Ecology of Spirit: Biocentrism, Animism, and the Environmental Crisis
Saturday, October 21st, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM PDT
This event will be livestreamed on our Givebutter page: https://givebutter.com/c/ecologyofspirit
Species extinction. Plastic pollution. Global warming. Catastrophic floods. Raging fires. The failure of coral reefs. Whales dying en masse. Forever chemicals contaminating mothers' breast milk.
Our planet is in crisis. And while the wealthy and governments pour trillions into technological so-called “solutions,” things are spiraling out of control.
What if solving the ecological crisis depended on falling in love with the natural world, and acting to defend those we love?
What if a biocentric worldview — one which places the natural world at the center of our morality — could help us access the courage needed to stop the destruction?
On October 21st, join us for special 3-hour live streaming event: Ecology of Spirit: Biocentrism, Animism, and the Environmental Crisis — "the spirituality of the front lines." This event will explore the connectedness of all life and focus on organized resistance to the destruction of the planet.
The event begins at 1pm Pacific Time / 20:00 UTC, and will feature speakers including:
- First Voices Radio host Tiokasin Ghosthorse (Cheyenne River Lakota)
- Rainforest conservationist Suprabha Seshan
- Author Derrick Jensen
- Filmmaker and activist Keala Kelly
- Writer and activist Lierre Keith
- Poet Will Falk
- Animas Institute guide Rebecca Wildbear
- Organizer Max Wilbert
- Former Buddhist monk Alan Clements
- and other special guests.
There will be opportunities to ask questions and participate in dialogue.
The mainstream environmental movement is mostly funded by foundations which don't support revolutionary change. Radical organizations like Deep Green Resistance rely on individual donors to support our activism around the world, which is why “Ecology of Spirit” is also a fundraiser.
We're outnumbered and we need your help.
There is a path out of the this crisis, and DGR is one of the organizations leading the way. But we can't do it without you. We’re raising funds to support global community organizing, fund mutual aid and direct action campaigns, and sustain our core outreach and organizational work.
Whether or not you are in a financial position to donate, we hope you will join us on October 21st for this opportunity to connect with kindred spirits offering light in dark times!
