“Josh Halpern is one of the most creative, thoughtful, and knowledgeable educators I’ve encountered. He is uniquely able to make connections across diverse topics, and he does so in the most engaging and playful of ways. What is more, although Josh is grounded in the perilous realities of today’s environmental situation, he does not inspire through fear; rather, he impresses audiences with his sincere reverence for this planet and his desire to be of service. I have left each of Josh’s presentations not only having learned something (that is, quoting some new exciting fact) but having also having reconnected with my own love for life."

“When Josh Halpern begins to perform he ushers you across the threshold of another world: a world in which future fuses with past, animals merge with technology, humans are one with star clusters, disaster zone becomes home, and every orifice of Earth is the birth place of the familiar and strange. The beauty of Josh’s work is that he awakens one to the dire needs of our own world by revealing its inherent uniqueness, and showing us that the profane is always sacred.”

"Concerning this emerging new era, one line of thought proposes that the integral processes of Earth will serve as its lingua franca. If that proves to be the case, one of the principal seed bearers of this new consciousness will be Joshua Halpern who is, in my opinion, the world's foremost Metamorphosis Ecologist."

"I've watched Josh transform and microtransform and macrotransform for nearly twenty years. I've watched and collaborated as he has made sounds raucous and small, videos sometimes meditative and sometimes goofy (and sometimes both), costumes outrageous and feeling-provoking, photographs haunting and gorgeous, and relationships full of depth - explored in all of their adventure. It's been a profound joy for me to read most everything he writes, to dive into the wreck with him, to further understand life through his sensory intelligence and his willingness to soulfully engage with the most fascinating elements of the universe - imaginary, tactile, dreamed, molecular, great and small. To know Josh is to engage with speeds and slownesses, struggles and serenity - the stranger self. The small and the super-massive. The love and the poop. He is impossible to summarize. There is always more."

Josh is a generous nurturer who holds a welcoming space with sensitivity and deep engagement with the profound.”

“Josh has an uncanny ability of inviting others around him into their own bodies to sit with and explore the depths of emotions that arise from both the beauty and destruction of our Greater Body….Earth. Quite simply, he is a guide, bringing us back into relationship with the full experience of what it means to be alive in this transformative moment in time. We need more Joshes!”

“Josh is a warm-hearted Earth warrior with a knack for weaving together his many talents into psychedelic tapestries of wonderment. He is a shape-shifting trickster who somehow manages to blur boundaries while simultaneously cultivating a safe and sumptuous garden in which we are invited to join him in roaming, playing, grieving, and grappling with our fragile human existence on this beautiful and imperiled planet.”

“Josh Halpern – A man who knows no level. Josh has the amazing ability to put everyone in the room at ease. He puts himself fully on the stage of life and allows each person in the room to be drawn in to his orbit, whether during a musical performance or an informative presentation. Josh is fearless in his self-expression, yet vulnerable in his approach to the world. He carefully crafts his performative journeys so that there are no observers, only participants, both swept away and lead, to a destination Josh brings us to together. Josh is a visionary in his understandings of our species and our place in the cosmos, and his creativity gives us all a sense that no matter how dire, we will somehow be ok if we stick together and remember love, laughter, and a good costume.”

"Josh is one of the most heart-oriented people I know and I have received much from the conversations he has facilitated on difficult issues at hand today, particularly around "our fears for the future." Not many people who are radical--offering insight into the roots of problems--are able to be so present and so curious as I have experienced Josh's facilitation style. He doesn't merely talk about it, he actually strives to live by the heart, which means to listen deeply, activating and allowing the voice of the other to emerge and to receive consideration, no matter the content. It is to observe the respect of being related and to tend to that relation with honesty and curiosity about ways in which we may transform together--or not."

Joshua Halpern is singular in his multi-faceted vision for our society’s way forward. His brilliant and whimsical approach to holding space for grief in the midst of ecological devastation embodies the compost that decomposes our fears and transmutes them into the sprouts of a new world. You can see the light of a new dawn in the twinkle of the magic he wields. This work he does is as expansive as it is detailed, as visionary as it is pragmatic. His storied lessons take you by the hand and gently break open your constructions of consciousness to invite you to communion with the earth, to participate in a re-visioning of a new story based on love. What could be more important?
