ONLINE EVENT – On Behalf of the Biosphere
November 13, 2023 7:00 - 8:30 pm Eastern
Applying contemplative wisdom to environmental challenges.
The path of spiritual warriorship calls practitioners into service on behalf of the world amidst ecological collapse. There is value and sacredness in striving for healing with no guarantee of success. The biosphere contains all life, transcending the human-nature dichotomy and anthropocentrism. Join Arrow authors Adam Lobel, Rachel DeMotts, and Natalie Avalos for a conversation with The Arrow’s Chief Editor Gabe Dayley on how we can use contemplative wisdom to show up with fierce compassion at this civilizational precipice.
This event is part of a three-part series of online conversations on applying contemplative wisdom to pressing social, political, and environmental challenges. We’ll invite authors to reflect on the wisdom of The Arrow’s publications and how participants can apply these insights to our lives and world. Participants will have the opportunity to enter into dialogue with one another and the panelists to share, deepen and imagine together.
