Pete and Duane’s Window is a program that explores our world in transition including topics such as consciousness, world trends, sustainability, spirituality, and our collective future. The show’s hosts, Peter Russell and Duane Elgin, are internationally recognized visionaries who have known one another for decades, and share an interest in awakening consciousness, both personal and global. As “evolutionary elders,” they see this time as pivotal for our species.
In collaboration with Coleen LeDrew Elgin, they co-created Pete and Duane’s Window—a view of the world’s dynamics and trends, the potential for conscious evolution, and the opportunity to live sustainably and compassionately. They hope this program will generate deeper inquiry and conversation about our common future. With Coleen’s help, they utilized the Marin Community Media Center and a team of volunteers to create the current series.
