Planet in Crisis: Being with the Earth


In this time of Planetary Crisis, we need to think about our relationship to the earth that moves away from seeing the environment as an object to be exploited without going to the opposite extreme in which we become identified with it. Michael Marder, our principal speaker, presents a perspective that goes deeply into the meaning of relationship to try to understand how we can be with the earth in these perilous times. Our panelists, Paul Antze, 

Wayne Skinner and Francine Wynn,  look at this issue from their own experiences in therapy, education and environmental action.


Co-hosts: José Miguel Calderón and Stephen K. Levine


Date: 6th December 2021
