About the Episode

Many of us agree that the way life is working right now isn’t actually working at all.

We work long hours for little in return. Our food comes from boxes instead of the earth. If we run into any problem, we often feel alone. We don’t have a community to lean on.

If you could build a brand new society, what would it look like?

After a long day skating with her family, Rachel reflects on the new life she is building in today’s episode. Sweden is not a new country to her - she was born there - but she is seeing it with brand new eyes. As she spends time getting reacquainted with the land, she begins to dream of what her family’s future will look like. But are her dreams realistic in today’s society?

If you stay focused, keep your vision in your heart, and work toward it little by little, anything is possible.

Tune in for an episode that will inspire you to shake up your life, change your priorities, start fresh, and begin to build the life you were always meant to live - no matter what society says!

  • Is it possible to build a new society that combines the best of our technological advances but strips away everything that does not work symbiotically with nature?
  • What would your dream society look like if you could create something new?
