It's seems Daniel Pinchbeck has quite a lot enthusiastic viewers for his series Mind Shift.
The questions if this series is continued keep popping up.
Can we finally get an answer from GaiamTV???

Mind Shift was the reason that I subscribed to Gaiam TV.

walkerparrish75, posted on June 27, 2014

Same here. Wonder if it's totally done.

I loved this intelligent and thought provoking show and I am really missing it... is Daniel Pinchbeck currently writing a book or researching the amazon? .... I can't wait for the next episode, hopefully the show will be back soon

These "Mind Shift" episodes are truly thought-provoking and unusually candid. Please continue this series with Daniel Pinchbeck. Thank you!

viviasweb, posted on January 4, 2014

Will you be airing any new shows soon, Daniel? I have really enjoyed watching this so far......hoping that it will be back soon. :)

dogen9, posted on January 2, 2014

I really do hope that more episodes will be produced, they were thought provoking and intelligent. Please bring back the series,
it truly was original, very well done, nothing like it on the web, certainly not to be found on mainstream (yuk) TV.

First of all, thank you Daniel for all your have done and continue to do in the expansion of global consciousness. I don't know if you, like the host of Wisdom Teachings, take suggestions for guests, but I would really love to see Jonathan Goldman on your show. You wrote about your experience with Santo Daime in 2012:The Return of Quetzalcoatle, and he has been a pivotal figure in the legalization of the medicine for ritual use in the United States. He is also a very level headed and clear voice in the realm of psychedelic spirituality.

Think about it.

Daniel Pinchbeck you rock dude.

So wonderful Gaiam provides a platform for this topic, too! Relationships and health/sacred sexuality could be next! There's so much sex out there, and I feel that people are still confused about how to integrate it in their lives in a healthy and fulfilling way.

I'm really looking forward to this show. My question is, is there any way to "record" or "save" episodes in a watchlist so that I don't miss them?

Interesting... I was listening to a 2012 interview with D Pinchbeck this afternoon. Now this evening I learn about his show. Sounds delightful and synchronistic. I look forward to it!
