Living the Climate/COVID Emergencies: Apocalypse or Awakening? (Online)
With Matthew Fox, PhD and Karen Mahon Carrington
May 29 - 30, 2020
The world that we have known is unravelling. While we have long known the lives we have been living were unsustainable, the COIVD crisis, layered upon the climate crisis, call us into a new level of inquiry. How do we find meaning, purpose, and wholeness in a world in chaos? As the old world crumbles, a new world struggles to be born. What is our role as we midwife this new world into being?
Join us for a discussion on how to find our ground, and turn apocalyptic news into an awakening of our species that moves us to a new chapter. In this workshop we will offer a map of four paths that can help us navigate through these difficult times. This framework provides a toolkit for living a purposeful and joyful life, not in spite of our difficulties, but informed and enlivened by them.
