor or regenerative impulse would appear through individuals, or groups of people, in various places around the world.

Another aspect of the green influence is individuation – the permission to be individuals and release your fullest potential as a human being. If green is like a rejuvenating in-breath for humanity, how does it show up? What are the human activities that allow the green potential to express and reinvigorate, rejuvenate, and revitalize human life?

In this conversation, Aviv Shahar and Jeff Vander Clute trace the appearance and major themes of this culminating epoch of planetary and human history, and the possibilities for humanity in evolution’s emerging and unfolding new wave.

We can also approach this in the broader sense of being a human on an evolutionary journey, with this idea that I get up in the morning and I get to practice being a better version of myself today than I was yesterday. Because, by my birthright, or your birthright, each of us is given the permission today to create a new draft.
