This has been amazing listening to your story Mark - and thank you Clare for holding the space to enable us to hear the story.It's totally devastating, heart rending and hopeful at the same time. I have now gone into the archives to find out all about this river! Much love to you both. ~ Chantal in South Africa  

Thank you so much; I feel so inspired by Mark's speaking of his sacred connection; I know how much I yearn for this way of life, this intuitive way of living... reminds me of ancient peoples and ways.

Below is the second half video of the conversation. To hear the talk in it's entirety please listen to the audio above. Thank you!

40 years ago on May 25th, after a decade of trying to stop his beloved Stanislaus river being damned, Mark did something that blew open the hearts of people everywhere. He chained himself to the canyon floor, threw away the key and prepared to be drowned along with 9 million years worth of evolution. He put his life on the line for the river that had taught him how to be a man.  

Anyone that knows Mark, knows the power of his incredible heart - a canyon of love cleaned out by the grief of losing his river. That love still flows in acts of pure service to all that see this world as sacred and are given to humanities awakening.

In this conversation, you are invited into the love between husband and wife team Mark and Clare Dubois, as Clare interviews Mark to help him express this story that is such a powerful invitation to us all to stand on behalf of all we love. You will hear lessons from the river, powerful perspectives for the time we're in and Marks personal journey both into and out of that moment in his life.
