HiveMinds 010: Biomimicry, Regenerative Design, and World Healing with Ganga Devi
December 5, 2018
Ganga Devi Braun is a systems theorist and regenerative designer. Her work emerges from curiosity about life, love, death, chaos, and evolution, and seeks to reconcile the worlds of ancient religious wisdom, exponential scientific discovery, and the vast ecological unknowns. She serves as a conduit of information, inquiry, and insight in these often disparate spheres of human awareness, often finding that the gaps of knowledge that create fear and suffering in one of these silos can be filled by each of the others. She is guided by the principles of Tikkun Olam and Bodhicitta and the divination practice of Bibliomancy which she explores daily with the absurd number of books she keeps around her at all times. She is currently creating a podcast, titled Bibliomancy, with the hope to inspire others to develop a nonlinear sacred relationship with the books in their lives. Ganga Devi is in service to soil, symbiosis, sentient beings, and the ever unfolding journey of asking really good questions.
