Ep. 43 Ami Chen Mills-Naim ”Don‘t Be Afraid to Look”

We‘re Listening

Ami was around Sydney Banks and what is now called the 3 Principles since she was 9, when her father, Roger Mills, became an early student of Sydney Banks.  As she grew up, Ami followed her own path, became a journalist, and after going through a period of depression and searching for Truth, she re-discovered the teachings she heard as a child on Salt Spring Island.  Ami is an author, speaker, teacher, and activist, with a deep grounding in the 3 Principles.

EP35 Ami Chen Mills-Naim: Rewilding Activism

Rewilding Love

Ami Chen Mills-Naim talks with us about how she got into activism, particularly around politics and the climate crisis. She reminds us that spirituality and anger, and/or opposition, are not mutually exclusive, and protesting is often necessary to get the attention necessary for creating any kind of meaningful change. She shows us that we can show up, be human, and learn about - and fight against - grave injustices, without losing touch with our essential nature and oneness.Her grounding and humility have allowed her to learn about her own biases without taking them personally, while still committing to personal change and growth in these areas. She courageously holds conversations with others she disagrees with in order to impart this wisdom and to see if they can find common ground. Ami shows us that it's possible to hold more than one feeling and viewpoint at once (e.g. anger and love). She has joined many activist groups and enjoys bringing the spiritual side to the work she does on these issues. We admire her fortitude in joining these movements that are working tirelessly to push forth equality and human rights, as well as efforts to fight the climate crisis we face as residents of this planet.

#049 - Climate Change: A principles perspective with Ami Chen - Mills

Get Clarity with Jamie Smart

I’m Jamie Smart - welcome to the podcast. A few months ago, I had a conversation with my good friend and colleague, Ami Chen Mills. As well as being a very experienced principles teacher (Ami was one of the first people I heard talking about this understanding), she’s the co-founder of the Santa Cruz chapter of Extinction Rebellion. Earlier in the year, Ami wrote a Medium article, calling out her colleagues in the principles community for a lack of comment and action on climate change (the article was called, ‘An Open Letter to My Spiritual Colleagues: On “Spirit” and the Climate Emergency’.) I read the article and invited Ami to come on my podcast (she accepted.)  While I know that there is a broad range of opinion on the subject of climate change, one thing is abundantly clear to me: Humanity currently faces a number of existential threats, including climate change, global pandemics, possible nuclear winter and the dizzying rise of artificial intelligence. In recent years, the world seems more and more like a Marvel comic, replete with mustachioed villains and killer robots. One of my heroes, Buckminster Fuller once wrote,  “Whether it is to be Utopia or Oblivion will be a touch-and-go relay race right up to the final moment… Humanity is in ‘final exam’ as to whether or not it qualifies for continuance in Universe.” This has never looked more true to me.  So how can we usefully orient ourselves to the challenges we face in the years ahead? And how can the principles help us make sense of things that sometimes seem insensible? Exploring the answers to these questions is what this episode is all about. By the way, we recorded this before the full scale of the pandemic was known. For that reason, I’ve delayed the release of this episode until now. So regardless of what your current perspective on the whole question of climate change is, I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this episode.
