I’M PLEASED to share an interview published in The Seattle Star, conducted by the journalist Lola E Peters. We tackle a broad array of topics, including the hard lessons learned by the Boomers, the necessary role of the village in every partnership, and the difference between Tamera and a cult.

LISTEN: The Multi-Generational Teeter Totter of Love (45 mins)

From the article:

“Filmmaker Ian MacKenzie, like most of us, got his first taste of Love’s caprices when he was in high school. Expecting to emulate his parents’ model of lifelong partnership, he committed himself to his first love.

He was surprised, then, and filled with guilt and confusion when he found himself acting on an attraction to another girl. Though “it didn’t go very far” (and “far” is always relative), he confessed his mixed feelings to his girlfriend. They stayed together a few months longer, but the relationship soured and she soon moved on.

So began Ian’s search for inner congruity between his emotions, sexual attractions, and desire for intimate relationship. His unplanned journey took him through the beginnings of Occupy, Burning Man, Orphan Wisdom, and, most recently, to Tamera, a research community created in 1978 to explore and share practices that could lead to sustainable, healthy, peaceful life for our species.”
