What wisdom can we gather from the Earth and from each other?

Teachers from the Omega Women's Leadership Center and the Omega Center for Sustainable Living discuss how their different disciplines help us ask the right questions to help us create the changes necessary for us to live from the heart, both as individuals and as a society.
