Circle for Original Thinking Podcast

An open forum for fresh ideas and timeless wisdom applied to today’s political and ecological challenges.

Each week we bring together creative thinkers from a variety of different traditions, asking the hard questions on the important issues of the day: political polarization, climate change, virulent viruses, and other symptoms of humanity being out of balance with the natural world. Our goal is to create a new and improved version of E Pluribus Unum, from the many to the one—and this time not leave anybody out. Join us as we embark on this quest.

Original Politics: Making America Sacred Again

To recreate a whole and sacred America, it is important to piece together the forgotten fragments of history that are currently keeping the country divided. Just as a traditional Native American potter begins a new pot with shards of old pots—to honor the ancestors and bring the energies of the past into the present—Original Politics reassembles the nation as a whole out of the seemingly disparate shards from our origins. The most significant forgotten piece is the profound effect Native America had on the founding values of this nation.

Original Politics convincingly demonstrates how the best aspects of the founding vision of America were inspired or directly appropriated from living Native American cultures— concepts such as natural rights, liberty, and egalitarian justice. Native America has in- spired what Parry sees as the sacred purpose of the nation: bringing all the world’s peoples together on one soil in a harmonious cultural mosaic of unity and diversity.

“In a brilliant historical retelling, Original Politics makes clear that America’s sacred legacy—while appearing to have fallen in the ditch of a crude and phony populism— is destined to be a thriving pluralistic democracy and a sanctuary of ecological values.”
James O’Dea, former president of The Institute of Noetic Sciences, author of Cultivating Peace and The Conscious Activist.

Why Making America Sacred Again Hats?

The concept of unity in diversity is behind the creation of the MASA Hat. It is why the original MASA hat is five-colored, representing the five colors of humanity. Moreover, “MASA” means cornmeal in Spanish, and cornmeal is a common offering given in prayer…

Interview With The Shift Network

June 2020 Book Launch

Glenn Aparicio Parry was in conversation with Harlan McKosato, radio host and producer

“Packed with deep truths and timeless wisdom. “
—GREGG BRADEN, New York Times best selling author of The Divine Matrix and Deep Truth

In Original Thinking, Glenn Aparicio Parry delves into the evolution of Western thought to recover the living roots of wisdom that can correct the imbalances in our modern worldview. Inspired by groundbreaking dialogues that the author organized between Native American elders and leading-edge Western scientists to explore the underlying principles of the cosmos, this book offers a radical revisioning of how we think. Asking questions such as, Is it possible to come up with an original thought?, What does it mean to be human?, and How has our thinking created our world today?, Parry challenges us to consider many of our most basic assumptions. To think originally–as in thinking new thoughts that have never been thought or said before–is according to Parry, largely an illusion.


The Circle for Original Thinking  is an inclusive, grass-roots think tank. Our mission is to seek out the deep origins of contemporary thought in order to remember and restore heart-centered wisdom for humanity and all our relations on Earth. We accomplish our mission through intercultural dialogue circles, ceremonies, workshops, and conferences in partnership with like-minded organizations. We invite your participation and support. Membership is open to all.
