Bernie Krause: The voice of the natural world
I do not see a contradiction in this. Yes - inner peace does not come automatic from the right outside soundscape. However, I very much agree that individual inner peace is always a "connected peace" - not a "solitudinarian" one. Individual development in the Western world is often understood as an "improving me". Developing the ego - regardless of the development of others or the community / system the individual belongs to. On the contrary, individual development in many Indigenous cultures is connected to the development of the community. "What is your medicine?", for instance, asks for the contribution that you can make - with all your talents - to the wellbeing of the community.
