Announcing New Webinar: Relationships In The Age Of Ecological Apocalypse: How We Love And How We Leave, With Carolyn And Guest Speakers
Everything in our lives involves some kind of relationship—every interaction, every behavior, every thought or feeling we have. In fact, as Richard Rohr, author of Immortal Diamond writes, “All of creation is relationship.” Carolyn Baker’s forthcoming, 2015 book Love In The Age of Ecological Apocalypse: Cultivating The Relationships We Need To Thrive, discusses 16 of the myriad relationships humans are capable of forming and demonstrates why they are crucial at this time in our evolution. As catastrophic climate change threatens to eliminate many species, including our own, our relationships may determine how we live our lives and what we value most when we are surrounded with loss and confronted with the possibility of our own demise. This online, interactive course will reveal how we can utilize some of those relationships to help us personally thrive and collectively serve other living beings in an era of decline. We will explore five of those relationships, and will include guest speakers who are known for their expertise on one of the five topics.
