Coleen LeDrew Elgin
 is Co-director of the Choosing Earth Project. Currently the project is finishing a package of materials that can support organizations and groups to explore the great challenges and opportunities of our time of great transition. The materials include Duane’s book Choosing Earth, a study guide for group facilitators, a documentary film in two versions — one that includes stories, and another that is trimmed down and focused on trends — a conversation guide for the film and website resources. Coleen researched, wrote and directed the forthcoming film: Facing Adversity: Choosing Earth, Choosing Life. For over 15 years her documentary work has focused on pioneers of consciousness and spiritual growth. Examples are Science and Sacraments: Psychedelics Research and Mystical Experiences (2012); The Way of the Shaman; The Work of Michael and Sandra Harner (2017); and numerous videos for the John E. Fetzer Memorial Trust, including John E Fetzer Retrospective. Coleen has facilitated and led groups on the “great transition” (with Duane beginning in the 1990s), as well as meditation, cooperative inquiry, community health, and environmental awareness. Her MA degree from the California Institute of Integral Studies focused on Transformative Learning and her early background is in health research and community health education. A long-time meditation practitioner, Coleen has immersed herself in a number of wisdom traditions.
