Jay Owen TV Series

Envisioning a New Path Forward:
Healing with Biomimicry

Join us December 17 at 1pm MST (UTC-7) with special guests Janine Benyus and Azita Ardakani. These two visionary women helped set the stage for our first Biomimicry Fireside Chat in May, and we are honored to have them close out the year with us.

Together, we will discuss how we can move forward in a way that heals ourselves—and our shared home here on Earth.
