Presented on March 8, 2011 to the Austin Noetic Science Community (127 min. speech plus 13 min. Q&A), this is the fourth presentation on "Manifesting the Upside of Down" to different audiences associated with the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and focuses on happiness and ascension as key ingredients in deep resilience for weathering the disruptive changes that seem quite probable in the months and years to come.
NOTE: Based on feedback on the original presentation, this version includes an additional 3 minute clip featuring five promising approaches for co-creating sustainable well-being.
