Join us for a transformative evening with special guest Joanna Macy; Active Hope will nourish our courage and creativity for the Great Turning;The epochal transition to a life-sustaining society & the essential adventure of our time.
Drawing from her latest book, Active Hope, co-authored with Chris Johnstone of the UK, Joanna will share stories and practices that make us glad to be alive right now
in this amazing and perilous world.
Active Hope is about finding, and offering, our best response to the crisis of sustainability unfolding in our world. It offers tools that help us face the mess we’re in, as well as find and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning, to a life-sustaining society.
Eco-philosopher Joanna Macy PhD, is a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. A respected voice in the movements for peace, justice, and ecology, she interweaves her scholarship with five decades of activism.
