March 25, 2012 Crossing over the Bridge (37) Panel: Allen L. Adkins, Kingsley L. Dennis & Leonardo Wild

Listen/view program. Crossing over the Bridge (37 in Series) Panel Allen L. Adkins Pioneer & Researcher, Kingsley L. Dennis Author, Researcher & Futurist and Leonardo Wild Author & Filmmaker “Monetary, Climate & Food Systems – Dialogue in Transition.” After growing up in suburban Dallas and Houston, Texas Allen embarked on a wide array of life experiences from traveling the world as a merchant marine engineer and moving to Hawaii where he began a life-long interest in meditation and health and healing practices to starting high-tech companies in Silicon Valley and becoming a pioneer in the CD-ROM technology – developing among the very first CD-ROM applications and pioneering the first PC based CD-ROM recording systems. During this time he has widely traveled to 50 countries with extensive travel to Japan and Europe. While on a journey to India to deliver recording equipment to the Dalia Lama, Allen went to Kathmandu, Nepal to study Sanskrit and Ayurvedic Medicine with Dr. Manna Vajra who had carried on this practice in his family lineage for 1,000 years. This and subsequent early work with raw and living foods in the mid 1970’s was to form a life long focus and passion for understanding the intricacies of our human life and health secrets. After moving from Hawaii to California in 1979, Allen took a turn toward high technology at a critical time in the burgeoning Silicon Valley era from the mid 1980’s to the mid 1990’s. Kingsley Dennis, PhD, is a sociologist, researcher, and writer. He co-authored ‘After the Car’ (Polity, 2009), which examines post-peak oil societies and mobility. He is also the author of ‘New Consciousness for a New World’ (2011); as well as ‘The Struggle for Your Mind: Conscious Evolution & The Battle to Control How We Think’ (2012). He is also the co-editor of ‘The New Science & Spirituality Reader'(2012). Kingsley worked in the Sociology Dept. at Lancaster University, UK, and is now a visiting fellow at the Centre for Mobilities Research (CeMoRe) at Lancaster Uni. He is now collaborating with the new paradigm Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University, is a co-initiator of the Worldshift Movement and a co-founder of WorldShift International. Kingsley is the author of numerous articles on complexity theory, social technologies, new media communications, and conscious evolution. As well as academic training Kingsley has also lived and worked for many years overseas, including five years in Turkey. He currently lives in Andalusia in Spain and is working on new book material. He continues to research, write, travel, grow his own vegetables, and seeks answers to many questions. A novelist and scriptwriter, Leonardo is a man of many “professions,” among them wooden-house designer, sailor, inventor, scientist, corporate image consultant. In 2007, he was privately asked by one of the advisors to the Minister of Energy and Petroleum, on how to present the Yasuni-ITT Initiative to the world. This triggered his interest in the dilemma: to leave the oil underground, or to extract it endangering whole ecosystems. And he realized that, in order for the news of the project to be spread, there had to be an independent account of it with no vested interests except to tell the story from many different viewpoints. This led him to look for no-strings-attached funding for the film, and a crew ready to be part of the project simply because of the importance of the subject matter. He speaks Spanish, English and German. With over 41 scripts produced (short films, TV spots, documentaries), this is his second feature-length documentary.

  1. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s
    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create
    your theme? Exceptional work!
