Riane Eisler was a little girl in Austria at the time of the Nazi’s rise to power, which led her, early on, to wonder how it was that while we have such a capacity for empathy, caring and loving each other, how is it that we can behave with such cruelty. As she studied human history, she found that existing schemes of analysis – east vs. west, socialism vs. capitalism – did not provide a satisfactory explanation. She developed her own model of societies based on domination (of which the Nazis were an extreme example) or partnership, and she published her theory in The Chalice and the Blade, now a classic translated into 25 languages.

Tune in to the remarkable conversation between Lisa Garr and Riane Eisler as they explore the wide range of social ramifications of Riane’s wisdom – from education, gender and even sex to economics and the media. Here is a new model for understanding human behavior, and a blueprint for a better society. Don’t miss the chance to meet this remarkable woman.

Would love to see more interviews/documentaries on Riane Eisler going into more depth on her ground breaking, paradigm-shifting Chalice/Blade & Sacred Pleasure books. It would behoove GaiamTV to interview Riane Eisler again while they still can. Time is of the essence here. Missing out on such an opportunity is like not doing a show on Marija Gimbutas when she was still alive...

I appreciated the insight here from Riane Eisler, and I will be seeking out her books to learn more!
