About Us

If we're headed down a path that's leading us to degradation, dehumanization, and disconnection from the things that matter most, simultaneously endangering our earth's clean water, clean air, and biodiversity, then we must ask boldly: What for?Because "progressing forward" is meaningless if we're myopic in understanding where we're really headed and are facing the wrong direction to begin with.In the midst of the uncertainty, it's become crystal clear that it's time to redefine what it means to live lives of abundance, recalibrate our measurements of progress, and dream up the world that we do want to realize for our lifetimes and beyond.Illuminating our paths to ecological balance, intersectional sustainability, and true abundance and wellness for all, Green Dreamer with Kamea Chayne is a podcast and multimedia journal for those who are yearning to live with vitality and fulfillment and who are dreaming of a thriving planet to call home.
