Short Description: 
Riane Eisler discusses turning from the dominator world model to a world based in partnership.

Pleasure and joy are sacred states.

In a society in which pleasure is denied and commodified, taking pleasure seriously is a revolutionary act.

Join ani and Lyn for a conversation with Riane Eisler, author of the books, "The Chalice and the Blade", "Sacred Pleasure: Sex, Myth, and the Politics of the Body--New Paths to Power and Love", "The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics", "The Power of Partnership", and many more.

Riane Eisler is the President of the Center for Partnership Studies, and social scientist who is evolving a vision of society based on cooperative or partnership based principles.

As we create a new world together, what are it's guiding values? Tune in and hear how a society based in partnership and cooperation is likely to celebrate pleasure, art, and sexuality. Ms. Eisler's classic work in history illustrates that this has been true in the past, while the dominator model denies pleasure and emphasizes games of competition and war.
